Frappuccino in a Mason Jar

So I've been debating buying a Magic Bullet for...years now (I'm a procrastinator).  My sister has one and I like that you can mix a single serving of something...in a small container...without having to wash the whole big glass pitcher.  And then I saw this on Real Simple:

You can do what?!?

And when you combine that tip with this recipe...



You have an afternoon of chilled bliss.

You are brave to try this out. After 'killing' my previous grinder, I don't think I have the guts to try this. But that picture with cold Frappacino is so tempting!!
