A simple creamy vanilla coffee.
FLV Biscotti is the base coffee note - the INW Shisha and French Vanilla Ice Cream are meant to be the main vanilla notes but a small percentage of FLV Cream and FA Custard premium give this more body while adding the McCafe/Tim Hortons coffee feel.
3 days max steep IMO but good on the shake.
This is a relatively popular ice cream combo in Northern Europe, elderflower has been used here for decades (centuries maybe?), mainly as a spice to cover up the offnotes in moonshine, but it has also made its way in to ice creams, cordials and candy.
You might call this a lazy mix, and indeed it is. But as the vanilla is a main component here, there is no better vanilla ice cream base than the one by @eyemakepizza. It's elegant and tasty, and by adding the elderflower it gives a new interesting dimension to that rich vanilla yummyness.
FLV Elderflower is an amazing flavor that works well with both creams and fruits.
A Co-worker put me up to this. His "favorite juice of all time" is called the Strawberry by Drip wich. Traditionally commercial juice, and cloning aren't really my thing, but I agreed to take a crack at the profile. I've no desire to actually clone the original, but the profile was at least potentially tasty so, why the hell not?
The Ice cream base here is shamelessly stolen from @eyemakepizza. I know it's not going to be the one in a commercial juice, but I wanted to make this decadent without falling into oversweet, and the ben and jerry's esque rich creamy concoction the pizza man put together is perfect for that.
The waffle base is pretty straightforward, both TFA belgian and FW waffle have holes in their overall profile. neither is quite right on their own, but by their powers combined you end up with a pretty accurate and tasty rendition of a lightly vanilla'd and slightly maple'd up waffle. maybe not as fluffy as a real Belgian waffle, but for the purposes of a breakfast treat being used as a sandwich around some ice cream and strawberry syrup it works quite well.
The strawberry combo is simple, INW shisha strawberry is a syrupy mess, strongly reminiscent in my mind of nestle's strawberry syrup. To boost that up, and give it a bit of body without venturing off into a full on strawberry Red touch works quite well to bring some balance to the whole ordeal.

I'm a huge fan of "Viserion" by @ID10-T, it's by far the juice I have vaped the most and always make sure to have 60ML ready to vape. So needless to say, I'm a sucker for the blueberry ice cream profile. I'm also a huge fan of @eyemakepizza 's vanilla ice cream trinity, it's just ice cream perfection. For this recipie I took his amazing ice cream base, adjusted it slightly to work with the blueberry combo I'm using here.
VT Bilberry Ripe is my new favourite blueberry flavor, even though it's more of a blueberry syrup than the actual berry, it fits perfectly for an ice cream recipie.
JF Blueberry is another fantastic blueberry flavor that unfortunately has been overlooked. It is very similar to FA Bilberry in that sense that it brings that authentic blueberry tartness, but it's a lot sweeter, and works perfect in combination with VT Bilberry Ripe.
FLV Boysenberry is used very low here just to give the other blueberries a more well rounded yummy taste and to further enhance the syrupy flavor.
FE Lemon Just a touch of lemon here as a contrasting flavor to both make the blueberries pop and the vanilla taste even better.
LB Vanilla Ice Cream / TFA Vanilla Swirl / HS French Vanilla Ice Cream aka the "Ice Cream Trinity" by @eyemakepizza is slightly adjusted to make it work with the rest of the mix.
WS-23 works very well here to give it the real cold ice cream feel. If you're not used to WS-23 I'd suggest starting at 0.25 - 0.5%.
JF Blueberry can NOT be subbed for any other blueberry. If you really want to mix this but don't have it, just leave it out and up FLV Boysenberry to 1%. It won't be the same blueberry flavor, but it won't be bad at least. I do highly suggest you grab JF Blueberry though, it's a fantastic flavor.
This recipe was revised 2019/06/26
TFA Vanilla Swirl upped to 3% (was 2.5%)
LB Vanilla Ice Cream lowered to 4% (was 6%)
I feelt that it became a bit too heavy both on the cream and berries after a bit of steeping. The changes makes it much more well rounded.
Super simple(and unoriginal), I know, but I just had to share. I used eyemakepizza's ice cream trinity and added THE BEST strawberry combo, Inw shisha strawberry, and Tpa sweet strawberry. This strawberry combo is super bright and delicious, and of course I added super sweet to enhance the strawberries. I am using a Hussar legacy single coil rda with a .24 NI80 Alien, and a QP juggerknot mini single coil RTA with a .24 NI80 3core fused clapton.
Profile - Creamy Pistachio Ice Cream with Chunks of Pistachio.
