Homemade Ice Cap Recipe

I’ve done some Tweaking on Tim Hortons homemade ice cap recipe, and although it’s not perfect like a Tim Horton‘s Ice Cap – It’s a Great Runner Up! And

The consistency of the ice at Tim Hortons won’t be the same! There’s no way to master that without a proper machine, but I think if you were to get shaved ice, put them in the blender with about 1/2 cup of milk at a time, you could do maybe come up with the ice.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would taste like to drink one of those white plastic domes that cover the food at Tim Hortons, then look no further. It’s called an Ice Cap Latte, and… well, it tastes exactly how you’d expect.

About Tim Hortons Coffee

Tim Hortons is Canada’s largest quick-service restaurant chain, with more than 3,000 restaurants nationwide. The company is well known for specialty coffees, including lattes, cappuccinos and espresso shots, and the Canadian “Double Double” or Triple Triple.”

What is a Double-Double?

Double Cream, Double Sugar. That’s what. Think of it as the Canadian equivalent of a Starbucks Blonde Roast with two creams and two sugars (or Splenda for your health freaks). It’s coffee with enough sugar to kill an elephant.

Tim Hortons celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and is recognized as one of Canada’s most successful and respected brands. The company recently opened the doors to a new head office in Oakville, Ontario – with state-of-the-art facilities and letters from Tim Horton displayed proudly around the building – reflecting their commitment.

I was trying to figure.

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

Tim Horton's Homemade Ice Cap Recipe

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 straightforward to tweak and add.

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 sweeter, so he will add vanilla and flavoured cream.

I also tried it when the neighbours came over with a shot of Bailey’s

Yummy in the Tummy, but probably not good for the waistline!

Here’s a great way to use up your cold coffee on a hot summer day!
