Recently our family stopped at a Chick-Fil-A and we were given a free Frosted Lemonade because they had accidentally made an extra one. Funny thing was we couldn’t eat it because of –you guessed it– the dairy. So, when I came across a copycat recipe on Pinterest, I decided to make one that’s dairy and sugar-free.

I have no idea how close it is to the original, but I think it’s yummy, creamy and refreshing! I love using metal straws with my drinks – it makes the drinks feel extra special!

If you aren’t used to using glucomannan, it is a healthy starch that is very low carb and adds a thickening, light creamy texture to the shake. I haven’t seen it in stores yet, but you can find it at Amazon. You can make the shake without it, but you’ll lose a little of the creamy effect and since we’re doing this dairy free we need all the creaminess we can get. I have read where xanthan gum could be used as a substitute, but I haven’t tried that personally.

The collagen is optional, using it will give you some good protein and it has so many health benefits. I use Custom Collagen I’m really happy with it and it has a good price!

Trim Healthy Mamas this drink is an FP.

    I’ve had that frosted lemonade at Chick-Fil-A and it is delicious–but Herb makes a healthier version at home for me;)

    • MamaShire (Author)

      That’s so sweet of Herb!

  3. Brenda

    Sipping it now!! So very delicious! I just heard about Chick-Fil-A frosted lemonades and was really hankering to try one but being a THM’er knew it wasn’t going to happen….. THANK YOU!!!!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      You are so welcome! So glad that you like it!

  4. Shireen

    This looks yummy! Would this be a FP?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Shireen, yes, it is an FP.

  5. Teresa

    How much almond milk?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi, Teresa. The recipe calls for 2/3 cup of almond milk.

  6. Kayla

    How impotant is the gluco? Its something I haven’t purchased yet

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Kayla. The gluccie will help give a creamier texture and thicken it a bit. You can make it without, the texture just will be a different.

  7. Cwise

    So if I added a bit of thm protein powder instead of collegian would it still be a FP? I can’t have collegian due to autoimmune disease where i make too much on my own.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yes, it would still be an FP!

  8. Charlotte Queen

    Can you use xantham instead of gluccie?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Charlotte, I haven’t tried xanthan gum yet, but I have heard of others using it. If you try it let me know how it works.

  9. Andrea

    Sounds yummy! Will have to try it! I had a horrible allergic reaction to the collagen- had hives for 2 weeks! So obviously I’ll omit it, would you sub 2 TBS protein powder? Or just leave it out?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Oh, that’s so sad! Allergic reactions can really be awful. You could sub in the protein powder if you like. It may change the taste slightly, but would probably still be good. It would be okay to leave it out as well, you just wouldn’t be getting the protein to make it a good, hearty snack.

  10. This was delicious! Are used Whey powder for the collagen, instead of the gluconnoman I used flax meal, and used the full fat coconut milk and some water instead of the almond milk. I also added some raw cauliflower, which you can’t even taste! Really yummy, thank you

  11. Bethany

    Just made this with almond milk and it curdled in the blender from the lemon. Is that normal? Or okay to drink? Are there tips around this?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Bethany, I’m sorry that you’ve had trouble with the recipe. Be sure to add all the ingredients and mix according to the directions. I haven’t had the milk curdle before so I’m not sure exactly why it’s happening.

  12. this looks so yummy! I will be smuggling this to the movies; I usually get a frozen lemonade. (they actually do let you bring in diet food) May add some strawberry extract to make strawberry lemonade.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      That sounds like fun!

  13. Teresa

    My husband is allergic to nuts. Could I use coconut milk or some other milk substitute?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yes, you could use coconut milk. It would put it in the S category for Trim Healthy Mama. I’ve never tried it, but you could try hemp or rice milk.
