This fruit loop milkshake combines your favorite cereal with ice cream to make a fruity smoothie you could pass off as breakfast food (if you argue it well enough).
While this fruit loop drink looks like the crumbs you find at the bottom of a bag of fruit loops, you can't deny how delicious it is. This fruit loops shake is creamy, thick, and packed with your favorite cereal.
Making milkshakes with breakfast cereal, like this fruit loops shake, my Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shake, and my Fruity Pebbles Milkshake can be a fun way to use up the last bit of cereal in the bag and enjoy a tasty drink in one.

💭 Recipe FAQs
I enjoy creating milkshakes and smoothies using frozen yogurt in place of ice cream because it offers a different texture. Regular yogurt is also an option and can result in a smoother consistency, which is especially appealing when making a fruit loops smoothie. However, please note that using regular yogurt won't provide the same level of coldness as frozen ice cream due to the absence of frozen ingredients in the recipe.
Yes, you can swap out the cereal in this recipe for any that you may have on hand (or any combination of cereals). This would be a great way to add more diversity to your milkshakes.
Fruit loop cereal is dairy free, and you can use dairy free vanilla ice cream and milk to make this recipe dairy free. Please note that fruit loop cereal contains ingredients that make it not suitable for vegans.
