This works really well if you have a Vita-Mix. That is what Starbucks uses in their stores.
I worked at Starbucks and made the Frappuccinos, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about this recipe. Personally, I don't think people could get the same effect at home as you would get in the store even if you stole the ingredients out of the store, just because half of the appeal (at least in my opinion) of a frappuccino is the texture. Starbucks uses really, really, awesome fancy blenders. Just something to think about for someone who might want to try this!
