A chocolate creamy banana chewy sweet.
Just plaing with acai and thought banana would match it well.
Acai gives a thin chocolate-like layer and the 2 bananas combine to give the fake sweet banana candy. I've used the cream to reduce the acai prescence a little, for mouth feel and to blend the 3 together. The pear just adds a little sweetness, wetness and adds to the fake banana flavour.
This is the first recipe I've published so any feedback (good or bad) is really appreciated.
A general rundown on certain flavor choices.
Cucumber CAP - This gives it a nice juicy wetness factory. That way the juice won't be overly dry feeling in the mouth.
Salt Water Taffy FW - Very potent but when used in the 0.50% to 1.00% range can really add a nice taffy texture to a juice.
Super Sweet CAP - Gives it that commercial brand kick you see in most premium eliquids.
-A large credit goes to Dragonlady over at the /r/DIY_ejuice subreddit for a good base starting points on a mystery air head flavor. Thank you!
The idea behind this recipe started in the DIY_eJuice discord, where we were just bullshitting in the lobby one day, coming up with words that rhymed with "soda". Yoda came up, so I figured, being the "soda man" and all, why not give a "yoda soda" a shot.
So I started thinking, what are the characteristics of Yoda? First off, he's green. What "green" flavors do I have? Lime, Cactus, Apple, Pear, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus were on the shortlist (yes I know their flowers aren't green, but I considered all florals "green" for this purpose).
He's also an elder. That's where Elderflower came in to the picture.
So now I had all these flavors in mind, time to make this actually taste good.
The soda part is something I've worked with a lot, so of course I had to use my go-to fizz base: FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23. As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda.
FLV Elderflower became the main part I wanted to build around, and I know that pear and elderflower is a great pairing. FA Pear is perfect for that as it's very sweet, something that is needed to make the recipe balanced against the funky florals and sharp citruses.
TFA Honeysuckle was on the short list, and it is sort of a "funky pear" so I think it's a perfect match here to help the pear with the sweet part, and also bring a more funky vibe to the whole recipe.
As I did a first test mix with those flavors, I knew I was on the right path. The flavors all pair beautifully with eachother and the overall feeling you get from it is very refreshing. After that it was all about finding the right balance between the sharp citruses, funky florals and sweet pear. It took quite a few attempts to get the balance between the elderflower, honeysuckle and lemon lime right, but I think it ended up great. I wouldn't nesscesarily say that it tastes like "yoda".. whatever that would be, but I think the common thread in the recipe is make makes this a yoda soda.
TLDR flavor notes;
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime acts as the sprite esque soda base, WS-23 adds the cooling which further enhances the soda feeling.
FA Pear adds a very sweet and authentic pear flavor. It's very juicy which helps the mix with the freshness.
TFA Honeysuckle pairs great with the pear to give that funky sweetness, it helps sweeten the citruses and adds some complexity to the mix.
FLV Elderflower adds a floral touch, although it's a bit sweeter than other flowers, and a little musky. I think the sweet-tart flavor that blueberries usually have, this is in the same realm as that.
Ok here we go. This one is a nice refreshing summer drink vape.
Lemonade Base - VT Lemonade Clear is an interesting lemonade with a bit of Fiz, FLV lemonade help to enhance the longevity of the lemonade. SC Lemon gives you some of that authentic lemon while VT Sour Lemon gives you that nice lemon zest. This is a really solid base for the lemonade.
FA Pear is used really for sweetness to go along with the FLV Wild Melon/JF Honeydew combo to give us a honeydew forward melon mix.
Finally the FLV Boysenberry helps to syrup up the fruits and add a touch of berry to the mix. Enjoy!
Just a delicious Peaches and Cream!
The peaches in this are 100% in the front. Sweet, yet tangy, the combo of 2-1 FA White Peach to Cap Yellow Peach really works fantastically.
Cap Marshmallow forms the backbone of the cream/sweetness and the LB Van IC + Cap Van Whipped really make it thick and luscious. It really lingers on the pallet and has a great mouthfeel.
FA Pear is just to knock down any peach astringency and also to add wetness. Up the pear if you find it to be too dry for your likings.
Sweetener to taste, I only added Rick's van to this because of the vanilla notes I was already using. Super sweet to taste, but I think 0.1% is more than enough on top of the Rick's .5%
A fresh citrus apple soda for y'alls!
I just keep throwing random stuff at the fizzy/sprite base that I used in my Citraspberry recipie, and this works really well.
FA Fuji / CAP Double Apple pair up great to give us a well rounded apple flavor, and FA Pear gives that extra sweetness that those flavors are lacking.
FLV Citrus Soda / CAP Lemon Lime serves as the fizzy "sprite" base.
TFA Vanilla Swirl might seem wierd here, but it mutes the sharp notes that both the citruses and apples have, and brings a very nice slightly vanilla touched sweetness. I think most of you won't taste the vanilla, unless you are really looking for it.
WS-23 is optional or use at your prefered percentage. I recommend starting at 0.25% if you are not used to it, otherwise 0.5-1%.
