Iced Mocha Frappucino*****

A sweet, low-calorie summer drink with an optional kick!

8 frozen coffee cubes (use left over coffee and freeze overnight in ice cube trays)  
2 Tbsp chocolate syrup 
1/4 cup skim milk

2-3 Tbsp honey or brown sugar
1 shot Frangelico, or other coffee liqueur, optional

Blend until consistency of a thick milkshake. 

Optional: dollop with whipped-cream and sprinkle with chocolate powder, chocolate shavings, or cinnamon.

I made this today and used honey--the honey mixed with the ice-cube coffee made a hard honey-candy. Did that happen to you and should I have just blended it more? Next time I'll try it with brown sugar. It was still cool and refreshing.

Amy, I don't recall ever having that happen before. Try adding the honey after blending and crushing the ice cubes thoroughly first. Then just give the honey a few pulses to mix in.
