  • 300 milliliters condensed milk
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
  • 8 cups 1% chocolate milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and the Cool Whip.
  • Add the chocolate milk and vanilla and continue whisking until combined.
  • Place the Frosty mixture into a freezer-safe container. Cover tightly with a lid or plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
  • Freeze for 3 hours, stirring once every hour, until the Frosty has reached the desired consistency.
  • Spoon into glasses and serve.


  • Make sure to thaw the Cool Whip in the fridge before making your Frosty so that it blends well with the other ingredients.
  • If you don’t have a freezer-safe container large enough to hold all of the Frosty mixture, divide it up into 2 or 3 smaller batches to put in the freezer. Make sure you don’t fill the container to the very top, the mixture will expand a bit as it freezes. If you freeze the Frosty mixture in smaller batches, the freeze time will be slightly shorter.
  • If you have an ice cream maker you can use that instead of putting the Frosty mixture into the freezer.
  • I’ve made this using glass and plastic freezer containers. The mixture in the plastic freezes slightly faster than the mixture in the glass container.