Pistachio was the FOTW, Odie gave me the idea of taking the FOTWs and throwing them into The Ice Cream Trinity to see what happens. I didn’t have any Pistachio flavors on me at the time, so I jumped on BCF and ordered TFA Pistachio and WF Pistachio Cream. At the same time that I had whipped up a V1, @ID10-T messaged me asking how I felt about making a Pistachio Ice Cream. Apparently along with being a flavor Guru he’s a mind reader too. Now the pressure is on to get this right.
Version 1 – I started with The Ice Cream Trinity as the base. My SFTs of TFA Pastachio and WF Pistachio Cream were promising. I went with 5% TFA Pistachio and 2% WF Pistachio Cream. This was a really solid starting place but the dairy side of WF Pistachio Cream was drowning out all the work TFA was putting into the mix.
Version 1.2 – With some bullshitting with @staybert about this, he said after talking to @shyndo he went balls to the wall 8% TFA Pistachio and it worked out gloriously. It just needed something to round out the flavor being that high. TFA Vanilla Swirl already being in the Trinity covered that nicely. I dropped the WF Pistachio Cream to 1% hoping to still be able to grab the awesome flavor from it but not bring to much dairy to the table. Still, drowning under cream.
Version 2 – I took a new approach with this one and dropped the WF completely. Can it be that simple? 8% TFA Pistachio plus the Ice Cream? Not so much, it was a big improvement from V1 but I still wanted more of a pop from the nut.
Version 2.1 & 2.2 – Next attempt was to focus on the actual nut aspect. I went two different ways with this one. One version with .25% TFA Acetyl Pyrazine and one with .5% FW Hazelnut. Obviously FW Hazelnut has a bit of a milky/dairy side to it, but I was hoping keeping it down low enough would bring the nut with out the milk. V2.1 was just what I was looking for! V2.2….meh. Was good, but back to square one with too much dairy. Acetyl Pyrazine was they key for this for sure. .25% wasn’t doing exactly what I wanted so I bumped it up .5% and set it aside to steep. Came back to it a week later and it was fantastic!
Version 2.1 Tweaks – I was super happy with where the recipe was at but just for shits and giggles I wanted to throw a couple things at it and see what happened.
WS23 @ .5% - It was good, mimics the cold punch you get when you take a bite of ice cream. However, I agree with @ID10-T the cold is funky with the nut, and I feel it distracts from everything else. So scratch that.
FA Pistachio @.5% - Nope nope nope. Took this in a weird, dry, almost roasted direction.
So instead of going insane, and trying to fuck with something that was already delicious I settled on Version 2.1. The only other thing I’m possibly going to try is adding a bit of FLV Pistachio because I’ve heard its dead on authentic Pistachio which should work really damn good here.
LB VIC, HS FVIC, and TFA Vanilla Swirl - These make up the delicious Ice Cream Base. The Vanilla Swirl also helps round out the high percentage of TFA Pistachio.
TFA Pistachio - Well, this is kind of a given. A purely delicious and versatile Pistachio flavor. The absolute star of the show.
TFA Acetyl Pyrazine - I used this to boost up the nut aspect of TFA Pistachio up and over the Ice Cream.
All and all, give this a good week steep and enjoy!
A delectable, thick and creamy pear and ice cream frulata.
A delicious blended frulata (or ice cream based smoothie) using a (relative) newcomer in the pear category.
Molinberry managed to create something which only 2 other flavor houses have ever managed to do...create a pear flavor which actually tastes like pear! Many have tried, most have failed but a savior is here in the form of Shape up Pear! It is an all-encompassing true, authentic, natural pear: skin, flesh, grittiness and all!
This semi-sweet, fresh pear accurately represents the best bits of a ripe pear with ease and, I suspect, will become the natural go-to pear for many a mixer. I bolstered the (delicate) pear note with a touch of FA Pear to make sure it kicks through our frulata base, which can easily dominate less robust flavors.
The milkshake base is given a smoothie twist with a dollop of yoghurt to cut through the sweetness by adding a smidgen of tartness, which balances the sweetness of both the pear and milkshake base alike. The milkshake base, penned by @Freshepies, is simply the very best milkshake base around - thick and creamy vanilla ice cream blended to absolute perfection.
Give this baby at least 5 days for the creams to meld and enjoy!

My profile pic was chosen for this weeks Mixen vixens show so I felt compelled to mix the profile as well.
I went with WF vanilla Ice cream because its a nice creamy vanilla ice cream, and I typically grab LB vanilla ice cream so I wanted to change it up.
HS French vanilla Ice cream because its delish!
The Ice cream cone uses WF sugar cone and FA cookie to attempt to give some more texture
FW Butterscotch Ripple and FA carmel for the drizzle and WF Honey roasted peanuts for the finishing touch.
This mix in my opinion needs a week steep for the cone to taste right, the creams and the Peanuts to come thru.
Feel free to omit the sweetener, but I feel it helps contribute to the recipe.
