    I have used this recipe for a long time. It's great. Sometimes I omit the chocolate, add vanilla and berries.

    It tastes just like a Wendy's Frosty. I buy the powdered whole milk (in a can in the Mexican section at Walmart). It tastes just like whole milk in the carton when mixed with cold water. Gives a rich taste to these if you aren't looking for non fat. If you don't have corn oil, use a light oil with no taste. Olive oil won't do in these. The spray of the non stick has to be used to make it creamy.

    Even better with no corn allergies, add one ripe banana.
    It will thicken the shake nicely. Corn is a frequent allergen.

    And you can add chocolate chips, and I often add some cherries. Our family loves this. It's an old, old Weight Watcher's recipe.
    It was so good that my then early teen son asked for it often, but asked me to not tell his buddies it was a WW recipe!!

    Just plain old milk, ice cubes, banana, flavorings or fruit. Maybe a touch of sugar or Stevia. We like the crunchiness of chocolate chips in this.

    I tried it without the oil and spray and it isn't creamy like ice cream at all, more like flavored water.

    We were with grands for the Memorial day holiday & we made ice cream in a coffee can. It was too fun. and delicious too. Only made 2 cups but it only took 15 minutes of rolling it around on the driveway to get it frozen. Found the recipe & instructions through Favecrafts.
