  1. Yummy! I added a little bit of chocolate syrup for a little more sweetness but it was good before I added that, too. Try it
  2. Quick pick-me-up drink, and a lot closer and cheaper than going to ****bucks! Instead of the sugar, I added some sugar-free raspberry syrup. (I love raspberry-chocolate-coffee combo!) Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
  3. I used skim milk and Splenda for a diabetis friendly drink and was quite happy with the result. It was frothy and rich enough for my tastes. I used a bit less coffee and thus chocolate was the predominant flavor (works for me, lol). Made for PAC, Spring '08.
  4. Not bad - very good flavor. The coffee comes right through :-) For those who refuse to do the metric system, it is about 1 3/4 milk. Nonfat works just fine. The reason I gave it 4, not 5 stars is that while the flavor is great the texture is pretty thin. This was due to the low amount of ice used. You might want to double the ice (5 cubes usually works well for 1 cup of milk) if you want a copycat of you-know-who's Frappes!
  5. I convereted this recipe to US measurements. Used Splenda and 1% lowfat milk. It was a really nice treat to cheer up my 9 yr. old daughter who thinks she's really big stuff when she gets to have a Frappe'! I topped off with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup. I can see that there are many variations to this recipe to really "froo froo" it up! Such as adding whipping cream, ice cream, etc. Thank you!
