Interesting ingredients. I have a type 1 diabetic son. You do realise that Vanilla Extract is high in sugar?? There is allot in the recipe but it is still enough to spike sugar levels. Essence has low or not sugar

Hi Wendy, thanks for commenting! Vanilla essence is a better choice for those who need to monitor their sugar levels, and can be used in place of vanilla extract. Vanilla extract is a better option if you’re looking for something more natural, which is why a lot of our recipe creators prefer it.
