About The Recipe

I have a confession to make…Lucky Charms is one of mine and my mom’s absolute favorite cereals, but it’s not something we buy often.

So, with St. Patricks Day coming up soon, we thought it would be fun to make a few treats with the cereal!

The first one up is one of my absolute favorite things to make…a milkshake! I know it’s simple, but there is just something so freaking good about a homemade milkshake, you know?

I have always been a lover of classic vanilla. Though, this recipe has completely changed my mind!

You know how, after a bowl of cereal, the milk left in the bowl is lightly sweetened and tastes like the cereal? Well, this milkshake tastes just LIKE the milk after a bowl of Lucky Charms.

It is seriously SO. GOOD.

Though, my favorite part has to be how easy this is to make!

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have/don’t like Lucky Charms. Can I use a different cereal?
While this recipe is specifically for Lucky Charms, you CAN use a different cereal. Depending on how strong of a flavor the cereal you use has, you may need more or less cereal in the milkshake. Adjust as needed!

Can I make this recipe without a blender?
If you don’t have a blender, you can use a food processor to make this recipe. If you don’t have a food processor, you can try using a stand mixer or a hand mixer to beat the ingredients together. You may need to finely chop the cereal before you mix!

Milkshakes are best enjoyed as soon as they are made! I recommend waiting until you need to make it to mix it up. Luckily, it only takes about 5 minutes!

Absolutely! You can use a dairy-free ice cream, as well as your favorite plant-based milk.

Substitutions

  • Homemade or store-bought ice cream can be used for this recipe.
