i love this recipe this one has been in my cream RTA for about 2 months now getting tweeks to how I like it i just wanted it thicker and i feel like for me atleast i achieve that shake and vape is okay but this recipe really starts shining at the 1 week mark the longer you leave it the better it gets i would suggest trying his recipe and then trying mine maybe you can come up with a better mix =]
Flavors I copied from original recipe with the same %: (FLV Sweet Coconut,FA Coconut, FA Cream Fresh, TPA Bav. Cream,FA Meringue, TPA Cheesecake Graham) Their original notes are better than mine would ever be.
What I Added:
INW Coconut Cookies- This one helps thicken the whole thing up as well ass bring some more coconut to the party i played with alot of other coconuts and this one is one of the few that didnt turn the wonderful original recipe into suntan lotion.
FA Custard Premium-Honestly this was my frist recipe I ave played with this one after SFTing it, I got some toffee hints with it as well as that full eggy custard and it blended this recipe beautifully
Hash' suggests erythritol (0.5%) or 1 drop of TFA marshmallow per 30ml
I used: 1 drop of TPA Toasted Marshmallow per 30ml
I love coconut sticky rice and really wanted to see how close I could come to it . On the inhale you get the lemon/lime and some of the paw paw notes that transitions to the coconut and rice.
The rice is a mix of sweet rice which is a sweet slightly creamy note and the rice base which helps to support with some texture and rice aroma
I love sweet coconut by flv it adds body and creaminess to the mix but I wanted that coconut to really pop so FA coconut works or even a little TPA coconut candy could help if you want more sweetness.
paw paw is a great fruit it has mango and cantaloupe notes with a creamy almost banana body
the lemongrass and lime add some brightness and top notes that works in this mix . lemongrass is a pretty potent and has a light floral note to it that can be noticed in back end but works in this mix for me
The vanilla cream just help fill in the body and blend this mix and adds a brighter vanilla note
I wanted more sweetness in this, so I added sweetness - but sweeten to your taste
This has been a very fun recipe to work on, trying to nail down which flavors that would make this authentic, but also translate well in to a vape recipe.
The first thing that had to be done was get the crepe/pancake right. WF Crepe SC was a given choice here, as it has that light and soft dough note, everything you want from a pancake/crepe flavor. By itself it is a bit too light though, especially when you’re throwing a lot of other powerful flavors on top.
I know that @foment_life used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl in combination with WF SC Crepe in his Breakfast of the Gods recipe, something which is perfect here – as the Crepe needs a bit more dough to stand out, and we also need that cinnamon spice for the filling.
I did experiment a bit with other combinations such as LB Belgian Waffle (which also has a slight cinnamon note), and FLV Rich Cinnamon, but I found none of them to be as good as the WF Crepe/CAP CDS combo, as the cinnamon note should be “just there” to make it as authentic as possible. CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl v2 can be used as sub for the v1, I have tried with both and I honestly don't taste any significant difference.
Next up was trying to find a good flavor to replicate the palm sugar syrup, which is used both for the filling and garnish. WF SC Molasses turned out to be the best choice here, I’m not 100% convinced it’s the most authentic, but it is however by far the most yummy, as it has that brown sugar note that plays great with the coconut. The other flavor I experimented with was VT Golden Syrup, but the caramel note in there makes the recipe way too sweet to enjoy for longer periods of time. I wouldn't recommend trying to sub the molasses, it's very unique, especially how it interacts with the sweet coconut notes.
Third, the coconut BOMB. Look at the picture and you’ll see how coconut heavy this recipe is. The whole filling is just heaps and heaps of grated coconut, so the coconut needs to be a very good tasting main note, and also have a great body to it. This has been by far the toughest part of the recipe, as the very flaky texture is hard to achieve, so you just have to settle for how yummy they are.
My conclusion of this is that you can actually use 2 different combinations, but there is 1 flavor that has to be in there no matter what – FLV Coconut. It’s the only flavor that really has that thick (almost) grated coconut feel to it. It’s extremely potent, so use it with caution. DO NOT KNUCKLE TEST THIS FLAVOR!!!!
The second flavor that I landed on is FA Coconut, I think it also has some of the same qualities as FLV Coconut, it’s a bit flakey but also brings some of a milky note. Together they make a great thick and very yummy coconut flavor.
The third flavor that can be used as a sub for FA Coconut is FLV Sweet Coconut. This is by no means a bad sub at all, and I think some people might even prefer it. I don’t though, because I don’t think it has the same body, so not as authentic. I’d recommend using FLV Sweet Coconut at 1.5% if you plan on subbing.
VT Dessicated Coconut could maybe also be an option for the cocobomb, I'm not sure it would taste better, but maybe more authentic. It is was out of stock on Chefs so no way for me to get it just yet.
Last, I’d say the lime could be left out, but I feel it does precisely the same job as the lime in the real dish – by adding a strong contrasting note it elevates the other flavors. I also think it makes for a much more pleasant vape, as the other flavors can become a bit boring in the longer run. VT Shisha Lime was the best choice as it doesn’t water down the other flavors as much as other limes.
I did also experiment a lot with different dragon fruits, as it’s a common topping to use. I did however realize that I had to scrap that idea, as there was just no way to make this possible as it’s such a “weak” flavor.
STEEP: 3 - 7 Days
An impression of an Almond Joy. Trying to figure out how to effectively clone it, and this is the first step / iteration.

This is meant to emulate Naked's Lava Flow - a Strawberry, Pineapple, Coconut profile
Made on Live Mixing:
Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
This is a a very balanced and good coconut milk with strawberries the initial inhale you get a strong strawberry right off the jump then its immediate followed by a thick and creamy coconut milk. I know a lot of people "HATE" TFA Coconut Extra but at a responsible 0.10% it adds a creamier feel to the FA coconut and it folds in nicely into the Cap vanilla custard this is definitely an ingredient i would say if you need to lower it to 0.05% go for it but don't take it out lol (OK.. OK... IF YOU MUST I GUESS YOU CAN SUB FOR FLV SWEET COCONUT). Do not look at the 8% Strawberry Ripe and think there is a way to lower it because if you do you will loose the separation and the strong Strawberry vibe. Its hard to distinguish were The strawberry ends and the the coconut begins but there is a definite separation and you get both flavors in a very good separated way. If you enjoy tropical island vibe with your strawberry this is a must try
