OK, you guys. Have you tried the cereal milk from Momofuku Milk Bar’s cookbook? I’ve had this cookbook for several years and I’ve made it loads of times, and each time I take a sip my inner child giggles with excitement. Because, you know, who doesn’t like the delicious, cereal-flavored milk at the bottom of the bowl?
I’ve never been to New York City, but when I eventually make it there I have a hefty list of places I need to visit. The New York Public Library is right there on the top of the list. It’s a no-brainer for me. It has absolutely beautiful architecture…and I’m obsessed with books. I might just run from the cab right to the library. But after I get done looking at books much of the rest of this hypothetical trip is going to be spent doing a foodie-crawl of various bakeries in the city that I’ve come to love through their cookbooks…Amy’s Bread…I’m talking to YOU!
Also, I’ve decided the term foodie-crawl should be a thing. It’s like a pub crawl, but instead of hitting up a string of bars, you go from cute little restaurant to cute little restaurant ordering awesome little bakery items, coffees, or appetizers. Does that sound awesome to anyone else? Just imagine a bachelorette party foodie-crawl. Yum!
Anyway, another place I’d looooove to check out is Momofuku Milk Bar. I’d like a slice of crack pie right there in person, thank you very much. 😉 With a tall glass of cereal milk on the side.
Do you love Fruity Pebbles? If so, you are going to LOVE this cereal milk. My love for all of the Pebbles cereals is pretty obvious. Cocoa Pebbles were included in my first post EVER. Now, some might ask what you do with this cereal milk. Well, you can just drink it…because it’s awesome that way, but the possibilities are endless. I may or may not have made THE BEST milkshake with this cereal milk. It was a kind of strawberry cheesecakey-Fruity Pebbles cereal milkshake. I should have paid more attention to my measurements when adding things, but I was on a sugar high! I’ve also added it to my oatmeal…BLISS.
It may look humble, but the baking possibilities are endless. Just think of making homemade pudding with Fruity Pebble milk!! Excuse me while I dream. 🙂 Oh, and I’ve also used almond milk in this recipe before and it turns out just as good.
