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 floral forward vape for the summer, with some dark floral spices and bright fruit to lift it up towards the end.
What to do, oh what to do.
I don't know
There's Nothing to do, oh nothing to do,
Yet so many things to do...
What to do, oh what to do,
There's Nothing I want, nothing I want to do.
What to do, oh what to do,
There's so many things I need to do,
but nothing that I can do.
What to do, oh what to do,
There's so many things, too many things,
But maybe I can do.

Suggested Soundtrack: Chariot, by Beach House
Recommended Drink: Lime, Seltzer, Wodka, Cactus Pear (or other bright fruit)
This goes against my usual mixing style where I love to take a reference from real life and recreate it into vape form. Guanabana or soursop seems to have some medicinal benefits. Never actually had soursop pudding but it is a thing apparently.
If there was a medicine that cured a spectrum of illnesses this is what I'd like it to taste like
I am a pot user, and I strongly believe in its medical properties. I use thc and cbd to treat pain, mild insomnia and hypertension. My wife also uses CBD to treat her anxiety and I must say that it seems to have helped more then her prescription junk.
FLV Soursop very much like their guanabana but to me has an earthy muskiness to it. The way I see it is, Guanabana is like a finished commercial product of guanabana and soursop is ripping a guanabana off a tree in Puerto Rico and eating it. Guanabana is very acidic heavy which is where the "sour" comes from. Earthy plus acidic brings me to next ingredient.
FLV Yakima Hops, this flavor reminds me a lot of the terpenes that I come across in my THC use. Citrusy, piney and earthy all my favorite characteristics of some medical herb. In vape form it lends a refreshing and interesting mouthfeel. This ingredient is great with tropical fruits IMO.
The tiny amount of coconut plus custard and pudding is what makes up the cream/pudding base.
Honeysuckle was added to this recipe early on because it was the only thing i had close to floral. Turns out I dropped down the % and it instead acts as an "enhancer" to that tropical fruit.
Im interested to see if anyone enjoys this like I do
Concrete River named me "Lord of the Custard Apples" thats when I realized maybe I should throw this on ATF.
Tony would often mix Lola her signature drink before her show, the Copabanana... Lola didn't like to be drunk before her performance so he'd mix this drink for her virgin style. But after Tony got shot and her career went into the toilet she became a drunk and would drink this blend in remembrance of Tony with a healthy dose of vodka in it. You can vape Lola's drink while you listen to the iconic song and transport yourself to Rio while dancing around your kitchen.
This recipe is missing one ingredient from the list and when it gets added to the database I will update the recipe, but for now I will list it here.
FA Blood Orange 0.65%
You'll get banana aroma on one inhale and Pink Guava and Soursop on the next, this flavor is ever changing as you vape it. Sometimes the banana will taste just a bit smoky too, even though there is nothing smoky in this flavor. The Pink Guava dances between that guava note and a pink grapefruit flavor blending with the blood orange citrus notes. When freshly mixed the blood orange is very much in front, but it mellows out after about 4 days. If you like the stronger orange flavor I would suggest boosting it up to 1% or 1.25% to have a more orangey note. The touch of sour wizard adds a hint of tangy to balance out the sweetness, but FLV Sweetness is not in your face sweet, it is there just enough to make this seem like a natural fruit sweetness. If you want a much sweeter version, you can add a different type of sweetener, but I wouldn't suggest going much higher than 1.25% on FLV sweetness, as it can start to cause muting. A little EM could also be added if you need it sweeter, but to be honest, I think it is the perfect level of sweetness to mimic a virgin blended fruit drink. The Polar Blast gives it a nice healthy dose of coolness, but you could increase that up to 0.5% if you want a blast you in the face cold drink.
I've been vaping this non-stop for 2 days now and I will probably keep vaping it until I finish off this 120ml that I mixed and I'll be mixing another 120ml to have in rotation. It is very good.
I didn't do anything special for this to steep, just shook it good and let it sit for 3 days. I did test it shake and vape and once each day, but the flavors aren't quite right freshly mixed, and get kind of weird on day 2. By day 4 the mix is pretty set in but the blood orange will continue to decrease in intensity over the course of 7 days. After day 7 there hasn't been much change in the way it tastes.
I generally do all my mixes at 70% VG but this one I went a little higher with the VG just to see how it works. You can by all means go lower than 85% VG and the flavor will not suffer. You could probably go higher on the VG, but you may need to adjust the percentages a little bit, adding in just a touch more flavor for full max VG. If you suffer with muted tastes, you may want to try a small sample of this to start with, as the percentages may be too low for those with muted tastes, but it doesn't hurt to give it a try low to see how it works. If you can't taste it, it may need to be doubled on all flavoring components to keep the profile the same but just increased intensity.
