At Home Tim Hortons Ice Capp Hack



I don't remember exactly when I had my first Ice Capp, but they always bring me back to summer trips to the beaches in Canada. I swear that the Ice Capps in Canada taste a million times better than the ones you can get stateside, and it's very likely to be true. Not that I have anything against the Ice Capps I can get locally, they're more often than not fine, but they just don't compare!

So I've done a bit of research over the past few months on how to try and replicate an Ice Capp at home. There were many misses, and many ingredients involved. Ice creams, espresso, regular coffee, chocolate syrup....but nothing seemed to really hit the mark. Then, I heard about an elusive product from Nescafe, called Ice Java. Of course, it was only available in Canada, so on my most recent trek over the border, we acquired a few bottles and I set at making an Ice Capp dupe yet again...





Holy moly, this is the winning recipe as far as I'm concerned! It's got the right slush factor, it's creamy, and it tastes like coffee, without being too strong.



I used a Nutri Bullet to make mine, but I'm sure you could use a blender just as easily. The recipe is super simple, calling for only four ingredients including the ice, and it's likely that you have much of the recipe on hand.

While you might think that a drink like this is only for warmer months, they can be just as delicious on a winter day!



At-home Tim Hortons Ice Capp Dupe 

You will need: 

Ice 
Nescafe Ice Java 
Milk (I used 2%)
Nestle Original Creamer 
Nutri-Bullet or some sort of blender


To make: 
 
Fill up the large cup of a Nutri-Bullet with about 2 cups of ice, or half way. 
Add 1/4 of creamer to cup
Add in about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of milk 
Add about 2 tablespoons of Ice Java  
Blend until combined and enjoy! 



It's just that easy! It's also far more affordable than getting Ice Capps all the time. If you make this recipe, I'd love to know if you think it is a good enough dupe! :)
