Did you know that one Starbucks Frapp has more calories that a super-sized Quarter Pounder extra value meal from Mickey D's??? Just some food for thought.

I didn't know that! Since we only go to McD's a couple times a year, and Starbucks only a few more than that, I think we are doing okay. :) But I'll remember that each time I drink one now, I'll have to split it with the kids!

Same here, Otter. I gave up coffee on a daily basis a long time ago. Once in a while though, this would make a nice treat to prepare at home, using low fat etc. ingredients (if you choose) & w/o a paying big "bucks."

Re the music - When I initially posted the thread in May, had no prob accessing the music page. Page may have changed since then. Try refreshing or clicking around the site. At the time there were some great tunes from Ray Charles, Aretha, Duke Ellington, Elton etc. & a light show on my puter screen.

Hey Mish, I'll try the music again. I love all those artists! I'm a very big fan of music, not too much I don't care for, not too crazy about a lot of the rap-crap though. Some is okay. It's very cute to see my kids trying to dance to that "music".

I used to have a fairly large collection of great music, it dwindled through the years and I'm not sure where it went, I'm working on building it back up again - and more variety than Kids Bop and Nursery Rhymes.

My kids have decided they love Starbucks Frappucino's, and they feel very sophisticated drinking them, so we'll make a couple more trips this summer!

I'm guessing an orange flavored syrup--like Torani.

Inexperienced blend-man here, and I've had some trouble mixing up the copycat Java Chip Frapp (The real frapps really put a dent in my wallet!). The only difference in the recipe for me was using cubed instead of crushed ice, for only cubed was available. The result was that the frapp doubled in volume when I blended it and developed a foamy head. It also had a tendency to separate - thick, icy blend to the top (below the foam) and chips to the bottom. What might I have done wrong, and how can I get it to blend into an even, thick, but not sno-cone-like, beverage?

By the way, apart from my failings, the recipe is great! The few sips that had the right texture tasted amazing!
