If you like the popular fast-food frappe, you'll like this recipe. You make the mix, keep it in a resealable bag, and pop it into the blender whenever you want! It makes a bag that will make about 8 servings and is MUCH, MUCH cheaper than the fast-food one.

We love a coffee shop frappe but not its price. This mix makes it a cinch to whip up a frappe at home for a fraction of the cost. The dry mix is simple to throw together and ready to go anytime you get a frozen coffee fix. When blended together, it's cool, creamy and the perfect frozen coffee beverage. Whether you drizzle with chocolate or caramel, it's a yummy drink.

    If you want mocha, just drizzle with chocolate sauce. Ha, maybe the fat-free ingredients convince me the other ingredients aren't fattening!!
