CEREAL MILK chocolate coconut cream pie

Mar 17, 2017

Cereal milk.
My all-time favorite ingredient.
Most recently, I have found myself incorporating it into everything.
Personal fav: dumping it into my morning iced coffee.
This week each year I find myself craving Lucky Charms.
On Tuesday, Pi Day had me craving pie as well, so I created a Lucky Charms pie.
Not just any Lucky Charms pie, but a cereal milk chocolate coconut cream pie.
Check your pulse. and your blood sugar.
Recipe (if it even counts as a recipe):
Bake your pie crust (or mini crusts) and let them cool completely.
Make your cereal milk chocolate pudding (recipes below) and incorporate 2 parts pudding to 1 part whipped cream.
Fill the crusts with the magical goop.
Sprinkle with left over Lucky Charms (if you have any left over, why would you have any left over?) and dollop with whipped cream.

Cereal milk chocolate pudding:
2 2/3 cups cereal milk
1/4 cup cocoa 
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
(Sweeten with sugar according to how sweet or unsweet your cereal milk ended up being)

Bring 2 cups of cereal milk to a boil in a saucepan, then remove from heat. Sift cornstarch into a bowl. Whisk in the salt. Drizzle in the remaining 2/3 cups of cereal milk while whisking to incorporate. Whisk in the egg. Drizzle about 1/2 cup of the boiled cereal milk while whisking quickly to incorporate and prevent lumps from forming. Transfer the mixture back into the saucepan of boiled cereal milk and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Press the pudding through a sieve then stir in the vanilla extract. Divide between 6 dishes. Serve warm, or chill in the refrigerator till completely set, about 2 hours.

ORRRRRR 

Buy a chocolate pudding mix and add cereal milk as the liquid (according to the package directions).
I'm never too good for the quick & easy (and cheap) Sandra Dee semi-homeade way, but sometimes usually homemade is best.

 Also, I prefer coconut milk with my cereal, so I accidentally made my pies dairy free. 
I incorporated Califia toasted coconut almond milk (left over from my bowl of Lucky Charms) into the chocolate pudding mix and used SoDelicious coconut milk whipped cream.
