This Honey Nut Cheerios cereal milkshake recipe tastes just like a bowl of cereal and milk! It’ll take you right back to your childhood.
A few years ago, I traveled to Orlando to witness a live honey event with Cheerios. The team at Cheerios unveiled a one-of-a-kind living Honey Nut Cheerios billboard – it was a three-story free-standing structure that was home to more than 100,000 honeybees. The actual honey from the working hives was used to spell out “Made with Real Honey”. It was awesome.
Not only did I get to speak to the beekeeper in-depth, but I also got to be a part of the live taping of the live honey display. And so did anyone in the area that wanted to witness and be apart of it. One of the incredibly cute bees took a moment to check me out, to see if I was holding on to the honey.
Sorry, cutie patootie, all of your honey is in the display.
A few honey facts for you:
- Bees have to visit 2.6 million flowers to make a pound of honey.
- A beehive can produce up to 200 pounds of honey per year.
- A honeybee could fly around the world on just two tablespoons of honey.
Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal Milkshake
I set out to create a milkshake that tastes like a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios with milk and I think I got it. I really don’t know where I get these ideas but I’m glad when I do! As with all of my milkshake ideas, this Honey Nut Cheerios milkshake is also very easy to make.
Before I started mixing everything up in my blender, I took a little bit of the honey from the Florida hives and spooned it on to the rim of my glass. While I was blending my milkshake, it dribbled down the glass just in time for me to be finished.
I poured my milkshake, topped it with some whipped cream and more cereal and then drizzled some more honey on top. It brought me right back to being at the Florida honey farm.
