A refreshingly juicy, chilled, pear with a hint of vanilla...
This is another installment of my Icee range which sets out to pay homage to the splendor of single fruit varieties. My mission is to combine the best individual fruit flavors with a lick of cream and a touch of cooling to highlight their innate beauty, without adding any unnecessary complexity. I want the fruits to speak for themselves without being interrupted...
The pear layer is derived from my trusty pear duo, which, when combined, delivers and unbelievably realistic, fresh pear flavor.
FA Pear brings the juicy, run down your chin, pear whilst INW Pear adds the gritty texture, crunch and mouth feel.
Optional = Add 1% INW Pair of Pairs for an additional pear layer. I omitted this layer for the final recipe as the base was strong enough to hold it's own.
INW Shisha is my all time favorite vanilla & works a treat to add a little body and a touch of sweetness, to compliment the pear duo beautifully.
The FA Cream provides some body & creaminess without interfering with the pear flavor.
WS23 cools everything down without detracting from the stars of show. Feel free to increase the WS23 in increments of 0.25% if you prefer a colder kick. Sub WS23 with Koolada at your preferred % if preferred.
Give this baby 3 days to settle and enjoy!!
PLACEHOLDER NOTE - OOO Lychee is a placeholder for FRANDY Flavors Lychee. Its a Malaysian Lychee rebrand (I think) Im not sure what would be closest to sub with as Ive not found anything similar to this yet.
** I am sure you could sub this with another Malaysian Lychee that has a fresh Lychee Beverage profile.
Ive Been Chasing a Pear and Lychee Profile for a while now and could just not get the balances right. With my Lychee base tweaked its finally at a point where Im happy to share it.
I was aiming for a Lychee & Pear FRUIT JUICE Combo with The Lychee (using my 'DeLychious' as a Base) being just that touch above the Pear.
While Pushing for that Perfectly Sweet Lychee Juice that pops that Juicy-nectary Sweet Lychee Flavor on the inhale and the Pear to lay the profile out on the exhale. Lychee and Pear The way I Like it.
(FRA Lychee) - I recently found a Deliciously Fruit Juice Lychee type of Lychee by Frandy Flavors (a Local house brand). This Lychee gives you that FRUIT JUICE type of Lychee and the closest I can explain this is that its Very similar if not exactly the same Lychee profile that you would get with Liqui-Fruit Lychee Juice.
(CAP Sweet Lychee) - I love Cap sweet lychee as it gives that Sweetness that you would get from a Candy type of Lychee. I added this to Widen\emulsify the lychee up a bit in terms of That sweet syrupy vibe you get from a a lychee puree (fruit but almost Candied).
CAP Sweet Lychee tends to add a Bit of a 'Musky candy' note at higher % that I like it to be, thats why its added to the FRA instead of being the Main Lychee.
(FA Lychee) - I felt hat the Lychee juice could be more realistic in a actual ripe fruit way so I added the FA Lychee to give you that little Touch of Authenticity, For me at higher % its tends too get Very Florally (Overpoweringly Florally, if you are not into Flora notes) and adds that Bitter as if you chew on a piece of the Lychee Skin.
(FA Pear) I Selected this Pear for its realistic top of the harvest Fruit like flavor profile that it adds, complimenting the Realistic Fruit Juice profile with its own moistness it brings.
(INW Pear) This was added to make the pear even more realistic by expanding on the Pear Skin and TEXTURE that also makes up that Grittyness of a Pear Profile.
FA Cream Fresh:
Nothing Like some "old mans Breath" to liven things up :-)
On a serious note, this is there to accentuate/outline/sharpen the Lychee and pears profiles that sometimes gets lost into the back ground. Also acts a nice canvass for the other additives to mingle more.
FA Apple Fuji:
It just needed a touch of Magic somewhere
Added a touch of this to Pop the Tang of the Lychee a bit more, giving it that FRESH Ripe Fruit flavor instead of the a 'Warm Ripe' or Over ripeness.
I personally Added the WS because this is supposed to be a FRUIT JUICE, and fruit beverages are normally cold.
Add the SS, Doooo It!!
This is a recipe that I think I will be tweaking for a while to come. I set out to recreate the flavour of a cocktail called King Yellowman's Answer, made by my former boss and excellent cocktail bartender Kate.
We would begin by roasting pineapple chunks with honey and cinnamon until they were falling apart and caramelising into a wonderful, dark golden, spiced tray of heavenly aromas. We would then purée pears and add to the fruit mix. When all of the prep was done, we would take a generous amount of Blackwell's rum, some lime juice, a blend of the pineapple and pear purée and a dash of espresso. This was shaken for a minute, strained over fresh ice, and served with a special side ingredient: a scotch bonnet pepper filled with overproof rum, which we would light on fire whilst explaining to the customer that the longer they left it burning, the more chilli would infuse into the rum. The idea was that they would blow it out when ready, then tip some in, adjusting the spice level as they saw fit.
I haven't tried to recreate the flaming chilli garnish for this recipe, as i'm not a total sadist, but feel free to try it and let me know how it works out.
