A SmartPoints guide to ordering at Tim Hortons®
Ordering at Tims is a Canadian mainstay. Here we’ve rounded up some of the most familiar menu items and their SmartPoints values so you can keep within your budget, or splurge!
Getting the most out of your Tim Hortons order
Adding a piece of fruit to your order at Timmies will keep you feeling fuller, longer.
Keep a stash of fruit in your car, purse or desk drawer for easy access to high-fibre favourites such as bananas, apples, pears, and oranges.
If you love sweetened coffee but are looking for an option with a smaller SmartPoints value than granulated sugar, try adding a zero SmartPoints sweetener such as Stevia, light agave or Splenda (which is used by Tim Hortons.)
Remember, you can also ask for half a sugar!
|Coffee with 1 milk (small, medium, and large)||1 SmartPoints|
|Coffee with 1 milk and 1 sugar (small)||2 SmartPoints|
|Coffee with 1 milk and 1 sugar (medium)||3 SmartPoints|
|Coffee with 1 milk and 1 sugar (large)||4 SmartPoints|
|“Double-double” coffee with 2 creams and 2 sugars (small)||7 SmartPoints|
|“Double-double” coffee with 2 creams and 2 sugars (medium)||11 SmartPoints|
|“Double-double” coffee with 2 creams and 2 sugars (large)||14 SmartPoints|
For many Canadians, there’s nothing better than a hot Tim Hortons coffee on a cold winter morning, especially if you happen to be sitting on the bleachers at an ice rink. The SmartPoints values of certain coffee orders, namely the now-infamous double-double, are surprisingly high. Ranging from 7 SmartPoints for a small double-double, which includes 16 grams of sugar and 8 grams of fat, to 14 points for a large coffee containing 30 grams of sugar and 14 grams of fat.
If you love Tim Hortons coffee with cream and sugar but understandably don’t want to make the switch to black, try swapping the cream for 2 per cent milk and add a single sugar instead of two (or Splenda, if you prefer a sweeter drink.)
Because cream has such a distinct mouthfeel, you may find the transition to milk easier if you begin with a combination of one milk and one cream.
Grilled Breakfast Wraps
|Grilled Breakfast Wraps Farmer's breakfast wrap||
|Grilled Breakfast Wraps Bacon breakfast wrap||
|Grilled Breakfast Wraps Sausage breakfast wrap||
|Grilled Breakfast Wraps Egg breakfast wrap||
The Tim Hortons Farmer’s Breakfast Wrap is stuffed with an egg omelette, sausage, hash browns, cheddar cheese, and spicy mayo.
While this loaded wrap might be tempting, it comes in at 20 SmartPoints (and almost 40 grams of fat.) If you are looking for an option with less SmartPoints, try ordering the egg and cheese or egg and bacon breakfast wraps.
|Bacon and Cheese Omelette Bites||
|Egg White and Spinach Omelette Bites||
|Jalapeno and Cheddar Omelette Bites||
Tim Hortons Omelette Bites are low SmartPoints and high protein option (a substantial 7 to 8 grams per serving.) Because they’re a good source of protein, Omelette Bites make an especially good meal or snack when eaten with a side of fruit, with a salad or on a protein plate.
English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches
|Egg and cheese on English muffin||
|Bacon, egg and cheese on English muffin||
|Sausage egg and cheese on English muffin||
Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches
|Sausage and egg on biscuit||
|Bacon, egg and cheese on biscuit||
|Egg and cheese on biscuit||
Tim Hortons Breakfast Sandwiches on English muffins run on the lower side of SmartPoints and least amount of saturated fat, the egg and cheese breakfast sandwich on an English muffin is the clear winner nutrition-wise.
If you eat this sandwich at work regularly, try keeping a jar of salsa or a bottle of your favourite hot sauce in the fridge for a tasty zero SmartPoints addition to your meal.
|Sour cream glazed||
|Toasted coconut donut||
|Plain old-fashioned Timbit®||
|Sour cream glazed Timbit®||
It wouldn’t be a trek to Tim Hortons without at least a Timbit or two. As it turns out, Timbits are among the lowest SmartPoints when it comes to enjoying donuts from Timmies.
All Timbits have a SmartPoints value between 2 and 4. Glazed and birthday cake-flavoured donuts and Timbits tend to occupy the highest SmartPoints values across the board.
Sandwiches, wraps and paninis
|Crispy chicken, bacon and ranch||
Sandwiches, wraps and paninis at Tim Hortons all contain relatively similar SmartPoints values, with the average number being 14 points.
Adding a simple green or fruit salad to your sandwich will add fibre and extra nutrients to your meal.
