Burt Baskin and Irv Robbin's idea to franchise their ice cream stores for rapid growth was so inspired that the company's former milk shake machine salesman, Ray Kroc, adopted the technique to successfully expand his new chain of McDonald's hamburger outlets.

Ice cream is this chain's staple. So this coffee drink, unlike the Frappuccino made famous by Starbucks, requires adding ice cream for a creamy texture and rich taste. If you've got a blender you can clone either of the two varieties of this refreshing coffee beverage. For chocoholics bent on everything mocha, just add some chocolate syrup to the mix.

I measured everything correctly, but couldn't get it thick enough. It was too soupy. I kept having to add ice cream to it. It has a pretty good taste though.

This was pretty good, but I didn't think it was close to the original recipe. I wanted to make a low sugar option so I have been playing around with it and I find that if you use no sugar added vanilla bean ice cream, omit the sugar in the recipe, add in a couple spoon fulls of sugar free coolwhip it taste incredibly close to the original version that is full of sugar! hope this helps anyone looking for a healthier version of this recipe!
