The ice cream version of the milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl. Recipe courtesy of Serendipity Yogurt Café, located in Surfside, Florida.


Main ingredients

  • 3 cups cornflakes (use gluten-free if needed)

  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar


Prepare the Ice Cream


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm the cream, sugar, and salt.


In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks. Slowly pour the warm cream into the yolks, whisking constantly as you pour. Transfer the mixture back to the pan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until custard thickens and coats the back of the spoon.


Strain the mixture into a bowl over an ice bath and let cool. Once cool, refrigerate for four hours.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine cornflakes and milk. Let steep for 20 minutes. Use a strainer to remove as much of the cornflakes as possible. If cornflakes remain, you can repeat the process using cheesecloth. Discard soggy cornflakes. Add brown sugar to the milk. Set aside.


Once custard is cold, mix in cereal milk. Freeze the ice cream mix in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.


Once you buy your ice cream maker, always keep your ice cream bowl frozen so you can make ice cream without delay.   Entertaining? Fill mini Mason jars with your homemade ice cream. To serve, place the jars (with the lids) in a beverage tub filled with ice.


We garnished our ice cream with cornflake brittle. Simply caramelize sugar and pour over cornflakes. Once caramel sets, break into chunks.
