People are always asking for a vanilla bean powder recipe… I felt like it was such a simple thing that I never rushed to blog it, but my friends have been nagging me for about 6 months to do it. The quality of your vanilla bean powder is naturally highly dependent on the quality of your beans. Skinnymixers recommends Vanilla&Co beans, not just because we have an affiliate relationship with them – but their beans really are the best. They are super moist, fat and high quality. Take a look for yourself and definitely support an awesome small Australian business!
