Homemade Vanilla Syrup

This homemade Vanilla Syrup is the perfect addition to your coffee, iced latte, and cocktails! You will only need 3 ingredients and a few minutes to make it.

Homemade Vanilla Syrup

Lately, I’ve been dabbling more into making my own syrups (like this Ginger Beer Syrup or this Blueberry Syrup) and I love it.

So this time, I’ve made my own super easy, homemade Vanilla Syrup.

What I love about this vanilla syrup is that

  • you only need three ingredients
  • you only need 10 minutes
  • and it stores forever in the fridge

I’ve been adding it to my iced lattes and it’s such a good addition! Usually, I just add maple syrup to sweeten the iced lattes, but this vanilla syrup easily brings my iced-latte game to the next level! I add about 1-2 teaspoons of syrup.

It’s also a really easy way to wow your friends if you’re having them over for a cocktail night ;) My favorite cocktail with this vanilla syrup is this Gin Basil Smash right now. For cocktails, I add about 1 tablespoon of syrup.

How to make Vanilla Syrup

The Ingredients & possible substitutes

You’ll only need a handful of ingredients:

  • whole vanilla beans – you can also use ground vanilla beans (1 tablespoon) or vanilla extract (1 tablespoon)
  • water
  • sugar – I am using white sugar but can also use dextrose (for a low fructose version) or brown sugar.

The Basic Steps

As always you can find the whole recipe below in the box. I want to show you the basic steps first, though.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 whole vanilla beans
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Slice open the vanilla beans and scrape out the vanilla seeds.
  • Add the vanilla beans, vanilla seeds, sugar, and water into a pot.
  • Bring the water to a boil, then let it simmer (no lid on) for 5-10 minutes. The sugar should have dissolved by now. The syrup will thicken in the fridge even more.
  • Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag if you want to get rid of the speckles or if you want to keep them you can pour it through a strainer. Then you can fill the syrup into a bottle and store it in the fridge forever.
