Profile: Creamy vanilla rice pudding with a hint of cardamom
Quote @Zany: "Unlike Traditional Chinese Medicine - This will actually make you erect!"
We wanted to make a delicious rice pudding with hints of spices and vanilla without actually making it too thick and disgusting.
@Zany aka. Dico and I sat down and looked over which flavors we had that would fit such a profile.
The very first version contained VT Thai Sticky Rice, FM Pistachio, VT Yoghurt Drink, FLV Vanilla Pudding and TFA Whipped Cream.
To begin with, we only had VT Thai Sticky Rice on the table for the rice base, but we kinda figured out that it wasn’t enough rice so we introduced FE Sweet Rice to the mix.
At some point, we also had FM Pistachio in the mix, but the more we huffed and puffed, the more we kinda figured that it didn’t really quite fit in for what we were going for.
Pretty early in, it was decided that FA Cardamom would maybe be an awesome addition, so it was added. It somehow didn’t clash very well with VT Yoghurt drink, which also were just kinda weird, so we scrapped VT Yoghurt Drink early on.
Final addition to the line-up was FLV Sweet Coconut and it all just fell into place.
Concerning the taste of this mix, it’s not overly strong on the rice taste as VT Thai Sticky Rice comes with a hint of a spice note. It’s there to add some depth in the mix.
In combination with some notes of vanilla, coconut, a little cream to bind it all together and a wonderful warm and round taste of cardamom as a finisher, it’s a twirl of flavors that dances in your gob.
Please do let it sit for about 5 days to let it all blend in nicely together.

This was my mission and I chose to accept it.
As a kid my mom used to make me rose milk all the time. Its a great little Indian version of Nesquik syrup. I've really enjoyed my Kheer recipe, but I've also really enjoyed my smoothie recipes which are basically lassi's. So I decided to go all pen pineapple apple pen and UNGH Rose Kheer Lassi. This is basically my Indian version of bubble tea, don't @ me.
For those that do not know kheer is an Indian dessert that is a rice pudding. Generally consisting of rice, milk, cardamom, almond and pistachio. I decided to use the first 3 ingredients. My go to for rice was always FE Sweet Rice, but I decided to switch it up and give the VT Thai Sticky Rice a shot. I gives you a nice sweet cooked rice flavor for the kheer base. The cardamom was easy, its always FA Cardamom. Next up we need the milk this is where the VT Peach Yoghurt comes into play. I don't get much peach from it at all and I get no yoghurt, but what I do get is a rose like flavor with some nice milky creaminess. When told @Zany I was combining VT Peach Yoghurt with Thai Sticky Rice he called me a monster, so that's how I knew I was on the right track for my mission. I added the VT Glazed strawberries for some added pink syrupiness, but its not strong enough to turn the rose flavor into a strawberry. The FLV cream rounds the cream base out. I wanted to add a touch of tart which is where the MB Greek Yogurt comes into play, its not quite as tart as I want it, but I'll get there.
I was watching the great british baking show and one of the contestants made an Indian barfi. The main ingredients of plain barfis include condensed milk and sugar A few of the famous varieties of barfi include besan barfi (made with gram flour), kaaju barfi (made with cashews), pista barfi (made with ground pistachios), and sing barfi (made with peanuts).
The ingredients are cooked in a vessel until the mixture solidifies.
Based on this desert I came up the combination of rose and pistachio, which is fairly popular pairing.
On the inhale you get a sweet milky creamy coconut note that transitions to a nutty light rose finish . It is unique and really lovely. tested on a reload RDA at 65 watts on a .16 alien coil
The combination of oak milk and condensed milk is just lovley. Iit is full creamy sweet and slightly nutty and almost woody.
Pistachio note is there at the middle and exhale and is made more noticeable by the oak note of the oak milk
The coconut and Thai rice seem to fill in the middle nicely here and just adds some wonder full fullness and body to the profile with out distracting form the pistachio and rose profile to much
This is fairly sweet on its own so does not really need sweetner - although touch of cap super sweet seem to get the rose to sit a bit more on top
