OC Weekly Twitter follower @RikiYamada (follow us on Twitter at @OCWeekly and @OCWeeklyFood) was kind enough to share with us his recipe for the Key Lime Pie Frappuccino.
Find out the recipe and our verdict after the jump!

- Lemonade filled up to the first line
- Milk to the second line
- 3 pumps of Frappuccino cream base
- 3 pumps of white mocha
- 2 scoops of protein
My barista--who also complimented me on my hair, you awesome, awesome man, you--crinkled his nose at the drink, then added a sprinkling of toasted coconut and chocolate syrup to top it off, saying he thought it'd make it taste better.
Our verdict? Our resident caffeine addict/Associate Editor Patty Marsters reports that the drink tastes more like a coconut-cream pie than key lime--with only a slight acidic aftertaste. And, actually, a coconut-cream pie is a tastier option anyway.
