Have you seen my Cereal Milk Milkshakes? Well, I figured I needed to make some Cereal Milk Ice Cream to go with it! Yes, that’s ice cream that is flavored using cereal milk – the best milk leftover at the end of a bowl of cereal that has all the best flavors of the cereal infused into it. You’re probably wondering how much cereal it takes to flavor cereal milk ice cream … and it’s a lot! I used 8 cups of cereal to infuse 3 cups of milk (which the cereal absorbs most of) with cereal flavor in order to get 1 1/2 cups of cereal-flavored milk. But it’s worth it! You can definitely taste the cereal in the ice cream! You can make cereal milk ice cream using your cereal of choice, but I decided to make Froot Loops cereal milk because the rainbow colors are fun and I love the slight fruity flavor! This is seriously one of the best ice cream flavors I’ve made yet! I’m surprised there was any ice cream left to photograph because I kept “taste-testing” it. Here’s the recipe. You’ll need a few ingredients: And a large bowl to soak the 8 cups of Froot Loops in 3 cups of milk.
- 3 cups milk
- 8 cups Froot Loops
- 2 cups heavy cream
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ¾ cup granulated sugar, divided
- ¼ tsp salt
- 5 egg yolks
- Soak the 8 cups of Froot Loops in 3 cups of milk for 1 hour in a bowl in the fridge. After an hour, remove and strain the cereal-flavored milk into a bowl. You should get about 1½ cup of cereal-flavored milk.
- Next, combine the cereal-flavored milk, heavy whipping cream, half the sugar, salt, and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking intermittently.
- While heating, combine the egg yolks and the other half of sugar in a bowl and whisk to combine.
- When the milk mixture has come to a boil, pour ⅓ of it into the egg mixture and stir. Then pour another ⅓ and stir, and then the final ⅓ and stir.
- Next, pour the entire mixture back into the saucepan and heat, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, but do NOT let it come to a boil.
- Then transfer the mixture to a clean bowl, allow it to come to room temperature, and then refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
- After the mixture is chilled, follow the manufacturer's instructions on your ice cream maker to make the ice cream.
- Transfer ice cream to a freezer safe container for storing.
- When serving, top with extra Froot Loops!
I use an ice cream maker to churn my ice cream because it makes such delicious, creamy ice cream! If you don’t have one, you can pick one up for about $40-50. After the ice cream maker churns the ice cream, I like to let it harden overnight in the freezer. And the next day, I filled my ice cream bowl with a couple scoops of Cereal Milk Ice Cream and topped it with more Froot Loops! I picked up my 17 oz boxes of Froot Loops at Target in the cereal aisle for $2.99 a box. Froot Loops are perfect for breakfast or even dessert!
