My experiments with African Horned Cucumber continue. This recipe is based on a recipe for an African Horned Cucumber sauce recipe:
It is an interesting mix of fruits with spice. I really enjoyed it.
This recipe must be steeped 2 weeks.
I forgot to write the description when I was testing it, and all I remember is that it was pretty good.
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
This is a simple profile that jumped out at me after testing TFA cherry extract. This flavor is definitely on the weaker side. I had to push it up to 5% just to get that light accent I was looking for. I could have gone higher, it
didn't get weird or anything, but I didn't want it in the front. I wanted there to be a kiss of cherry sweetness, and with sharper citrus flavors I needed it at 5%. Once I started to play with different lime layers to hit the notes I was looking for, what I found was limes by themselves can be a bit thin and hard to use as a base. This is where the JF juicy lemon comes in. This gives that lime layers something to set on, and at the same time filling out the mix with a nice juicy vibe. This isn't a sharp lemon like you'd get from something like FA Sicily. It's a sweet, juicy lemon that as a stand alone has a nice mouth feel and solid body for a citrus. At 2% I can steal those characteristics without pushing too much lemon into the recipe. And why not, a little lemon plays perfect with a sharp lime.
Now the lime combo I settled on was from FLV, and while you can get away with subbing out the lime wedge for FA lime cold pressed at 1.5% and still being tasty, the FLV lime at 0.5% is needed. It has a candied lime note that pulls that sharp lime wedge back a little bit and rounds that layer out. At 0.75% that lime wedge is a boss and demands some attention. The sweetener helps push the profile and you'll need a little, but feel free to adjust. I like mine a little sweeter so I use 1% FW.
This is super simple, but it's well balanced and hits what I was looking for. So if you want a cherry kissed juicy lime with a full body...mix this up.
You can S&V this (I do) but it's best after 2 days. It gives the sharp lime time to fall in it's place and that lemon move further back.
I'm not crazy about coolants, but feel free to drop you're preferred additive in here to really hit that profile
This is an attempt at recreating Ricola Dual Action cough drops in vape form.
“Our unique blend of ten natural Swiss alpine herbs, natural menthol, and soothing syrup center, combine to give you fast, safe relief you can trust”
If you haven’t had these cough drops, the sweet honey-lemon outer-shell tastily gives way to an intense mentholated, soothing herbal syrup center.
I am obviously not using ten different herb concentrates here, but I don’t find all of them necessary to impart the flavor of the product here. A few of them listed in the ingredients list of the drops are probably there for their medicinal properties.
Instead, I’m just going to include the ones responsible for pushing that signature Ricola herbal flavor.
Props to u/CheebaSteeba for giving me a good start for my recipe with his Lemon Cough Drop mix.
INW Eucalyptus With Mint:
Eucalyptus is not an included ingredient in Ricola drops. However, it’s scent is still a dead ringer for them, and we know how well a fit this flavor is for vaping when you are under the weather. It’s cooling properties are also a plus, here.
JF Juicy Lemon:
You can’t have lemon cough drops without the lemon, and this one fits the mold perfectly.
FLV Honey Bee:
The perfect honey flavor for this recipe. This is not generic supermarket honey that has had all of its beneficial florals removed. This is more akin to raw honey straight from a hive. This is a very strong flavor so we only want to use a bit of it, but it also needs a few days to mellow out. I actually prefer it without a steep.
One of the ingredients in Ricola’s herbal blend. Imparts the anise flavor to the recipe.
While not the best Elderflower flavor as far as authenticity goes, it works fine enough as a floral for its use in the mix.
A strawberry chewy candy born of an otherworldly realm.
This recipe uses JF Pink Burst as its base. Its the first time I've used the flavor in a mix. Nothing too out of the ordinary in regards to flavors other than that.
JF Pink Burst @ 3.0%: PB is only decent on its own in regards to its strawberry notes. It is definitely useful for the chewy candy texture it brings to the table, though. Adding a small amount of JF Juicy Lemon adds a tiny bit of sweetness/wetness to the candy profile so we don't have to use sweetener. CAP Jelly Candy is a flavor I add to any candy type profile I'm going for, regardless of whether I'm specifically looking for "jelly candy" or not.
JF Sweet Strawberry @ 2.0%: This is a candy recipe, so I didn't want to choose a fresh strawberry flavor. Sweet Strawberry is perfect for this, as its candy-like on its own, and brings its own sweetness into the fold.
TPA Marshmallow @ 1.0%: Using this for more added sweetness and for a bit of body.
gurt" the act of oral sex
This recipe was inspired by the classic "Gogurt". Rich creamy yogurt with mixed berries and lemons. This mix will make you love something creamy and fruity in your mouth
(CAP) Bavarian Cream:
I used Bavarian Cream from Capella instead of TFA is I get a subtle brown sugar note that didnt match this profile. However Capella's Bavarian Cream is very creamy like it's counter part just no brown sugar note.
(JF) Forest Mix:
Ive been loving this flavor its a very vibrant mixed berry profile and works well other flavor profiles. You can use this in bakeries, creams and maybe even drinks such as lemonades. I would not go no higher than 3% in a mix imo.
(CAP) Greek Yogurt:
Oh man, what a nice yogurt with a wonderful texture. Capella has done a wonderful job on this one. It's an amazing creamy flavor that will help in a ice cream, custards and of course yogurts. This this is the main profile in this mix I used this at a higher percentage. However, if your your using this just to give a recipe more texture or complex I would keep this in the 1 - 2.5% range.
