We’re finally here! Day twenty! And our last recipe is another inspired by recipe, if you didn’t know already, we LOVE Gilmore Girls, and a couple months ago we decided to make some ice cream flavors inspired by our favorite show, so while the official title of this ice cream is Milk and Cereal Ice Cream, we like to call this ice cream, the Logan Huntzberger Special.
On one of their dates, Logan and Rory break into the Yale cafeteria for ice cream and Rory notices the cereal section completely full. Now in the episode, Rory is excited about Cocoa Puff, but there was just something about Fruity Pebbles that screamed Gilmore Girls, so here we are. Our last day of twenty days of 4/20 and mixing it with one of our favorite shows. Hopefully you will not only enjoy this recipe but the 19 other we’ve already posted!
Milk and Cereal Ice Cream
- 1 ½ Half and Half
- 1 Cup Bakers Sugar
- 1 Cup of Fruity Pebbles cereal
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Egg yolks
- 1 Cup Heavy Cream
Step 1: Steep Fruity Pebbles in half & half for 15 minutes Strain cereal out and make sure your half & half is still 1 ½ cups. Some might have absorbed into the cereal.
Step 2: In a large sauce pan combine the half & half and sugar over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Step 3: Next, beat the eggs until light and fluffy. About three minutes.
Step 4: Slowly pour about half of the half & half mixture into the eggs, whisking constantly to avoid scrambling. Pour back into the saucepan and whisk together over a medium-low heat.
Step 5: Add the heavy cream, and stir until combined. When the mixture has thickened (and coats the back of a spoon) remove from heat and transfer to a heat proof jar.
Step 6: Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and then place in the fridge for at least 12 hours.
Step 7: When cool, make according to your ice cream manufactures instructions. Transfer to a freezer safe container and allow to freeze for an additional 2 to 3 hours. Scoop some out and sprinkle with Fruity Pebbles!
