Why is vanilla ice cream white when vanilla extract is brown?

Well...the vanilla bean "is" brown...but its flavor is so strong that just a tiny little bit can flavor an entire quart of ice cream, and hardly show any color...
Because milk is white, and there is a lot of milk to a very little bit of vanilla. That is why vanilla is slightly darker than white, and french vanilla is slightly darker, since it has a little more vanilla extract in it.
