Inspired by God's Milk, but more refreshing and light-weighted strawberry milk. I wanted it to be light so it can be all day vape. Fresh cream and a little amount of VBIC gives just the right amount of milk flavor. The rest of the recipe is just a mix of different strawberry flavors with dragonfruit to prompt the strawberry.
OK to shake and vape. You get more of the fresh cream and milk. But after steeping for 2+ weeks, everything just melded and a bit of candy-like sweetness pops up.
Just started mixing less than two months and only playing with limited flavors in my hand. This recipe is my current favorite.
The TEA: VT Jasmine Green Tea makes up the bulk of our tea base. It's got brilliant green notes and subtle Jasmine that are excellent on their own, but since they'll be mixed with some strong competitors I've decided to bulk that base up with a little FA Black Tea to boost the tannic/tea base and some additional Jasmine from FA to create a strong over all tea base. These 3 together in this combination make an excellent tea base with room for fruit or any other additives.
The Melon: FLV Wild Melon is a brilliant melon mix that never dissapoints. The downside to it is that when you take it up to 1-2% it starts to overpower more delicate flavors like our jasmine. So I've left it down at .5% and boosted the sour/melon notes with FLV Sour Apple. You could likely use FA Fuji here in it's place if you don't have FLV Sour Apple, but I really like the way FLV Sour Apple interacts with FLV Wild Melon. Over all you get a sweet, mixed melon overtone to the tea base.
Sweetener: Sucralose works here if you don't keep Erythritol handy, but the earthy sweetness of Erythritol works incredibly well with tea. It's a fair bit weaker than traditional sucralose, so I've settled at 2% here to keep things nice and sweet.
Adapted from MikeC's killberry yogurt:
This adaptation was done because I didnt have FA yogurt, and didnt like creamy yogurt, so I stuck with flv greek yogurt. After I had made this recipe several times I started to make some minor improvements, and tinkered with it a little bit. Swapped out cap sweet strawberry with JF and RF(SC), added erythritol, and added HS FVIC to accentuate the tpa VBIC. The flv greek yogurt might seem a little high but trust me, it works, and it doesnt bring any off/sour notes.
I havnt tried the original, but this is my favourite recipe of all time and so I had to post it.
If you dont have RF SC strawberry just omit it. If you want it to be strawberry forward, instead of a mixed berry note, then up the RF SC strawberry 1%. One of the amazing things about this recipe though is that all the fruits mix together to make something altogether new, so too much strawberry can make it lose what makes it unique.
The original uses cap sweet strawberry (and you can too) but I started out using 3% JF strawberry and it was amazing so I didnt bother trying it with cap.
HS FVIC isnt essential, definitely try it without if you dont have it.
Heres the original description:
DIY'r mix. I have been trying for months to clone Kilo Kiberry Yogurt. I have come to the conclusion that some of the flavorings may not be available to consumers. I have tried different manufacturers FA,FW,CAP,FLV,TPA etc, to no avail.
I have come to this recipe, which I believe beats Kilo Kiberry Yogurt, and believe me at 120 tries I gave up on Kilo Kiberry Clone. I did come up with this recipe and let me tell you, I believe it is WAY better than Kilo Kiberry Yogurt. This is a very sweet creamy yogurt that you have come to love with Kilo flavors.
Yogurt (FA) and Creamy Yogurt (CAP) blend so wonderfully together, many people (including myself) do not like CAP creamy yogurt as a standalone, but with FA Yogurt mixed in, they are Amazing together.
Dairy Milk (TFA) - This really takes away any pungent taste to the yogurts and gives them a creamy milky smooth taste, this is a must for these Yogurts to play nice together.
Bilberry (FA) and Boysenberry (FLV) - These two flavors at low percentage (Bilberry a bit higher) gives such a nice sweet flavor, and with the Sweet Strawberry (CAP) following behind it, the flavors help each other so much, blending all the berry flavors just right.
Cotton Candy Circus (TPA) and Marshmallow (FA) - Cotton Candy Circus standalone tends to have a chemical taste with it, but with the marshmallow really brings out the sweet sugar flavor and removes that chemical after taste. With the berry notes, the flavor gives a sweet but mild tart flavor, and the yogurts blended with it give a candy creamy flavor. This is what Kilo kinda has in it, and this actually taste even better. Trust me!
Kiwi (FA) - The Kiwi just helps to kick the berrys up a notch, as you notice in Kilo Kiberry there is not much Kiwi, I believe it is in their flavor to help kick the tart flavour up a notch.
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (TPA) and Butter Cream (CAP) -This was the hidden ingredient that helped to give a smooth creamy butter flavor not buttery, but creamy. This really tied a lot of the flavors together and helps to keep things smooth.
