I'm not one that really likes tropical fruits. To me tropical fruit flavors are over the top in your face bold, and combined with a somewhat, for the most part, unpleasant texture it ends up being just too much for this landlubber. I was somewhat amazed that I embarked on this recipe given my relative dislike of this 'genre' of food. I received a bunch of flavors from Flavorah of which one was Pink Guava. The aroma of Pink Guava is so intriguing that I was driven to find a recipe for it. I proceeded to scour the Internet looking for Guava recipes. The result of my query ended on a Mango, Guava, and Strawberry smoothie recipe that also incorporated Bananas and Coconut Milk as a base.
Off I went trying to get this together, and the results are quite amazing IMHO. While you can SNV this recipe, after a three to five days steep the banana cream really starts to fill out as a base.
FLV Mango is just a great all around Mango flavor. It may not capture all of the true Mango essence, but for a smoothie it really does the job. FLV Pink Guava is such a unique and aromatic flavor. I did not want to wander into the Grapefruit territory so I kept it low in this recipe. I can't really taste Strawberry flavorings that well, so I chose FA Juicy Strawberry and FA Red Touch at a level that is providing a tart natural Strawberry back note behind the Mango and Guava - others may find a more pronounced Strawberry flavor in the mix - sorry about my Strawberry muted olfactories.
For the base I chose FLV Sweet Coconut for the Coconut Milk along with a little FLV Cream to bolster the fullness. For the Banana I had to go with VT Banana Custard. This is such a smooth natural Banana flavor. After the steep it provides a very nice natural Banana addition to the vape. I also added just a few drops of FLV Coconut which increases the depth and creaminess to the Coconut Milk base. I know it is somewhat expensive, but it is so good that you really need to have it in your arsenal. If you don't have it you can probably leave it out, but a very rich aspect will be lacking.
When I vape this the initial exhale is that full creamy Banana with a slight hint of Coconut, and then that wonderful Mango, Guava, Strawberry mix settles on the palate that lasts for quite some time. This is one of my favorite recipes. It it is very rich, and if I over do it my palate can get worn out due to the bold flavors involved. I will also add that nicotine will alter the vape of this recipe quite a bit. I find that running between 1.5 to 2 mg/ml of freebase nicotine is best. You might be able to push the level more with Nicotine salts.
For the most part this recipe is complete, but I reserve the right to maybe tweak the percentages a bit. I have vaped this in both a single coil RDA and an RTA (the RTA leans toward the creamy banana, and the RDA toward the Mango-Guava) with excellent results, try it and let me know what you think.
[Update] I've been waffling on the overall percentages of this recipe between two 'final' versions that I have. The first version of this recipe I posted is quite strong, and is possibly too much flavorings if used in an RDA. I thought it would tame down in the steep, but it did not. The second version I have of this recipe reduces most of the flavor percentages down by 25%, and I find it a lot smoother in an RDA without sacrificing too much flavor. I reduced the FLV Mango, VT Banana Custard, and the FA Strawberries from 2% to 1.5%, the FLV Sweat Coconut from 1.5% to 1.25%, and finally the FLV Cream from 1% to 0.75%. I left the FLV Pink Guava, FLV Coconut, and Sweetener as they were.

So many yummy Mango's available in the DIY scene now. I have many favorites, and favorite combos. I find which Mango works the best depends on the profile you are creating.
For this recipe, I used FLV Mango, definitely one of my favorite, for a realistic mouth feel mango. Paired with this, is WF SC Island Mango, which is very sweet and tangy, similar to a citrus note, which is a note I was aiming for in this recipe along with a mango, so they paired together very well.
VT Forest Mixed Berries is one of my favorite mixed berry concentrates. And added to this is a touch of lime using WF SC Lime.
To create the smoothie, I used my favorite greek yogurt FLV Greek Yogurt and OOO Creamy Milky Undertone
This creates a delicious creamy Mango forward smoothie. Mixed Berry taste on the back end of vape.
Feel free to add sweetener to your liking.
This is delicious off the shake; however, better after 3 days.
Made For Mixin in the Kitchen episode on Mango
On the inhale you get the frozen yogurt with a slight sweet vanilla note that transitions to the mango/ pineapple and ends with a light cinnamon
Island mango is a Sweet meaty ripe juicy mango paired with flV mango to help hold that sweet ripe syrup mango with the frozen yogurt . There can be a slight floral off note and harshness from FLV mango that the frozen yogurt really helps to round out.
Sugarloaf Pineapple adds a nice sweet acid note that will be a back note in this mix
Frozen yougurt and Yogurt drink work to create the frozen yougurt base. The WF frozen yogurt is fantastic full creamy slight vanilla note with a light tart note, that needed to be pushed high here to really bring the creamy body. yougurt drink was added to provide a slight lemon note to add vibrancy and support some of the notes
golden syrup was added for some dark sweetness to contrast some of the top notes
rich cinnamon is an additive that works so well with mango and pineapple
Grape, Watermelon, and Mango!
Have you tried Grango 1-2-3 by AlfredPudding? No? Well go do it now. For real. Both versions are seriously amazing. I'll wait.
Here, I'll help https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/125500#grango_1_2_3_by_alfredpudding .
Welcome back! Anyway. Both variations of this deliciousness sparked a newfound love for grape in INW Grape. With Alfred's blessing, I wanted to do a spin off. I was looking through my flavors and Watermelon popped out at me.
Admittedly, LA Watermelon was my first try with this, but there's literally no better choice for it. The natural yet slightly candied watermelon of LA, compliments the "purple" flavor of INW Grape super well. All of that with a hint of Mango and its heaven. Other than that, 3 flavors and 6% of flavoring, there ain't all that much to say about it.....just mix it!
Now I understand, you'll look at this recipie, and think, whoa thats alot of flavours....
Each one has its own place to create the perfet fruit tea blend, with an extremely subtle mint feel.
It all started with a wonderful cuppa tea from a coffee house here in the uk. Primary ingredients being Apple, Papaya, Mint Leaves and Rose Petals.
The Tea smelt and tasted so good, I recreated it in a Vapable form.
HLQ Black Tea is Chefs Fab MIx Black Tea
If you have the concentrates to mix it up, let me know what you think.
MB Mango is Frandy Flavours mango
The FLV Guava is straight up grapefruit, and that's what I'm going for here.
The citrus notes are there as a bed for the grapefruit accent to lie on top of. The juicy lemon is a light sharp accent to bump up the grapefruit.
The mangoes are there as a second accent, but also to smoothen the sharper notes from the citruses
The orange cream can be left out if you don't have it. The mb juicy orange can be substituted for for capella's at 1%
The sweetener and WS23 is of course entirely optional.
I would give it 3 days for the fruits to blend and the citrus to settle.
