I've heard people mention adding Vanilla to their yogurt, etc. What kind of vanilla...vanilla extract like we use for baking? I thought that was made of Sugar and we couldn;t have it on the diet? Any thoughts?
Thanks again. I know I have so many question. :/
Pure Vanilla Extract is made from vanilla bean extracted in alcohol, this is allowable. WHat should be of concern are the generally cheaper vanilla flavorings that have corn syrup or sugar. The tiny amount of alcohol is generally tolerated.
I have bought organic vanilla extract made by Frontier that is not alcohol based, but vegetable glycerin based. It tastes the same as the alcohol kind and is much cheaper than real vanilla beans. Got it at Whole Foods.
