Cereal and Milk Popsicles


Don’t forget to check out my Apple Pie Push Up Pops and enter the Shabby Apple Giveaway! Ends 6/17/12.

When people first hear about Momofuku recipes/methods, I think there are 3 stages of reaction.
1. Skepticism (or the Whaaaaat?! phase)
2. Consideration
3. Undying devotion.

There are so many "aha" moments in Momofuku that I believe if there are more than 5 tastes, as Harold McGee believes, Momofuku will find it.

Cereal milk panna cotta is a Momofuku (Christina Tossi) recipe. I've never eaten it, and at first I flat out rejected the possibility that it was good. I don't even like drinking the milk at the bottom of the cereal bowl. Something about it makes me cringe.

For a while I kept it there in the back of my mind. I made a crack pie, I read about some Momofuku sous vide, I tried the ginger scallion noodles, and then I decided it must be delicious. I actually started craving it.

Jake got me the book for my birthday. I looked at every page within the first 24 hours. Then I started thinking about cereal milk as a popsicle.


Amaya was ecstatic that I bought fruit loops. I never buy fruit loops. They were so special that she wanted to put them in a bag, tie a ribbon around them, and take them to her friends.

Living life at 70 degrees has its perks. Popsicles in December is definitely one of those. For a popsicle, I can ignore the fact that the edges of my sink counter top are growing an unscrubbable mold.

Probably many of you reading this are freezing and wondering why the heck I'm posting popsicles, as if I lived in Australia or something.

But you know what? If they can have Christmas in July, of COURSE you can have July at Christmas.

Cereal and Milk Popsicles or Fruit Loop Popsicles
The best thing about the Zoku is that the popsicle milk isn't overly crunchy. The texture gives a little. So if you make these in a conventional mold, you might want to wait a minute or two until the milk isn't rock hard. Also, the fruit loops are actually still crunchy. Make these without the actual fruit loops if you're using a different popsicle mold. I suspect you could make this with different cereals. I think next time I will try it by making the cereal milk with the fruit loops to see how the taste is different.



  • 3 Cups Cornflakes
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 Cup cream
  • 1/4 Cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 Cup fruit loops
  1. Turn the oven to 300 degrees. Spread the cornflakes onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. The cereal will be toasted and fragrant. Remove and let cool for a few minutes.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cornflakes, milk and cream. Stir slightly and let steep for 20 minutes.
  3. Strain out the cornflakes with a fine sieve. Discard the cornflakes (or eat them, but it's weird). In a glass measuring cup combine the liquid with sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, and salt. Heat for 1 minute and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  4. Get out the Zoku mold and put about 10 fruit loops at the bottom of each popsicle mold. Put the popsicle stick in, crushing the fruit loops slightly as you make sure it is firmly in the mold. Pour in some of the cereal milk, add some more fruit loops, and then fill up with more cereal milk. Stuff a couple more fruit loops at the top. The fruit loops will probably get a bit crushed in some spots, but that's ok.
  5. Repeat and let freeze for about 5-7 minutes. Remove the popsicles and eat immediately.
Did you know there was a Zoku Blog? Plenty of recipes to try out. StumbleUpon

Oh, I love this! How creative and looks like a great breakfast! Well...for me...

Damaris @Kitchen Corners said...

remember how we went to momofoku in ny and we barely had time to eat and the food was so good? can we do that again? i want that cookbook so bad.

Torviewtoronto said...

delicious creative popsicles

Mariko said...

Belinda: I think it's a great breakfast. :)
Da: Yep. Let's do it again. But let's go to the milk bar and stuff ourselves full of cookies. And let's go to the restaurant that is on the norecipes restaurant review.
Torview: thanks!

Wilde in the Kitchen said...

These sound crazy enough to be delicious! Love the colors too :)

Jenna said...

I'd love to have one of these for breakfast! You should market and sell them. :)

Mariko said...

Wilde: They ARE delicious!
Jenna: Only problem with that is that I would want to give everything away. I'd never make money at it. :)

Chow and Chatter said...

oh what fun your daughter has so much fun with you :-)

briarrose said...

Awesome good fun. ;)

Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} said...

I wonder if it's too late to add the Zoku quick popsicle maker to my Christmas list?! That thing looks so cool.

Cereal milk popsicles!? This is something I would have loved as a kid! (And probably still would...)

Jun Belen said...

Love the fruit loop colors!! I'd love to try it with coarsely crushed oreos!

Mariko said...

Chow: You should tell her that. :)
Maryea: Definitely add it. I love it.
Jun: You are a food genius. I am definitely trying that next. Oreos and milk popsicles!

Leigha said...

Um. Fun! But I must still be in the skeptic stage. I have to experiment.

Leigha

P.S. So glad to have met you, too!

Nippon Nin said...

It looks fun but we are not having popsicle here in 42 degree weather.
You're great photgrapher Mariko.
What is Momofuku again?

FootPrints said...

how do you know me so well? cereal AND cereal milk!?
if i didnt have a family that needed to eat, i'd eat cereal 3 times a day, 7 days a week.
cereal popsicle for dessert.

Ben said...

I like that panna cotta, but I thought the soft-serve at Milk Bar was little too salty. The popsicle is a great idea, as is the Zoku. I might have to get one of those for Esme!

Eliana said...

I have my own Zoku pop maker and would have never thought of using it to make breakfast! Genius idea :)

Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels said...

Those are so adorable! I would have never of thought of putting fruit loops in popsicles. You're so creative, I love this idea. Not to mention I'd probably want to eat a dozen of those popsicles. :)

Marysol said...

A cereal/milk popsicle.
Now I've seen it all, even if I haven't tried it all. But I intend to try this one. Or rather, my son will. Yeah, that's right.

Lawyer Loves Lunch said...

This is sheer genius! I can't wait until it's not freezing cold her to give these a go (and yup, I think California is cold) :) Happy holidays, Mariko!

mina said...

I love this post. You perfectly describe the Momofuku "reaction". We went to Ko when we were in NYC, bought the cookbook and can't stop thinking about how amazing all the unusual dishes are.

Three Loud Kids! said...

WOW. My mind has just been blown. BLOWN. I will be making these ASAP!

marla said...

Girl these are sooo fun! Gonna pin now. Hope you have been well :)

Johnny Random C said...

I have no kids and I swear I'm going to attempt to make this for myself lol

whirl + whisk said...

umm yes, please! I would love to throw some fruity pebbles in mine!

Anonymous said...

So could this recipe be modified? What if I took cereal milk (Like whats leftover in the cereal bowl and it gets all sweet and sugary!) and throw in a few fruit loops (I wanna try fruity pebbles!)and freeze it in a mold. Would that even work?

Anonymous said...

They would be great with cinnamon toast crunch too...yummy!

Anonymous said...

I tried making this and it tasted great, only problem was I had to eat the with a spoon out of the mould. The popsicles wouldn't come out no matter what I did.

Mike said...

cereal and popsicles sounds like a strange combo. Probably really yummy though.
