I've been trying to find some non-alcoholic vanilla extract online but I'm not having any success. Does anyone know where to find some? Because some of these recipes call for it and I don't know where to get it. Any help would be appreciated.

Why not use natural vanilla beans? They are very cheap online and taste a lot better. I pay less than $0.25 per organic bean on eBay.

Ooh, I was just thinking about Googling non-alcoholic raw rum extract... I had a hankering to make a Bananas Foster smoothie (I used a banana, raw almond milk, a ton of cinnamon, and some freshly grated ginger)... it was DELISH, but a hint of rum flavoring would make it complete!
GlimR, thanks for the vanilla extract source! Although I use vanilla beans/pods for my vanilla flavor.

I saw some Vanilla pods on livingtreecommunity.com, but they were pretty expensive, that's what made me not want to buy them. Raweater, at what shop on ebay do you get them? Also, how do I use them, do I just put the beans in the recipe or do I have to grind them up and put water on them to make it like vanilla extract? Thanks for everyone's help.

I think the ebay seller's name is "organic-vanilla" or "organicvanilla". What I pay $20 there would be over $600 at the grocery store.
If you have a good blender you can cut up the beans in 1/2 inch bits and put that in the recipe (assuming it's blended). If it's not blended, you can put them in a coffee grinder to make a powder out of them and then use that powder.
Another solution is to cut the beans open in half lenghtwise and scrape the seeds out, but I prefer to grind them to powder, less wasted time and vanilla.