(CAP) Juicy Lemon:
Ok, this is a new flavor for me. I get what the name states a juicy lemon zest. (LMAO) This will help give a fruit mix more vibrancy or in this case give your lemon profile more depth to the other lemon.
(CAP) Lemon Meringue Pie v2:
I like the V1 and the V2 for diffrent reasons. In the version 2 I get more of the cream base of pie compared to V1. This is still a lovely concentate nonetheless. Capella's Lemon Meringue with the Juicy Lemon makes a lovely pair in a mix.
A very nice strawberry, this does not taste
just like a candy strawberry nor a natural strawberry. This concentrate taste like RIPE STRAWBERRY AND SWEET STRAWBERRY HAD A BABY xD
(CAP) Super Sweet:
LMAO! Exhales SUGAR!
(INW) Shisha Vanilla:
This Shisha line has been impressing me! This is a very rich vanilla, and is very strong I only used this at 1%
So following on from the success of the DInner Lady Lemon Tart Remix let's go further and remix another one.
Now before I start this time I'm not going to give myself brownie points or am I anyway going to suggest this next recipe is a clone or 1:1 or even a remix but in my opinion it doesn't need to be. It holds its own weight it doesn't need to be compared its fantastic either way. If you want to compare it feel free it might be better it might not,as we all know taste is subjective.
So this is my rice pudding & jam not dinner lady's but my take but we can use the platform to create some hype!!! I mean who doesn't enjoy hype!!
This in my opinion is spot on creamy, thick rice milk with a dollop of sweet raspberry jam that's it, it's tasty and hits the spot no gimmicks or crazy flavour bending just the ingredients in the recipe that take you to the profile without thinking outside the box.
This is straight up rice milk it works really well to mimic that rice pudding flavour. It stands up to its profile well and we will use this as the base of the rice milk but with some additional help we can really push this further making it more creamy and thicker.
FW sweet cream
This acts as a emulsifier for the horchata it really gives the rice milk a more milky profile and adds some great mouthfeel.
Fa yogurt/ Fa meringue
Again just some additional flavours that are really needed to get that rice milk to where it needs to be. Fa yogurt may sound weird here but it really does wonders rice pudding is thick I didn't want to use custard here so after much testing the yogurt really thickened the rice milk almost turning it into a ambrosia kind of rice pudding. Fa meringue just adds a little more milk and sweetness.
Such an amazing flavour that misses out somewhat due to inw and tfa but I tried both of them and neither hit the spot you either needed a shit ton to pull that profile through or the other just over powered. Fa raspberry is spot on at 1% it sits nicely at the back where I wanted it and I found its flavour on par as a more jammy raspberry especially with the help of the next two flavours.
Fa black currant/ JF juicy lemon
These two flavours do the magic where the jam is concerned they totally transform the raspberry flavour and turn it jammy. If you haven't tried fa black currant then your missing out it does great things to darker fruits. The jf juicy lemon again sits on top of the berries and it's candy aspect switches up the fruits to that jam level alongside adding additional sweetness.
Fa cinnamon Ceylon
Just a little here to add some accent to the rice pudding kind of acts like that burnt topping you get on the pudding and also adds some more interest to the pudding. You can leave this out if cinnamon isn't your thing but it really isn't noticeable but it does add a little cheeky twist.
So there you go rice pudding and jam my way but dinner lady I salute you for making me fuck with your profiles!! Thank you......

If you don't fancy mixing from scratch
Since everybody seems to be obsessed, with fake rubber penises, I thought I'd help you guys out with some lubricant.😂😂😂
So all kidding aside this a classic fruit combination. Strawberry, apple, and watermelon, all play well together. It's been a blast, to see all the different variations of this recipe. And although I'm late to the game I thought I would try my hand at it.
LA lemonade along with JF juicy lemon combined to give for my lemonade base.
LA lemonade- hands-down the best lemonade flavoring I have found to date.
JF juicy lemon- is a great accent for the lemon-aid, while providing a boost to the lemon, it also added a candy lemon flavor to the mix
LA watermelon, FA stark apple, and TFA strawberry ripe where my choice for the fake rubber penis part of this recipe.🤤🤤🤤
LA watermelon- I chose because it's the only watermelon flavoring I have.😎😎😎 Lorena's watermelon a great watermelon flavor and I've never had a need to buy another.
Flavour art stark Apple- I feel that this is an underused apple flavoring. Delicious with a slightly sharp note, it really works well in this recipe. But I have toyed around with other Apple flavorings, and Fuji works if you don't have it.
TFA strawberry ripe- so I chose Strawberry ripe for a few reasons. first it's delicious works well in this recipe, and ethyl maltol in the flavoring really helps soften the watermelon and lemonade.
This is a nice, natural, sweet lemon flavor. It's not necessarily tart, or bitter, or acidic; just a straight up sweet lemon flavor. It's almost reminiscent of those lemon drop candies, but less artificial tasting. I can see this working very well in bakeries, candies, and beverage flavors. The first place my palate wants to take this is like a lemon meringue pie. I've tried this at 1%, 3%, and 5%. 3% seems to be the cap, 1% was a little too weak, and 5% I didn't get anything extra out of it than I did at 3%. This flavoring oughtn't need to steep as it's a fruit, seems to be low in acids, and has an inherent sweetness about it.
