A classic Parisian treat with a flowery tropical twist; macarons infused with flavor from the blossoms of a mango tree.
FA Almond 2%, FA Meringue 2%, CAP Sugar Cookie 2% - Simple and to the point, this is a macaron, a sweet meringue drop cookie made with egg whites, icing sugar, and ground almond. They're often infused with flavors and color, and made into a light, delicate cookie sandwich with a cream filling that might or might not also be flavored and colored. FA Almond gives a clear, clean almond flavor and FA Meringue has both the airy baked egg white and powered sugar thing going on. CAP Sugar Cookie stays sweet, texturizes (makes whole almonds ground), and further bakes these goodies. When I think about what a macaron tastes like, these three concentrates together just seem insanely obvious. AP-laden bakery ingredients are just too heavy for such light and airy cookies. Try this simple 2/2/2 macaron base with your preferred macaron flavors, but take care not to do so with a heavy hand. These treats are delicate and the flavoring should be subtle yet ingratiating.
TFA Honeysuckle 4%, FLV Mango 1.5% - So the recipe name and that little italicized description are basically bullshit. I have no freaking clue whether Honeysuckle + Mango tastes like a mango blossom. I did google to make sure mango blossoms were actually edible and not poisonous or something, but I've never tasted one. What I do know is that these two concentrates are wonderful together.
FLV Cream 1% - There's your cream filling. This stuff is my Frank's Red Hot lately. If you have to sub something, try 1.5 to 2% CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, which will shorten the steep time, or TFA Whipped Cream 2%, which will stretch it to two weeks. Neither of those will be quite the same, but should still be tasty.
A slightly different version (1% less Honeysuckle) of this debuted at https://www.reddit.com/r/mixersclub/ and I very much appreciate the Club's critiques. If you're looking for some direction in your mixing or just want someone to taste your recipes, check it out.
If you ordered a banana milkshake and someone accidentally added a scoop of mint ice cream to it by mistake you would think you would be pretty pissed, right? I know I would. But you know what they could throw in there that no one could get angry about? Chocolate!
Think vanilla milkshake with chocolate-covered bananas blended into it. Mmmm. Chocolate. A girl's best friend and the most phallic of fruits make an orgasmic combination in this recipe made only from ingredients in the April 2017 Awesome Box.
TFA Banana Cream - This creamy banana is the heart of this banana milkshake, but is also easily substitutable and augmentable. Go bananas with it. Do you prefer LA's version or find that the two of them are better together than either alone? Substitute 4% LA Banana Cream for the 4.5% TFA Banana Cream or use 2.5% TFA and 2% LA. I have reason to believe the DIYFS Banana Cream would also work, but you're on your own for a % on that one. Do you crave a bigger, bolder banana? Add 0.75% HS Banana or 1.25% FA Banana. Want less Runty, more natural-tasting monkey food? Add the HS or FA and drop Banana Cream to 3.5%.
FA Cream Fresh/CAP French Vanilla - Milkshake cream base straight-up stolen from @mlNikon's "Here Come The Boys" for this... homage? Parody? Call it what you like, it works. If you like your shakes like you like your PAWGs, extra thick, supplement this with 2% TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream or for pepper tasters and other weirdoes, the same amount of CAP VBIC, and eat it with a spoon. Want to be able to slurp your shake through a straw without blowing an o-ring? Leave it be. It's good.
FLV Milk Chocolate - What an attention whore this Hershey's syrup flavor turns out to be! It might as well be practicing deep throating on longnecks at the bar. While it tastes fine for what it is up to 1% without getting weird, I had to back it down in version after version all the way down to 0.08% to keep it from steamrolling over everything else. If you're working on a recipe and you want Hershey's chocolate syrup to be a secondary note rather than the main flavor, allow me to suggest making a dilution or seriously stepping up your "half-drop by barely squeezing and then gently rubbing the nipple on the rim of the bottle" game.
FLV Sweet Coconut - There are only a few recipes that can't be improved by adding 0.25% Sweet Coconut. This isn't one of them. Here, it helps FLV Milk Chocolate taste less like Hershey's syrup and more like Magic Shell chocolate. Which, by the way, is something you can make at home by combining chopped milk chocolate and coconut "it's not just for lube anymore" oil and zapping it in the microwave.

Name changed from the less tactful A.S.S. Roll (short for Awesome Strawberry Swiss Roll), it's not Tootsie Roll as in the chocolatesque candy, but TOOTSEE as in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs7f3ssuEjA
It's also a number of concentrates working in harmony together to get the job done. Turning a candy strawberry into more of a dark sweet strawberry jam? Butterscotch Ripple and Hazelnut got you, fam. Turning Sugar Cookie into a creamy, soft, and very buttery sponge cake? Biscuit, Butter, and Meringue are all over it. Bon appétit, y'all, and keep rollin' that derriere!
