I wanted to try and modify the recipe to use honeydew instead. I also messed around slightly with the grainy notes to hopefully counteract FE sticky rice's shortcomings after a steep.
Shake and vape - this one seems like it isn't the best for shake and vape. I was actually kind of disappointed when I first tried it after mixing. It was very evident that the flavors weren't meshing together nicely.
3 day steep - whew, it's crazy what a few days steep can do for a juice. It is tasting a hell of a lot better now. Basically how you would imagine shyndos mango sticky rice would taste but with honeydew. Might wanna change the coconut notes around and maybe add in some tfa coconut candy. Honeydew notes might be a bit on the stronger side, i personally enjoy it like this, but maybe JF honeydew melon could be lowered slightly. Will probably come out with a v2 of this recipe idea.
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.
Buttery crumbly pastry, a layer of jam and banana, filled with custard and topped with coconut.
I’m a huge fan of a method I call the “two birds method”, showcased here by using the VTA creamy custard to aid the custard element and also that banana note without using a banana titled concentrate.
The custard - creamy custard, premium and Devon cream make up the custard here, the creamy custard adds a basic custard taste, mouthfeel and that banana note. The FA premium adds another layer and Is brilliant at lower levels of the spectrum and the Devon cream transforms all of that into your typical tinned custard taste.
The jam - VTA raspberry jam is a killer concentrate but needs help here to prolong that raspberry taste on the tongue so good old raspberry sweet comes to the rescue, both concentrates together along with super sweet give that jammy taste.
The pie crust - the apple pie, biscuit and zeppola make up the pie crust here, there’s something in zeppola that to me adds a “crumble” mouthfeel at lower percentages, along with INW biscuit, FA zeppola also has a slight coconut note which helps the coconut out by giving it another dimension.
The coconut - fairly explanatory... the FA coconut adds a nice coconut taste while making the whole vape fresh and moist, along with the zeppola it’s a really good coconut flavour that I’m happy with.
Please rate and review if you make it 😊
This a truly creamy coconut cream meringue. I took inspiration from various lemon meringue pies but I was looking for something less pungent than straight up lemon meringue. I think the whole secret to smooth pout the lemon flavor in general is FA Apple pie and FA meringue. For the coconut side FLV Sweet coconut is unbeatable but I wanted to help with the other 2 coconuts I had for different notes. To add creaminess FA Custard premium is my favourite and FW coconut cream pie give a good base. Probably all this could be done way easier and with fewer ingredients by an experienced mixer. After a few attempts I love the result. It needs a few days to settle up but after that it's creamy goodness. The % are a bit high for somebody but I feel they work for me. Sweetener is also optional but after trying both I prefer it with.
I would like to thank many mixer who I took inspiration from , expecially DazCole, but I don't remeber all the recepies I looked at, so thank you mixer community!
p.s . If you feel the lemon still pungent, add a few drops of TFA Smooth or similar.
This is a sweet potato rice pudding inspired by the Haitian and Cuban influences on New Orleans. Is it a stretch thematically? Absolutely. I wanted to do a NOLA inspired recipe but I wanted to stray from what would generally be expected and this is what I came up with. I'm not going to bore you with the details of the trip around the world my mind takes when I brainstorm so here's my flavor notes.
VT Rice Base - Honestly I ordered this FOR this recipe and it just worked. It imparts a sweet sticky rice taste and texture to the whole mix. You get that grainy taste and mouthfeel from rice and a sweet undertone.
CAP Horchata - Sticking with the rice theme and adding a bit of cinnamon and flair to the recipe as a whole. I tried it higher and it gets to be a bit overpowering for me so I settled at 1.5 on this one to just add that touch of cinnamon evocative of fall.
FLV Vanilla Pudding - Brings a creamy mouthfeel to the recipe after a few days steep and knocks off some of the graininess from the Rice Base. Honestly I probably need to bring this down some, but this is more or less my first iteration of this recipe.
FA Coco/TPA Coconut Candy - I wanted to add some coconut to this and this is the combo and percentage I settled on. You may or may not taste it, I get it faintly and it helps add some sweetness to the rice base and brighten the recipe a touch.
HS Pumpkin Pie - yup. this is the "sweet potato" base. It's what I've got so I can't say much about it. Planning on experimenting with other things here in the future.
FA Carmel/FW Butterscotch Ripple - This is my go to combo for a buttery caramel note and it works well here. It adds some darkness and heaviness to the body and gives a buttery undertone. Really helps bring out the pumpkin pie in correlation with the CAP Horchata's cinnamon note.
This is very much a work in progress and a bit of a learning experience as well. Any and all criticism or advice is much appreciated.
Tried a juice before that was supposed to be like a samoa girl scout cookie and it missed the mark completely so I'm giving a shot at it myself.
FA Cookie: This is the base of the cookie, fa cookie reminds me of a thin crunchy cookie.
FA caramel/coco: sweet caramel and a somewhat artificial coconut for the toppings. I'm avoiding any chocolate aspect for the moment because I think it would overpower the whole mix and power over the caramel and coconut, which are the main flavors I like to taste in a samoa.
TPA Graham cracker clear: Help out the fa cookie. Bring some sweetness and a little vanilla/spice
TFA bavarian cream: Sweeten up the mix. Thicken up the mouthfeel. Bring some fullness to the dryness of the cookie.
