After the miserably cold winter we have just had I wanted to make something summery, tropical and fruity. I was aiming to juxtapose the brighter, tarter fruit with the deeper, rich creaminess and I think I achieved that. This mix reminds me a lot of a Solero ice cream.
Coconut Custard - as well as adding some creaminess and coconut it has a distinct pineapple note which works nicely with the other fruits.
Tropical Gummy Candy - is a really nice, if a bit artificial, guava. It also adds a lot of juiciness.
Island Mango - really tasty mango, plus when combined with Tropical Gummy Candy it seems to give the mix a lovely syrupy feel. Kind of like a tropical fruit compote.
Lime - I only added a touch to cut through the rest of the fruits.
Passionfruit - adds a bit of tartness and adds to the tropical vibe.
Tahitian Vanilla Cream - I think it works well as it has a fruity sweetness to it already
Can SNV. I like to vape it before the Passionfruit starts to fade. But it's still tasty after that, just a bit less passionfruit.
Trying to build a light feel with a lot of creamy Pineapple and Coconut. Admittedly now this would have been better if I would have went down the pudding route but I'm new to mixing so sue me. I came up with a lot of variations of this that included Walnut and Roasted Pecans & Cream but this is the one I decided on because I like it. I tried to bring out the Pineapple more with Pineapple Baked but didn't like it at all. Tried Lime but that kept taking over and settled for Lemon Custard. which I think if you mix this you will agree accents it very close to the pineapple I was looking for. Special shout out to folkart who has been very patient with me and my learning curve on this recipe.
Beginning Mixer: Nothing comes out right. I hate myself. Why did I ever start mixing. I don't have a clue what I'm doing. Why don't I quit now. That's right because I'm always in pursuit of that one mix that I can look back on and say, yeah I did that.

This is from a request on a FB Group, they wanted a Coconut Milkshake with Caramel and Wafer. After vaping through 400ml since batch mixing a few different versions I thought I better release it as I have enjoyed it so much.
This is a dairy based milkshake just like I used to have as a child, a generous amount of Ice Crean blended into a pint of whole fat milk.
The milkshake base appears throughout with the caramel leaving a sticky and sweet mouthfeel with pleasant coconut accents and the wafer appearing right at the end of the vape.
The Milkshake base consists of LB Ice Cream for the ice cream part, a good ice cream on it's own but does nornally need a boost with another if using as an Ice Cream as this was to thicken and add more dairy to a milkshake this is fine on it's own here. After trying different %'s they were either too much ice cream or not enough to thicken 3.5% is the magic number just enough dairy boost and thickening without going into ice cream.
FA Milk at 1.5% gives us that creamy yet unmistakable full fat whole milk taste, higher than this makes it too thin and lower doesn't give the right consistency.
WF Coconut custard used here for the wonderful soft and silky coconut (no suntan lotion) as well as the thickening from the Custard part, this adds to the dairy and gives you a pleasing thick milkshake
FA Caramel was my first choice as a sweet and slightly sticky caramel 0.75% is enough without making it sickly however it was missing depth this is where WF Caramel Butter comes in.
WF Caramel butter combined with the FA gives this a lightly buttery sticky and syrupy caramel exactly like you'd get from a a fresh caramel.
WF Crispy wafer gives you the actual ice cream wafer slightly dark with a pleasing wafer taste and texture, taken up to 2.5% as any lower and it just disappears into the mix the texture is then boosted with JF Biscuit at 0.75% to ensure that this doesn't fade out.
Finally dessicated coconut is used to boost the coconut notes, this was chosen as it is a dry shredded coconut, this ensures that it doesn't sink into the mix too much like a creamy coconut
Those Fudging Nuts are at it again. This time in a lighter bakery flavor packed with nuts. Not like sweeten Pecans, which I love, but closer to a honey roasted type. I have tasted this recipe after four days of steeping and I thought it is pretty good for a lighter bakery vape. The White Fudge will fade over time and become more creamy, so I have read. I like the nut forward taste after four days. I may like it even more after a longer steep.
This is a Hail Mary. There is no picture for it because I don’t know what this would look like, but boy does it taste good.
WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough for a thick bakery texture.
WF Croissant for some buttery bakery.
WF Caramel Butter to counter the brightness of the fruit.
WF Coconut Custard to thicken the cream and add coconut.
