Everyone loves their Timmie’s Ice Capps, but not necessarily the carbs. And that’s if you even have a Tim Horton’s near you. Worse, you might be one of those who has been infuriated by the doughnut chain’s recent attack on Alberta’s energy industry. So, what do do?
Make your own, of course!
If you're Canadian you've probably enjoyed a Tim Horton's Ice Cappucino (a.k.a. "Ice Capp") drink and then felt guilty about all of the carbs and calories after the fact. It took some tinkering, but I've managed to reproduce the taste without the guilt. This recipe was published in Canada's National Post newspaper some years back.
Servings: 2 beverages
Prep time: 5 minutes
- 2 cups coffee frozen into ice cubes
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 tablespoon fat free instant chocolate pudding powder (I prefer Jello brand)
- 2 packets artificial sweetener Sugar Twin or Stevia - your choice
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Put all ingredients into a blender and spin the holy bejeebers out of them until you get a nice, smooth consistency. The Jello powder needs to be agitated for at least a minute at high speed for it to start to thicken and provide texture.
- Once you've got your smoothie, pour it into two glasses and serve.
Each 12 oz. serving is approximately 51 calories. The 10 oz. Tim Horton's product that you're replacing has 250, so enjoy.
