There’s nothing like combining your favorite breakfast goodies to get you out of bed in the morning. In this case, it’s a combination of iced coffee and cereal. Well technically just cereal milk, but you get the idea.
I’m one of those people who hates drinking hot coffee on a 100-degree Houston summer day, so I’ve been legitimately obsessed with making iced coffee lately. KitchenAid’s Cold Brew Coffee Maker is insanely easy and so perfect for always having yummy iced coffee on hand. Plus it’s substantially cheaper than a daily morning coffee run, so it pays for itself in no time!
To give your standard morning brew a twist, I’m sharing how to make this cereal milk iced coffee recipe that’s equally as perfect for serving at a summer brunch or during an afternoon entertaining by the pool…
This is simple, tasty, and FUN to share. What do you think? Would this be a hit at your next brunch or party?!
Cold Brew Cereal Milk Iced Coffee Recipe
- coarsely ground coffee
- milk of your choice I used coconut milk!
- cereal of your choice I used fruity pebbles, cinnamon toast crunch, and chocolate lucky charms
- 6 cups filtered water
- whipped cream optional
- sweetner optional
To steep the cold brew coffee -
- Fill the KitchenAid cold brew coffee maker with coarsely ground coffee to the fill line of the steeper.
- Pour in 4 cups of filtered water and let set for 1 minute, then add 2 more cups of water.
- Let the coffee steep either in the refridgerator or at room temperature for 12-24 hours. 12 hours if you prefer a lighter brew, and 24 hours for coffee with a bit more umph.
- Remove the steeper from the cold brew maker and pour coffee over ice in a glass until 2/3 full.
- Fill with your choice of cereal milk and a splash of sweetener and whipped cream (optional).
To make the cereal milk -
- Make a bowl of cereal just like usual! Let it set for 5 or so minutes until the cereal is nice and soggy.
- Use a strainer to remove the cereal from the milk.
- Add a splash of flavored cereal milk to your iced coffee.
