Frappuccino At Home

I LOVE treating myself to a Starbucks Coffe.  In the colder months, I get either a caramel latte or a white chocolate mocha.  Only in the last couple summers have I started to enjoy the Frappuccinos.  I wasn't sure I would like a cold coffee, but I certainly do.  Unfortunately, I live a half hour away from a Starbucks and don't go into town everyday.  I've been wanting a simple way to make my own Frappuccino treat at home.  In our latest DASH magazine they featured homemade recipes for iced coffees and this one fit me perfectly.


FRAPPUCCINO 
(Adapted from DASH Magazine for my own tastes)

1 Cup Strong Brewed Coffee, chilled (I just save some from our morning batch and put it in the fridge)
3/4 Cup Milk (I use 1%)
1 T  jarred fudge sauce or caramel sauce depending on the flavor you want.
2 T Sugar
6 Ice Cubes (Can use more if have room)
Canned Whipped Cream (spray on top of coffee)
Chocolate Sprinkles (sprinkle on top of the whipped cream)

I use my Magic Bullet and pour everything in and blend.  It fits into the bullet perfectly and then fits into my Starbucks cup so I can pretend I'm at Starbucks....even if the kids are fighting with each other in the background!

I have never tried any type of cold coffee. I think I am going to try your recipe for the Frappuccino. Sounds tasty!
