We all have a list of comfort foods from our childhood that brings back memories of a carefree time. Tuna Fish Salad Sandwiches were among my favorites. But there is only one drink that brings me back to that time. Vanilla Milk is what it was called, and I couldn’t get enough of this stuff. It only takes 3 ingredients and I’m willing to bet you have those ingredients in your house right now. Give it a try, and you will be addicted at first sip!
What vanilla extract should I use?
I recommend a Madagascar Bourbon style vanilla extract like the one by Nielsen-Massey. It’s pricer than your typical vanilla extract but you can taste the difference plus a little goes a long way.
Can Vanilla Milk be used as a coffee creamer?
Of course Vanilla Milk could be used as coffee creamer. Just double the ingredients and you’ll have a homemade coffee creamer ready to go for the whole week.
