A lemonhead coated in blue raspberry dust. The percents are higher than I normally go but the finished product is advapable. I really like lemon and blue razz vapes so i figured I would combine them and this was the outcome. Off the shake it's pretty good but a few days steep definitely brings it together. Hope you like it.
10/22/19 adjustments..added flv raspberry @ 1%/switch flv lemon for flv lemonade 2%..This gave it more depth and a smoother, slightly sweeter finish.
Made for the Saturday Fresh 03 show - simple tasty mixes
Off the shake this has a thick creamy milky caramel (from dulce de leche) note on the inhale that transitions to a full creamy vanilla cheesecake with a light toasted coconut note on the exhale. Nice off the shake better at 3 - 5 day s
I prefer JF dulce de leche to TPA is just a fuller creamier profile but TPA can be also be used at the same %
If you do not want a predominant coconut note you can sub TPA cheesecake (graham cracker) for the PUR toasted coconut cheese cake as TPA cheese cake has a light coconut note to it as well.
if you do not have OOO vanilla custard cheesecake you can sub INW yes we can cheesecake they both have a very creamy body with a light vanilla note to it.
This will need a 3 - 5 day steep for the cheesecake to really come forward .
I love coconut sticky rice and really wanted to see how close I could come to it . On the inhale you get the lemon/lime and some of the paw paw notes that transitions to the coconut and rice.
The rice is a mix of sweet rice which is a sweet slightly creamy note and the rice base which helps to support with some texture and rice aroma
I love sweet coconut by flv it adds body and creaminess to the mix but I wanted that coconut to really pop so FA coconut works or even a little TPA coconut candy could help if you want more sweetness.
paw paw is a great fruit it has mango and cantaloupe notes with a creamy almost banana body
the lemongrass and lime add some brightness and top notes that works in this mix . lemongrass is a pretty potent and has a light floral note to it that can be noticed in back end but works in this mix for me
The vanilla cream just help fill in the body and blend this mix and adds a brighter vanilla note
I wanted more sweetness in this, so I added sweetness - but sweeten to your taste
This ice cream is inspired by Vietnamese style iced coffee, which is typically very strong coffee served over ice with sweetened condensed milk. Vietnamese Coffee is just slightly lighter then French roast , smooth and not acidic.
On inhale you get a light vanilla note that transitions to the coffee/ cinnamon and ends with touch of cardamon. it needs a week for the creams to really fill out and become a nice rich and creamy ice cream

This ice cream is a custard styled ice cream - so @Freshepies quick custard base ( LB ice cream and FLV pudding) works ideally here.
The only condensed milk I have had any luck with is PUR - it just really works and worth picking up and helps fill in the middle of this mix
For the Coffee I wanted a darker roast that would hold up to all the creams and WF brazillian can do that - the Coffee liquor leans more to a coffee sryup and blends into the ice cream base. (Off the shake the coffee will be light but WF brazillian coffee tends to grow - so wait a week before you decided to tweak this mix to you preference)
Cardamon is used more in the middle east with coffee but a couple of recipes for Vietnamese coffee ice cream I saw on line included it, so decided to add it and I really like some of the contrast it providers to the darker coffee notes
OPTION: ADD WS 23 and sweetner to your taste - I wanted a touch more sweetener, as this leaned a bit on the savory side without it to me . I like a a little bit of cinnamon in my coffee - but not every one does so add the cinnamon brown sugar if it is your thing
