So this recipe was totally a fluke. But one of the happiest flukes I’ve ever created and definitely a new family favorite.

It all started with some whipped topping, pudding mix, some milk, and a bit of ice. I was hoping to blend it and create a delicious, no-ice cream milkshake.

Delicious and no-ice cream it was…. but a milkshake? Yeah, not so much. It was a bit too watery to be considered a milkshake. However, one sip of that mixture and it took some serious self control to not drink it all up right then and there. Milkshake or not, it was gooooood!

After I re-gained my self control and stopped slurping down the mixture, I had the idea to put it in my handy dandy ice cream maker. So in the ice cream maker the mixture was poured. And started to churn.

I soon was distracted, as I often am with such an active little babe. It was his first year birthday yesterday and plenty of party preparation was in the makes. I can’t even wait to show you guys how cute he was with smashed cake all over his face. It was too much fun to watch him with that cake.

He started out so timid and unsure and minutes later, he was smashing cake all over himself and his high chair. Serious sugar coma after all that too. He was out for bed in a snap!

Aaaa-nyways. So after the milkshake was done churning, it wasn’t so milkshake-y still. Instead it was a perfect soft-serve ice cream consistency.

I totally had one word come to mind after the first bite. But I needed to confirm with the husband to make sure I was going crazy or anything.

Sure enough – he thought the one word I did – “Frosty.”

Oh yes. I created, by accident, the happiest, most delicious frosty! Chocolate style. I was SO excited with the chocolate flavor that I immediately tried a vanilla flavor. Everyone knows a twist is the best way to have a frosty!

Oh gosh. You’ve gotta try this!

  1. That is a seriously genius idea. I have got to try that next time! I knew ice cream makers were worth the investment, but this confirms it 🙂 Swirl style all the way!