EM (TFA) - This is just to mellow the flavors down, do not use more than 1%, this also is important because it keeps the after taste of the PG/VG from being a pasty type flavor in your mixes.
Guys! I worked hard and bought tons of flavors to work out the Kilo Kibery, but I just could not get the exact flavour, but I ended up with this and it by FAR kicks Kilo Kiberry butt. I love this MORE than theirs. I wanted to share since I spent sooo much money on Kilo Kiberry and wanted something I could enjoy as much.
Please Make sure you let this steep a couple weeks. You can shake and vape and it is VERY good, but I promise it doesn't come close to as good as it gets after a week. ENJOY!
"Jill's Kiss(Violet Green Tea Ice Cream)"
She's beautiful, she's exciting, and she's totally clueless to how you truly feel about her. Her name is Jill. And this is what it would taste like to finally kiss her...
TFA VBIC was used instead of Capella because I wanted vanilla creaminess. FA Vienna Cream was added more for its' texture than its' vanilla.
FW White Chocolate & TFA Vanilla Swirl add an extra creamy & thick layer to the ice cream. Vanilla Swirl can't be beat when added to VBIC. This isn't Breyer's after all.
FA Violet is fantastic and a very underused flavor. It's absolutely delicious with a floral backnote. (This represents the soft petal-like quality of her lips).
FE Green Tea is THE best representation of Matcha Green Tea ever created!. No other brand's concentrate would have pulled off this sensual and intriguing combination like Flavor Express!
... and after that first kiss, her sweetness lingers. Enter Erythritol.
I love this as a shake 'n vape, though it really gets creamy after 2-3 days. And even creamier after 7 days. Also, I purposely omitted adding Koolada or Polar Ice, but feel free to add either if you prefer. I found the coolness to be too much of a distraction to the delicate flavor balance of this mix.
So I absolutely love Cuprian, but I can only ever vape it on RTAs/RDAs because it clogs up coils so badly. Here is my coil friendly alternative.
TPA VBIC + HS FVIC is a match made in heaven. Really rounds out the VBIC giving it a more authentic, dense icecream flavour with a hint more dairy.
The chocolate could possibly be upped to 1.25% or 1.5% I reckon. If anyone tries it at 1.5% let me know. Oh and also MF flavours tend to get stronger and better after steeping, so if you find the chocolate a bit weak after a shake and vape just give it some time. Pretty good shake and vape anyhow.
The FLV creme de menthe is a bit icier than the FW and TPA versions, and has an inherantly chocolatey flavour so subbing it with FW creme de menthe is possible but not recommended. I much prefer Cuprian with FLV creme de menthe, and if you havnt tried the original with FLV creme de menthe then I highly recommend it. I probably prefer my version to the original, although im not sure if I prefer it to the original +FLV creme de menthe, il have to try them side by side.
FA meringue can be subbed for TPA, it doesnt really matter too much which one you use. And im sure the cap marshmallow could be subbed for FA or TPA versions. The CAP marshmallow I used in this was the OG version. If you only have the newest cap marshmallow, then sub for FA/TPA.
As the original called for sweetener I used 2% erythritol, as it doesnt gunk up coils. Im sure it would be dandy without it though, so dont stop yourself from trying this if youre missing the Erythritol.
"My Sweet Borg"
Based on the sexiest Borg in the Delta Quadrant-"Seven Of Nine". This is the 1st part of my Seven Of Nine/Borg Trilogy
Feel her pale, milky mounds & sweet vanilla nectar dance over your tongue. She will undoubtedly tease & tantalize you, and most definitely leave you wanting more. Many of us, at one time or another have desired to "make" Seven Of Nine. But up to now, none have mastered her unique perfection. Resistance, in this case, is indeed futile...
I enjoy this after a 2 day steep. But like all fine women... er, ELIQUIDS, "My Sweet Borg" improves with age!
"My Sweet Borg" Notes:
TFA Vanilla Swirl adds that "soft-serve" quality/creaminess I needed in this mix. It is my personal "go to" for all things milk, and was a huge asset in my "My Milk" clone awhile back. It was with that recipe I realized this concentrate's perfect milk base position in a recipe.
CAP Simply Vanilla I feel, is an extremely under-rated flavoring. This was used to boost the vanilla in Vanilla Swirl to a whole new level. And that's its' only purpose in this recipe.
FA Fresh Cream: Holy Mackerel! At 2%, this contributes to that extra thick, milky mouth feel that was missing.
FW Hazelnut: This adds a nice malty back note just to keep things interesting.
