“YUMMY!!” That’s what my kids said with their first taste. This Chocolate Almond Frosty is a refreshing drink as a snack or dessert. And all of these ingredients I had on-hand which makes it super easy to prepare. Also, you can substitute peanut butter or even sunflower butter in place of the almond butter. You’d just have to change the name!
What’s great about the Chocolate Almond (or Peanut or Sunflower) Frosty is that it’s another recipe featuring dairy. I recently wrote about the benefits of including 3 servings of dairy into our diets. This is a yummy addition to the many ways to enjoy dairy. If you can, chill the glasses in the freezer ahead of time for an authentic ‘frosty’ effect!
