Bright and festive Cereal Milk Popsicles, made with your favorite childhood cereal!
Cereal Milk: The brightly colored, flavor-infused, dairy beverage remaining, after a bowl of cereal has been consumed. Often thought of as “the best part” of breakfast, this milk is to be slowly sipped in nostalgic reverence at the end of the meal.
We all have a favorite boxed cereal from childhood. Actually, I have two… Life Cereal and Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries. Or maybe Luck Charms. Honestly, it’s a toss up.
But I digress… Everyone knows the cereal milk in the bottom of the bowl, in which our favorite cereal was swimming, is the ultimate prize. Especially if it’s still cold by the time you get to it.
I bet you can remember the exact color and flavor of that milk, even if you haven’t had kiddie cereal in years. Am I right?
Introducing today’s recipe, Cereal Milk Popsicles… I’ve been dreaming about these ice pops for years. Why did it take me so long to make them?
Well to rectify this mistake, I’ve made them in several flavors, and you can too!
How To Make Cereal Milk Popsicles
If you want to make irresistible popsicles at home, you only need three ingredients: whole milk, sugar, and cereal.
Warm the milk and stir in the sugar, so the sugar dissolves into the milk.
Pour your favorite breakfast cereal into the sweetened milk and let it soak for several minutes.
Then puree the mixture a little to break up the cereal. This creates a better overall texture in the finished product.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze!
You can make this Cereal Milk Popsicles recipe with any variety of cereal you like, and even mix them if you want to create new flavors.

Cereal Milk Popsicles
- 3 cups whole milk
- 2 cups cereal, any variety
- 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- Pour the milk in a sauce pot and set over medium heat. Add the sugar and stir. Once the milk dissolves, remove from heat.
- Add the cereal to the milk and stir. Allow the cereal to soak in the milk for 10-15 minutes to infuse its flavor.
Pulse the milk once or twice with an immersion blender to break up some of the cereal. (You can also do this in a standard blender.)
- Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until solid. To release the popsicles from the molds, run the bottoms of the molds under warm water for 30 seconds, then pull the popsicles straight out.
