    Loadedpbj's Note:

    After realizing the amount of calories in one of those delightful drinks and how much of my paycheck I was handing over to Starbucks, I set out to create the perfect iced coffee drink. The secret is not what ingredients you use but how you use them.

      Yum! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. We always have leftover coffee after DH brews the morning pot, so I did freeze some the other day and finally got around to making this. I didn't measure, just added some milk and sugar, plus a couple small hazelnut creamers. It was delicious! And I'll definitely be freezing more coffee ice cubes! Thanks for posting! So quick, easy and definitely much less expensive!

      I love you for posting this!! As I'm a vegan, Starbucks won't make me frappuccinos because they say "it's a cream base, it won't work with soymilk"... Yeah, well, in your face, Starbucks! This tastes fab, is so quick and easy to make and modify (I added agave nectar and a dash of vanilla), and is low in calories to boot. My pals and I will be drinking a lot of these in the coming summer heat. Thanks so much!

      This is it!! I use a little less milk and it's the same as what you pay $6 for. BTW..."they" over roast their coffee which gives it a longer shelf-life, but a harder taste. Hate them. Secret to the best coffee...grind your own beans and use a coffee press. I pay $6 per pound at the grocery store. You'll kick yourself for paying so much at the coffee shops.
