I love Lassi drinks and the one that sticks out the most to me is a Pineapple Lassi with ginger I had. This is my attempt to create that and to use MB's Pineapple Lassi.
So obviously I started with MB's Pineapple Lassi as I've been wanting to build something around that flavor. I kept it at 1.5% mostly because I want all these flavors to blend without one being too dominant.
I wanted to back up that pineapple with some fresh pineapple used in the drink, so I went with INW Pineapple for that purpose. After some trial and error I went with 3% to keep it above the ginger.
I added a fair amount of VT Yoghurt Drink to fill in the drink aspect and to lighten things a little with that lemon note.
To further push the creamy drink I added a dab of FA Cream Fresh just to add some nondescript creaminess.
The Ginger was hard. I honestly just went with Cap Gingerbread as that's the only ginger I have. I think it works. It does bring a bready note, but I kind of like it and makes the flavor a little more dense and layered.
The drink I had was sweetened with Honey, so I wanted to add a bit of that without getting a strong honey taste. I really wanted just a little of that honey depth and slight sweetness, so I went with a modest amount of FLV Milk & Honey. I think it blends well with the Cap Gingerbread as well.
Finally, this is a sweet drink so I added a tad of Cap Super Sweet to raise things.
Suggestions would be appreciated if another ginger would give me a mild sweet ginger note I could use.
I wanted a slight spearmint note with a sweetened heavy cream. This is my attempt at it, and really my first attempt at making my own recipe period. I really dig this. It is great right off the shake, in fact, I almost prefer it right off the shake as you get a little bit more of the New York Cheesecake. Delicious. It steeps nicely and the mint does fade, but I still find it an enjoyable all day vape.
I wish I could give you more information about why I choose this flavor for this reason, but I'm really not into single flavor tasting. I just used the flavors that I have acquired from research. . . and recipes I've bought for. Watching Noted in particular and listening to what flavors ranked and what they could do brought me to this list for this recipe. I had intended to take the long road and alter percentages and try alternative flavors, but to be honest. . . . I really like this as it stands.
The one thing I can say is that the mint is mild in this. I might bump it up a .25% when I mix it next, but for the most part I think these are spot on for my taste and what I was going for.
If you do indeed try this recipe out, I encourage you to try it as it steeps. The changes in flavor are quite nice and really change from day to day.
