My morning cup looks like this:
Black with just a pinch of stevia. Perfect.
Dan's looks like this:
He loves his morning latte. Vanilla latte, that is. (And let me brag on him by saying that he really does make a terrific latte!) When you have to leave the house before 6:30 every morning, a good cup of coffee is a must. But who wants to give their hard earned dollars to Starbucks? Not us. Thanks to a sweet friend in Montana who shared her recipe with us, we've been making our own vanilla coffee syrup for a couple years now, and since we're sharing our recipe, now you can make your own, too. :)
Vanilla Coffee Syrup
2.5 c. water
1 2/3 c. sugar (we use organic but white will do)
5 t. real vanilla
Measure water into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Carefully stir sugar into boiling water; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add vanilla, stir, and allow to cool completely. Pour syrup into a glass coffee syrup bottle (perhaps an old one you've saved) using a funnel. Store syrup in closed bottle at room temperature. That's it! Easy peasy. :)
