I used 2 tablespoons homemade caramel sauce instead of the artificial sweetener. I also increased the coffee to 1 1/2 cups and the milk to 1 cup to make 2 venti frappuccinos. It was just like a caramel light frappuccino from Starbucks; sooo good!

i used regular brewed coffee and it still turned out good-just a much milder frap than the ones at starbucks. also i added a little unsweetened cocoa to make it a mocha.

Served it at a gathering yesterday evening, and I can't remember how many times I made a new batch. It went over extremely well, and most of the ladies at the meeting asked for the receipe. Excellent, and very easy to prepare.
