I realize there is a conglomeration of products in here.  But I made this recipe right after Paleo f(x) and had a CRAP TON of my favorite things from my favorite companies, so there you go.  The products used are things I pay for anyway, have written reviews for in the past, and are incredible companies I truly believe in.

Okay, recipe story time:

The latest product review opportunity I've had was with Desert Farms.  They produce raw camel milk.  Read that last sentence again.  Yes, you're seeing correctly.  One more time.  Good?  Has it sunk in?  Cool.  Stop staring at me like that.

The owner is a sweetheart and you can read my review of the product and company here.  Anyway, I wanted to create a recipe with the milk they had given me, but I was on a time crunch because, uhm, milk.  This recipe is the spawn of that time crunch and I couldn't be more #blessed by luck with it.

I came home from the gym one day (because what else do I do with my free time?) and wanted a good post-workout recovery snack.  So, I followed my impulsive craving for ice cream from the Texas heat and came up with this beauty.  I never thought a recipe would come out of it, but as soon as I tasted it, the word "Frosty" came into my head, followed by memories of stopping at Wendy's with my cousins while visiting them in the Ithaca summers.  The fact that I wasn't planning it to be an actually-good recipe at all gave me that much more hope for the world.  And oh darn, now I needed to recreate this delicious thing for pictures... which I think she posed for beautifully.  

While I've used this Frosty mock-up after a workout, it's also a great alternative to actual Frosty's whenever you want one.  And it'll keep you cool in this terribly hot summer, nonetheless!

Protein Frosty

Prep time: 4 hours (some ingredients must be frozen)  Cook time: NONE!  

Total time: 4 hours-ish

Yield: 1-2 servings



  1. Peel & cut up the bananas and freeze in Ziploc bags.  Pour camel milk into an ice cube tray to freeze as well.
  2. Once bananas & camel milk are frozen, add them to a Nutribullet or other high-powered blender with the rest of the ingredients, besides the toppings. 
  3. Pulse in blender until smooth - if the Nutribullet isn't large enough for all of the ingredients, do it it halves and mix thoroughly (and quickly!) in a bowl afterwards.  
  4. Pour your Frosty(s) into the serving glass(es) and crumble a Megaroon on top.  Sprinkle on coconut flakes and any other garnish you'd like, and enjoy!
