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 (17 oz.) cereal milk because the rainbow colors are fun and I love the slight fruity flavor! Luckily, select large sized Kellogg cereals are at a price of $2.99 both in-store at Target and online at Target.com. 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!