NN Erythritol: Originally, I had incorporated CAPs Super Sweet at the same percentage. But man....double-strength sucralose is a major coil-killer(why is life so unfair?). I then remixed this with Nude Nicotine's Erythritol. At the same percentage, I thought it wouldn't have been as sweet & would need to be boosted up in percentage. But as it turns out, this was a fabulous improvement to not ONLY my coils-but also my taste buds. And if you REALLY want to be adventurous, add 0.75% TFA Sweetener in addition to the Erythritol. Very sweet and I actually prefer it with both sweeteners.

My final piece working with the Flavor Monks Gin line this year, but with many more expected after new years is over!
I started with a grape base using both INW Grapes and FLV Grape. INW has a slightly candied finish, where FLV comes closer to grape juice. I wanted both of those qualities to show, so we started at equal parts both at 2.5% allows them both to shine without overpowering the other. Earlier versions I went lower and higher with the other but they just balance better at even ratios.
FLV Elderflower, if you've ever had a cocktail with St Germaine in it, you'll know this flavor straight away. A niche floral for most, but it's ideal for these sort of bright, herbal gin flavors. Brightly floral with a distinct elderflower flavor that you can't miss. A bit potent fresh, but just fine after 2-3 days steep.
FM OMGin: Hands down my favorite gin from their line. It's simply super versatile. At 3% it stands out just enough to cut through some of the thicker sweet notes in the grape base and support those light floral notes in the FLV Elderflower. FM OMGin has lovely bright juniper flavor, without the nasty cheap gin flavor I sometimes get from FA Gin. There's a dash of bitters/vermouth in the background, which makes it ideal for complex cocktail flavors.
Being a fan of sweet cocktails I added 2% Erythritol (5% in VG) in my final recipe, but it's super optional if you're into a more bitter/less sweet cocktail. In closing, here's
Reminiscent of an orange Mounds bar. Smooth, creamy chocolate covered coconut orange candy.
While trying to create a recipe for this contest, I was aiming for something unique for the season of Fall. More precisely, I was aiming for using the 'colors' of Fall as opposed to using Fall 'flavors'. Orange, brown and white achieve that color spectrum for me.
I wanted a relaxing vape involving chocolate as a subtle note. Possibly even a back note. And that, in the beginning, was all I was sure of. As I was considering my options, I reached to open a Mounds candy bar(one of my favorites since childhood). As I bit into it tasting the smooth chocolate, sweet coconut and a nearly imperceptible hint of cinnamon, I swooned and sunk back into my couch totally relaxed and chilled out. My senses immediately awakened. I've only tasted that faint cinnamon in Mounds(specifically) and often wondered if it was only in my imagination, as other people I've known can't taste it at all. At any rate, it hit me like a truckload of....coconuts(pun intended)! I wanted to make an orange flavored Mounds bar eliquid. And one as relaxing as I find eating a Mounds bar to be. I've never worked with orange flavorings EVER, so this would be a very challenging task for me. Truthfully, I can't even think of a time when I even purchased an orange flavored eliquid.
I was very pleased this turned out exactly as I wanted on only my second formulation. I find it extremely pleasing to my palate and I hope you will too. On the inhale I taste coconut most prominently with a light mandarin orange. On the exhale, I taste a light coconut, stronger orange, and smooth creamy milk chocolate mixed with extremely light cinnamon at the back end. I found myself immediately mixing up a larger batch as I knew my first batch would never last long enough for even a week's steep(due to the TFA DCC recommended steep time).
I usually find coconut flavorings to be very harsh. But I believe the TFA Ripe Strawberry flavor not only enhanced the creaminess of the coconut...it also, to my surprise, eliminated the harshness of the coconut that has always been a turnoff for me. The FA Fuji always provides that 'candy' aspect to any recipe whether you are looking for candy apple or just looking to "candyize" any particular flavor, which in this case, was the orange. Fuji just adds a sort of "buttercream" candy sweetness to my mix.
This contest was a total surprise to me, as I never(on the surface) would have thought to add Strawberry Ripe, CAP CDS, or FA Fuji to a recipe if I was looking to create an orange Mounds-like flavor. But when forced to use these bastard basket flavors, I was forced to think of how to make them work for what I was aiming for. And that's something I would have never done on my own. Yes, if told to use "any" 3 flavorings plus 3 other flavorings, I would have created my Orange Mounds bar. But I seriously/homestly doubt it would ever taste as good as this mix does. Without those basket flavors, my new ADV would have never been developed. Thank you all so much for making me come out of my linear comfort zone!!
7 day steep recommended, though I find it delicious after only 2 days!!
