I had a Starbucks Frappuccino and LOVED it the minute i had it, but it cost me about $2.50? This does not taste like the actual Frappuccino but is a way to reuse the bottle and make your own "Fakeuccino".
Step 1: Label (optional)
de-cap the lid of the bottle and look closely at the bottle. de-label (back side) the bottle and take a closer look at this label (ingredients or Contains:)
The pictures will explain!
Step 2: Research
Who knows what Pectin or Ascorbic acid is??
I went to Google.com and typed them in, what i found was quite interesting...
Pectin: gelling agent (thickener).
Ascorbic acid: Vitamin C
Step 3: Wash Em
Wash the bottles and lids. The bottles will air dry fine, but the lids need special attention... after washing them, take a look at their undersides. in all the groves of latex can hide little coffee bits, make sure you get them.
Step 4: Don't Cry, Its O.K.
No need to cry but you can put away your old Starbucks Coffee cup.
Step 5: How Much Does One Bottle Hold?
A bottle holds 2 cups, the picture says 1 1/2 but that is WRONG! you will see i added extra in the brewing step...
Step 6: Coffee Choice
You can choose many flavors, decaf, caffeinated, etc. For this, just buy the flavorless coffee.
Step 7: I'm Making My Recipe of Coffee (last Step)
4 TBSP hot cocoa mix.
4 TBSP half and half
2 CUPS coffee
Step 8: Close
Put the cap back on. Make sure not to burn yourself!
Step 9: Chilling!
Pick up the bottle, you may need to use something to hold it because it is HOT!
put it in the fridge and grab it in the morning.
Step 10: Recipe!
REMEMBER THAT THE RECIPES SAY 1CUP COFFEE AND THE BOTTLE HOLDS 2CUPS!!!!My recipe is:
• 1 cup coffee.
• 2 heaping tbsp hot cocoa powder.
• 2 tbsp half and half or milk.
• 1 cup hot brewed coffee.
• 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder.
• 1 tablespoon white sugar.
• 2 tablespoons milk.
• 1 cup coffee.
• ½ teaspoons vanilla extract.
• 2 tbsp milk or half and half.
• Sugar to flavor.
Make and take
• Make your everyday coffee how you like it and put it in the fridge and chill it. That way you know you will like it when you wake up squinting looking in the fridge for you coffee!

Step 12: So, How Much $ Do I Actually Save a Month?
an average month is 30 days. This is how much you save by using the recipe I PROVIDED.
1 pack of 12 fraps - $25.00
$25 \ 12 fraps = $2.08
$2.08 * 30 Month=
TOTAL = 62.40
1 pack of 108 K-Cups = $54.99
$54.99 \ 108 cups = $.50 per cup
$.50 * 30 = $15 month
gallon of milk = $3.50 roughly
Swis Miss hot cocoa = $19.87 - 80 ounce
4 tbsp = 2 ounces (close enough)
TOTAL = 38.37
(this is with the whole hot cocoa container since i don't know how many tbsp is in 80 ounces!)
Although it does not taste the exact same, you save....
$24.03 every month, this could seem like a little , But...
1 Month = 24.03
2 = 48.06
3 = 72.09
4 = 96.12
5 = 120.15
6 = 144.18
7 = 168.21
8 = 192.24
9 = 216.27
10 = 240.30
11 = 264.33
year = 288.36
Its not much but you still are saving little by little!
