Coffee Mocha Smoothie

I tried this today... its pretty good... It's not any starbucks copy cat, its just a yummy goodness all its own.
I'm not a slave to the local starbucks, I just like sweet and yummy coffee drinks, so I didn't try to copy anyone else's drinks.. I just made my own. 
As I try it again in the future I'll post updates to let you know how I've improved or varied it.

Here's the official recipe:

3/4 c coffee
3/4 c milk
1/4 c sugar
2 Tbs. vanilla syrup
3-4 Tbs Hershey Chocolate Syrup
12 cubes of ice (about 1 and 1/2 cups)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until ice is crushed smooth.
This recipe filled my glass twice.

White Mocha: melt white chocolate chips (1/2 c) in the microwave and mix them in (let them cool a little) in stead of Chocolate Syrup
Caramel: use 3-4 Tbs of Caramel Sauce instead of Chocolate Syrup
Vanilla: omit Chocolate Syrup and increase vanilla syrup by 1-2 Tbs.

If it sits for awhile it will separate. I read online somewhere that Starbucks uses a little bit of xantham gum to prevent the separation. I didn't worry about it because I drank it fast enough it didn't have time to separate.

Let me know if you try it and if you have any suggestions for improvement...
