And my obsession with creating new smoothies continues. I’ve been tastespotting Wendy’s Copycat Chocolate Frosty recipes for quite awhile now so it was about time for me to blend up my own version. I developed a healthier take on the classic confection. A smoothie perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dessert.

Sounds great! Any suggestions for what to use if you don’t like stevia? (Nor agave.)
Honey, coconut palm sugar or even turbunado sugar.
