For Week 7 - Feeling Heroic? The Year of Mixing Challenge:
As we grew up, we grew to love to hate Snape. He always seemed to do everything he could to stifle Harry, get in his way, embarrass him, or humiliate hit. He seemed to be one of the coldest people in the Magical Universe. Later in the series our suspicions were correct!!!! Snape is now working with Voldemort again! He sat idly by as Charity was killed during the Meeting at Malfoy Manor. How is this man a hero?! Well, as we find out in the last moments of his life, his whole reason for being; to keep Harry alive until the end. He was asked to Protect Harry, guide him, help him along, all while acting as if he hated him. He was asked by Dumbledore to play 007 with the Dark Lord. He played his part until the end as one of the most critical pieces in the chess game.
What did Snape love more than anything? Lily Potter. He fell in love with her as a child and that love only grew stronger with time. In his own way, he loved Harry, though he hated him at the same time. He loved him because he reminded him of Lily, and hated him for the same reason, as well as being reminded of James. So what does Snape eat when he breaks down and wants to remember Lily? He eats an Indian (Lily's favorite food) sweet yogurt dessert called Shrikhand. It is a thick, yet creamy yogurt dessert dressed with saffron, pistachio, and spiced with cardamom.
Dumbledore: "After all this time?"
Pistachio and Lime were made for each other. Here's a easy recipe to prove it. Shake well and steep 24 hours.
And once you fall in love with the simple combination of pistachios and limes, here's a link that might inspire you to create something more complex with them.
I enjoyed the idea of a 1-2-3 recipe ID10T did with his cranberry sprite recipe. Simple and easy so I made one of my own. This is my 2nd 1 2 3 recipe and they are nice and easy to mix and usually pretty tasty so maybe we can get a trend going.
I recieved some vape train flavors and I really enjoy the pudding base. It works really well with pistachio. I used TFA for the artificial pistachio note and added in the FLV for an authentic notes. Nice easy and tasty mix.
Pistachio pudding fo yo azz.
Oh, pistachio. It's astonishing to me how much this flavor works in vape form. Specifically TFA's variation. It does a whole bunch of different things in a mix. Its sweet, kinda buttery, perfectly nutty, but can be rather thin. It needs help but not too much, depending on what you're going for.
I know, I know...it's also been an extremely played out flavor. Used time and time again but there obviously is a reason for it. The one nut that can be both sweet and rather savory, at least in the nuttier sense of the word. TFA's version cleary went for the former, but they did a really good job emulating it. A friend of mine who loves my other pistachio recipe Dillinger's Dairy, wanted something similar minus the tobacco aspect. I didn't want to just take out that part and hand him the same thing, so instead we decided on a pudding. Anyways without further rambling, for your vaping pleasure, is that concoction.
TFA Pistachio - This was going to be the top note no matter what. You're basically already at the pistachio pudding level when you use this flavor. I tried to add in other pistachio flavors and even use other ones to get a better level of realism but it wasn't necessary. Here, you have all the sweet 'stachio elements you need so I only needed to work on the pudding base.
FA Oba Oba - Actually, this was added to give that pistachio an even deeper candied element and boy does it do that. I never realized how much I liked this flavor when using it for that very reason. It also seems to help with the sweet pudding-like mouthfeel. Try to add this into any hard candy recipes or anything with like a candy shell or a sugary glaze. It has that very same sweet flavor. Some say it's likened to a marshmallow flavor but that's really only if you take it any higher.
TPA Vanilla Swirl - This here is one piece of my pudding base. Simple, yet elegant. Vanilla Swirl is the perfect flavor for a cream dessert. It's not too heavy, very sweet, and the vanilla is not too dark nor overpowering. It stays in its place as a base note which was exactly what I wanted.
FA Fresh Cream - A nice light dairy cream to punch up the...well dairy aspect of a pudding. The nice thing about this flavor is it blankets anything in a smooth, subtle mouthfeel without adding way too much flavor to anything. It does have its own tiny bit of sweetness but its hardly noticeable with other sweeter flavors.
CAP Super Sweet - This is actually not optional. At least, I wouldn't try it without it. This is pushing the candied side of the pistachio flavor forward and making the creams into a real commercial pudding. Without it, you can't really shake and vape until everything steeps together. If you had to replace it, I guess I would use (maybe) 1.5% Oba Oba instead of 1% and make sure you steeped it for the full 4-5 days.
FLV Butterscotch - Ah, the finishing touch. I am telling you, any sort of pistachio dessert will be pumped up to 11 if you add even a small touch of any caramel or butterscotch. This particular one is perfectly smooth and ties in with the pudding. There isn't an overpowering butterscotch flavor to it either. It's there but it simply sat with the pistachio sweetness and connected itself and the pudding together as one. The DAAP in this flavor is just a bonus ;-)
P.S. If you don't have Butterscotch, try to use FLV Caramel but you're missing out.
So, put this away for a few days and enjoy(5 days at best). Keep on mixin' on! Hit me up on DIYorDIE's discord if you have any questions!
Started working on a clone for creme de la creme and while making a few mixes I decided to try and sub out for a different nut. The pistachio works so well with the creams and caramel. Dropped the coffee note as that didn't play as well with the pistachio, but this is a rich, slightly nutty caramel cream that is delicious after a week steep.
This has been one of m ADV's for awhile. I wanted to try something a little different with the sweet rice. Pistachio came to mind from an Asian influence and these flavors just work really nice together. Even with vanilla custard in the mix the FE Sweet Rice still hangs in there as the top note. This has a nice pistachio flavor that lingers through the vape with a creamy vanilla finish. I can't put it down it is addicting and just works.
