This is a lemon forward citrus mix, with green tea accents provided by the Cucumber, Zen Garden, Black Pepper, and Cardamom flavors. 4 drops of FA Bitter Wizard per 30ml is essential (that’s less than 0.1%, but 0.1% is the smallest amount you can list here). I use Bitter Wizard in every recipe I mix, unless it’s meant to be very sweet. Bitter Wizard neutralizes the sweetness of the VG and uncovers the subtleties of the flavors. This is the first mix that’s entirely my own invention, and I’m very pleased with it. It tastes good without steeping, but the herb and spice flavors don’t show up until a week or two after you mix, so I recommend steeping it. Adding a little coconut makes for a good variation.
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
So this is a Dr Pepper styled beverage using the spectacular @alfredpudding .007 cola mix https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/121307#007_cola_by_alfredpudding cola base . if you have never made this mix, you should - to date It is one of my favorite mixes. From the minute I tried his mix, I wanted to try and make a Dr Pepper styled mix -
while Dr Pepper may have 23 flavors there are several flavors that I think make it signature : birch/ sarsaparilla, almond/ amaretto/Cherry, cardamon and molasses are the key flavors I wanted to try and pull out
FLv root beer to me is one of the best root beers around and will provide that birch note I am after
FA almond provides that sweet almond extract / amaretto sweetness
WF molasiess is a dark syrup sweetness that works really well with the WF blackcherry jelly bean together I get almost a licorice type cherry note
FA cardamon is not something that you can notice unless you are really looking for it but I do find it adds "something" and you notice it when is it not there on the finish for sure
While this may not be spot on Dr peper for some - I think it is close and am really enjoying it
Ok so I mixed this up in the DIY_eJuice discord in collaboration is @Isuamadog. There is a need for a sweet creamy base which where FLV cream comes into play for the creaminess, but to water it down a bit and add more sugar FLV Milk & honey was introduced. Combine this with the sweet rice and you have that silky rice with a touch a touch of pistachio cream topped with toasted almonds. The pistachios play really nicely with the almond. Enjoy!
Cardamom rose gingerbread......
On VU, we have a DIY challenge going right now.....I was looking for an idea that was unique and interesting. My idea wasn’t chosen, but I was intrigued.....so I mixed it.
Caps Gingerbread was my first choice, but it needs help in the cake department so I went with JF Yellow Cake......mostly because it happened to be sitting on my desk. JF Bavarian for the creamy, dark sweetness and mouthfeel. FA Rose and Cardamom because it’s the only rose/cardamom I have.....used em low so they didn’t take over. FA Meringue mostly for the sweetness.
Off the shake, everything was in your face. 10 days later, all has mellowed quite nicely. Cardamom gingerbread on the inhale, a nice light rose on the exhale. Yum.
My first original recipe! I was inspired by the Mixin Vixens challenge, but I am not fond of sweets, so this is a more savory take on an ice cream sundae, so, you may want to add sweetener. I was shooting for a nut ice cream, topped with caramel, unsweetened whipped cream, and candied pecans. It is dense and creamy.
I chose LB Vanilla Ice Cream as the base as it has received great reviews, and added TFA Pralines and Cream and Butter Pecan to add the nut flavor. The FE Oak Milk adds a little depth to the flavor, and brings in that savory note. I love cardamon with dairy, so I added FA Cardamom for spice.
The Dulce De Leche adds a little more cream and backs up the Caramel.
The Whipped Cream because, what would this sundae be without whipped cream?
Tested on ss316 0.5 ohm 40 watts. It needs at least a two week steep, but is best with a one month steep.
I may be the only one crazy enough to try to pull off a full recipe chai from scratch but here we go.
Your classic Masala Chai spices are usually made up of:
For the main note, I chose FA Cinnamon Ceylon at .75%. It is a bakery-type cinnamon that is perfect for spiced beverages that mixes extremely well with the next spice.
FA Cardamom at .5% is a sweet, green, true cardamom flavor that no other company does. Thank goodness FlavourArt does it right. You cannot have a chai recipe without cardamom.
FW Ginger has a fresh ginger root flavor. Too much, even .5%, can over take the mix. I found the sweet spot for this mix to be .25%
TPA Holiday Spice at .5% stands in for my Nutmeg spice. I love this flavor for any winter recipe.
FLV Clove at .30% is perfect to make this bold and spicy. Someone once said, "FLV Clove is pretty damn analogous to FLV Rich Cinnamon in that it's bold, ridiculously strong, way too expensive, and pretty great." I fully agree.
The last one I am sure has a lot of people scratching their heads. FA Black Pepper at .5%. It's a warm, woody spice that is a delicious addition to this recipe.
Then I added the FA Black Tea and made it sweet; And for the milk component, I went with FA Vienna Cream 1%, which really stands out when you add spice, FA Vanilla Tahity .5% for sweetness, and FA Cream Fresh 1.0% for bulk.
This puppy needs a 5 day steep and a day or so to breathe. Do not skip the breathing. It needs to breathe off some spice.
I wouldn't say it's an ADV, but it's definitely tasty with the cool weather coming.
