This is simply a Mango/ Guava smoothie topped with Strawberry. I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe & had to make a bottle for myself so I thought you all might like to try it. If you like Mango/ Guava vapes, your going to love this one. Could easily add a little Banana or Pineapple into this recipe. Enjoy <3
A bright tropical blend of Cherimoya, Guanabana, Mango, and Cherries in a delicate whipped cream.
INW Mango: I started originally with FLV Mango but found it to stand out too much and take on a syrupy tone when combined with the others. At 2% the mango is straightforward and present, with a mild "green" note freshly mixed. This helps create a strong tropical base for the Guanabana and Cherimoya flavors to work their magic.
FLV Guanabana: My first attempts used this much higher, but I found it to also take on a sort of syrupy texture when I used it too high, so over a few revisions I dialed it back to 1.5%. At this percentage, in conjunction with Cheriymoya, we get a nice authentic Soursop that's both tangy and bright.
INW Cherimoya: This stuff is potent as hell, but authentic. Freshly mixed it'll overpower the Guanabana but after a steep they blend well to create a singular Soursop flavor. It has a bit of a peel flavor to it that I feel adds to the authenticity without overtly affecting the final profile.
INW Cherries: Anything less than 2% and you can't taste them in this mix at all. Initially I feared this would cause some unwanted medicinal flavors, but I found that when combined with other strong bodied flavors they did exactly the opposite. A bright, but not overpowering cherry note to sweeten the final mix. Initially I used a few strawberry variations in the place of this, but found the INW Cherries to do a much better job at sweetening the mix while adding a little more tartness to the final profile.
CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream: All original versions of this contained FA Whipped Cream, but as it's been discontinued I reformulated to use CAP. This final touch adds a light, but sweet cream base to smooth over some of the green/tart notes while creating a nice sweet finish that doesn't take away from the authenticity of the fruits or add a granulated sugar type flavor. At 2.5% it's perceptibly present, but not overly so.
A super juicy, fruity mix that has ended up being an ADV of mine for nearly a year.
I started trying to clone Strawberry Astronaut, but then kept tweaking and adding until it strayed from the original idea.
The two types of strawberry as a base shouldn't need an explanation, but everyone loves strawberry and these are the go-tos.
My favorite fruit is raspberry, and I Love Razzleberry pie, so I thought the razzleberry from Flavor west would add a nice mixed berry flavor.
The Mango and Apricot from Inawera are there from the Strawberry Astronaut attempt, but i had switched from TPA to INW because I liked the fresher sweeter fruit flavors found in the INW.
A little bit of INW Cactus was added to add a nice juiciness to the recipe.
The FLV Guanabana is OPTIONAL, as it is only in my final revision. I just got it and thought it would help the fruits pop a bit, but my previous versions didn't have it in at all.
