I know I have reviewed a product similar to this one from the same company before but I just loved the product that I had to review an other one. 

I love the vanilla and I love adding Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract to hot chocolate and coffee and adding it to recipes that call for vanilla extract.

July is  National Ice Cream Month in the to celebrate here is a yummy ice cream recipe to help you cool down a little

Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream                         

(Yield 1-1/2-quarts)
½ cup heavy cream
¾ cup caster sugar* (baker’s sugar)
1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla Extract 

2 (13.5-ounce) cans unsweetened coconut milk 
½ cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted (garnish)

  1. In a small bowl, whisk cream, sugar and vanilla extract until combined; set aside. Add coconut milk to a large glass measuring cup; add cream-sugar mixture and stir.
  2. Assemble ice cream maker and pour ice cream mixture through filling hole. For the perfect ice-cream follow the manufacturer’s appliance directions.
  3. While ice cream is churning, toast the coconut. Preheat the oven to 350°F. On a small rimmed baking sheet, evenly spread coconut; place in oven and toast, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, as coconut will toast quickly. Cool and store until ready to use.

*Caster sugar can be difficult to find. To make a superfine sugar, add granulated sugar to a mini food processor bowl and pulse until sugar is a superfine, but not a powdery consistency.
