A Cap’n Crunch milkshake that tastes like Saturday morning cartoons... but better

When I was a kid, I loved eating Cap’n Crunch cereal for breakfast. On occasion I still love to eat it now, and it brings me back to my childhood. I thought it would be a great idea to take my favorite childhood cereal and turn it into a boozy milkshake! (You can totally omit the alcohol if you make this recipe for the kiddos, but when you’re having girls' night, all your friends will surely be impressed.)

This recipe calls for vanilla vodka, but you can use Baileys or any other flavored vodka of your choice. This recipe is super simple, delicious, and it’s everything you’d been missing as an adult.
