My version of a frapaccino;

Double shot of espresso
8 ounces of ice
1/4 cup heavy cream or half-&-half
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 packets of Equal artificial sweetener

Combine espresso and ice in blender and blend until fairly smooth. Add cream, vanilla, and sweetener and blend until smooth. Pour into 8 ounce glass and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Do you cool the espresso to room temp before blending? We have a coffee chain here (Tim Horton's) the sells frapaccinos. I'll be trying your recipe. Thanks for posting it.
