Batido de Trigo! A creamy, classic Cuban milkshake made with sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, and puffed wheat cereal. You and your family will not get enough of this indulgent treat!
To know me is to know that a batido de trigo is my all-time favorite milkshake.
Maybe it’s because it’s nostalgic or maybe it’s because it’s deliciously creamy. Either way, a batido de trigo (translated to wheat milkshake) is a classic Cuban milkshake made with sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, sugar, and puffed wheat cereal. I know it sounds weird to add puffed wheat cereal to a milkshake but trust me here. I’ve been enjoying this recipe since birth and honestly, I’ve never grown tired of it.
If you weren’t born in a Cuban family or in South Florida, all this is foreign to you. You can find this milkshake served at Cuban restaurants for breakfast or as a late night treat along with many other fruit varieties. This one for some reason was just always my favorite one.
