Can I really have an iced frappucinno?

I love frapps from Starbucks.  They are liquid dessert!  And have the carbs to go along with it.  The coffee shop variety is loaded with sugar.  But need I go without?  Not at all.  Thanks to Big Train's Blended Ice Vanilla Latte Mix.

It tastes just like the coffee shop version. No wait, let me correct that, it tastes BETTER.  So rich and frosty - heaven in a glass.

I was hesitant to order it online because I am so used to packaged drink blends like this promising far more than they ever deliver.   They are usually gritty and have a really awful after taste.  Not this one. The coffee flavor is perfect, the sweetness level just right and the texture is sublime.

One serving makes a 16oz ice latte which for me was just to large. So I simply halved the ingredients and had a perfect 8oz icy delight on my hand (and in my mouth) in minutes!
