Let's say you’ve just bought some of our vanilla products from us or you’ve just received some as a gift. What do you make with it? If you aren’t someone who buys our products in bulk, and just want to make some tasty treats at home, then this blog post is for you. We’ve compiled five of our favourite recipes for you that you can add our vanilla to – we’ve added the ingredients so you can check which ones suit your diet.
