Chunks of Apple and Cinnamon Danish mixed into Creamy Ice Cream!
This recipe has easily become my new favorite. Liquid Barn Vanilla Ice Cream seriously blows TFA VBIC out of the water.
The Ice Cream
V1 & V2 - This was my first go around with LB VIC and I'm very impressed. For my ice creams I normally go with TFA Vanilla Swirl and TFA VBIC, a combo Foment_Life introduced me too. I love the way Vanilla Swirl brings a bit of the soft serve sweet vanilla ice cream to the table so I kept with that even though going with LB VIC this time. The two of them work really well together.
V1- My original Apple blend for this recipe was Cap Green Apple at 1.5% and FA Fuji at 2.5%. My original intention for the apple part was to get the the sour/tang of the green apple while still have the Fuji be the main apple flavor. Testing out the first run over a few days, the Cap Green Apple seemed to clash with the rest of the recipe so I decided to pull it out.
V2- I decided to pull the Cap Green Apple all together and bump FA Fuji to 3.5%. Though not what I exactly wanted at first, I actually liked this version far far more.
The Cinnamon Danish
V1 - Cap Cinnamon Danish Swirl is the star of this aspect of the mix. While it does a bang up job of having the perfect danish/bakery note plus cinnamon, used to high it and overpowers the other parts of the mix. Keeping it somewhat low gave me the pastry aspect with a touch of cinnamon however, not enough to come through the Ice Cream and Apple.
V2- With the CDS in V1 not exactly being as pronounced as I was hoping for, I upped it .25% and paired it with just a touch of FLV Rich Cinnamon (I mean literally....A TOUCH) to help boost the cinnamon up. And it did it perfectly.
Overall thoughts on each version.
V1- Ice Cream end was perfect, rich and creamy, with a hint of soft serve vanilla tossed in there. Apples, not right, Cap Green Apple didn't blend too well, has to go. While the CDS was okay, it still needs a bit of help to get to where it should be.
V2- Hell yeah. Without a doubt blows V1 out of the water. No contest. The Apple and Cinnamon play so well off of eachother. I was 100% content with the recipe.
V3- Now...here is where it gets good. I decided to bounce the recipe off of AlfredPudding for some feedback. While he liked it, he came back with some thoughts. He recommended bumping up FLV RIch Cinnamon from .05% to .10%, dropping FA Fuji just a hair and adding some Pear in there to boost the Apple a touch more. JACKPOT. After making those adjustments I could not be happier with the outcome.
A simple green apple flavor. Real tasty, needs a day or 2 to steep. On shake and vape TPA Green apple is the main note and is a little harsh. After a 2 days the harshness fades and FLV Sour Apple takes the a step forward. Always loved green apple vapes, especially out of a tank or mtl device, this recipe is designed for both.
Sweeten to taste but the CAP Super sweet will round some of the harshness.
Tested on the Horizon Tech Falcon Tank and the Zenith tank.
A refreshingly juicy, chilled, pear with a hint of vanilla...
This is another installment of my Icee range which sets out to pay homage to the splendor of single fruit varieties. My mission is to combine the best individual fruit flavors with a lick of cream and a touch of cooling to highlight their innate beauty, without adding any unnecessary complexity. I want the fruits to speak for themselves without being interrupted...
The pear layer is derived from my trusty pear duo, which, when combined, delivers and unbelievably realistic, fresh pear flavor.
FA Pear brings the juicy, run down your chin, pear whilst INW Pear adds the gritty texture, crunch and mouth feel.
Optional = Add 1% INW Pair of Pairs for an additional pear layer. I omitted this layer for the final recipe as the base was strong enough to hold it's own.
INW Shisha is my all time favorite vanilla & works a treat to add a little body and a touch of sweetness, to compliment the pear duo beautifully.
The FA Cream provides some body & creaminess without interfering with the pear flavor.
WS23 cools everything down without detracting from the stars of show. Feel free to increase the WS23 in increments of 0.25% if you prefer a colder kick. Sub WS23 with Koolada at your preferred % if preferred.
Give this baby 3 days to settle and enjoy!!
I took an old school blue raspberry technique (lemon+lime+berries) and jammed it, gummed it, candied it, sweetened it and pushed it to a point where I believe this is better than the commercial juice. The candies I added to this mix went impressively well with the fruits and made this more blue than I ever expected. I got that mixer feelings of, nothing is better and more satisfying mixing than the chance of something to go right and then it does. This is so much fun to vape so I had to share this lucky roll of a recipe. I am betting that the King Pazzo FA is the main transforming flavor because without it this recipe is not nearly as good or as blue.
Please don't ask me what I was thinking when I made this. To be honest, I just threw some flavours together and hoped they worked. A couple of minor tweaks and here you have it. For me, the banana and pineapple are at the forefront of this. All the other flavours seem to blend in nicely. I've put 15 days steep time as I made this Nov 25th and didn't like it after 2/3 days so I just left it. Just trying it Dec 23rd and it's pretty damned tasty.
Trying out some different accents for my last recipe, this is one of them I really enjoyed. Just going to go over the differences,and why I pick certain ingredients.
The first and most obvious got rid of the peach, and put in green apple. CAP green apple hard candy, is a great green apple candy flavor, that pairs perfectly with, FLV fire cinnamon. Also added a little FA pair to accent the Apple and melon.
Reduced the amount of vanilla swirl in this recipe. I made 120 mil test batch of mrs. Claus dirty melon milk, and it's gone 😋 so obviously I really enjoyed it. That said, I knew we should get away with reducing the vanilla swirl by a few percentage points.
Sincerely hope you enjoy, happy holidays!!!
Bonus recipe, this one was from last year, and still one of my favorites.
I wanted a nice warm, subtly spiced apple cider. I could drink those little cider packets by the gallon during the winter. I find that most "jug" cider has a metallic taste so I usually prefer the packets unless I open up the wallet for the really good pressed cider.
Hangsen Apple Mix is my new favorite concentrate for apple cider mixes. It's a little artificial so I add some crisp authentic apple with FA Fuji. The liquid amber turns them both a little more towards cooked and adds some depth and warmth.
TFA Brown Sugar is here to mingle with the inherent darkness in Liquid Amber and turn it a bit sweet and slightly caramelized.
The obvious choice for cinnamon is the king, FLV Rich Cinnamon. I use it super low here so it doesn't take over the mix and just accents it.
The Apple Mix, Fuji and Rich Cinnamon together can go a bit in the dry direction so I'm boosting the juiciness with FA Pear. It also adds just a little depth to the apple.
I like a little orange zest simmered with my warm spiced apple cider. It brightens up the apples and accents the cinnamon really well. I chose FW Tangerine because it's a subtle sweet tangerine that doesn't bully other flavors. It does the job of brightening this mix without being obvious.
This is good shake and vape but give it an overnight steep to get really saturated flavor.
