Moist, juicy and delicious. Ripe tropical Jackfruit and Mangosteen up front and Apricot nectar out the back. Add a splash of vanilla cream and a twist of dragon fruit to get everyone feeling friendly and you've got one hellava toe curling vape. Add 3 drops of super sweet per 30ml, it needs it and it creates it, this is supposed to be nectar of the gods, don’t upset your maker.
This is a play on a Pineapple Sorbet that adds some smooth topicality as well as a thick ICE
One of the recipes that you can increase for more flavor

hashslingingslashur suggested adding "a fruit like strawberry, pineapple, or maybe some lime" to his delicious Jango recipe, which is worth a mix on its own but seems especially well-suited for use as exotic tropical base to build on. I've been playing around with some combinations of Jango and other fruits off and on and this is the first one worth sharing. Sweet, ripe mango with bright, juicy watermelon.
A Pina Colada with a strong coconut balanced by bright acidity from lime and pineapple, and a light floral touch finish from hibiscus. Sticky sweet and full-flavored.
FA Coconut, TPA Coconut Candy, TPA Coconut Extra
When in doubt, steal from the best and then ruin it. Originally this combination was wholesale lifted from ID10-T's If You Like Pina Coladas, but i've pushed the artificial coconut note up quite a bit. The goal was a strong, assertive coconut that toed the line on straight sunscreen. It's an aggressive coconut note, but I feel like it's balanced well by everything else going on here.
The floral part of the recipe. CAP's hibiscus reminds me of a floral take on the top notes of a pineapple, so I just kind of went with it. 1.5% is enough to make a noticeable difference, but not dominate any of the other flavors in play.
CAP Golden Pineapple, TPA Jackfruit
I wanted a juicier, instead of sharp or realistic take on a pineapple so I went with these two. For all of the canned weirdness, CAP Golden Pineapple is hella juicy, and TPA Jackfruit helps to fill that in further and sweeten the pineapple note up a bit.
A twist of citrus to brighten everything up. I went with INW Lime because it is the best ever for everything. But seriously, I like how sweet and bright it is for beverage type vapes.
FA Oba Oba
Subtle vanilla, cream soda kind of flavor that fits really with the creamy coconut and juicy pineapple. Also helps to give the mix more texture and cut some of the syrupy sweetness.
The cream, as far I'm concerned. Nice and thick but not too sweet or dense. Also helps to tone down some of the acidic brightness from the pineapple and lime.
The inspiration, a work of short fiction:
Her voice cuts through your overfed nap, startling you awake on your plastic poolside lounger.
"Are we doing okay over here?"
Her white hospitality uniform comes into focus against a rich blue sky. She's pretty, but she looks impatient. Her hips are slung to one side, and the pen she's holding in her right hand looks poised to drive itself clear through the notepad she's holding in the left.
Annoyed by your obvious disorientation, she repeats herself subtly slowing down and enunciating each syllable like you may actually be stupid instead of suffering from a mild form of sunstroke and an overzealous attack on the continental breakfast.
"Are we doing okay over here? Can I get you something to drink?"
Her eyes catch yours and, for a second, it doesn't seem to matter that you're here with your family. You manage to stammer out that you'd like a Pina Colada, a decision you instantly regret. You could swear you see a glimmer of derision in her hazel eyes, like she expected more from the overweight, sunburned Adonis sprawled out under a languid tropical sky.
Forcing a smile, she assures you that your drink will be right up as she pivots on her heels and unhurriedly walks back to the budget resort's version of a tiki hut. She looks like a goddess from here, her chestnut hair kicked up by a sweet floral breeze, leaving the smell of hibiscus and suntan lotion in her wake.
She smells like you imagined those girls on the Hawaiian Tropic posters smelled, all sweet flowers and thick coconut. Those posters got you through high school, sulking about whatever JV level heartache laid on you that week by another sweet girl with the good sense to stay away from insecure teenage dickheads.
She's laughing now, with the handsome dirtbag pouring drinks behind the bar. He's graceful, but it's all wasted effort. He grabs the Pina Colada mix in one hand, and the opaque sludge seeps artlessly between the ice filling the blender carafe. The rum comes after that, studiously measured out to the drop in an almost comically small shot glass. A short burst from a blender, a sad looking lime wedge and she's got your drink in hand and walking towards you.
She looks tired. She looks like she's trying to talk herself into coyly smilingly and performing the same disheartening song and dance she does for every middle aged guy beached poolside.
You are just another flabby source of tips, one of the thousands that will appraise her solely as a source of amusement in a comfortably mediocre life.
She gets paid to do this, and she gets tipped extra to offer the escapism of a potential tropical fling to reassert whatever primal masculinity these guys are convinced their 2.3 kids and demanding wives are somehow subverting.
