cereal milkshake

Milk is a staple in my house. Jordan drinks it daily. I like it in my coffee. We all eat cereal every morning.

It’s such an important part of our daily routine that I plan for it when we go on a trip, so that Jordan can have her Cheerios if I can’t get to the store right when we get home. I’ve even been known to stock my hotel room mini fridge with single serve milk bottles.

You could say we’re a milk family.

When the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program contacted me about creating a recipe with real milk, of course I jumped at the chance.

The California Milk Processor Board (CMPB) has started a four-week sale of limited edition milk glasses (from July 9th through August 5th), to benefit community-based organizations here in California. Three organizations, THINK Together, the Bay Area Community Resources, and the Central Valley Afterschool Foundation, are all benefitting from the sale of these glasses. The organizations support after school and summer programs for children and their parents to help them make wholesome food choices for a healthier lifestyle. The after school programs also work with children during out-of-school time on fostering positive relationships and helping with academic achievement.

The glasses are being sold as part of the GOT MILK?’s latest campaign, ‘Science of Imitation Milk’, which basically talks about real milk vs. imitation milk. For example, real milk has two ingredients: milk and vitamin D3. “Imitation milk” has a long list of ingredients, many unpronounceable. During the four-week sale, these super cute glasses can be purchased online for $15 and 100% of the purchase is going directly to the community organizations to support nutrition education for children all over California.

Aren’t the glasses super cute?

When trying to come up with a recipe, milkshakes naturally came to mind. I mean, what’s more milk than that?

Then, of course, my ADD kicked in and I could not make up my mind about what milkshake to make.

Until I was at the store and remembered a quirky childhood food habit I had.

{Why yes, I had quirky childhood food habits. Some things never change.}

I used to put cereal on my ice cream. Frosted Flakes, Cocoa Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It was my favorite cereal topping.

The Cinnamon Toast Crunch called out to me in the Walmart cereal aisle, as it usually does. This time I listened, and I’m so glad I did!

This is probably the easiest milkshake ever. Ice cream, milk, and cereal.

If you don’t like Cinnamon Toast Crunch (and I’m not sure we can still be friends if not), then you can use your favorite one. I am dying to try Cocoa Puffs.

So go get some cereal and milk, and get some glasses. Then make a milkshake to remind you of your childhood! Your kids will love it too, if you decide to share it with them.

  1. how did i miss this one? I made a milkshake, too, for Fbuzz last week and oh boy, I love Cinn Toast Crunch cereal!

  2. I can’t show this to my youngest one. He loves milkshakes and his favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch. He would make me to do it for him right now :)I will surprise him after day camp tomorrow.

  3. This looks so delicious! I would love to invite you to share this on Saturday Show and Tell: ( I know that my readers would appreciate this and some of your other posts. Thanks and have a great weekend.

  4. Aww man I love cinnamon toast crunch! We have this ice cream place out here that actually has fruity pebbles, captain crunch, cinnamon toast crunch, all kinds of cereals for toppings. I think it’s genius! Love the idea of a milkshake.

  5. Visiting from Tasty Tuesday.
    This is a fun idea! And a great way to use that last little bit of cereal that isn’t enough for a bowlful.

  6. Such cute cups! My hubby would love this idea – he is our milk drinker! Give me milk in cheese or yogurt form, but everyone else is crazy for it here too!

  7. Lovely post. I got to this via Mealtime Monday on Couponing and Cooking. I have linked in spicy mince lettuce cups. Enjoy.

  8. I LOVE Milk. I don’t drink coffee (don’t like it) but instead I drink Vanilla-milk/
    I definitely have to try this milkshake

  9. we love cereal on ice-cream and I happen to have cinnamon toast crunch in my pantry. I see milkshakes for lunch today
