If you're not going to make your own coconut or almond milk then you're probably familiar with the selection of flavors in stores. The milks are offered in chocolate, vanilla, and original flavors. Most of the time, without thinking I grab for the plain and unsweetened. Once in a while, I get a guilty feeling (and feel like loving over my shoulder). Asking myself, what if I just have it a little sweet, while quickly glancing at vanilla. Too bad there is so much extra sugar in the flavored coconut and almond milks. The vanilla flavors comes from a bean, independent from sugar and sweetening. There is quick solution for adding the lovely taste of vanilla.