She gets tipped to make you forget about the way you cried when your wife finally accepted your marriage proposal, when you felt like all of that loneliness from years of chasing women who only tolerated you was blasted away by your wife's kind eyes and honest enthusiasm for spending her life with you.
She gets tipped to make your forget about that day in the hospital when your first daughter was born, and the wonderment of how someone so grievously flawed, petty, and small could help produce something so heartbreakingly beautiful.
It's the service industry. It's escapism.
It's a transaction, and now she wants to conclude it.
She wants your room number, but it's just somewhere to charge the drink.
You tip the three bucks you have left in your wallet, hidden under a wadded white towel at the side of your increasingly uncomfortable plastic recliner. The transaction ends, she turns to go, and you take a sip while you luxuriate in the scent of her suntan lotion and the hibiscus carried on the gentle breeze. It's not a great drink, but you can't beat the view.
CAP Sweet Lychee & TFA Lychee.
Great Lychee combination.. Cap sweet has a sweet syrupy/sugary/juicy vibe but It lacks some of the tropical spice I love in a lychee. To cure this I have added 1% TFA Lychee. That's as much as I could do without the mix sliding off the florals cliff, TFA Lychee tends to go floral on your ass after a steep..
TFA Jack Fruit.
Its such a wonderful tropical flavor with notes of cactus, feint banana and I even get a little pineapple in there somewhere. I like the creamy quality and I just had a feeling this may go well with the lychee. I used Dragon fruit initially, but contains too much triacetin so it melds the flavors too much and ended up muting all the flavors.
FA Fuji & FA Lemon Sicily
Fuji was added to give the mix a nice fruity body and FA lemon Sicily really helps brighten the profile as a whole and really makes the profile pop.
CAP Sweet Strawberry
Sweet strawberry lends depth and sweetness whilst not being prominent in the flavor profile. I would have much rather have used strawberry ripe but I am fresh out. Ripe mutes significantly on the steep which would have been ideal for this recipe.
Koolada and lychee in my view does not play well. But at this low percentage it has a negligible effect and it just cools the mix down enough to keep it from tasting warm and soggy.
Lychee and Jackfruit doesn't stand up to mints very well in general. I feel they both have have light nuisances which is easily masked by additives and I want those to be present in this recipe. At 0.15 it sit lightly on the profile and just adds a nice complexity and summery vibes to the mix.
There is a slight waxiness - it is characteristic of TFA dragon fruit and TFA Lychee. It dies down after a short steep (1 day)
I'd love to hear your thoughts
Simple, sweet, exotic. Add a fruit like strawberry, pineapple, or maybe some lime.
This is definitely an exotic fruit base to build on but delicious and dare I say excellent on it's own.
FLV mango is a smash hit on its own at 3%. One of my new favorite flavors for sure.
TPA Jackfruit by itself tastes like a tropical fruit similar to mango but also has a juicy fruit bubble gum vibe. I would not say this mix tastes like bubblegum though just a delicious mango vape. I use jackfruit at 3% sometimes but 2% has been my preferred level.
Keeping with the simple fruit blends for the spring/summer!
I have two recipes to which I always fall back to. This is the other one.
This was the love child of getting tired to unbearable throat hit from fruit vapes. I decided to combine the softest fruits I knew TPA - Strawberry (ripe), TPA Banana Cream and TPA Jackfruit. Golden Pineapple came in later, because it's not harsh at these percentages and fits like a glove in here, and vanilla Custard was the last nail to the flavor coffin. I fiddled around with the ratios (and you can too), but these percentages make the most pleasing balance to me.
Pineapple can go up to 3% before accumulating annoying throat hit.
Jackfruit is perfect at 2%
Banana Cream works at 2-3%
Strawberry (ripe) at 4-5.5%
Vanilla custard to taste, but over 1.5% imparts a custard taste and can make the vape too thick and sweet. Under 0.5% and you'll just be better without.
This is a familiar flavor profile to many, nothing new. Strawberry, banana and something tropical. It's sweet, smooth and delicious. The Jackfruit makes this the amazing vape it is. These are all the notes you need:
TPA Jackfruit - The best tropical flavor I've tried, and the star of this recipe
TPA Banana Cream - Delicious and creamy
TPA Strawberry (ripe) - Sweet and soft
CAP Golden Pineapple - Fruity top note
CAP Vanilla Custard V1 - Perfect thickening agent
So I'll start by saying IDK WTF a Jackfruit is, but it sounded interesting. I tested this at 5%. It's got an exotic flavor to it; almost reminds me of something you might find in the same family as a cherimoya, or a more exotic melon like papaya. The flavor is a little light, but it is very smooth and has a nice little bit of sweetness to it, so I imagine this will be good for mixes to add a bit of a tropical or exotic element.
