So, if you can believe it, Walmart sells a strawberry cheesecake ice cream that's actually pretty damn good. This is my closest approximation of it. Before you turn your nose up at it, I've given out several samples of this and received nothing but good feedback. It's a very simple recipe, to be sure, but if you're looking for a creamy strawberry cheesecake this fits the bill quite nicely.
INW Biscuit does a nice job giving us the little crumbs of crust that are littered throughout the ice cream.
TPA Marshmallow, CAP NYCC, and TPA VBIC give a nice, sweet cheesecake ice cream without any sour notes and a thick, creamy mouthfeel.
FA Juicy Strawberry was my go-to here because it gives a sweet candy strawberry syrup flavor that stands up well by itself among the creams.
If you don't have Juicy Strawberry, you can probably get away with subbing a Strawberry Ripe/Sweet blend with emphasis on the sweet strawberry, but you'll lose some of the inherent juiciness that you get from FA. I don't think people who get pepper from TPA VBIC will be bothered too badly by it at 1% here, and I wouldn't recommend subbing CAP in because the slight spice that comes from TPA VBIC fills in the body that would be a little thin using NYCC alone at only 3%.
*Edit: I knew I had cribbed this cream base from somewhere, but couldn't remember where. I went back and looked, and I have to give credit to @Thadentman for his excellent work.
Description from wikipedia - a spherical wafer which is filled with a white milk cream and white blanched almonds. It is surrounded by a coconut layer.
Ok so this is one i havent seen around so far, so i wanted to take a (noobie) shot at recreating it in a vape. Raffaello's are probably one of my all time favorite confection, they are just so damn perfect. The thin wafer shell coated in a sweet milk kind of cream with little flakes of sugary coconut, on the inside of the wafer shell there is a buttery, smooth, light but rich cream that is just unreal. Buried in the creamy center lies a full almond, which just works perfectly! If you havent tried one in real life yet i highly recommend it, they are just perfect! I bought some for a reference while blueprinting this recipe, the main notes i was after was the nice crunchy wafer spehere, the buttery, smooth and delicious cream inside, the coconut outside and the almond inside.
Wow, this is actually starting to get really really tasty. Seems like i got lucky with the cream side of things, because it is tasting very similar to a real Raffaello. the bakery/wafer notes seem like they need to be more prominent, or maybe just need some more time to settle in with the creams. I get a nice smooth coconut texture, but i think this recipe could use a bit more actual coconut notes... gonna play around and see what i can do. Same goes for the almond, which i am considering adding some marzipan or maybe just subbing alltogether with something like toasted almond by TFA. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
