A remix, with tobacco added.
This is the basic description of the commercial juice this is inspired by. I went on a business trip and did not take enough juice for the entire week. I wound up checking for a B&M but the only things near the hotel in that part of upstate NY sold their own house juices so I picked the one that looked more professional. This juice of theirs was the only one that resonated with me so I did their special for the day of 3x30 for 30$ From the minute I tasted it to the end of the third bottle all I could think was DAMMIT THIS NEEDS TOBACCO.
I went about this a bit different from my normal approach which is to get my tobacco profile and build on it. I went with an established profile, got as close to it as I wanted to adjusting for my tastes and added the tobacco. This is a darker rich profile, I wanted to keep in that vain keeping it rich and dark. I do not know that this is ADV material. But it is really good for me, I have been vaping this in the evenings.
Remixed my White Hummingbird, which was a cross between ENYAWREKLAW’s Yeo Layer and ID10-T’s Longing. I traded out FA Coco’ for FLV Coconut (at 0.5% . . . more on this in a bit). Dropped FLV Cream and FA Cream Fresh (1% each) in favor of OOO Cream Milky Undertone at 1%. I kept FE Sweet Rice (5%), TFA Honeysuckle (3%), and DFS Holy Vanilla (2%) where they were from the White Hummingbird.
I moved away from FA Meringue and TFA Vanilla Swirl in favor of the concentrates that make up Deejay_mills pudding stone (search /r/DIY-eJuice for pudding stone), changing up the percentages a bit. I went with FLV Vanilla Pudding at 2%, INW Custard at 1.25%, and (here’s where the coconut comes back into play) the aforementioned FLV Coconut at 0.5%.
All of this was attempted to make use of a new concentrate (and subsequently turn the white hummingbird pink) . . . FA Red Bean. Red Bean (adzuki/azuki) paste is a staple in Asian desserts . . . it is also in some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had (Red Bean Ice Cream from The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory in NYC). I’ve been obsessed with red bean desserts since I first tried the ice cream in 2000. It is a sweet, savory, earthy flavor that just speaks to me . . . it almost reminds me of a sweeter, softer, raw red-skinned peanut.
Red Bean is a natural pairing with sweet rice and custard/pudding. I started out at 0.5%, but that was way too forward. It overtook everything. I halved it, and it seems to be sitting pretty at 0.25% (I should have just taken Wayne's advice in his Red Bean Ice Cream recipe and not wasted my time and nicotine being hard headed). The sweet rice and creamy, vanilla custard/pudding make up the foundation and rides the front of the exhale. The earthy red bean paste gets swirled into the rice custard as you hit the midway point of the exhale. Finally, at the end of the exhale the honeysuckle just peaks through in a beautiful way.
Mixed 60vg/40pg and shook it up. This is definitely a SNV given the FE Sweet Rice. I will update as it steeps, but, off a shake, it is extremely well layered: starchy, sweet rice custard upfront . . . savory, earthy red bean in the middle . . . sweet vanilla-honeysuckle on the end. It is creamy throughout and, in my opinion, extremely enjoyable. I know it’s not for everyone, but, if you are a fan of red bean/red bean paste desserts, the FA Red Bean is a must have.
I took Deejaymillsnyc's pudding base and threw in Butter Pecan and it turned out great.
FLV Vanilla Pudding is pretty close to FLV Vanilla Custard just a tad bit sweeter and here it is the base we use to set up the pudding.
INW Custard is the king of all custards for me now. It's so thick and creamy and best of all is it has that iconic strength we know INW for along with being good right off the shake without weeks of steeping.
FLV Coconut is spendy but here, and most every where else, you're going to use drops at a time as it's incredibly strong. Here I used 1d/10ml. It just boosts the creamy and thick pudding base we are after.
FW Butter Pecan rich and buttery. Has only a slight aftertaste of pecan but it is realistic. This is actually my first time using it and I'm impressed by it.
The actual pudding base is worthy of a shake and vape but the pecan needs some time to show it's face so give this 5-7 days before basking in it's glory.
Give anyone of his pudding mixes a shot; you won't be disappointed!
Inspiration for this recipe struck after working on a pumpkin pie ice cream. Looking into it tropical eggnog, it is actually a thing!!! In Puerto Rico it's called Coquito After looking at a few recipes decided this was something I needed it my life. and trust me when I say you need it yours. Smooth creamy eggnog with a coconut kick, what's not to love?
