$tarbuck's Frappaccino.... What's The Best Copy?

I fiddled around with a recipe last year to try and duplicate this delicious drink, but while coming close, I could not duplicate it. I am looking for anyone's recipe for creating this awesome drink, so post yours in these ngs and e-mail them to me! Here is my stab at it: For a 18 oz drink: (All measurements in liquid ounces) 5 oz. fresh brewed Italian Dark Roast Espresso. About 5 oz. total crushed ice 6 oz. homo milk (need it creamy!) 2-4 oz. vanilla ice cream Hershey's chocolate syrup to taste (not much) Sugar to taste First, crush the ice in a blender with the milk (high speed), then add the Espresso, ice cream, choco syrup and sugar, and blend at lowest setting on blender for about a minute. Pour and drink, This tastes great, but it ain't no Frappaccino.... I don't know what it is, but there's something in that $tarbucks drink that makes me drool (maybe some secret addictive chemical). Oh well, hope you like my recipe, and I look forward to seeing yours!

I would put this up to the pepsi challenge anyday... 3-4 grams of fat 280 calories 180 calories (for the Sugar free) And every frapp' drinker that has ever tried one has made the switch. -Yeah, this is a plug, but our drink has won city-wide acclaim as the best frozen drink in 'L.A. Magazine'. It pays to buy good coffee and tea....
