Well this came as a request from a friend I started mixing for. He wanted a mango pineapple juice type of mix so I went hard on the mango and pineapple. I've found the 3%-1% INW Pineapple to Golden Pineapple is really a sweet spot. For the main mango's I went with the staples FLV and VT Shisha. Like many FLV flavors their mango is potent and on point. When you open Shisha Mango and smell it, its just straight mango nectar. The mango & tango is one of my new favorites. It definitely needs Mango support and the tango, whatever it is, helps the pineapple pop. If want something fruity try this and add WS-23 if you want, go nuts.
Tropical, sweet & creamy. Mango & Guanabana make a great pair. I like to use WF Island Mango and add a touch of Cap Sweet Mango to it because its also very good but it's in a more realistic way, tastes almost like mango skin, it's just such a rich flavor, it needs to be in small percentages so it doesnt take over. At this low % it just surrounds Island Mango instead and helps it to create a fuller mango flavor. I've tried adding creams in this recipe, because Guanabana is a creamy fruit, but most creams didnt taste right in this mix, so instead I went with Fruit Smoothie and I think it really worked good as a background in this. Actually Flav Cream goes pretty well with these. I added Golden Pineapple to help the Guanabana pop (Guanabana sort of has a banana
/pineapple taste to it). I also added Strawberries & Cream to give a little more creaminess... Yeah so I like this one so far. This is the first recipe I've posted on here. I only saw, I think like 2 Guanabana recipes on this site, so I figured I'd post mine, (Edit: And then I actually searched the site and saw the 800 guanabana recipes I missed lol!) If you've never tried FLV Guanabana (Ive always called it the real fruit, a Charamoya), I really recommend it. Great flavor for the summer!
Feedback appreciated. Enjoy.
Ps you can add tpa Papaya at like 2%. I think that mixes well in this as well. I really was hoping I posted a good recipe for my first post. I may have jumped the gun on this. I really thought there were no Guanabana recipes on this site that's the main reason I went with posting this recipe originally lol
Since everyone seems to be dropping pineapple recipes . . . here's something I've been working on in anticipation of the Stranger Things season 3 release. A while ago, my wife made pancakes with pineapple rings in them, which led to the idea of waffles with pineapple. I've long been trying to find a decent pineapple upside down cake, to no avail. Setting that aside (again), I turned my attention to this Stranger Things inspired concoction . . . Upside Down pineapple waffles. LB Belgian Waffle, JF Cookie, and AP to get that crispy, maple waffle. FW Butter Pecan and Sweetener to go with that JF Cookie to make up the buttery, nutty syrup. CAP Golden Pineapple and WF Pineapple Candy for the sweetened cooked pineapple rings. Finally, topped off with a dollop of CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream.
Profile- Pineapple White Chocolate RY4
A Final Farewell To Holy Holy Grail RY4 v1.
Like most times I'm coming up with a recipe I was in the mood for something weird and very different. I haven't messed with DFS HHG all that much and wanted to do so. I also haven't used VT Love (White Chocolate) much either. Naturally...lets put them together. I was going through my fruits and trying to figure out what would go well with a RY4 and White Chocolate. For some reason Pineapple stood out to me big time....so away we go!
There isn't a whole lot of complexity to this recipe and I was happy with the choice of flavors so at this point it was just a matter of nailing down percentages.
INW Pineapple/Cap Golden Pineapple- This is my favorite Pineapple combo. Cap Golden is the nice sweet slightly candied pineapple which blends really nicely with the more prickly realistic INW Pineapple. INW is a weak bitch of a flavor but it does really well at 5%.
DFS HHG- There ain't much to say here. It's delicious. Some Vanilla, some Caramel, tiny bit of bacco. Can't go wrong!
VT Love (White Chocolate)- I've fallen in love with this flavor. Nice and rich, thick almost creamy white chocolate. I prefer this to LBs White Chocolate because it isn't even close to as coconut heavy as LBs version. I love coconut, but it just doesn't belong here.
V1- I started with 7% DFS HHG, 3% Cap Golden Pineapple, 5% INW Pineapple and 2.5% VT Love. The HHG wasn't as pronounced as I was hoping for and the White Chocolate was a tad buried. The Pineapple blend was perfect just where it was.
V2- Because both HHG and the White Chocolate were not as prominent as I hoped for I bumped the HHG to 8% and the WC to 3%. This was a step in the right direction. I liked where the WC was at but the the HHG was overpowering the Pineapple blend.
V3- I decided to split the difference for the HHG and go with 7.5% enough to keep it out front but not enough to drowned out the pineapple. 3% Cap Golden Pineapple, 5% INW Pineapple, 3% VT WC and I'm in Heaven. I've mixed 2 or 3 30mls of this version within the last couple weeks and cannot get enough of it.
So the twist. Sometime in the middle of developing this recipe, DIY Flavor Shack for whatever reason...announced HHG will be getting a V2 with no more V1. This blows. I've started testing HHG V2 and so far I'm finding it lacks the body that V1 has. I'm not terribly sure how it will affect this recipe. However, I do plan on mixing up a batch with V2 to see what tweaks will need to be made to get it as close to this delightful version. So, on that note. Mix this shit up because I can confidently say its one of the best ways to use up the rest of your V1 HHG ;).
