Homemade Organic Frappuccino

The archetypal frozen coffee drink of our generation is the Starbucks Frappuccino. It's cold, it's chocolately, it's caffeinated, and it's so crazy good. But it's also upwards of five smackers for a large glass, not to mention 400 calories. And also, not very organic. Satisfy all of the above by being your own barista. This organic Frappuccino recipe gets all the right without much of the wrong.

2/3 cup brewed strong coffee
