"Your task for this month is to make whatever you want, but then pick an additional flavor that typically wouldn’t go with what your base recipe is. "
This was my mission and I chose to accept it.
As a kid my mom used to make me rose milk all the time. Its a great little Indian version of Nesquik syrup. I've really enjoyed my Kheer recipe, but I've also really enjoyed my smoothie recipes which are basically lassi's. So I decided to go all pen pineapple apple pen and UNGH Rose Kheer Lassi. This is basically my Indian version of bubble tea, don't @ me.
For those that do not know kheer is an Indian dessert that is a rice pudding. Generally consisting of rice, milk, cardamom, almond and pistachio. I decided to use the first 3 ingredients. My go to for rice was always FE Sweet Rice, but I decided to switch it up and give the VT Thai Sticky Rice a shot. I gives you a nice sweet cooked rice flavor for the kheer base. The cardamom was easy, its always FA Cardamom. Next up we need the milk this is where the VT Peach Yoghurt comes into play. I don't get much peach from it at all and I get no yoghurt, but what I do get is a rose like flavor with some nice milky creaminess. When told @Zany I was combining VT Peach Yoghurt with Thai Sticky Rice he called me a monster, so that's how I knew I was on the right track for my mission. I added the VT Glazed strawberries for some added pink syrupiness, but its not strong enough to turn the rose flavor into a strawberry. The FLV cream rounds the cream base out. I wanted to add a touch of tart which is where the MB Greek Yogurt comes into play, its not quite as tart as I want it, but I'll get there.
Built this from Boxerdog and TeslaDelMar's bangin Sour Apple Melon. May the 4th be with you and within that them we all know Yoda was a dusty old fart. Guy, thing, whatever thought he knew everything. Well he completely ignored the revival of the Sith until it was too late. He was farting out dust by the time he met baby face Luke Skywalker.
This is a simple Sour Green Apple Fundip.
For the apple I used the ingenious combo of TFA(Tart Green Apple) with Cap Double Apple and FLV Apple to start. Boxer and Tes really nailed this combination and I decided to kick up the apple with the FM Green Apple.
Next we need to dust this shit up and I used the WF Pixie Candy combined with OOO Powdered sugar to give us that grainy dusty old fart flavor.
The WF Sourball Candy helps with the sour, but also gives us some fundip stick vibe to it. Enjoy!
Ok so I like tropical smoothie's sue me and I'm brown so we call them lassi's. I wanted a nice pineapple mango smoothie then the lemony note in Yoghurt drink got me thinking about adding a dash of lemon/lime. The VT YD can get overpowered pretty easily in a mix so the FW yogurt is being used to back it up. You don't want to loose that yoghurty goodness in the fruit. I decided to take my go to pineapple mix and add some of the Sugarloaf pineapple to it, its got a nice syrupy texture and mouthfeel and it helps to add to the juiciness factor.
Mango is tough to nail without the mango funk, but this mix of VT Shisha Mango and Fa Indian Special seems to do the trick without overpowering the pineapple. Mango is the support here with the up front pineapple. The shisha lime just adds works well enough with the VT to add some additional brightness and a touch of that citrus bite.
I also use WS-23 in it and you can adjust it up or down. No sweetener or softener required here so there was not point in adding SS or TFA Marshmallow to it.
This is my take on a simple blue razz lemonade. LB and OSSDIY are clearly the best Blue Razz flavors, but even combined at a high percentage need a little support, which is why added in the INW Rasp. I love using INW rasp low to bolster the Blue Razz flavor and make it pop.
I didn't want to cheat this recipe and build on my puckenade, so I took a shot at using some other lemons. I really like the VT Lemonade clear its a nice lemonade with a touch of fizz, I don't really get the fizz in this, but that's because I didn't want this to be fizzy. The vt sour lemon is extremely potent and adds some of that fresh lemon pucker and the FW Lemonade is just a lemonade support.