FLV eggnog- this is hands-down the best eggnog flavoring I have tasted to date. smooth and creamy custard, with nutmeg and cinnamon. An obvious choice for a solid base to this recipe.
FA custard - wanted to add an extra layer of custard without the spices. I tried several different variations including, CAP vanilla custard, and FLV custard, flavourart custard was my favorite. CAP vanilla custard ended up muting all of the spice notes, but was still very tasty. FLV custard was also very tasty but didn't add any complexity into the recipe.
Coconuts - all three of these flavorings have their strengths and weaknesses. The combination of these three, at these percentages, highlights all of their strengths. To be honest you could probably get away with just using one (my favorite was sweet coconut at 3%.) That said this combination is far more complex, and was definitely my favorite.
FA Jamaican special- frankly how can you have eggnog without rum? And when looking at rum flavorings if a Jamaican special, also known as Jamaican rum is definitely at the top shelf. This concentrate has a great rum flavor, that pairs up perfectly with the eggnog. I was hoping it would bring a little warmth to the recipe unfortunately, that is not the case you could always try a little TFA Kentucky bourbon, it does bring a level of warm but can't get past the off notes.
FA marshmallow - does a few things here, for us helps soften the harsh notes, the nutmeg can have as a shake and vape, along with adding a fluffy texture, and adds an extra level of sweetness.
When I was blueprinting this recipe before doing any research on the topic I had banana in the mix. After researching and tasting a reference. Decided to keep this traditional, oddly enough the combination of eggnog and coconut does give me a banana flavor, and TFA Banana Foster would fit in here very very well.
Criticism and feedback, are much appreciated. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy.
Biko is a Filipino rice cake made of sticky rice, coconut cream, coconut milk, and brown sugar. Some recipes include butter; which is always a welcomed addition in the recipe, but not required. This is a traditional Filipino sweet and sticky rice cake that was often eaten during the holidays or during parties when I was small.
For this recipe, I wanted to capture this rich, delicious, and very much loved dessert my mother would make for us.
It is very tasty right away but 1 week steep would be optimal.
♥️ I hope you enjoy it ♥️
★Q & A
• Question: Is this very sweet?
• Answer: Yes. On a sweetness scale: 1 (not sweet) - 5 (very sweet). I would rank it a 4.5.
If you do not prefer added sweeteners like Super Sweet - feel free to substitute with Meringue. Or feel free to leave the sweetener out. It is nice & sweet on its own.
• Question: Can I mix at a higher VG ratio?
• Answer: Sure thing. 70/30, 80/20, whichever you prefer. However I would increase the steeping time. Approx. 1.5 - 2 weeks.

This is a nice light coconut cream pie flavor. Perfect for a nice light dessert vape. This could Definetely be used as a Stone to add fruits to as well. I simply love it just as is.
FLV Coconut - Brings that Authentic cocunut flavor and really make it taste top notch.
TFA Coconut Candy - This adds a nice cocunut sweetness to the recipe bringing it to more of that dessert type flavor.
Graham Cracker Clear and inw biscuit -combine to bring the flaky Crust of a pie to the recipe.
Vanilla Swirl TFA - brings a solid vanilla flavor that works well in various bakery recipes.
Shisha vanilla - this Adds a nice light sweet Vanilla flavor to add to the goodness of vanilla Swirl.
TFA Butter- just brings a little buttery note to the flaky Crust to make it feel like a true bakery pie fresh out of the oven.
FA Cream Fresh adds that nice dairy note as well as the whipped cream topping that you experience in a real Cocunut cream pie.
Cap Supersweet- this is optional, but I think it just gives the recipe a much needed sweetness to make it that much better. Mixed at 70/30. Steep 7 days for best results .
So the coconut, custard, van pudding is a base ive been using for several months whenever i wanted to make a fruit pudding (especially tropicals). Much sucess has come when ive add banana, soursop, and mango to this pudding. Add your favorite fruit. Ive been sitting on this one for a while and it wasnt until recently that some1 mentioned how accurate of a pudding that base is on it own. Flv van pudding does a wonderful job here and Imo is a great flavor to lay down for other stuff to sit on. Ive tried hard to take it down lower just because i use this concentrate often (especially in golden oreo pudding)
This is not a coconut pudding. You can not use flv sweet coconut. Flv coconut is a great thickening agent used in low amounts.
