You can make iced coffee drinks WITHOUT kahlua? I'm flabbergasted!

3 cups milk
8 tbsp choc syrup (you can use 6 it was a bit chocolatey)
3 tbsp sugar
2-1/3 cup strong coffee
I mixed it all in a jug & put it in the fridge until today.
Just now I used my snow shaver to get a glass of ice then I poured the mixture over top added whipped cream & a drizzle of syrup & my friends say "wow its just like Starbucks"

Has anyone tried HappyCat's recipe with vanilla syrup instead of chocolate? I looovvveee chocolate, but sometimes I like the french vanilla flavor too.

I use decaf when I make it (just in case I want to drink one later at night).
The reason for the evaporated milk (according to the site I found the recipe on) was that it contains carageenan, which prevents the drink from seperating. When I first tried making these I used to end up with a coffee and milk mixture on the bottom, and crushed ice floating on the top - still tasted good, but required lots of stirring!
If you try it let me know how it works. I have a friend who can't have dairy anymore, and she's really missing these drinks. (Starbucks won't/can't mix her one with soymilk.)

That is wierd. So much for 'the customer is always right'.
I think I might try one this weekend -- got lots to do, lemon bars, donuts............but the frappucino sounds like one to add on for sure!

Starbucks uses a premixed base for their fraps.
Ask for a decaf iced capp/mocha whatever, with soy and see if they can blend it in a clean blender.
They used to have a dairy free tea frap called the tazoberry that I loved.

You can make a dairy free version of this by using a non-dairy creamer such as Mocha Mix or the Silk Creamers.

So, I gave the recipe to DH to make while I was doing some stuff. I had him make it half caff/half de-caff, with soymilk. He made it, put some of the mix in the blender -- then the ice. Of course, then after blending realizes he doesn't have enough ice. So, we are having iced coffee right now. Tastes really good, and so far I don't see separation going on. Told him next time to put all the ice we had in the blender first, then add the mix (starting with less, adding more if needed to get the right thickness).
All in all though, tastes pretty darn good.
Thumbs up from me!
