Saturday Morning Cereal Milk Ice Cream 

My parents were pretty horrible parents. As in, one step away from calling child services. The reason? Until my siblings and I were in high school, no sugar products were allowed in the kitchen.

 

Cruelty.

 

I used to practically invite myself to my friends’ houses for dinner so I could sample their Kool-Aid-esque type of beverages and dump cake dessert. I wanted more.

 

Aside from a container of Slimfast milkshake powder (which I absolutely snuck because it was sweet), our home was barren. The irony was that my mother was a pastry chef. I still consider suing my parents for the emotional anguish they put me through. Everyone’s doing it these days anyway, amiright? YOLO

 

By the time I had three failed runaway attempts under my belt and high school on the brink, the rents finally relaxed and let us have Kix cereal. Oh but don’t you fret my pets. I still managed to sneak in summers filled with proper American childhood experiences when visiting my aunt. When the sibs and I live with her, we had a plethora of processed sugars and developed plenty of false concepts of fruit flavors.

 

There was nothing better than watching Saturday morning cartoons whilst stuffing our faces with rainbow-colored cereal bits. Don’t forget to drink the milk, which was usually a maroon color of sorts. I called it fairy soup, duh. How else would one enjoy Fraggle Rock, Gummy Bears, TMNT, Pee Wee’s Playhouse (whoever wrote that was tripping on something very heavy), He-Man, Garfield, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Rugrats, Captain Planet…and Jem?

 

So I took the cereal, and of course the cereal-infused milk, and made it into my very own Saturday morning cereal milk ice cream. Stickin’ it to healthy parents everywhere.

I also used the KitchenAid ice cream bowl attachment. You simply lock it onto your stand mixer and mix. SO easy and a cinch since my stand mixer is already sitting on my counter and ready to go!

Instructions

To begin making your Saturday morning cereal milk ice cream, place KitchenAid® mixer attachment into freezer at least 15 hours prior to use. Pour whole milk, 3 ½ cups of cereal into saucepan. Slice Rodelle vanilla bean in half and scoop out beans with tip of knife into saucepan. Add vanilla pod in as well.

Heat at medium low until cereal has broken down and infused into milk. The cereal will have soaked up much of the milk, and the rest will appear almost custard-like. Do not allow your milk to boil, only simmer.

 

Pour into a strainer and push liquid out of cereal with a spatula. Slowly scoop some of the warm milk into a bowl of 6 egg yolks that have been whisked. Immediately whisk warm milk in, adding more milk a little at a time until half of the milk is incorporated into eggs.

 

Be careful not to “cook” the eggs with hot milk!

 

Pour egg and milk mixture back in with the rest of the milk and heat on stove at medium low heat. Mix constantly with a spatula, until liquid becomes a thick custard and sticks to the spatula.

 

Fill a very large bowl with ice and some water. Place another bowl inside and fill with cream. Place strainer on top and strain the custard into the cold cream.  Use a spatula to mix together. Pour into ice cream maker attached to your stand mixer.

 

You can actually use an ice cream bowl attachment for your KitchenAid® stand mixer. It requires less storage space and costs less than other  ice cream makers. Easy peasy!

Mix your Saturday morning cereal milk ice cream on stir until it thickens. Add more cereal in right before it is ready. Store in freezer to harden.

 

Note: If milk is not warm by the time you finish straining it, place back on stove and heat to warm before whisking into egg yolks.

It’s not too sweet either! I was nervous about passing out from a sugar coma, but the result exhibited a nice “adult” balance.

    MY PARENTS WERE THE SAME WAY. No sugar cereal unless we were camping for some reason. This ice cream looks delicious though!

    Totally stolen from Christina Toshi Milkbar Pastry Chef

    • Jasmin says:

      @jill, totally not “stolen” as the recipes are totally different in ingredients, flavor, and style. Trust me, if you read my blog, you would know i ALWAYS credit when I see the idea elsewhere first.
