It is that time of year. Summer is coming and we are replacing hot beverages with cold ones. As a non-drinker I am always looking for refreshing drink ideas and my dear foodie friend Ava sent me this link for a copycat recipe of Tim Horton's Iced Cappuccino to try. She had switched the recipe up herself and I did so in my own way too:
I made 2 oz of decaf espresso which I let cool. Once no longer hot I put the espresso in the blender with 2 tbsp of icing sugar, 4 ice cubs, 1 tbsp of Nescafe Ice Java (cappuccino syrup), 1/2 cup of skim milk and blended. Ava used chocolate syrup which I bet would be awesome! You could always use cold coffee instead of espresso.
The icing sugar makes the drink all nice and foamy. I love that I am saving a ton of calories and money making this at home. This weekend we picked up some Iced Caps on the way home from downtown and they were good but I think I agree with Ava, this recipe is even better and now I can entirely avoid drinking caffeine. Thanks Ava!
