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!
