Vanilla Syrup [Starbucks Copycat]


Since I try to do my very best to be frugal with my spending, I do not buy Starbucks or any other coffee syrup bottles regularly. But I do admit that it can be very tempting when they start calling my name and wanting me to answer it’s cry lol. As you can tell, I prefer to add a little sweetener to my coffee drinks. 🙂 So, if you’re the same as me, and you’re attempting to be more thrifty, then may I suggest you try this vanilla syrup in your coffee and or latte in the comfort of your own home. You will be shocked how easily syrups can be made with only a few everyday ingredients in your own kitchen.

This homemade vanilla syrup has a rich vanilla flavor, golden brown color, and perfect syrupy taste. Now savor your cup of espresso or coffee with homemade vanilla syrup with a hint of caramel flavor.

Vanilla Syrup

Makes about 1 1/3 cups

INGREDIENTS

1 C. water
2/3 C. granulated sugar
1/3 C. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. of salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

In a medium sized saucepan, add granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, and water. Over medium-high heat, slowly stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. You can make syrup only with granulated sugar and water, but brown sugar and pinch of salt will give a richer flavor for the final result. When the syrup reaches a full boil with big bubbles, just let it cook for about five minutes. Reducing the syrup by boiling will make the syrup thicker. Then remove the pan from the heat and put the saucepan in the refrigerator for about half an hour or until it’s sufficiently cooled. Finally, add 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract and stir until combined.
