Frappucinos on the Cheap

I stumbled across these instructions on how to make a homemade Starbucks frappucino the other day, and finally got around to experimenting with the recipe today.

Here's what you need:
Coffee, milk, ice, gelatine (or xamtham gum - keeps the ingredients from separating), and sugar (I substituted chocolate syrup to make a mocha frappucino!). No, I don't have a coffee perk or french press in my Montreal apartment, and yes, I'm steeping coffee in two cups. Holla.

Add to blender, and blend. Here's what you end up with:
Yumm! I will definitely make this again.

The one thing I did wrong was use hot coffee - this reduced the ice particles to nothing. Make the coffee a day in advance and make sure it's cold. Still, the gelatine mostly prevented the drink from separating - if you let it sit long enough, you'll still get some separation.