I used the TFA Pear as a bit of sweet blender along the cactus to round some of the sharp edges. For you cactus haters out there I can't taste any cactus since it's used so low. The WS-23 and Cap SS can be used in whatever quantity you prefer. For a simple recipe this took 2 additional revisions after I first mixed it, so this was nice little challenge.
Just a very simple custard recipe using one of the newer fantastic custards out there. This is a nice a sweet banana custard with a hint of bake strawberries. I just wanted to use some newer 2019 flavors here and see what I could come up with in a 1-2-3 format.
The TFA VC II is an amazing vanilla custard. Its rich, a bit sweet with some nice vanilla notes to it. The banana custard at 2% isn't really a custard, but more just a nice fresh banana. This gives you a very interesting baked strawberry with ripe banana's mixed with a vanilla custard.
So this is pretty straight forward. I love sour gummy candy and after being inspired by Noted's "Gummy Candy" and "2019 Flavors of the Year" episodes I decided I wanted to mix up some thing that was fruity, sour and sweet.
I used the MB Big Watermelon to back up the WF Sour Watermelon Candy. I didn't want it over powered by the FLV Peach Gummy. Adding the candylike WF Strawberry(Juicy) gave me the mixed fruit combination. It's a relatively simple recipe, but I enjoy it.
First recipe I've published in a while. I guess I'm kinda back, recipes will be spaced out a lot more than once a month like I used to. I'll probably shoot for 4/year.
First things first, I'm mixing this up after trying Toasted by @MrBurgandy and I hope you don't mind me throwing my spin on it. I really enjoyed Toasted, but for my taste I wanted something a touch different. Cinnamon Sugar mixed into a bowl of Corn Flakes with banana's in milk sounds phenomenal. Since I'm currently on a Keto diet I can't eat it, so I want to vape it.
So I started with the Cinnamon part. Cap Cinnamon Sugar with FLV Cinnamon Crunch just went so well in one of my favorite dessert recipes:
So I decided to give it a go here to give me that cinnamon toast crunch type cinnamon flavor while adding a touch of graininess.
The Cereal 27 base is great for my cornflakes base, but I decided to crank it up a tiny notch by adding some of FA corn. I wanted to add a touch of savory to this recipe and the FA Corn just did it so well when mixed with Cereal 27.
Pur Banana is such a great real banana flavor and you don't get any of that runts taste.
I used the Marshmallow to give it some additional sweetness.
The OOO Creamy Underpants + FA Milk combo with FW Hazelnut as a bit of an emulsifier just work wonderfully. It gives you a nice creamy drizzle of milk. If you don't have FA Milk, which is likely, you could probably crank up the Creamy Underpants and ditch the hazelnut.
Well this came as a request from a friend I started mixing for. He wanted a mango pineapple juice type of mix so I went hard on the mango and pineapple. I've found the 3%-1% INW Pineapple to Golden Pineapple is really a sweet spot. For the main mango's I went with the staples FLV and VT Shisha. Like many FLV flavors their mango is potent and on point. When you open Shisha Mango and smell it, its just straight mango nectar. The mango & tango is one of my new favorites. It definitely needs Mango support and the tango, whatever it is, helps the pineapple pop. If want something fruity try this and add WS-23 if you want, go nuts.
Here's my stab at your classic skittles.
Purple - I used a combo of Grape and Black Currant here as in my research I found that both flavors are listed for purple. Together they taste very purple.
Red - Candy strawberry here that's why I left off the Shisha, don't need that realistic part in this candy recipe.
Green - Shisha lime combined with Cap SS is pretty aromatic and candied lime
Orange - Shisha Orange, see green
Yellow - Went with the pure lemon here mixed with the candy portions its pretty solid in here
Candy - WF Pixie Stick Candy + Cap Rainbow candy give you a nice sweet candy taste. It really helps turn these fruits into candy
Softening - the TFA Marshmallow helps to soften some of the sharp edges of the fruit. If you like it let me know.
