An icy, Vanilla Frosty... easily made into chocolate, coffee or any other flavor too!

My favorite; vanilla!

Another one of those 'recipes' I throw together often and without thinking about them as a 'recipe' nor to share!  This week we've had them three times - and no guilt is needed other than the fact that it's got sugar in it.  But no heavy cream means it's light on calories and fat grams. 

I normally don't measure when I make these; and I've been making them for about 12 years now (?) so I had to measure this last time to see how much I approximately use of each ingredient.  Feel free to play with this recipe to make it your own.   Some things I do to the basic ingredients are;   1)  use regular milk and increase the vanilla if you don't use Vanilla Almond Milk in your home.  2) Make a chocolate version by adding cocoa powder (about 2 tablespoons to start - adjust to your personal taste) or use chocolate syrup, chocolate flavored Torani syrups, etc.   3)  Add fresh berries!  Use the vanilla recipe below but add strawberries or cherries and you will feel like you are eating homemade low fat ice cream!  4)  Instead of almond milk, add 1/3 cup strong coffee!  Oh my goodness I love the Iced Coffee Frosty version!  

Add other flavored syrups as you wish. Play with your food!
