Chocolate-Raspberry Frappé

The Greeks presented the original frappé to the world, and everyone else got creative and concocted endless flavor variations that all seem so worth trying. This is one of those flavored frappé recipes. Feel free to use nonfat ingredients if you wish, because the skinny version is still quite good. (I've used Chambord raspberry liquor in place of the raspberry syrup, and it was good, too.)
