I wanted to do something tropical, and while going back through my notes I came across INW Cocopilada. The first thing I had written down was "very nice tropical blend of pineapple and coconut, reminiscent of a Pina Colada." Then right below that I had notes on INW Cherimoya which is a lovely flavor that screams tropical so I figured this was a perfect fit for what I was shooting for. There's notes of banana and pineapple in this, with a creamy richness most fruits just don't have.
For me, a mix has to be more than just a good flavor. It needs to match that profile when you actually vape it. Something like this I picture it as being thickened up from the banana, so I needed to build the body up a little more. Plus I like a dense satisfying vape!
TPA Banana Cream actually does a good job of this, and at 2.5% it gives this a nice richness and helps accent the banana notes I get in Cherimoya already.
Now, the only thing left to do is to sweeten up the coconut note and find a contrasting pineapple so it can stand out a bit more. I used TFA coconut candy only because it was a sweeter type coconut. That candied coconut helps it show up better in this mix. I tried a couple versions with FLV coconut and sweet coconut, but TFA just worked better for what I was going for.
FLV pineapple here was a pretty simple call. At 1% there's zero throat hit, and it adds a hint of tartness that helps stand up against the thicker banana. CAP golden pineapple is too sweet and it lacks bright top notes. When the majority of the fruits are base notes, I needed that pineapple to be bright so I didn't get buried.
This mix came out beautifully! It checked all my mandatory boxes to qualify as an ADV. From flavor to mouth feel this has it all.
You could add 1% of VT Light Rum if you want to give it a banana kissed pina colada vibe which is what I'm vaping right now and it's damn good. Or you could try adding your preferred coolant if you want to chill it, this works well there too.
This wasn't an overly complicated profile, but to get the body I wanted as well as getting certain notes to contrast one another was a bit tricky. It was fun to do though and all the testers were good.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have been, I'm due to mix another bottle now.
You can S&V this, there's no harshness or anything but I find it hits the best balance after about 3 days. Banana Cream usually needs a few days to settle down for me and get in it's position
Tres tropical= a kiwi and pineapple laced Tres Leches cake. I don't really think the ingredients need much explanation it's kind of obvious why I used what I did but here is short explanation. The tres Leches cake is the white cake and tres Leches fw. A tres Leches cake is a cream cake of sorts so my frosting mixture actually helps with the cream cake profile. My frosting is made with a combination of cream cheese icing, meringue, and vanilla whipped cream. It's a nice light frosting perfect for the profile. So the most obvious part is my fruit toppings I used a combination of kiwi, and pineapple flv and golden pineapple by cap. If you don't have pineapple flv just leave it out and boost the golden pineapple. Other than that I love this mix it's a delicious vape. A great fruity bakery for the summer time fun.. Enjoy!!
I used .35 flavorah sweetness. You can use or don't use whatever sweetener you prefer but this is what I used.
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.
A bright, hoppy pineapple with hints of pink grapefruit.
FLV Pineapple is a super clean, straight forward pineapple flavor. Accented by the FLV Jackfruit you get a little more juiciness and some super ripe fruit forward. This helps to balance the hops at such a high %. Hints of grapefruit provided by the always lovely FLV Pink Guava.
Creamy creme brulee in a hollowed out pineapple. Now that sounds good. So I made it in vape form or at liest what I think it should taste like because I haven't ever eaten this delectable dessert. Enjoy!! This is a recipe that needs to steep. Without it it won't taste right. I suggest a 7 day steep but I do think the ends justify the means this is worth vaping... I used real flavors creme brulee super concentrate it wasn't an option though. If you don't have Jack fruit just boost the pineapple a half a percent.