Pudding is thick no? The custard beefs up that flv van pudding.
For it to stand out as a straight vanilla pudding i needed to up the vanilla. Shisa vanilla is no secret that vanilla creaminess it can add to a mix. Holy vanilla while good just kinda messed with my delicate pudding.
Ive tried this recipe with a few diff bav creams cuz before flv van pudding came into my life bav crean was the only thing that came close to pudding for me. Tpa bav cream was my 2nd favorite version and fw bav cream was my least favorite. Which was surprising since that tends to be my favorite of the bunch (fw). If you dont have jf bav cream just mix it with TFAs, if details in a flavor matter to you mix it with jf bav cream :)
Puddings are kinda like my thing irl, im always on my fat kid shit.
Swiss miss creamy vanilla is my favorite kinda pudding. Second to my my mother's rice pudding <3
Cavendish: This was a surprise to me. This is a slightly spiced pipe tobacco. I get hints of cherry, and it is also slightly sweet. This used, even at .2%, gives a nice complexity and almost fills the empty spots that shade/cured needs. It also adds some complexity to the mix
Shade: I was turned on to shade due to the good "cigar wrapper leaf flavor". Thank you @fear!!!! This has a few notes to it, which don't come through in this mix as much due to the lime/coconut pairing. It gives some complexity to the mix but also helps build the cigar.
Cured: This is a good cigar type tobacco. A good base to build on
Lime Wedge: Toned down compared to lime. You get a tad more twang, more natural lime flavor with a slight bit of rind. The rind is hidden so only the natural lime flavor comes through. Pairs with coconut very well.
Coconut: used over sweet coconut because I wasn't looking for a super sweet tobacco. This coconut is also a little more natural. Similar to the lightly sweetened meat in the coconut, almost slightly toasted. It pairs well with the natural lime wedge.
The lime has a tendency to fade. I recommend this to be vaped within a week. If you are gonna let it steep add another .2 or .4 of it and then let it sit for a while, as the line will be over powering in the beginning.
Another Flavorah only recipe
This was inspired by LaLa's Guanabana yogurt smoothie drink and https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/14191#batido_de_guanabana_by_deejay_mills . If you haven't tried that recipe, you should. It's fantastic and a recipe I always go back to! This was one of the easiest all FLV recipes for me. Their tropical flavors are some of the best and this recipe just fell into place. The guanabana in this smoothie is rather subtle, but it blends into the creams and yogurt very well. I get more pineapple and coconut than anything else.
Give this at least 7 days. The cream and coconut will blend with the yogurt and soften some of the sharpness. Once that happens, the Guanabana and other fruit pulls to the front, leaving you with a nice creamy exhale
Guanabana - This flavor is and has been one of my favorites for the last year. So much going on. You get a cross between mango and pineapple with an almost banana cream back note. I needed to use this a bit higher to cut through the cream and yogurt.
Soursop - Soursop brings some of the same qualities as guanabana but is a touch darker/ muskier with hints of coconut. There is also some tartness that kind of reminds me of a Granny Smith apple.
Greek Yogurt - This is obviously the yogurt part. I know this isn't everybody's cup of tea. But, when used properly, you can bring out a very deep creaminess with just a touch of that "twang" to know this is a yogurt.
Pineapple - I added this just to give a touch more tropical feel to the overall profile. I get a sweet pineapple juice from this one. But it has very deep and darker feel, that seems to play well with creams.
Cream - This is here to help the Greek Yogurt from becoming too sour and bring this into more of a smoothie. It's a very neutral cream that is adding a lot of the texture.
Coconut - One of the best coconut flavors on the market. This is not only adding a touch of coconut, but also adding to the overall creaminess/ mouthfeel. It's super strong! I used it at about 1 drop per 20ml.
Sweetness - Reading the label of this smoothie drink, it says they use Stevia leafs as the sweetening agent. FLV Sweetness is made with Stevia. So this was an obvious choice. This seems to get sweeter the longer you let it steep. This has been my go-to sweetener lately. Not only do I think it plays better with creamy vapes, it also won't gunk your coils.
Optional - Maybe the idea of a warm yogurt vape doesn't appeal to you. Try adding .5% FLV Ice or the cooling agent of your choice.
