The Banana Dessert
Banana’s are a fruit unlike any other. It’s creamy and velvety body, paired up with its light yet fragrant fruit top note create something out of this world. Honestly, it’s a shame that Banana’s are becoming endangered and their prices rising. But in vaping we’ll be able to enjoy the delicious flavor of this divine fruit for years and years to come. This Weekend Assignment is based around, not just the banana itself, but the amazing desserts and bakeries that use this fruit in their profiles. Such as Banana’s Fosters, Banana Splits, Banana Bread, and so on and so forth. In mixing, the blending of banana into your recipes has become somewhat of a stress test. It’s difficult to perfectly layer in the banana. And with #REMIXMONTH being here, only a handful of e-liquids have managed to do this correctly.
The Banana: This part is often looked at as the easy part of the recipe. But in reality, it’s often the most difficult. Not only is finding the right banana to use within your recipes is difficult, but finding the right concentration to use it at has proven to be quite stressing. The banana’s fragrant flavor rules out many flavorings, as they are just too strong. I personally find TFA Banana Cream as one of the bananas that do it right, due to its softer fragrance and thicker body. Others like TFA Ripe Banana have a great fruit flavor, but are difficult to blend being how potent their aromas. I would love to see recipes with banana’s that are laid in where you can taste the banana flavor, but it doesn’t encroach on the flavors of the other ingredients.
The Dessert: Now you can go in so many different areas here, it’s up to you and your creativity to figure out what dessert best accentuates the banana. But that’s the part that you shouldn’t forget. Accentuate the fruit, don’t try to mask it. And of course, that’s where the difficulty comes in. Finding what bakeries, desserts, candies, or creams, push the banana further without it being too much and without covering its flavor. And by the way, don’t forget to pick up TFA Banana Bread just because its so delicious.
So go out there and see what you can come up with. Don’t forget to post any recipes, flavor notes, or research down below in the comments for everyone to benefit from. I look forward to seeing what you all can come up with over this weekend. And when we come back next week, we’ll be jumping into Cuttwoods Boss Reserve, a banana/caramel/nut recipe.
