Rice Pudding with Cinnamon
This took me a long time and has been my current white whale. I've tried a lot of different flavorings and combinations and have finally settled on what will be my final version of this recipe. I'm not fully convinced its 100% accurate but I think I've come as close as I can to realizing the pudding in rice pudding. Nailing the rice itself would have been very hard as it is very much a texture and not so much a flavor but nonetheless here it finally is. Puddin'
CAP Horchata: I tried three different Horchata flavorings in trying to find what works and for me TFA Horchata Smooth was way to overpowering with the cinnamon. CAP Horchata is a good flavor to use since it has the rice milk note that I need to convey rice pudding. This one is more of the milk and less of the rice but it works here in conjunction with FW Horchata
FW Horchata: This Horchata flavoring to me has a bit more of that rice itself which I found weird but combining it with CAP Horchata gives me the base to work with for rice pudding.
CAP Vanilla Custard v1: I needed something to help make this more of a heavier vape and CAP Vanilla Custard does just that while adding in good creaminess and vanilla that I associate with Rice Pudding
INW Shisha Vanilla: By far my favorite Vanilla flavoring and here it helps boost the vanilla in the recipe.
JF Bavarian Cream: I wanted some more creaminess and JF Bavarian Cream is a really good flavor to use to help meld all the creams together as well as add just a bit more body
FA Meringue: I wanted to try to add some sweetness to this recipe and also add a bit of a light cream on top and this helps with that
CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream: Like in Don't Panic, I love the combo of CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream and FA Meringue as they really work well together so this helps add to that light cream.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: I wanted some cinnamon in this recipe and TFA Horchata Smooth was just not doing it for me in adding the cinnamon. I admit I was hesistant to use CDS since the first BB competition but have been using it a bit more lately. This helps give a cinnamon flavor and also helps boost a bit of grain which helps convey the Rice Pudding profile.
TFA Toasted Marshmallow: This is here to add some more sweetness and helps meld the creams further together as this is a pretty heavy cream based recipe.
TFA Sweetener: I know. I am usually not a fan adding in sweetener into my recipes. Maybe it's pride or maybe its something else. Maybe the hype juice with 5% sweetener has made me weary of sweetener in general but this recipe without it just wasn't sweet enough. It just wasn't giving me that pudding sweetness that I know and love. At first I tried 1% and it was TOO sweet. But at 0.5% it gives the recipe just enough sweetness to emulate pudding without stealing the spotlight from the recipe itself.
With everything in this, I recommend a two week steep. Its pretty tasty after a week though if you are impatient like me :D. I mix mine at 80vg/20pg but feel free to let me know if you mix it at any other ratio and how it comes out. I would love to hear feedback since this has been in the works for at least like four months now which is longer than any other recipe I've worked on. <3 <3 <3
Lemon Meringue Pie with Blackberry.
Meringue inhale followed with lemon and then blackberry. Graham Cracker comes through on the backend lending the heaviness that contrasts on the airy light start. I really like how this vapes as it goes from light to heavy throughout the inhale and exhale going from the meringue to the lemon to the graham cracker, much like eating Lemon Meringue Pie.
CAP Lemon Meringue Pie: Man I love this flavoring for that Lemon Meringue. While it's not enough on its own for me, it's a perfect base to start building.
FA Meringue: I know it might be a reoccurring thing for FA Meringue to be such a staple in a lot of my recipes but this flavoring is just that good for what I want it to do. In this case it helps adds a bit sweetness and light airiness that I want from Meringue on the top of a Lemon Meringue Pie.
CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream: This flavoring man! It is a great light cream that helps the Meringue shine. I've been enjoying this FA Meringue and CAP VWC combo a lot lately.
TFA Blackberry: I wanted to distinguish this Lemon Meringue Pie from any other and I settled on Blackberry adding to the Lemon. TFA Blackberry is a bit sweet and tart but is very potent. No more than 1% or it really gets overbearing. But for me, it is the perfect flavoring when I want to add a Blackberry note to a recipe.
