How to Make Cereal Milk Tea Bags

For many of us, bottom-of-the-bowl milk is the best part about eating cereal. The milk soaks up all the sweetness from our Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, etc. and what we get at the end is fantastic, sugar-infused leftover milk. If no one’s looking, we skip the spoon all-together and dive in face first.

Looking to recreate this nostalgic taste of cereal milk, we spotted a recipe by instructables user Aaron Geman. Taking an emptied tea bag, the 31-year-old genius refilled it with crushed cereal to produce the perfect cup of cereal milk tea. Curious, we had to try it for ourselves and bought a Costco-sized package of mini-cereal boxes for our experiment.

    I hate the taste of tea. Is there ant taste of tea left after making the cereal milk using the emptied out tea bags. I still want to try for myself. Great idea.

    You can simply buy reuseable spice sachets from the baking section of the supermarket.
