20 Recipes Every Millennial Knows How to Make
If the many wacky food creations of the last decade prove anything, it’s that millennials can’t help but be creative. Now that there's an Instagram audience to please, there are no longer any limits on what you can or can’t eat. Frankenfoods like Cronuts and Croissant Tacos thrive, and so do photogenic bevs like charcoal and rose-colored lattes. With ideas from frosé popsicles to homemade boba tea, these 20 recipes perfectly capture the millennial essence — and they’ll definitely look great on the ‘gram too.
Chocolate Ring Pops: There's no better way to tell someone "I love you" than by giving them a chocolate ring — trust us; we've tried.
Grilled Cheese Tacos: Now you never have to decide between a taco and a grilled cheese again.
Boozy Snowcones: Frozen boozy treats existed before millennials, but not like this. These snowcones are fruity and icy, and will get you just the right amount of tipsy.
2-Ingredient Vegan Ice Cream: Even though this "ice cream" is made from just bananas and a bit of milk, it tastes shockingly like the real deal.
Rosé Adult Otter Pops: You know you secretly (or not-so-secretly) still love Otter Pops. Here's your grown-up excuse to love them even more.
Rainbow Toast: You don't have to go to a fancy cafe to get your rainbow toast fix. This recipe will show you how to do it on your own at home.
Fruit-Infused Water: Infusing your water with fruit is a tasty and easy way to get yourself to drink enough H2O every day. Not to mention, it's pretty gorgeous.
Coconut Cookie Butter: This treat is like Speculoos and Almond Joys all rolled into one, so if you're indecisive, you don't have to choose.
DIY Wine Gummies: Make these for your next girls' night, or whenever a plain glass of wine just won't cut it.
Grilled Cheese Fries: These fries are begging to be dipped in a warm bowl of tomato soup.
Charcoal Lattes: Here's a Goth answer to all the rainbow lattes blowing up your feed. They're perfect for anyone who can't imagine wearing anything other than black.
Sangria Popsicles: This frozen version of the cocktail favorite is definitely best in summertime, but we won't judge if you just can't wait.
Boozy Gummy Bears: Jell-O shots were great when you were younger, but these boozy gummy bears are way more appropriate for the sophisticated adult you are now.
Tapioca Milk Tea: When a mad craving for boba hits — as it often does — use this recipe to make it ASAP.
Cookie Dough Donut Sundae: This sundae is here to save the day in those moments when you want all the desserts at once.
Fresh Fruit Spring Rolls: Spring rolls don't have to be savory, and this colorful, Disney World-inspired recipe is proof.
Letter-Shaped Pretzels: Can you believe it? We found a way to make pretzels even more fun than they already were.
Spiced Rose Latte: Here's a chicer alternative to rainbow lattes. Top with edible flowers if you have them, but if not it will still look just as pink and beautiful.
Wine Sorbet: Why drink wine when you can eat it? This recipe includes instructions for white, red, and rosé sorbets so there's something for everyone.
Avocado Pasta Dough: This recipe swaps the eggs in traditional pasta for avocados, because avocado everything, right?