I have, however, come pretty damn close to the delicious flavour of the drink that inspired me. It is a complex flavour that needs three to four weeks to fully come together and calm down, as there is a lot going on here.
Pineapple is the main note here, with a back note of pear, mostly caught on the exhale. The coffee is present throughout, and brings a dark roasted muskiness to the whole affair. Cinnamon is also a prominent note on the exhale, bringing some spicy warmth and complementing both the fruit and the coffee.
I'm quite happy with this one, and am proud to release it as my first wholly unique recipe. I hope you enjoy!
In my next iteration I will probably up the honey and the rum, as they aren't as prominent as I would like.
This seems like a really complex recipe but in all honesty, if you don't have some of the berries in here you could likely just omit them or sub and you'd still get something really tasty. That being said, I feel the juicy lemon is pretty crucial as it adds a touch of tart undertone that gives the frozen yogurt a more authentic taste as well as giving a slight tart edge to the fruit notes, though Im sure almost any realistic lemon would suffice. Using this FroYo base, Ive made some pretty eclectic combinations, some of which I'll post at some point.
I kinda suck at writing detailed notes and don't much have the time to do so which is why to date, I've got so many recipes but so little posted lol.
I used a combo of raspberries to get an authentic berry taste, strawberry shisha to round up the top notes and a touch of cactus & pear to give it some juiciness. To me, boysenberry has that kinda fresh squished berry taste that I was looking for and is an awesome flavor with so much use. You wouldn't regret buying it.
Saskatoon berry is another really interesting flavor that I like very much, its rather reminiscent of dewberry. I know this is a flavor that some really don't like, Its really not essential to the mix so leave it out if you don't have/like it, it wont make it or break it. However, if you're looking for an interesting deviation from your typical boring stone fruit recipes, I suggest trying this.
Add whichever sweetener you like, in this mix, I prefer FLV sweetness @ 2% which gives it a more "sweet from within" taste & doesn't mess up coils.
Chill! You can add whichever cooling if you like, IF you like it frosty. WS23 @ .50% did it just right for me in this mix.
Doesn't really need a steep but I do find the yogurt comes in nicer after the 2nd or 3rd day.
Also, have tested this with 1.5 mg Nic Salts (as well as regular Nic) &, while noticeably toned down with salts, it still holds up well.
Please comment & rate if you do mix it up, not enough people do this here and its important for mixers to get feedback as a way of saying thank you for their hard work! :) In exchange for an honest review, I will do the same for one of your recipes after I mix it up. ENJOY!
Please DO NOT repost this to any other sites in any format, I have my reasons for only posting on ATF
A scrumptious, rich chocolate tart layered with fresh, juicy slices of pear.
Lava Cake does a magnificent job in emulating a decent chocolate tart, albeit not the most sophisticated torte known to man. That's where FA Cookie and JF Biscuit comes in... Combined with FA Marshmallow, they coax the life out of the Lava Cake and make it shine, and then some!
A bit of added texture and this baby transforms into a something its creators, I imagine, intended. I tested Lava Cake at 3% and 4% but found that, at highher levels, it overpowered the delicate pear notes. 2.5% works a treat but if you want the increase the chocolate, feel free to up it by a % or 2.
The pear layer is compliments of my trusty pear duo, which, when combined, delivers and unbelievably realistic, fresh pear flavor.
I upped the ratios of the pear to punch through the chocolate base and show themselves in all their glory... The pear sits beautifully atop the rich chocolate tart and balances the sweet and cocoa notes with its inherent, slightly astringent, notes.
Give this baby a good week to settle and enjoy!
A vitalizing blend of fresh pear and vibrant lychee, accented with a touch of coconut.
This combo remains one of my all time favorites but I could not find a recipe which celebrated these magical flavours well enough, hence the creation of Pychee (Pear/Lychee).
FA lychee brings the authentic, fresh, lychee flavour to the mix and lays the foundation for the lychee layer. Lychee's unique tropical flavour (described by some as a mix between watermelon, pear and grape) is unmistakable and magical! Cap Sweet Lychee boosts the FA Lychee with a sweet, canned lychee vibe and rounds the lychee profile off perfectly.
The pear layer is courtesy of my favoutite pear combo consisting of FA & INW.
FA Pear brings the fresh, juicy pear element whereas INW Pear provides the grittiness, crunch and texture of a pukka pear.
FLV Persimmon is described by many as a peach/plum hybrid. I pick up up wonderful, deep, pear/quince nuances which intensifies the pear profile and adds that little intrigue to the mix...
The Persimmon can be substituted for TPA Dragonfruit at the same %. The dragonfruit variation is excellent, I just prefer the persimmon version.
FLV sweet coconut fulfills 3 roles here: it provides a touch of creaminess, a spot of sweetness and imparts that magical taste of fresh coconut ensuring adequate depth in the mix.
Feel free to add your cooling agent of choice - WS23 at 0.5% is just enough IMHO.
Give this one a good night's sleep, 3 preferable for the floral notes to dissipate.
This is a delicious Pear/Kiwi forward fruit mix with a touch of honey! I hope you like it.
