1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 tbsp maple syrup (the real stuff!)
1 vanilla bean
Add the milk, cream, and maple syrup to a cool sauce pan. Slice and seed the vanilla bean. Whisk the seeds and bean pod into the milk mixture. Heat over medium low, stirring frequently until steaming. Remove from heat and let cool. Remove the vanilla bean pod and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
Try this recipe and tweak it to your liking. You could do two vanilla beans or add some vanilla extract for a stronger vanilla flavor. You could also try adding coconut extract instead of vanilla. Play with it!
