A few months ago I was walking around in Manhattan and I stumbled across Momofuku Milk Bar, one of David Chang's restaurants.
Unlike most of his places, you don't need a super exclusive reservation to go to milk bar, you just walk in and place your order. I looked around at the options, and despite the amazing looking candy bar pies and pork belly sliders, the thing that really caught my eye was cereal milk ice cream.
I just kept staring at the name. Cereal milk... Does that mean the milk leftover when you are done eating cereal? I ordered it and quickly found out that the answer is yes. It tasted exactly like the milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl! I did some research and found out that they soak the milk in the cereal, and then strain it out to achieve that flavor. It was amazing and I kept thinking about it for weeks after I ate it.
David, you had a great idea, genius even, but you made one huge mistake. You didn't make the cereal milk with Boo Berry! Everyone knows Boo Berry is the best cereal out there! This guy
knows it for sure. Halloween is on the horizon and Boo Berry is going to be slightly more available in stores in the near future, so be sure to grab a box and make this delicious treat.
Go check out the recipe for the Boo Berry "Cereal Milk" Ice Cream to get all the measurements, but use the images on this post as a guide.
Boo Berry is the best! Way better than the other monsters, Count Chocula and Frankenberry.
Pour the cereal into a large bowl.
You need to split the marshmallows from the cereal.
The cereal soaking in some heavy cream. It's like a huge bowl of the best cereal ever!
After it soaks awhile, it gets really goopy. I think that is a technical food term right? Do they teach "goopy" at the CIA?
Here I am pouring the creme anglaise (technical term for sugary eggy milk) into the cream and Boo Berry mixture. There are two non-pictured steps after this: 1. Strain the mixture and add the marshmallows. 2. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.
You can see flecks of colored marshmallows. Yum!
Some of the cereal is crumbled up and sprinkled on top of the ice cream.
Smooth, creamy ice cream with the taste of cereal milk, small marshmallow bits, and crunchy cereal sprinkled on top! This recipe came out great; I hope you all make it!
