This is just as the recipe says a Blueberry Custard with a Coconut back. This is good at 3 days but I prefer it at the 10 day mark, it gives the flavors time to relax. I also prefer to vape this at a lower wattage because it really lets the flavors play off of one another.
Blueberry, Blueberry Muffin, Boysenberry - This makes up a very nice and sweet blueberry flavor with a small amount of crust.
Sweet Coconut - This is one of the better coconut flavors out, you want to keep it low or it will dominate the entire recipe.
Vanilla Custard, Cream - This makes an extremely light and creamy custard sauce.
Sweetness - This one could be left out all together but I enjoy this vape very sweet for some reason.
This recipe is inspired by Talenti Vanilla Blueberry Crumble Gelato. The actually blueberry is very mild while the Tahitian Vanilla is the star of this dessert. The crumble part has a very macaroon-like quality to it. You can definitely get the coconut flakes within this cookie crumble.
The blueberry will stay prominent in the first week. Then creams take over and push the bb to the back. I used TFA Cheesecake (graham crust) to add a bit of texture to the macaroon and a some weight to the overall mix.
A good ole fashioned Blueberry Cheesecake, still working on it but its getting close if not there already! This is gonna need its full steeping time to come together.
Update: Added FLV Cream to help the cream a little more since this BB seems to be a little potent and to help balance things out. Also kicked up the FLV Cheesecake .5% and took the TFA Cheesecake (GC) down .5% to balance out things a little further

After hearing about the competition the mix life crew did between Dave and Rick with a FLV only recipe, I got inspired to try to create my own recipe within the same parameters.
It would have been easy to do a simple tropical fruit or a tobacco, so I decided to go with a bakery instead.
Have you ever seen those Taste Kake sweet rolls in the stores? Well they have seasonal flavors too, and one of their summer flavors is Blueberry sweet rolls.
The are more or less a cinnamon roll, but instead of cinnamon they have some sort of blueberry filling in them. It's not just blueberries baked in and it's not a blueberry jam, it's weird actually, but in a good way.
FLV Blueberry muffin is really the main base of the flavor, it has some bakery notes to it and a great bakery blueberry, but alone it's nothing like the sweet roll
FLV Sweet dough is the real base to the dough, chewy, very slightly yeast risen dough with brown sugar/caramel notes to sweeten it and give it a hint of being baked. 1.25% sounds like a lot especially if you've used any of FLV other dough flavors, but this one is much lighter and more forgiving than the others.
FLV Blueberry is a weird fuckin' blueberry, but it's good. It's very 'purple' tasting, but it's a good way to bend other flavors. It really fills in some blueberry notes other blueberry flavor miss, so while it's poor solo it's great in a mix. In this case if you ever try the sweet rolls you instantly taste the 'purple' blueberry flavor in them, to the point with the first bite I had of one I thought of FLV blueberry instantly. With the two FLV blueberry flavors the blueberry is dead on to the sweet roll.
FLV Frosting is the icing the covers the sweet roll, it's a heavy vanilla glaze the covers them, and this fit right in on the profile. Not super intrusive in the mix, but adds sweetness and vanilla notes here and there
FLV cupcake batter works to thicken the entire vape up, give it some grease and cheap doughy cake vibe vs some fancy, high end fresh baked roll. It also up's the sweetness of the entire thing without the need to add sweetener.
It's end being super addictive and for a FLV only recipe it came together incredibly well.
This is a pretty decent shake and vape, but the cookie comes out more with a couple days steep.
It's a soft chewy oatmeal cookie with a dollap of blueberry jam baked into the middle. Similar to the Archway apple oatmeal cookies you can buy.
The FLV blueberry/boysenberry combination makes for a great blueberry jam with some much needed berry "darkness".
The JF cookie/CAP sugar cookie combo provides that cookie base without taking it too much in that buttery direction.
TFA toasted marshmallow and oatmeal cookie at these percentages provide the oatmeal/molasses notes. Much higher with the oatmeal cookie and it starts to get funky. It doesn't have a tremendous amount of oatmeal going on in it anyhow.
Tasteful blueberry soda mix with a touch of zen.

FLV Blueberry for its very aromatic flavor.
RF Blueberries & Cream (SC) for the mellow blueberry touch.
TPA Blueberry Extra, for the extra umph.
FA Lime Tahiti (CP) to lift the mix with a little touch of lime, It's not very sour but just enough.
FA Violet for the flowerish component of this mix.
FA Zen Garden for the mysterious touch.
RF Soda Base (SC) for a fresh sparkling sensation.
CAP SS at taste, i didn't needed it, just sweet enough for my taste :-)
Inhale: aromatic blueberry, cream and violet
Exhale: a complex flavor of blueberries and soda sentation with herbs.
Steep: 3 days is a good start, perfect after 5 days.
I finally found the Blueberry used in Smoke Crossroads Blueberry Custard. I spent loads of money on this juice before I started into DIY so cloning it has been a definite to do for me and now I am ready to share it with the community and just in time for diyordie remix month.
My first attempts at this recipe involved dam near every blueberry concentrate available from Flavor West to Delosi and they weren't even close. The moment I smelled Flavorah Blueberry I knew I had found the one. So the rest of the recipe was to me was straight forward and after bouncing around a few percentages I landed on this. Capella Vanilla Custard V1 at 3% with Flavorah Blueberry at 3% and Capella Super Sweet at .50%, after a 1 week steep this is the best clone. I truly believe that I could not get closer.
Now if you are like me after DIYing for a while and going back to your local B&M and picking up your old go to commercial juice for the purpose of cloning, you are no longer blown away by the flavor of that liquid. This in my opinion is because the DIY recipes that you have been creating/mixing and vaping are a lot more in depth. This in my opinion really shows that DIY recipes are more a labor of love and people who DIY really care about the flavor that they want their recipes to display. We are not worried about profit margins and deadlines and at the end of the day to us it is all about the flavor and experience.
SLIGHT RANT COMPLETE
So I took the recipe that I wanted to clone, cloned that bitch and then remixed it with love. This is that recipe. I stayed with FLV Blueberry at 3% as it is the main note to build around and at that percentage it stands out of the creams wonderfully. Now for the love custard eww bahahahaha. The CAP Vanilla Custard V1 in the reference was far to sharp and almost pungent but it was the concentrate that I needed, so kept it and massaged it into the the custard that I wanted. I reduced the percentage by half and added TPA Vanilla Swirl to round off the sharp vanilla note from the CAP. Then I added the FLV Cream to bring back that custardy thickness. I still needed to sweeten the mix as a whole and CAP Super Sweet at .30% was just right. There you go people mix the clone if you want to but I suggest mixing the remix, I recommend an 80/20 mix and both will need a full week of steeping. I hope you enjoy and leave some feedback as it is always appreciated. If you have had the reference liquid I would love to hear what you think. Thanks Krucial.
