Once you taste-test this DIY Homemade Vanilla Extract you'll never go back to store-bought! Nothing beats the flavor of real vanilla and it's super simple to make your own vanilla extract using just two ingredients. All you have to do is the prep work and the alcohol does the rest - the longer you let this DIY vanilla extract sit in a cool, dry place, the better it ends up tasting, although it could be ready in as little as six weeks. The difference between extract from the store and this homemade alternative is amazing. Your taste buds will never be the same!

i have been wanting to make my own vanilla for so long. I hate paying so much for 0.5 oz of vanilla at the store. I'm so glad I found this DIY. I had my vanilla beans soaking for about 7 weeks. I used this in some of my Thanksgiving baking, and I tell you it was amazing! I have never been able to taste such a delicious vanilla flavor with store bought vanilla. This has truly taken my baking to a new level!

I cannot tell you guys how much i love vanilla. Most people think that is a boring favour but i like mild flavours and i like them even more when they're natural. This is a very simple project you could try, chemical free and very safe too, oh and its cheap.After this you can make your vanilla and banana smoothie with all natural ingredients.