TFA Pear: I originally wanted to do this with FA Pear but found out I actually don't have any but you can sub it in because its main job in the recipe is to help out the Blackberry just a bit more to mix it with the Lemon better. I found 1% too much for this as the Pear started to override but at half a percent it sits back far enough to lend its help with out stealing the spotlight.
CAP Lemon Sicily: I use this at 0.5% just to help boost the lemon and the blackberry a bit more.
TFA Graham Cracker Clear: What's a lemon meringue pie without a nice graham cracker crust? This flavoring speaks for itself but it also does help add a heaviness that is missing and finishes off the vape nicely. Without it this would be too airy and light and would miss that bottom note that TFA GCC adds in.
I mix all my recipes at 80vg/20pg but feel free to do whatever ratio works for you and feel free to let me know how it works out. <3 <3 <3
The cinnamon is pretty light, probably needs a drop of Rich Cinnamon in there to really bring it to life. This is still a huge WIP. It's supposed to be a cream cheese filled Churro. The TPA Butter was to add a bit of grease to the Churro, brown sugar to smooth out rough edges and add some sweetness along with the meringue. The French vanilla to add some creaminess to the cream cheese icing, and of course funnel cake and CDS are the churro. I would rather not bump up CDS, but I like where it's at for now, but will still adjust it to taste. It's pretty tasty but nowhere near completed. I still need a deep friedness to it and it's been hard to find it.

This is an alternate take on the massively popular Bronuts recipe with the Bavarian Cream. I decided to give Capella's yellow cake a try as I'm trying to avoid fructose, sugar syrup, and other things of that nature. My first batch was 1% yellow cake and it didn't seem strong enough. Bumped it up to 2% and it was much better. IMO, Capellas yellow cake needs a steep so give this one about 2 weeks. At first it tastes super artificial but mellows out long term.
Thanks once again to Wayne for providing this recipe.
When deciding on a milkshake flavor, I knew I really only had one choice. Arby's Jamocha Shake. Why? Because I wanted something different. I wanted something I myself would really enjoy. And if I go to Arby's, I always get Jamocha. It is light and cool and sweet, and it almost never fails to make me wish I had gotten a bigger size. Now to Create an accurate shake, you need the right base. I could go with one of probably 6 or 7 choices for the creamy milky base. But with the need for a quick steep and not a lot of room in the recipe for helpers, Capella's Sweet Cream was the clear winner. I went a little higher with the percentage so that it would be present right away. But even though it is a slightly heavier cream, I did want to bring in a component that would fill it out. That is where Flavor West's Creamy Hazelnut comes in. At slightly higher percentages, the hazelnut really comes through, and I did not want to do that. Kept at this low percentage, it actually accomplishes two purposes. It acts as a milk, to fill out the sweet cream, but then the slightly nutty undertones create a bridge for the next flavor to come in...The Coffee. Flavour Art's Up is perfect for this shake, because it is a coffee that is already sweetened, and has this element to it that is just slightly creamy. Not obviously so, but just sweet and creamy enough for it to be a perfect match for this recipe. Because you can't have mocha without chocolate, that is where Flavor Apprentice's double chocolate clear comes in. It blends with the other components and offers that element necessary to accomplish what I was going for. Once we had the flavor married together and happy, there was that singular last thing I needed. Cold. For my one allowable enhancer, I chose Flavor Apprentice's Koolada 10% PG. At just under 1%, it gives you the chill in your mouth and throat to let you know you have a milkshake, without an overwhelming blast of freeze that causes an ice cream headache. Again, I kept all the percentages pretty low, because if you have ever had a Jamocha shake yourself, you know it is a very lightly flavored milkshake, and for accuracy's sake, I needed to remain true to the real thing. While a shake and vape, this recipe benefits greatly from an overnight steep. Enjoy!
