FLV APPLE IS VSO APPLE
I’m really, really enjoying vaping this mix. I can’t put it down!
A juicy, refreshing, summery feeling mix.
Juicy, tart apple with pink fruity and floral notes from the MB Pink Lady. VSO Apple is the foundation of the mix. It’s the best apple flavour I’ve tried by miles. I could happily vape it as a SF.
I think those who usually don’t like florals wouldn’t be put off by this mix as they more just accent to the apple. It’s a pretty soft floral note.
Cucumber is mainly adding to the overall fresh feel of the mix.
I let it sit overnight before vaping.
Deep, red strawberry blended into a rich, decadent cream.
A strawberry cream, as opposed to strawberries and cream. I thought I’d switch it up a bit!
FW Hazelnut does amazing things to the strawberry. It really ripens and deepens it (there is no actual hazelnut flavour).
It needs 5 days steep minimum. At 4 days or less the hazelnut is still evident.
I’d really appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
Really rich, thick, smooth coconut cream.
I’ve been trying to make a coconut cream on and off for a while, but the results just didn’t match exactly what I had envisioned. This came out exactly how I’d hoped.
The MB Palm Coconut and FLV Sweet Coconut make a lovely combo. I love CC Devon Cream. I’ve found if you want to use it as a main cream note it’s got to be cranked up a bit.
I borrowed a couple of elements I really liked from Leche De Coco by hashslingingslashur. TFA CCGC adds to the richness of the cream and adds to the almost grated texture the Palm Coconut has. The FA Fresh Cream stops it being too dark.
It’s best after 7 days steep for the richness and thickness of the cream to develop and the coconut to really blend in.
Super simple recipe.
If you don't have OSDIY Lucky Shot get it - it's delicious! When I tasted it I immediately thought it was everything WF Butter Pecan Pie was missing. A bakery type crust and some dark gooey-ness. Lucky Shot is basically a one shot and already pretty complex, so I wanted to keep the mix simple. I've been looking to make a bourbon pecan recipe for a while and TFA Kentucky Bourbon fits so well in this mix.
This recipe is easy to alter the percentages and customise to your own tastes.
Give it at least 3 days steep.
If you mix it I hope you enjoy it!
Tropical Pineapple and Paw Paw with creamy yoghurt and a touch of lime.
Made for Mixin’ Vixens- I know the photo shows banana- but I’m really not a fan of banana. Paw paw is said to share similarities so I chose to use that instead.
MB Pineapple Lassi is an amazing yoghurt with a fairly good pineapple but it needed some help, so I used the VT and INW.
The VT Paw Paw is quite high at 3.75%. But I needed to push it that high to get it to come through over everything else.
VT Yoghurt Drink adds to the yoghurt as well as having a citrus note which brightens the fruit. It also sweetens the mix.
CAP Creamy Yogurt gives the yoghurt more creaminess and yoghurty tang.
Can definitely SNV- maybe give it a few hours minimum though. Improves with a few days steep.
Vanilla almond milk- I made this for an episode of Mixin’ Vixens. It turned out pretty nice.
It’s pretty thick and rich for a milk- more like a cream that tastes like milk. The VT Vanilla Cream and VT Sweet Cream combo is so good. Then I added FLV Milk to give more of a milky taste and velvety, smooth mouthfeel.
I wanted to darken it all up a bit so used FA Vanilla Bourbon as it’s a lovely, darker vanilla. FA Butterscotch also adds a bit of dark sweetness.
FA Almond was an obvious choice as it’s so tasty. I used a little TFA Toasted Almond to try to bring it forward in the mix.
It needs about a week for everything to come through and balance out. It’s not bad before that. The creams are just a little light and it lacks body.
This is a thick, creamy homemade style rice pudding with a touch of cinnamon.
The VT Rice Base adds to the depth of the flavour of the FE Sweet Rice as well as helping it not to fade nearly as badly (thanks to NordicFlavours for his appearance on Noted and that tip).
