Summer- To me it means time for the annual camping trip with fire and alcohol and food that can be cooked on a stick. All the best stories and ideas start with alcohol involved. This one would be the later. We had all the makings for a traditional smore on my last camping trip as well as the liquid ingenuity on tap. We also had Reese's peanut butter cups and bananas. Get where I'm going with this now? You would think the combo was thought up by someone under some other flammable influence.
Chocolate-peanut butter-banana smore
3% tfa peanut butter I get creamy generic peanut butter from this when the batch is a good one.
1% cap peanut butter brings the creamy peanut butter closer to the jif or Reese's type I know and love.
.25% flv milk chocolate this gives the Hershey's type milk chocolate syrup note to help give the melted milk chocolate taste of a smore.
2% tfa double chocolate clear while flv milk chocolate is good on its own right it can be a bully and we want some of that chocolate bar-not quite melted all the way taste.
3% fw graham cracker used this more than the usual 1% I tend to use it at to keep the crunchy Graham cracker present in this Uber smore.
2% tfa toasted marshmallow tgives you that perfectly even browned ocd compliant toasted campfire marshmallow taste.
3% tfa banana cream if you haven't tried putting sliced banana on a smore I recommend giving it a try. There isn't a plain ripe banana concentrate (that I've had to date) that doesnt get a "runty" note. This a treat and as such I want it to be candyish in terms of sweetness but creamy too to compliment the marshmallow.
1% .9% saline solution optional but I feel if you have any recipe with chocolate in it you'd be doing yourself a disservice without it.
.5% cap super sweet another optional one but the malic acid that it has and maltol tend to be another must have to help chocolate flavors.
Best after 5 days mainly due to the banana cream and peanut butter but surprisingly shake and vapeable.
I wanted to go with a recipe that said Springtime to me without going away from my mixing style. My mixes involve working mainly with creams, custards, cookies and fruits. So this is where I knew I needed to start.
FA Forest Fruit - I have mixed with this flavor before and find it a great mix of berries with notes of Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry, and Blackberry, to me this flavor is really fantastic. This flavor pairs well withmany different flavors. At 3% here it gives the perfect Amount of balance to let's the Berries really shine.
TFA Banana Cream- This was a tough one here as I wanted that nice banana flavor to mellow out the tartness of the fruits and add a nice texture of flavor that would pair well with the berry mix. At 2 % this does a great job As an accent to the berries without giving off that banana Runty taste and giving a nice banana flavor on the exhale.
FA Cream Fresh- I use this flavor often as it really adds a nice amount of creamy milkyness to any mix. At 2% this really made the recipe turn into a very nice refreshing cream base. This really adds some nice body to the mix. To make this a very nice banana berry smoothie.
This flavor taste good as a Shake n vape. Best after 5 days to really let the Fresh cream settle in with the rest of the mix.
If you ordered a banana milkshake and someone accidentally added a scoop of mint ice cream to it by mistake you would think you would be pretty pissed, right? I know I would. But you know what they could throw in there that no one could get angry about? Chocolate!
Think vanilla milkshake with chocolate-covered bananas blended into it. Mmmm. Chocolate. A girl's best friend and the most phallic of fruits make an orgasmic combination in this recipe made only from ingredients in the April 2017 Awesome Box.
TFA Banana Cream - This creamy banana is the heart of this banana milkshake, but is also easily substitutable and augmentable. Go bananas with it. Do you prefer LA's version or find that the two of them are better together than either alone? Substitute 4% LA Banana Cream for the 4.5% TFA Banana Cream or use 2.5% TFA and 2% LA. I have reason to believe the DIYFS Banana Cream would also work, but you're on your own for a % on that one. Do you crave a bigger, bolder banana? Add 0.75% HS Banana or 1.25% FA Banana. Want less Runty, more natural-tasting monkey food? Add the HS or FA and drop Banana Cream to 3.5%.
FA Cream Fresh/CAP French Vanilla - Milkshake cream base straight-up stolen from @mlNikon's "Here Come The Boys" for this... homage? Parody? Call it what you like, it works. If you like your shakes like you like your PAWGs, extra thick, supplement this with 2% TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream or for pepper tasters and other weirdoes, the same amount of CAP VBIC, and eat it with a spoon. Want to be able to slurp your shake through a straw without blowing an o-ring? Leave it be. It's good.
FLV Milk Chocolate - What an attention whore this Hershey's syrup flavor turns out to be! It might as well be practicing deep throating on longnecks at the bar. While it tastes fine for what it is up to 1% without getting weird, I had to back it down in version after version all the way down to 0.08% to keep it from steamrolling over everything else. If you're working on a recipe and you want Hershey's chocolate syrup to be a secondary note rather than the main flavor, allow me to suggest making a dilution or seriously stepping up your "half-drop by barely squeezing and then gently rubbing the nipple on the rim of the bottle" game.
FLV Sweet Coconut - There are only a few recipes that can't be improved by adding 0.25% Sweet Coconut. This isn't one of them. Here, it helps FLV Milk Chocolate taste less like Hershey's syrup and more like Magic Shell chocolate. Which, by the way, is something you can make at home by combining chopped milk chocolate and coconut "it's not just for lube anymore" oil and zapping it in the microwave.

A nice harvest berry with a smidge of banana cream and sweet cream. my current ADV.