WF Passionfruit for Passionfruit.
WF Sesame Candy for some god damn flare.
A damn delicious gooey pecan ice-cream! *WF coconut custard is very crucial here in this recipe and could not be subbed out a really great addition to the ice-cream, while not a custard to me it's a nice creamy coconut if used at low percentages and 0.5% is perfect here since I didn't want much of it.

IYSLPC = If You STILL Like Piña Coladas
Went into this hoping to improve on my old Piña Colada recipe from June 2016, which many people seemed to enjoy. Turned out to be a tougher job than anticipated, especially in balancing the pineapple and coconut. I think I succeeded, especially if you think that cold things should be cold. I definitely succeeded in making something just as good, with fewer ingredients. Here’s a little rundown of the whats and whys and why nots:
WF Coconut Custard - This is a poorly named concentrate. I don’t get any custard from it. Just a thick, smooth heavy cream with a little built-in coconut that doesn’t taste like suntan oil. The coconut tastes halfway between the coconut in Coco Lopez and the coconut in Malibu rum, but is light and needs another coconut to not get buried, which is where a touch of FA Coconut comes in. That more natural coconut flavor boosts the coconut and pulls it more in the coconut cream direction. FA Coconut is one of the few ingredients carried over from the original recipe. Why not TFA Coconut and TFA Coconut Candy? Well, for one thing, TFA Coconut is one that few people have. They’d sub TFA Coconut Extra and ruin it with suntan oil unless they’re making a large batch or using a dilution, since the original recipe used it at only 0.5% and I think Extra is about four times more potent. And it’s unnecessary thanks to WF Coconut Custard. TFA Coconut Candy has coconut flavor similar to WF Coconut Custard and it is creamy but wasn’t creamy enough for the original recipe, so I used FA Cream Fresh in that one. FLV Cream would have been better or at least easier, but I didn’t have that at the time and kept having to create version after version to force Cream Fresh to do what I wanted it to do. WF Coconut Custard is creamy enough by itself, eliminating the need for both Coconut Candy or any additional cream flavors.
FA Jamaican Special - Another carryover from the original recipe, at the same %.. It leaves me with the impression that there was some dark but unspiced rum in there, and that’s all I needed it to do. But why not VT Light Rum, you love VT Light Rum?! Because WS-23, that’s why. I do love the authentic booziness of VT Light Rum but it just doesn’t work for me with the WS-23 - it causes a weird clash of warm and cool. If you don’t care about “cold things should be cold,” or you care more about “cocktails should be boozy AF,” this would be the one thing I’d recommend subbing here. Sub VT Light Rum for WS-23 at the same amount. That’ll get you your booze without hurting the recipe. Personally, it always bothered me that I could not get cooling to work with the original recipe. Piña Colada is supposed to be frozen, dammit. But I could not get Koolada or Polar Blast to work with it. Koolada had a cardboardy off note and they both ate into the creaminess of the coconut something fierce. By front-loading the cooling using WS-23, I could finally freeze this sucker without sacrificing my coconut cream on the altar of coolant.
INW Pineapple - The third carryover, dropped down from 5.5% to 3% to get the pineapple-coconut balance right. I looked at this one differently than before. The original recipe was eventually built around INW Pineapple, which is so thin it required support from two other pineapples to put a good amount of pineapple meat on those bones and hold up against all that coconuttiness without things getting weird. But this time INW Pineapple is the one in the backup role. I thought VT Sugarloaf Pineapple might even be able to do it alone, but it imparted a strange lemony flavor when I tried to push it hard enough to balance properly. INW Pineapple makes a clean backup to bring the pineapple forward without any BS. VT Sugarloaf is the main reason why this recipe is better than the original that I worked so hard on so long ago. I think it makes the difference between a piña colada blended with fresh island pineapple and piña colada made from canned juice. It tastes fresher and more refreshing and has a dense base that gets down into that coconut. After testing 14 other pineapples, I never even bothered trying to use any of them pineapples until I reached for INW Pineapple to back it up. Even if you don’t care to try this recipe, get this flavor. I could easily be the difference between success and failure for whatever you’re trying to do with pineapple, as long as you don’t mind a short steep to get rid of a little metallic off-note that it has off a fresh shake.
Sweetener. Unnecessary here. Add some if you must, but try it without first.
