This fruity pebbles milkshake tastes just like a bowl of the fruity breakfast cereal in a thick, frosty shake.

Made with vanilla ice cream, strawberry syrup and Fruity Pebbles cereal it is sweet, creamy and delicious.

While we love Fruity Pebbles, you can easily swap them out for other fruity cereal if needed. Froot Loop and Trix cereal are both great substitutions and will produce a delicious milkshake.

This shake is super easy to whip up and is made with just a few ingredients. Kids love the colourful cereal and strawberry syrup swirls.

Ingredients

This milkshake comes together with just a few, simple ingredients. You will need:

  • Ice Cream – I use vanilla ice cream as I find it allows the flavour of the cereal to come through better, but you can use strawberry, strawberry ripple, raspberry ripple or any combination of flavours depending on what you have on hand.
  • Milk – Any type of milk will do. I use 2% as I always have it on hand, but you can use fat-free, whole milk or even cream.
  • Fruity Pebbles Cereal – You will need about 1 cup of Fruity Pebbles cereal, but you can use as much as you like depending on your flavour preference. If you can’t find Fruity Pebbles, both Froot Loops cereal or Trix cereal will give you similar flavours.
  • Strawberry syrup – A bit of strawberry syrup helps give the milkshake a bit more fruity flavour boost and is a perfect complement to the sweet, fruity cereal.
  • Whipped cream – Whipped cream is optional, but I always love to add it to my milkshakes so I can decorate the top with more chocolate and caramel drizzle.
  • Maraschino cherries – These are optional, but it is always fun to top milkshakes with a cherry.

For a full list of ingredients and measurements see the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Ingredients for fruity pebbles milkshakes.

Instructions

Add the ice cream, milk, strawberry syrup and Fruity Pebbles cereal to a blender.

Start the blender on low and gradually increase the speed until the milkshake is fully blended. If it is too thick you can add a bit more milk until it is your desired consistency.

Taste the milkshake and add more strawberry syrup or fruit cereal if you would like a stronger flavour.

Variations & Substitutions

There are a few ways you can customize this shake or substitute ingredients depending on your preference or what you have on hand.

  • Ice cream – You can change the flavour of the milkshake by using different ice cream. While I find this Fruity milkshake is best with vanilla, you can use strawberry, strawberry swirl, or any combination of the three. For a tangier flavour and fewer calories, you can use frozen yogurt.
  • Strawberry syrup – You can use store-bought strawberry sundae syrup or homemade strawberry syrup or sauce. If you don’t have any strawberry syrup, you could add a bit of strawberry jam or pureed strawberries.
  • Fruity Pebbles cereal – If you don’t have any Fruity Pebbles cereal, or can’t find any at your grocery store, you could use Froot Loops cereal, Trix cereal, or any other fruity cereal.
  • Whipped cream – I love whipped cream on top of my milkshakes, but this is optional. Alternatively, you could add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top or use frozen whipped topping.
  • Milk – You can use any milk you like, 2% milk, non-fat, whole milk or cream. If you don’t have, or can’t have dairy milk, your favourite non-dairy milk will work well.

FAQS

How do you make a thick milkshake?

To make your milkshake extra-thick make sure you are using ice cream that is very cold and firm and start with only 1/4 cup of milk. Start the blender on low and gradually increase the speed allowing it to blend the milkshake. Add just a tablespoon or two of milk at a time until the milkshake is blended.

Is there a substitute for Fruity Pebbles?

If you can’t find Fruity Pebbles you can use Froot Loop, Trix, or any store brand fruit cereal.

Notes

The thickness of the milkshake will change depending on the firmness of the ice cream.  Softer ice cream will result in a thinner shake.
How much milk you need to add will also depend on the power of your blender.  High-speed blenders will require less liquid than some lower-powered appliances.

This was the perfect way to use some leftover cereal I had in my pantry! I'm so glad I found your recipe as this was the perfect treat on a hot summer day. My family loved the colorful Fruity Pebbles on top of the milkshake. It was such a treat!
