Update: I changed the name to “Ice Creamed Lemonade” on 12.6.16, but the recipe is the same as always.
Confession: I have never actually had a Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade.
Maybe that’s not such a bad confession to make, especially since I operate a healthy food blog.
Confessions aside, this is what I imagine a Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade would taste like. If I would ever try one. Which I just might, one of these days.
Sweet, tart, creamy, and refreshing…all at the same time…this frosted lemonade is a great summertime treat. It’s super simple to whip up in the blender!
Don’t turn your nose up at the cottage cheese; you can’t taste it, I promise. It serves to make this shake creamy while not overloading your body with calories. It adds protein, too!
As is, this shake is a Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mamas (you can learn more about the plan here). This means that this shake is both low carb and low fat. It can be used for a meal, snack, dessert – whatever you like! If you wish, you could use some whipping cream in place of some of the unsweetened almond milk. This would take the shake out of the low fat category and turn it into a THM:S.
Hey, I bet this shake would be even better if you made it with some leftover homemade ice cream (the stuff that is now frozen like a rock in your freezer), like my basic vanilla recipe. That would make this an S (no longer low fat).
Even if it’s not like the Chick-fil-A version (I wouldn’t know), this is a great refreshingly creamy summery shake!
Question of the day: have you ever had a real frosted lemonade from Chick-fil-A? What’s it like?
You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Feel free to add more ice for a thicker shake. Adjust sweetener to taste, if needed (I like mine fairly tart).

- THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder and THM Pristine Whey Protein Powder can both be purchased from the Trim Healthy Mama online store.
