How to Make: Cap’n Crunch Batidos

June 30, 2014 Updated: June 30, 2014

Batidos, the Latin American drink that’s made with milk, ice, and flavoring (usually fruit), is a great drink for cooling down during the summer. It’s similar to the American milkshake, but it often has unusual ingredients. It results in a unique taste that you can’t find anywhere else.

Black Cat Coffee, a local coffee shop in Portland, puts a unique twist on this classic drink by using cereal as the source of flavoring. This combination of ingredients is more surprising than it should be – after all, we all know that cereal and milk go together perfectly!

This simple recipe requires just four ingredients to make, and in no time you’ll be able to sip on this delicious cereal smoothie.


1 cup soy milk (or any choice of milk)
3/4 cup Cap’n Crunch
5-6 ice cubes
1 tablespoon simple syrup


Put everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Makes one serving. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
