Just a moment. Five measures of Vanilla Custard, one and half measures of French Vanilla II, three measures of Lemon Lime. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?
Shaken not stirred is a refreshing custard with lime. That’s not the in the middle of your face custard but one with the right finesse as well as a good presence.
For the custard I wanted a bright not eggy but dense custard base. CAP Vanilla Custard and TPA French Vanilla II form this base which is hold together nicely with the Ethyl Maltol. The hint of the Ethyl Vanillin gives it just the extra edge to provide some additional subtlety.
The CAP Lemon Lime brings the Lime and extra sweetness to the mix. At 3% it could not fully stand the custard, so it needed a little help from CAP Super Sweet instead of bringing the percentage up. Additional Key Lime did not help holding the French Vanilla II under control which did initially not work to well together with the Lemon Lime. After many variations I tried TPA Key Lime Pie and it helped to close the gap from to the Lemon Lime and it hold the French Vanilla in place where it should stay. Also here a little goes a long way.
I am a long steeper when it comes to my mixes and personally do double the steeping time I recommend, so sometimes you have to give the mix some extra time since this is not an exact science.
for the developed challange, no steep testing done this is version 1 and im just now mixing this haha but pretty confident may need some adjustments.
Goin for a key lime pie with good mouthfeel
Okay SNV! DEF a key lime pie but made with a fruit loop crust!!! Def needs a chill down on the harsh citrus tones....will reevaluate tomorrow and the next day but my only current thought on any adjustments is mayyybe upping key lime to 3.5% just a smidgent more. But i wanna see how the creams come out first and how the harshness tones down.
This is a good start!!
**V2 i bumped key lime to 3.5 and dropped fruit circles to 3.5 for more balance.
This is my recipe tackling Fruit Loops in Milk. Took quite some time to develop, but here is the latest and most refined recipe.
// Key Lime Pie //
This is one of my favourite recipes since I started mixing. The profile is simple and the flavors well balanced (from my point of view) and the first time I tried this version had the same feeling you get from a strawberry milk or cheesecake, that refreshing sensation of something well balanced, with a very distinctive flavor that doesn't require too much thinking, just vaping and enjoying.
The combination of Sugar Cookie and Graham Cracker Clear creates a buttery textured base, not too fluffy or flaky thanks to the "pie" in the Lemon Meringue and the Key Lime Pie, which adds the kind of bakery you find in a FA Apple Pie (for reference). The star of the recipe is the mix of the two Key Lime and the Lemon Meringue, with a touch of Strawberry Ripe to bring those flavors forward and the NY Cheesecake to give body and bond all together. Finally, the topping is that sugary cream feeling from the mix of Lemon Meringue and Marshmallow.
I hope you enjoy it and feel free to play with it and give your most honest opinion and suggestions!!