To me, Manly Strap-On by @Apexified was the best strap-on to date (Strap-On plus mango) (until this one, of course), but Suckle my Strap-On by @Havohej was awesome, too (Strap-On plus Honeysuckle). ¿Porqué no los dos, señoritas? Putting the two together gives the best of both recipes. What you get is a sweet, syrupy, tropical fruit cup with a variety of fruit notes that play with your palate in different ways as you vape it. You can shake and vape it, but if you give it a couple of days, the TFA Honeysuckle changes the mouthfeel a bit so it feels almost like there's a drop of cream in your fruit cup.
Got another idea for adding a little thing or two to the original Strawberry-Apple-Watermelon? (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/6487). Or a different combination of strawberry, apple, and watermelon flavors? Go for it! Show me your Strap-On. My body is ready.
If you've ever wondered what sweet baby Jesus tasted when he breastfed, this is the recipe for you. A bright, clean, dragon-berry milk, kind of like a Creamsaver that doesn't exist but definitely should. Inspired by God Milk by @SkiddlzNinja and my own Mother of Dragons' Milk recipes, but better than either of those after a one-week steep.
Honeysuckle Ice Cream based on this recipe: http://theviewfromgreatisland.com/honeysuckle-ice-cream/
TLDR for that link: pick fresh honeysuckle blossoms and steep them overnight in milk, heavy cream, and sugar. Strain out the flowers, add real vanilla bean, and run the mix through an ice cream machine.
TFA Honeysuckle infuses the cream flavors with a delicate floral perfume. It’s carefully balanced at 3% to work as a shake-and-vape recipe here. Any higher would be overdoing it – we want the just the sillage of this summery fragrance, nature’s magnet for birds and bees, left behind after steeping in the ice cream base. Failing to strain out the flowers themselves would spoil this elegant dessert.
INW Shisha Vanilla brings a sweet, creamy vanilla, very reminiscent of a homemade, non-custard vanilla ice cream. This could almost be a two-ingredient recipe with just these two flavors, but some additional creams pick up where Shisha Vanilla leaves off.
TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is a tricky but essential addition. It’s tricky because it has something we don’t want, those custard notes, as this is an egg-free, AKA Philadelphia-style or American-style ice cream. Used low enough with these other ingredients, eggs can be avoided while still providing what we do want – that dense body and luxurious mouthfeel of churned heavy cream. that Shisha Vanilla doesn’t have enough of, and a more robust, truly vanilla bean flavor as opposed to Shisha Vanilla’s flavor that sits somewhere between extract and bean.
FLV Cream adds more neutral creamy body to the mix and binds and blends the honeysuckle, vanilla, and creams together. It enhances the heavy milk taste of Cream Fresh as well, but alone, it lacks enough dairy flavor to complete the milk and cream mix used to make this ice cream.
FA Cream Fresh brings the milk, but too much of it seems to react poorly to Honeysuckle in souring way, as if the ice cream had been made with milk that was a day or two past its sell-by date. To complete this ode to longing, Cream Fresh and FLV Cream need each other.
And why "Longing?" Because I miss someone who isn't mine to miss, dream about someone who isn't mine to dream about, and love someone who is no longer mine to love. Moving on with anyone else is hard when they kiss me and I'm afraid all they taste is her name on my lips. Of all the sensual pleasures we once shared, it is her unique flavor I still thirst for most of all. The closest thing I've found to the taste of her body at the height of her bliss, her amrita, is Honeysuckle Ice Cream.
This recipe has not been entered in a contest: DOD WORLD MIXERS II Round 4
Thought about submitting this as my final entry into the DoD World Mixer's Comp because I heard those pervs were into this sort of thing. Decided against it because it's in poor taste, despite being a tasty recipe. Mix it up for a refreshing, interesting fruit medley.
Spiny: INW Cactus. If you're a Phucker Phan, you can turn up the Cactus to 0.5%. Maybe even higher. But if you do that, I recommend at least an overnight steep.
Dragon: TFA Dragonfruit. Tastes like what dragonfruit would taste like if dragonfruit tasted like the essence of white gummy bears.
Strawberry-Apple-Watermelon: All FA. I should change my name to HiC and charge for this stuff.
Coconut Rum Milkshake
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?
CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream be th' meat 'n potatoes, ye sea rations 'o sorts, 'o 'tis milkshake. Avast! Don't be ye substitutin TFA VBIC in here; 'tis too buttery fer 'tis shake made fer pepper tasters, CAP's version has a wee bit more milkiness.