Could probably sub the MB coconut for FLV Sweet Coconut- maybe at 0.5-0.75%? Although I haven’t tried that myself yet. I was originally going to use FLV but I’d just got the MB and wanted to play around with it as it’s such a great coconut. It’s not massively coconutty in this recipe, more like rice pudding that’s been made with a little coconut milk. I was originally trying to make a tropical rice pudding so it’s a hangover from that. I found it adds another layer to the cream and brings richness, so I left it in.
I used JF Bavarian Cream as it has a really nice vanilla note. But it’s not the thick, rich cream I wanted on it’s own so I paired it with FLV Cream and TFA Vanilla Swirl.
Rich Cinnamon is by far my favourite cinnamon- I get a metallic taste from a lot of others. I’ve made a 10% dilution of FLV Rich Cinnamon in a 10ml tester bottle so it’s easier to add tiny % of it to a mix.
I use 0.5% of CAP Super Sweet in most things, but do whatever you usually do with sweetener. I don’t think it would be bad without it.
This is a SNV recipe, but let it sit for an hour or two before vaping. It’s even better with an overnight steep.
I love ENYAWREKLAW’s BOOSTed V3 recipe. All I did here was change the strawberry combo and add INW Biscuit for the ice cream cone (another idea I pinched from ENYAWREKLAW- from his strawberry ice cream cone recipe). It worked out better than I could have imagined.
I got CAP Ripe Strawberries and wanted to play around with it. I decided to put it in a recipe I knew quite well- BOOSTed v3.
The combo of strawberries are made for each other-maybe literally with them both being CAP. There’s the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness which I think balances well with the cream and the cone comes in on the end.
If you would like more strawberry increase both to 4.5%. If you would like it to be more ice cream forward do them at 3.5%.
I wouldn’t have made it public as it feels like I cheated but it tastes so bloody good! This is definitely my favourite strawberry cream recipe that I’ve tried. All credit goes to ENYAWRECKLAW though as it’s 90% his recipe anyway.
It’ll need 3 days minimum. But it gets so much better after a steep. 5 days recommended.
Ps. If anyone can tell me how I put a link to ENYAWREKLAWs recipe at the bottom of the description that would be much appreciated. I can’t work out how to do it. Thanks
Lemon meringue pie- a tart lemon curd, sweet fluffy meringue and a buttery pastry. I tried really hard to get the balance between the flavours right so it was authentic to eating an actual lemon meringue pie.
CAP Lemon Meringue Pie is the main player. I just accentuated what it already has and filled in where I felt it was lacking. I tried using VT Lemon Meringue Tart but CAP worked better for the type of LMP I had envisioned.
FE Lemon (aka ‘Xpress Flavour’ Lemon on Chefs) and LA Cream Cheese Icing make up the lemon curd layer. FE is just a really lovely lemon and works perfectly here to create that lemon meringue pie kinda lemon. If you want it more lemon-y you can bump it up to 1.5%. LA CCI is what makes this mix so good. It gives it richness, mouthfeel and makes
it a lemon curd rather than just a lemon. I think it needs a bit of a steep to really start working though. I wanted to avoid using a custard or anything too creamy so as not to mute the acidity of the lemon.
INW Biscuit and CAP Sugar Cookie create the buttery bakery layer. You can definitely sub INW Biscuit for JF. Most of the versions before this one I made with JF. The INW just seemed a touch more present after the steep.
FA Meringue is obviously the meringue layer, but it also sweetens the whole mix as well as softening any of the harsh edges of the lemon.
I like to use CAP SS at 0.5% but you can obviously sweeten to your own tastes. I think it does need at least a bit of sweetener to brighten everything up.
You can leave overnight and it’s ok but it gets so much better after at least a weeks steep.
I tested it on a single coil in the Hadaly and i got a really great balance in the layers- the lemon, the pastry/ bakery and the meringue were all present and easily identifiable. I went onto test it on a couple of dual coil RDAs and although still good the layers were a bit less distinct. I personally have found this recipe works far better with a more restricted airflow. I tried on the Drop Dead with the airflow wide open and I mainly just got lemon. Once the airflow was closed a little more than halfway a lot more of the profile came through.
I’d really love to hear feedback-
any criticisms and suggestions as to how I could improve the recipe would be much appreciated.
