SOME PINK CLOUDS FOR Y'ALL!
After trying out @eyemakepizza 's Lemon Basil Ice Cream, I got inspired to do a bit of a different ice cream myself. I knew I wanted to make something with FLV Rose Essence and FLV Lychee. Pairing them with raspberry felt compelling, and once I tried it, it didn't dissapoint. I felt that I wanted to have the raspberry "just there", to bring that sweet yummyness without taking over. The rose is definitley the star here, even if the flavor in itself is pretty light, it makes the recipe very smooth. The lychee can easily get funky if you use it too high, but here I think it pairs great with the raspberry to make it more of a nondescript berry sweetness, while also adding a body to it, something that the rose is lacking.
I can see how this recipe might frighten some people when they see all the floral flavors, but honestly, if you like berries and cream kind of vapes, you'll like this. Rose Essence is very light and when I vape this it feels like I'm puffing on pink clouds.
Flavor notes: LB Vanilla Ice Cream is pretty much the gold standard lately when you're making an ice cream (imo). Great mouthfeel that you want an ice cream to have, and a perfect balance between the sweet and eggy notes. 3% felt perfect for this, considering the other ingredients that are a bit on the lighter side. TFA Vanilla Swirl is just a perfect match for LB VIC, since it's light on the body but has an amazing sweetness and vanilla note to it. There's a good reason why these two flavors are used so much together, they're just a match made in heaven. CAP Hibiscus is a very versatile flavor, and is perfect to use as sweetener for berries & florals. It's not used for flavor here, but rather to add some extra sweetness, while acting as bridge between the creams and the florals. Thanks to @apexified for this suggestion! INW Raspberry is hands down my favourite raspberry flavor, and one of the best berry flavors out there. It can be a bully and it can become wierd if used too high. At 0.5% it is slightly muted by the vanilla swirl, and just adds a touch of that amazing raspberry flavor that pairs extremely well with both the lychee and rose. FLV Lychee is very sweet, has a great body to it, and also some funky floral notes that I just love. This can be hard to work with, if you use it higher it will become too funky, but here at 0.5% it adds a nice sweet body, while acting as a bridge between the sweet raspberry and light floral rose. FLV Rose Essence .. it feels wierd to say that the rose is the star here, but it is. It's such a "light" flavor with a nonexistant body, but with the ice cream base, and the sweet berry/lychee body it adds that final touch to it, a very pleasant "calm" and fresh feel to the mix.
