If I ever wake up in the middle of a hot summer night in an uncomfortable sweat with an uncurbable craving, it’s for a Tim Horton’s Iced Capp. My fellow Canadians, you know what I’m talking about. These things are so good and so addicting, if you haven’t had one you’re basically missing out on one of the most amazing things to ever come out of Canada.
Ok, well maybe not the most amazing thing. A Google search proves there’s quite a few cool things to come out of Canada, like poutine, the Wonderbra, Nathan Fillion and even peanut butter. But at the top of my list? The Iced Capp. These things are like liquid gold mixed with creamy crack, I swear.
If you’ve never had one before, you may have had something similar from, say, Starbucks. It’s basically coffee, cream, sugar, and ice cubes blended together until delicious. Sounds simple enough, but Tim Horton’s nailed it with their ingredient ratio.
I found some copycat recipes on the internet but none of them really did it for me, so I played around a bit until I found a combination that tastes pretty darn similar to the original.
Healthy? Heck no. Insanely good and totally worth it? Oh yes.
