Mock Tim Horton’s Iced Capp | THM: S

Save for later!

Pre-THM, I would spend my Summers landscaping as a teen for 10-12 hours a day, fueling myself with my favorite drink in the world: Tim Horton’s Iced Cappuccino made with chocolate milk. Most of the properties we cared for were in town, and since you can find a Tim Horton’s at practically every intersection in the urban jungle, I’d sometimes have two of these a day! They were cool, refreshing, and gave me a jolt of caffeine.

Since physical exertion on the job was high, I didn’t gain any weight from my horrible habit, but if I did drank the same amount now, 5 children later, I know without a doubt, that I’d pay for it in pounds and sugar crashes. A medium-sized Tim Horton’s Iced Capp (minus the chocolate milk) contains a whopping 48 grams of carbs….47 grams of which are sugar…and a measly 3 grams of protein.

Lucky for me, my Timmie’s favorite was very easy to convert to a much healthier Trim Healthy Mama-friendly treat that’s low in carbs, sugar-free, full of healthy fats, high in protein, and tastes so much like the real thing, my hubby’s only complaint was that it was cold. 😀

Technically, one should use Tim Horton’s coffee for a more authentic duplication, but (pardon the unpatriotic preference), I like McDonald’s coffee more! Freeze an ice cube tray filled your favorite brewed coffee, and you’ll end up with an Iced Capp you truly love.

I used cashew milk in this recipe because it’s creamier than almond milk, but almond or coconut milk will work just as well. Also, I added a scoop of Integral Collagen (you could also Great Lakes) to my Iced Capp recipe to boost the protein level, but you can leave it out if you don’t have it on hand. You’ll still have a good amount of protein in your Iced Capp from the nut milk, heavy cream, and cocoa powder. A tiny bit of xanthum gum is added to increase the creaminess of this Iced Capp, but you can omit it entirely, if you’d like; your Iced Capp will just be a little thinner and more icy, but it will taste the same.

In honor of Canada’s 150th birthday this year, drink up, Canucks!

  1. I’m excited to try this. I haven’t had an ice capp in over two years, and it was once my favourite drink to get at Tim Hortons. Thanks for posting, from a fellow (former) ice capp loving Canuck. (P.s. I also love that your recipes use regular ingredients that can be found in grocery stores, much appreciated!).

  2. So excited to try this! Grew up in Ohio where we have Timmy Ho’s, but have moved around as an adult so I only get to enjoy them when I go back to visit family! Putting coffee in ice trays now! Hope for an afternoon treat! Thank you for sharing!

      • Thank you SO much for posting this! I too have 5 kids and these really add to the waistline! I have been diagnosed with T2 diabetes recently and would love an iced Capp but it’s a huge no go.

  3. I’ll admit it’s been hard to give up Timmy’s Iced Caps! Made this mock recipe this afternoon but used coconut cream instead of heavy cream as my hubby is dairy free. There aren’t too many THM recipes he likes but he really liked this one! Going to try it with the heavy cream tomorrow – just for me. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Picking up a Tim’s on my way home so I can freeze it….. can’t wait to try this version of Tim’s Iced Cap!!! Thank you!

  5. Delicious! We used almond milk and it turned out great. Also had to sub half and half for heavy cream. Next time maybe I’ll have it on hand and it’ll be even creamier! Husband loved it!

    • I have never been to Tim Horton, but this has been my favorite THM shake/smoothie/coffee drink since my 3 year old was born in 2017. I come back to it over and over. I need to print it out, just so I always have it.
      I’ve tried to make my own “enhancements” to it over the years and it’s never as good as the recipe as written. This recipe is delicious perfection!!! Thank you!

  6. For those Canadians who love (and miss!) Tim Horton’s Ice Capps (and for those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s a frozen Ice Cappuccino that is a delicious staple here on hot summer days. To think I couldn’t have them any more (48 grams of sugar!) brought so much sorrow to my soul!!!)


    oH YEAH oH YEAH!!!!!

    I just made one and oh my word! Deliciousness!!!!! (Doing a happy dance here!) I used coconut milk and added more milk than the recipe called for cause it was too thick to drink at first but the final product was amazing!!!!!


    So …. for my beloved Canadian peeps ….. you can enjoy your Ice Capp Again! For my beloved non-Canadian peeps ……here’s your chance to experience something so fantastic that you’ll wonder how you’ve ever done without it!

    KUDOS Northern Nester. Well done!!

  7. Wow, they taste exactly like Tim Horton’s! I’ve been having one everyday, they are do good. I add a tablespoon of MCT oil to boost the Keto effect. Thank you so much for this recipe!
