Turn your favorite breakfast cereal into the perfect afternoon drink this summer. With this Cinnamon Toast Crunch shake you're going to cool off in style.
We are no strangers to making recipes using cinnamon toast crunch cereal- our Nacho Cupcakes are still pretty legendary around here, but this cold drink really hits the spot.
Made to be sweet and chilled but with a hint of warm spices, this is probably one of my favorite milkshake recipes to date- with the exception of the Coffee Milkshake from last year (coffee is what sustains me). Speaking of coffee, I dare you to try this Cinnamon Toast Crunch Latte.
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- It's great for small amounts of cereal. Ever have a little bit of cereal (stale or fresh) at the bottom of the bag that doesn't make enough for an actual bowl of cereal but you don't want to waste it? We use it up in everything from Lucky Charms Cookies to Rice Krispie Treat in a Mug and Fruity Pebbles Milkshake. We like the milkshakes.
- You can customize it. Add in a little caramel drizzle, top with more cinnamon toast cereal, or add more or less cereal depending on what you'd like. You can even garnish the top with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar.
- It's super fast and delicious. Making a milkshake is very fast and quick. Just pop everything in the blender and let it work its magic for a minute before adjusting the consistency to your own liking. I like my milkshakes thick.

For specific ingredients and measurements, please see the recipe card below.
Milk. If you want, you can use nondairy milk, low fat milk, or even half and half instead.
Ice cream. If you don't have vanilla ice cream you can use dairy free ice cream (like coconut based ice cream) or even vanilla frozen yogurt. I often use vanilla frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.
🥣 Topping Ideas
I took a plastic milkshake glass (from Target $3 for a pack of 3) and then dipped the rim in melted white chocolate and cereal pieces before freezing for 5 minutes as I prepared the milkshake.
After filling the cup with my cinnamon toast crunch milkshake I topped with off with whipped cream and added a strawberry to the rim.

🍴 Recipe Tips
You can adjust the consistency of this milkshake to your own liking by adding in more ice cream (if you want it thicker) or more milk (if you want it thinner).
Offbrand is okay!
Also, don't feel obligated to stick with the name brand versions of cereal. Offbrand cereal works just as great in this cinnamon toast milkshake.
You can double or triple this cinnamon toast crunch milkshake recipe as needed (assuming you can fit that much in your blender). This recipe only makes enough for one tall glass so if you're looking to make enough for a family, doubling or tripling will cut down on a lot of time by just blending it all together.
