Like most 90s kids, my childhood was full of mornings with cereal for breakfast. (For some reason parents back then didn’t bat an eye at a bowl full of double digit grams of sugar and carbs. Simpler times….)
Many cereals hold a special place in my heart, but we all know there is one that reigns supreme: Lucky flippin’ Charms.
It really is magically delicious.
I wanted more ways to incorporate Lucky Charms into my breakfast, so I decided to infuse it into my coffee via cereal milk.
What is cereal milk, you ask?
Well, you know the delicious milk you have leftover at the end of a bowl of cereal? That’s cereal milk.
Recreating this cereal milk and using it in recipes was started by (or at least made famous by) Christina Tosi of Milk Bar. If you haven’t been to Milk Bar, I highly suggest you go. On my first visit, I spent over $100 and bought an entire cake for just myself.😊 Can’t wait to go back this summer and eat some cereal milk ice cream!
I loved this Lucky Charms Latte so much that I’m already thinking about what cereal to infuse next! I think I see a Coco Puffs Latte in my future…
