Vanilla Bean Sugar

Flavorful & aromatic sugar infused by mixing ground vanilla beans or vanilla caviar into the sugar. The flecks of vanilla throughout the sugar add a strong visual identity, allowing you to 'taste it with your eyes'. The beautiful appearance of this vanilla sugar makes it great for gifting!

Prep Time 15 mins


  • Knife or Spice Grinder (coffee grinder or blender works)
  • Jar or Container (for storing)


  • 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1-2 Ground Vanilla Beans or Caviar from Beans (any variety will work)


  • Place sugar into desired container.
  • If using ground vanilla beans: Place whole beans into spice grinder and grind to desired consistency.
    If using vanilla caviar: split beans lengthwise with knife and scrape out seeds with a knife or spoon.
  • Add ground vanilla beans or caviar to sugar.
  • Shake/whisk/mix sugar and vanilla together to evenly combine.
  • Optional: if using vanilla caviar, add used bean pods to container for extra flavor.
  • Cover container and store. Vanilla sugar can be used immediately but the flavor will continue to grow as it sits - we recommend waiting at least two weeks.


Depending on how course/fine you grind your beans there may be small bits of the bean pod detectable in food or drinks. Some enjoy these small remnants while others may find them unpleasant. You may want to sift sugar when using if undesired.
