Mocha Frappe!!

If you know me - you know we (both Darryl and I) love McDonald's Mocha Frappes.  We've searched for a recipe that was close and this one is as close as I've come so far - it' is supposed to be the Starbucks version but I've never had a Starbucks Frappe so I don't know how close it is!

In a blender:
2 cups of Ice
1 cup of skim milk
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons Hershey's Syrup
3/4 cup of double brewed coffee, chilled (put twice the amount of coffee into the filter as required and brew)

Blend until all the ice is broken down and enjoy
This makes two large glasses!! 

Tips:  You can cut this in half to make one large glass instead - it works very well.
Also - change this up as much as you want.  I'm not a huge coffee fan so I don't double brew the coffee otherwise it is really strong (which Darryl LOVES  -- LOL).  Even when I cut it in half, I still use the same amount of chocolate.
You can also leave out the chocolate or use caramel instead
** Make sure the coffee is chilled/cold otherwise you'll just end up with a cold drink as the coffee will melt the ice!
