homemade organic vanilla syrup.

Happy Monday, friends!

I’ve got just the thing to make your week a little sweeter: a recipe for organic vanilla bean coffee syrup! Not only is this syrup ridiculously good and easy to make, it’s also much more cost-effective than buying the pre-made stuff from the store, which typically has artificial flavoring and preservatives — no thank you!

organic vanilla syrup recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 organic vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 tsp. organic vanilla extract
  • a container for storing (ours was $3.99 from Home Goods)

Directions:
Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the pan and throw in the pod as well. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the vanilla bean pod and stir in the vanilla extract. Let cool. Store in the refrigerator.

Have a great week!