FW Bavarian Cream be sweet, rich, heavy, 'n dense, but not so dense dat ye can't be slurpin it through a straw. And hoist the mainsail, to be sure! It makes th' difference betwixt ice cream 'n milkshake har.
FA Jamaican Special: Aaarrrgh, maties! Rum! Right up thar wit' rapin' 'n pilliagin' on a pirate's priority list. 'Tis one's got some extra dark brown sugar, almost molasses, aspect t' it, which might be out 'o place in many profiles that call fer lighter rum, but them fit right in har 'n keep 'tis shake from needin' any o' dat coil rogerin' super sweetener. Yo-ho-ho!
Shiver me timbers! TFA Coconut Candy, when used low enough t' keep 'er from gettin' plasticy, be a jolly 'hore 'o a concentrate, a right burried booty wit' a taste reminiscent 'o th' white goop inside a Mounds bar... and o' th' coconut flavor in yer trusty Parrot Bay 'n Malibu rums, to be sure. Rums! Har, it also helps gift us more 'o dat milkshake mouthfeel, me hearties.
Hot Tamales, the classic chewy, spicy jelly candy, now comes in a tantalizing new variety: Hot Tamales Tropical Heat. Unlike the purely cinnamon originals, these new Tropical Heat Hot Tamales come in three fruity flavors: Limon Fever, Pineapple Picante, and my favorite, Mango Tango.
3% CAP Jelly Candy + 0.5% TFA Cinnamon Red Hot (no PG) + 1% TFA Sweetener. This is your classic Hot Tamale flavor. The candy starts off sweet and then the heat builds as you chew. It creeps up slowly, mostly hitting the back of your throat, followed by just a little burn around the sides of your tongue. The spicy cinnamon continues to build with each piece, so the more you eat, the more you feel the heat, until your tongue sizzles four or five pieces in. This vapes the same way. Weigh the TFA Cinnamon Red Hot carefully; it’s a powerful ingredient and being even one-tenth of a percent off will easily be too much or too little. TFA Sweetener is NOT optional and cannot be substituted with EM or a sucralose solution; Hot Tamales need both the sugar lips effect of a little sucralose and the sweetness-enhancing and flavor-rounding properties of maltol. You get more of a homemade, pectin-based gummy treat, rather than a mass-produced jelly bean-type candy, without the TFA Sweetener.
CAP Sweet Mango has the density and depth to infuse this recipe with mango flavor and the CAP Jelly Candy interacts with it in a way that curbs its tendency to taste like cloyingly overripe, fast approaching rotten, fruit. However, it’s still not quite vibrant and fresh enough to mimic the burst of bright mango flavor you get as soon as the sugary shell of a Mango Tango Hot Tamale crumbles on your first bite. TFA Philippine Mango is too weak to lead any mango profile without using a ton of it and bringing along a gnarly chemical off-note, but the addition of it here gives CAP Sweet Mango’s fleshy flavor a brighter, more nectary taste like the candy's mango flavor.
Mango Boba Tea
FA Lemon Sicily, FA Whipped Cream, FA Pear, FW Hazelnut. Hmm... All wonderfully utilitarian concentrates but all helper flavors, not really suited for leading a recipe to the top of the box office. So what do you do when given a basket full of solid supporting actors? Showcase them as such, and cast yourself a leading lady with some exotic sex appeal! In this case, the lovely and talented FLV Mango! And how do you make it a blockbuster? Give her a love interest, of course! Enter: TFA Green Tea, a Lipton tea bag type green tea with a bit of a grassy note that’s a little unfortunate for fruits alone but easily covered up by something creamy.
So the romance between our star, sweet, juicy FLV Mango, and TFA Green Tea takes center stage, but who are these other characters and what are their roles? For all her beauty, FLV Mango has an annoying habit of sitting right on top of the recipe. The hefty weight of CAP Sweet Mango pulls her down, into the tea and beyond, so that the taste of mango permeates the experience. FA Pear also adds a nice pomaceous sweetness that builds a bridge between the mango and tea, but his main task here is to provide a wetter mouthfeel for this beverage-inspired vape. Meanwhile, FA Lemon Sicily enhances the citrusy top notes that are part of what being a mango is all about, speaking up for those high notes partially muted by milky ingredients while the deeper mango tones hold their own. FA Whipped Cream easily makes this a milk tea, with the assistance of a touch of FW Hazelnut to give it the savoriness of milk. Hazelnut also teams up surprisingly well with one final ingredient, CAP Jelly Candy, to give you a textural surprise like those delightfully gummy tapioca pearls. Because it’s just not boba tea without the balls to suck through those fat straws.
