Personally i think that a summer vape should be either fruit or ice cream/sorbet . Custards and bakeries are just too heavy in hot weather and much more suited to autumn and winter . I wanted to mix something simple avoiding most of the usual standard fruits . I decided on grapefruit as it's something i haven't used very much previously . I chose VT Grapefruit as it is quite authentic tasting and also pairs well with other citrus flavours and combined this with Inawera Grapefruit to add more tartness and body . FA Mandarin is a real favourite of mine . It adds some sweet , zesty notes and i think it works well alongside the grapefruit . I added FLV Guanabana to give a tropical backnote without overpowering the grapefruit and mandarin . I've used a small amount of sweetener and ws-23 but this is optional depending on personal taste , can be higher or lower if you prefer .
Although this is can be a shake and vape i think it is much better after a 24 - 48 hour steep.
Custard Creams are a traditional and classic British biscuit (cookie in the US) . They are a type of sandwich biscuit filled with a creamy, custard-flavoured centre. Traditionally the filling is vanilla flavour . I wanted to do a variation with a much richer , buttery biscuit and a creamy lemon custard filling .
Good after 10 days but really benefits from at least 14 days steeping
A creamy rich Banana Custard tart with Butterscotch and a hint of Vanilla . For the base i used TPA Pie Crust with INW Biscuit . I also added a touch of VT Butter Base for a richer buttery taste and to add mouthfeel to the recipe . VT Banana Custard has become a real favourite of mine . I do find that in bakeries the Banana can seem quite weak and so i have added some FLV Banana to help push it more to the front . I have added FA Custard Premium and FLV Vanilla Pudding to increase texture and mouthfeel . The Vanilla Pudding also helps with vanilla notes . I have added sweetener but this is optional depending on personal preference
