We can't seem to find the vanilla milk that Horizon makes anymore (and that my daughter loves), so we found this recipe. Good advice about the alcohol level of real vanilla extract, it's pretty significant. I found Pure Vanilla Flavor Alcohol Free from Trader Joe's. We put 2 teaspoons in, not one. Good!

Simply deelicious. I used soy milk with just a touch of sugar since it was already pretty sweet on its own. I also had this hot! It's wonderful as a hot drink. Mmm! Thanks!

My 5 year old just thought this milk was strange tasting. My husband thought it was ok. I thought it had potential to taste like snow cream! I would make this for myself but next time I will put it in my magic bullet with a little more splenda (about 1/2 tbs. more) with some ice. Good flavor to me...just would like a little sweeter with some ice to make like snow crea (one of my childhood favs)!!

My son has loved this for a long time, but I always use imitation vanilla for him (and a little nutmeg too) He likes it warm before bedtime.

I have been doing this for years but have never added sugar. My kids also like coconut extract in place of the vanilla - yum!

Pretty good stuff. I just made this for myself to try. I'll stick to the sugar free chocolate milk mix for my kids, and I doubt I'll make this again. But it was worth trying!

Made this milk to use in Peachy Peach smoothie #134652. My husband and granddaughter both had a glass of this milk and really liked it. Thanks Pantry Chef Starkey. Bullwinkle.
