Useful tips for Frappuccinos!

Other variations:

Mocha frappuccinos: add a tablespoon of cocoa powder!

Toasted coconut frappuccinos: add some toasted coconut! (If it’s unsweetened, you’ll want to add a bit more sweetness to cut some of the coconut’s bitterness)

Container size questions:

We made the single-size, 12-oz recipe in a low-profile 64 ounce container. (No need to double up!)