My girlfriend tells me it's a but too tutti frutti for her, but i love it.
Good after a shake, but picks up that nice creamy note after a few days.
This recipe is not my set way to mix it. when i'm making this for myself i sometimes boost the harvest berry and sometimes the banana cream. so you can change it up however you want
This started off with a friend of a friend asking if I could make a clone of this when I moved away from years of 1 shot mixing and started buying proper flavours. I was given 10ml of a clone he had bought to get an idea of what I was aiming for. It tasted bad, so from research I set about remixing what I imagined it should taste like. I was just starting out in the world of full DIY so my flavouring choices were limited along with my experience but I think I came up with something pretty reasonable.
Banana Cream - (TPA). I tried a few banana flavours but wanted something that was light, sweet and creamy, not too realistic. This one seems to fit the bill and at 4% shines through as the main note.
Butterscotch & Butterscotch Ripple - (Flavor West). I love these two flavours. I find the combination keeps up that creaminess level and gives a nice rounded caramel/butterscotch base for that banana to sit on.
Caramel - (Flavor Art). Just a touch here to boost the Butterscotch's and add a bit more depth to that caramel base.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl - (Capella) I played around with various ratio's for with this one as some people are afraid of cinnamon. If your not a fan feel free to knock it down .5 or 1% but at 2.5% I personally find it shines through without overpowering the recipe.
Coconut - (TPA) A little back note I thought I detected in the clone sample i received to work off. It just sits nicely in the background to add a sneaky back note.
Meringue - (Flavor Art). This is just to add a bit more sweetness without adding any sweeteners and to try and pull everything together, add a bit of lightness, and tone down the cinnamon danish swirl a touch.
Vanilla Swirl - (TPA) The main vanilla base for all that lovely butterscotch, caramel, banana and cinnamon to sit in. I wanted to key the creamy vanilla base light so avoided using any heavy creams.
So that's my first recipe posted here. If you do mix it I'd love to hear your thoughts or suggestions on improving it.
C-Goat = Custard Greatest Of All Time affectionately dubbed Sea Goat a mythical beast often seen as the true symbol of the Capricorn. That is where the name ends and the profile begins. This is a strawberry and banana custard profile, starting up front with an authentic banana note followed by a thick, rich, and creamy strawberry base. Then finishes with sweet vanilla crust on the back end.
So about a year ago, I tried my hand at mixing up a recipe that was inspired by that Banana/Pineapple/Orange juice blend that Dole makes. I had made a few adjustments since then, and found that the base from a year ago was still the best. Here is the most current iteration. It's a great shake and vape, but a little separated. Give it two days, and it's all melded together into something inoffensive, consistent, and my favourite ADV when I get burnt out on bakeries and the "heavier" mixes in my arsenal.
CAP Sweet Tangerine / CAP Juicy Orange - here's the orange juice base. These two flavours are great together, but carry some strangeness straight out of the gate. Juicy Orange has a little waxiness to it if you push it too high, and 2% is right about the threshold on that. If you pick up on that waxy note, dial it back half a percent. After an overnight steep though, most of that off note gets pushed aside. What we end up with is a really wet and bright orange juice base.
TPA Banana Cream / LA Banana Cream - you already know this is my go to ratio for bananas. The touch of LA helps push the accuracy of the banana note, while the TPA carries it home with the creamy sweetness. The mouthfeel of these two in tandem help emulate the mouthfeel of the real-world counterpart of this recipe. That Dole juice is almost like the middle ground between juice and smoothie. It's thicker and smoother than a typical glass of juice, and these two concentrates help get that aspect going in the right direction.
CAP Golden Pineapple / TPA Pineapple - here's your pineapples, the TPA is around to really give that bite of tartness you want, it cuts through the sweets so well in this mix. The CAP Golden was a new addition to the recipe, and just really helps dial back on some of that battery acid note you get from TPA Pineapple.
FA Fuji / TPA Marshmallow - the extras in this recipe are what really make it, in my opinion. The FA Fuji helps emulate the fact that almost every commercial made fruit juice on the market has apple juice in it as a base. While Fuji doesn't inherently taste like apple juice, at this low of a percentage, you get the idea of it, while still having one of the best fruit emulsifiers we have available. The Fuji brightens up the oranges, gives some depth to the banana, and helps make the pineapples less one-dimensional. TPA Marshmallow is our sweetener, and helps add to that mouthfeel you get from the banana creams. Using TPA Marshmallow will push this recipe right into the realm of accuracy to the real fruit juice blend. Thick, creamy, and sweet.
TPA Koolada (OPTIONAL) - use to taste. If you like Koolada, it really helps this recipe come together. Without Koolada, it's still good, but adding a few drops just pushes it to a whole new level. Because, well, let's be honest, who the fuck likes drinking warm orange juice?
Crème Jeans....So good, it'll make you crème your jeans!
I was going after a cookie dough base though I didn't have a cookie dough flavoring. So I used INW biscuit, Cap vanilla cupcakeV2, and CAP vanilla custard to simulate the cookie dough. I think it's pretty close. I also wanted to add a side note. Instead of using chocolate for a chocolate chip cookie dough, I used banana and banana cream. I think it's a well balanced pairing, although unusual, with a cookie dough taste. Banana is not over-powering and that's the way I like it, hope you do as well :)
