Skinny Strawberry Frosty

by Alli

I came up with the recipe for Skinny Strawberry Frosty completely by accident. Don’t ya just love when that happens?

I was actually making strawberry smoothies. The frozen strawberries were dumped into the blender and I opened the fridge to grab the almond milk and realized that there was only a little bit in the carton. What to do? What to do?

As I was scanning the contents of the fridge, my eyes rested on a bottle of Coffee Mate sugar free french vanilla creamer (the liquid kind).  I had a light bulb moment. It’s liquid. It’s sugar free. It’ll work!

The finished product turned out to be more like a frosty than a smoothie (meaning it has to be eaten with a spoon). I love it! So, instead of strawberry smoothies, I usually make my new and improved Skinny Strawberry Frosty. And now, you can, too!

Helpful Hint:  This recipe calls for frozen whole strawberries (no sugar added).

To make a smoothie, add more almond milk.  For an even thicker consistency, add more creamer and less almond milk.  And did I mention that it’s very low in calories?  The brand of almond milk, etc. that I use comes in under 150 calories.  Yum!

  • 1/4 cup Coffee Mate Sugar Free French Vanilla Liquid Creamer
  • Splenda (or other sweetener) to taste (I use two teaspoons)

My Skinny Strawberry Frosty is thick, creamy and delicious. It's also low in fat and calories. Pass the spoon!

This looks wonderful! Do you have any idea of the calorie count for it?

The almond milk I use is 30 calories for a cup and the strawberries are 50 for one cup. I’m not at home right now, but I think the coffee mate is about 15 calories per tsp. So it’s under 150. I should have added the calorie count. 🙂

Interesting creamer ingredient! Never would have thought.. Of course my creamer in my house has tons of sugar….Gotta cover up that coffee taste.

I’m glad I was almost out of almond milk or I would have never thought to use creamer. It really thickens it up.

I love this frosty! Be careful, because I’ve had a couple of brain freezes when eating it too fast. 🙂

Now, that is a good idea, Alli! LOL It IS funny when you start substituting things – my family still swears that the casserole I made a couple Thanksgivings ago was the best one ever – and I had just thrown stuff together when I ran out of the original ingredients and the store was closed! LOL Now I can’t re-create it!

Skinny !!!!! Yes! Now, I am on the Atkins diet but I think this works for Phase 2 no problemo. PINNED IT on TWO boards so I am sure not to lose track of it.