This is a butter pecan and vanilla bean milk shake. I get this by using flavor west butter pecan as my butter pecan ice cream part of my mix I do this at 4% at this amount I feel it doesn't overpower the creams and works well. I use Capella vanilla bean ice cream for none other than my vanilla bean ice cream part of my ingredients and also I find it to work better in shake and vape situations than its counter part. I use vanilla bean ice cream at 2.5% because it works good at tgis percentage. I then use Vienna cream to basically pull all my ingredients together not only does it really help the vanilla bean ice cream become a full bodied ice cream but it does the same thing to the butter pecan flavor it also helps fill out the malted milk flavor. The last of my four flavor's is malted milk by tfa tgis gives the recipe it's milky part of the milk shake I accomplish this with only 1% of malted milk because first of all I don't use muck milk in my milk shakes and further more this flavor puts off a harsh after taste I feel at a higher percentage. I then used ethyl maltol to sweeten up my creams and help calm down the Butter pecan without drying it out.
If you ordered a mint milkshake and someone accidentally added a scoop of banana ice cream to it by mistake you would think you would be pretty pissed right? Wrong! Well at first you might...until you tasted this delicious happy accident. This combination is so delightful it will make you question every flavor you thought didn't go together. This milkshake will most definitely bring all the boys to the yard. Enjoy this unusual treat!
TFA Banana Cream - This flavor makes the perfect banana ice cream to act as an accent or backnote to this mix.You can tell there is banana in your milkshake but it doesn't get in the way of that amazing mint..It is mellow and very creamy and adds to the authenticity of the milkshake.
FA Cream Fresh - I used this flavor to help boost the creams and give the mix a more milky mouth-feel and flavor.
FW Creme de Menthe - This is the perfect mint flavor for this mix. It has a soft nuanced creaminess to the mint that just works so well as a milkshake. The slight vanilla notes further add to the accuracy of this milkshake along with the cooling sensation it provides that pushes this mix over the edge into milkshake land. Creme de Menthe also provides most of the sweetness for this recipe and makes it so darn enjoyable to vape.
CAP French Vanilla - Here we have more vanilla to add to the milkshake, but this flavor does more than just add some vanilla to the mix. It bridges the gap between the starkly different flavors of banana and the mint. So instead of having a scoop of banana ice cream in your mint shake, you have an evenly blended together concoction.
A S&V dark chocolate and raspberry milkshake. With valentines day coming up, this is a darker play on a sweetheart shake. The original is a bit of a sugar bomb, especially with the whipped cream on top. I wanted to really push that dark chocolate to front, and bring in a fruit syrup that was tarter and darker than the original cherry.
CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream- The ice cream base for the milkshake. I needed some fairly rich ice cream, both to hit the profile and to help carry the drier FA Cocoa. I've went with CAP because TFA's VBIC has that black pepper note and some dryness that needs to steep out. 3% was enough to get a fuller, richer ice cream flavor without getting too dense.
TFA Bavarian Cream- Thicker cream notes, heavy body, and most importantly works as a S&V. At 2%, without steeping, that nutty off-flavor works as a stand-in for the malty notes you'd expect from a milkshake. The volume and sweetness gives you some of what you'd get from using a separate marshmallow concentrate or a whipped cream to top the shake.
FA Cocoa- Dark cocoa powder that works as a S&V. 1.25% gives a punch of dark chocolate. The richness of the milkshake base fills the cocoa out and works to counteract any of the chalky texture you get can get from a drier chocolate concentrate.
FW Razzleberry- Bright, syrupy, raspberry with just a bit of darker blackberry flavor. Almost a "maraschino" raspberry flavor, Not floral, so works well without a steep. Stands in for a raspberry syrup added into the milkshake before blending.
And that's it. My S&V milkshake. Like all the other rounds, the true challenge here is in the restrictions. I felt like the S&V restriction was the biggest design challenge, although keeping a full milkshake flavor down to 4 concentrates also presents some issues. It was all about watching out for those unsteeped off-notes from dairy concentrates, while trying to build that milkshake base as simply as possible so I had some space to create an engaging flavor.
I mixed at 70% VG / 30% PG, with 1.5mg nic, but follow your heart. Works fine at 60/40.

Ahoy, buckos! Splice the mainbrace! Why in th' name 'o Posideon would ye blend a milkshake wit' landlubbin moo juice when ye could mix it wit' delicious coconut milk? 'N what kind 'o scurvy corsair would ye be if ye didn' load 'er up wit' rum?
