About 95% my mixing life all I have worked on is bakery/dessert style recipes, usually with some sort of fruit note (Ruby's Oatz, Key Lime n Piel, etc). Making something that revolved around just a fruit profile is something I have always wanted to put some serious effort into, so why not start now? This is the "fruit" of that labor. It's still a bit in the dessert department, but this is a Melon slush that I think you will really enjoy for the rest of summer.
Fruit Mix: When I SFT'd PUR Watermelon it was pretty dang tasty, but was more of a candied watermelon. I played with LA's as well; but I arrived at a combination of PUR Watermelon, CAP Cantaloupe, and JF Honeydew Melon for the melon mix. Honeydew helps give a sort of natural melon base, with CAP Cantaloupe bridging the gap between them.
Some Slushiness: I played with VT Fizzy Sherbet in a few different recipes. For those that want a good baseline of VT Fizzy Sherbet in a recipe, check out The Spider by StarsandClouds or 7 NUP by pgl55. It really helps imply that effervescence of a soda-type drink. To add a bit more juiciness to it, I added a bit of FA pear to try and make a basic slush base. I'm sure there are better out there, but I like this one personally since Pear will accent the other fruits well anyway. WS-23 helps bring it all home with that nice and cool throat hit.
You can probably get away with a 1-day steep on this, but I like to give it 3 just to let everything settle. I hope you dig it!
This is an ICEY Melon Pineapple mix with some light passionfruit and citrus.

While working on a refreshing melon blend for the summer, I ended up with not only a bold melon, but also a substantial bubblegum note- to my palate at least. This was an accident, and clearly a mistake born of experimenting with flavors I hadn't ever used before. That being said, I'm very much enjoying it as is.
Worth noting- this is using TFA Honeydew 1. I have no idea how Honeydew 2 differs, and I strongly suspect that the honeydew in this recipe is what pushes it over the edge into bubblegum territory along with the cantaloupe and fuji apple. For this reason I recommend sticking to Honeydew 1. I also personally enjoy the high percentage of WS-23 30%, but it should be great at any percentage you like.
A dense, mellow cantaloupe vape with fleshy tropical accents.
Created for "Flavor of the Week: Cantaloupe"
FLV Cantaloupe for that rind-free natural cantaloupe top note and some non-dairy almost-creaminess underneath. Under-rated, under-used TFA Jackfruit for an even fleshier body with soft hints of pineapple and mango coming though. It keeps things more interesting than just a straight cantaloupe vape. CAP Cantaloupe blends with the Jackfruit to keep the melon ball rolling though where FLV Cantaloupe starts to drop off in meloniousness and just fades into thick almost creamy softness. This flavor has a tiny bit of some sharp perfumey thing going on briefly in the top note in single-flavor testing, but FLV Cantaloupe is just completely overriding and obliterating that for me. This is the only version out of half a dozen experiments throwing different manufacturers' Cantaloupe flavors on top of this TFA Jackfruit/CAP Cantaloupe base that actually worked and made for a perfectly pleasant vape without any weird off-notes.
BUT, it feels incomplete - which is why the "In Progress" box is checked. Mostly it just needs to be juicier, but rather than going for one of the knee-jerk juicifiying reactions (INW Cactus, etc), I want to try adding pineapple or mango flavors to add acidity while also playing off those notes from the jackfruit, or if that comes off too just generically yellow-orange, maybe a juicier grape, cherry, or dark berry. I wouldn't recommend anyone mix up a big batch of this, but if you're looking to create a cantaloupe-forward recipe, give it try and see if it inspires you.
This is a tangy, mango recipe, fit with tropical fruits and candy sweetness.

Hello to all you wonderful people of ATF. After trying many great recipes over the last few months, I finally feel like it is my turn to give back to this community.
This project has been on and off with many versions and tweaks over the last 5 month's or so, but now I feel it is finally where I want it to be.
Oasis was the first commercial juice I really wanted to clone. It is a blend of Peach, Cantaloupe, and Papaya and is quite good actually, however, I saw some room for improvement.
I am going to say right off the bat that I realize this recipe may look a bit redundant with the multiple flavors per fruit but I can assure you that each and every one serves a purpose.
FLV Cantaloupe: This is an awesome flavoring. Probably the most authentic Cantaloupe I have tried, however, it lacks body and is a bit harsh. At this percentage it lends a tasty ripe cantaloupe without many negatives.
TFA Cantaloupe: This is a sweet candy-like Cantaloupe. It works at 1.5% to lend some of those sweet ripe top notes without too much of the candiness. Also adds a bit of body.
CAP Cantaloupe: This is a nice fairly authentic Cantaloupe although a bit mellower than FLVs. At 2% this works well to flesh out the Cantaloupe and add a bit of body throughout the recipe.
TFA Papaya: The main Papaya component in this recipe. At 2% I find you get a great, slightly artificial flavor, while reducing most of the pepperiness that can come with it.
FA Papaya: This is here mainly to help authenticate the TFA Papaya.
INW Peach: An excellent peach flavor. Brings a fair bit of juiciness to the recipe and is pretty authentic. 1.25% brings a nice ripe peach flavor while minimizing the earthiness that can pop up at higher percentages.
FA White Peach: An excellent flavor and a must have for sure. I use this to add some tartness and brighter top notes to the recipe. It has an almost "green" nature which I believe helps to mimic the rind area of the Papaya and Cantaloupe. 1% works for me, however you could reduce it to 0.75% if it is too earthy for you.
TFA Marshmallow: This is here to boost the sweetness a touch and add a bit more body.
TFA Whipped Cream: I use this to emulsify and smooth out any sharp edges.
So there you have it folks, my first ATF recipe! This recipe reminds me of a fresh and flavor packed fruit smoothie. It is sweet, smooth and very enjoyable to vape imo. I truly hope that at least some of you will enjoy this as much as I do ☺
*Shake and Vape but better after 3-5 days
*Feel free to add some koolada or ws-23 for an ice cold smoothie.
