Vanilla Ice Cubes- Nice, Nice Baby!by The Vanilla Guru on 09/01/12
A friend shared a vanilla ice cube recipe the other day and of course being the Vanilla Guru we needed to check it out. The cubes solve the problem of the watery ice cube ruining your drink and will add a creamy element to whatever you're drinking. If you look us up on facebook you'll see a photo of ours. Must admit ours are much darker but we did use the optional extract and substituted our vanilla sugar. Basic recipe is mix 2 cups almond milk, 1/3 cup Mannix Vanilla Sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of 2x Mannix Vanilla Extract,1 bean scraped (save and use pod later-see previous post) and 1/2 teaspoon of Mannix Ground Vanilla. Heat in pot below boiling over medium high heat for about 15 minutes stirring often. Cool to room temperature and pour into two trays. Some like it in ginger ale root beer or other soft drinks.
