Protein Frosty Shake Recipe

This delicious shake is a dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free version of a Frosty — yes, the one we all enjoyed as kids — fortified with  protein powder. Xanthan gum, a whitish powder that is a by-product of bacterial fermentation, helps thicken the treat (in place of fat). In this recipe, it’s an essential ingredient for getting that unmistakable Frosty consistency.
