I love Tim Horton’s Iced Cap’s but I don’t live near a Timmy’s and I wanted to make them at home for much cheaper. I found a couple of recipes on the internet and have been trying them out. I find this method is the best but play around with the strength of your coffee to tailor to your own taste. I used about a half a blender of ice again and a bit more sugar. If you don’t want to use instant coffee, I just brewed regular coffee about twice as strong as I would normally make and used that. The great thing about this recipe is, you can make it as rich or as skinny as you like. For instance you can use sugar substitute and skim milk for something very low in calories and fat free!
2 tablespoons instant coffee
2 oz. (4 tbsp) boiling water
2 heaping tablespoons sugar (or sugar substitute Equal)
4-6 ice cubes
1/3 cup 15% cream. (or chocolate milk…or regular milk)
Mix first 3 ingredients together to make a syrup, put into blender. Add ice cubes and blend until slushy. Add cream and blend until frothy.
(Can be made with regular coffee or decaf)
