I’ve done some Tweaking and although it’s not perfectly like a Tim Horton’s Ice Cap – It’s a Great Runner Up!

  • 1 Cup of Cold or room temp Coffee
  • 2 TBSP’s of heavy cream or Flavoured Cream
  • 2 tsp’s of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp’s of sugar or splenda
  • 1 Cup of Ice Cubes
This will make 1 drink.
Throw in Blender or Magic Bullet ( this is what I used)

I’ve done this recipe about 5 different times, using a variety of flavouring and sugar amounts.

My cousin suggested putting the milk into ice cubes to get it be more slushy like Tim Horton’s, but I have not tried it this way as of yet, but it is on my list to attempt.

I’ve given it a good run, and I enjoy it more “creamy tasting” rather than “sweet”, so I’ll just be sticking more with a Double Double style.  But what I do love about this recipe, is it’s very easy to tweak and add to.

This drink has become suddenly very popular in my house, and my 1/2 pot of  cold coffee, is no longer going down the drain.  My 16 year son prefers it to be more on the sweet side, so he will add vanilla and flavored creamier, and vanilla to his.

I also tried it when the neighbors came over with a shot of Bailey’s ( It was approved all around )

Yummy in the Tummy but probably not good for the waist line!

  1. I use some of my leftover coffee to make into ice cubes. Then you’re not watering down your coffee! I make just small cubes for easier blending. Been doing this for ages!

  2. I HAVE MADE THESE Alot, my way is easier and i think better,
    1/2 cup small ice cubes-i crush my ice in a bullet, blender, whatever you have
    add 1 teaspoon instant coffee
    2 tsp sugar
    and 1 cup milk
    blend a little more, pour into large cup, yummy

  3. I think a shot of Kahlua would be a good add for ppl who want a bit of kick to theirs.
