My take on the Indian Masala Chai.
I guess the only flavor needing a note here is FLV Thai Chai. For those of you who want a "chai" flavor, this is not it. It's rather spicy and works well for this specific recipe, as the masala chai is rather spicy and usually made with black pepper. The "chai" part is instead built from the ground up, with FA Cardamom being the star and FLV clove/cinnamon/ginger as support.
FA Bilberry = FA Blueberry Juicy Ripe (cause it's not added here yet - don't use bilberry!!!)
I was going for a pie with a little something other than apple. Originally I put 0.25% FLV Pastry Zest and FLV Basil in it...but I don't know if it is just me not liking pastry zest or if it really was clashing with another note in the recipe, so I altered the recipe slightly and it definitely tastes better to me without those two, though I am tempted to add Basil back in, but I'll leave this recipe as is and if you feel adventurous you can give it a go with the basil and pastry zest if you want to.
Check out Episode 94 of the Mixin Vixens to see the full run down of what I get out of this recipe.
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
Tested on a Reload RDA tested at 68 watts on a .16 alien coil
Made on Freshes show on coffees https://youtu.be/ZqN1wzWIFbw
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.
