Welcome to another Milk Bar Monday! Today I am the host.
I chose the sweet corn cereal milk ice cream pie for a multitude of reasons.
- It is HOT out there and we all need a little something sweet to help us cool off, so why not have some ice cream.
- I am an Indiana girl and our major claim to fame is corn. We have some fabulous corn that grows there during the summer. So when I saw this recipe it just screamed “Indiana Summer” and I couldn’t pass it up.
- It uses cereal milk!
- Finally – you can top it with one of your favorite seasonal fruits! What pie is complete without a little fruit topping?
This recipe isn’t is as hard as it seems. Some of our past Milk Bar Mondays have had crazy steps and ingredients, but this one is pretty tame in comparison. The only thing I had to find was freeze-dried corn. I got mine on Amazon but I think you can also find it at Whole Foods and other health food stores.
You start by making the corn cookies, which are surprisingly corny and sweet but not as strange as they seem. They will be a new favorite in this Indiana household.
Then you start your “ice cream” base by making some of the famous cereal milk. I think this is our first recipe that uses it, but it was worth the wait. It’s a sweetened milk full of delicious cereal flavor. For this recipe we made Cap’n Crunch cereal milk but the recipe is pretty much the same for which ever cereal you decided to use.
While your cereal milk is soaking you take the delicious corn cookies and make the pie crust! Yes, we are getting to be all sorts of corny for this recipe.
Once your cereal milk is ready to go you make a corn pudding sort of mixture, let it cool, then fold it with some whipped heavy cream and sour cream. Pour it all into your pie crust and let it freeze for a few hours.
I topped my finished pie with some pureed peaches for an extra kick of summer flavor. But they great thing is summer has so many wonderful fruits to offer that you can’t go wrong with anything you chose. A few that I want to try are strawberries, blueberries, and cherries.
See? Not too crazy for a Milk Bar Monday.
And 2 super bonuses when your pie is done – there are extra cookies & extra cereal milk! I recommend using the cereal milk in your coffee..mmm…
So what are you waiting for, check out the recipe below and celebrate the fourth with a super summery ice cream pie!
