No cinnamon? No strawberries? No worries, we'll get your cornflakes fixed up. Let's load this bowl... With sliced bananas.
Toasted Redux #2. Pulled the cinnamon and I pushed Cereal 27 from 3% to 5% to stand up to the banana. I dialed back Meringue from 2% to 1.5% and Cream Fresh from 1.5% to 1%. The banana flavoring I used is already quite creamy, so I didn't need as much "milk." If you're interested in the cereal/milk notes, check out Toasted.
TPA Banana Cream is the one, simple, easy, malleable, reliable, tasty addition to the recipe. It's a sweet banana flavor that can pass as authentic enough in the right situations. One of those situations is a bowl of sugary cereal and sweet milk. It's a very easy flavor to work with. It tends to do it's own thing with everything but creams. In this recipe it melts into the cream, while the inherently starchy flavor of banana plays well with the flaky cereal. 2% is all we need. Don't want it to take over. We aren't eating a banana covered in cornflakes, even though I want to now.
This is pretty much ready to rock from the get go. Give it a few days to a week for the creams to figure themselves out and it gets even better.
Happy mixing. 👽
A lemon meringue Oreo inside of Danish pastry crust with a cinnamon coating.
Remix of Electric Liquid's "Frequency"
CAP Lemon Meringue Pie is the backbone of the recipe. This is a pretty full flavor that doesn't need much emphasizing or influencing. 8% gives us a citrusy lemon filling that stands up to the chocolate crust.
RF Cookies & Cream SC is straight up Oreos. I loved the VG version, and the SC is basically identical as far as I can tell. It's a lovely chocolate flavor to contrast with our filling. You got your freebie from the fine folks at RF, so why don't you put it to use?
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl acts as our cinnamon dusting and doughy pastry part of the crust. The cinnamon plays well with Lemon Meringue Pie. Rich Cinnamon was a little too bold here. CDS left more room for all of the other stuff going on. 1% is all we need; any more and that weird Capella cinnamon becomes too much.
FA Meringue is filling out the Lemon Meringue Pie and emphasizing that thick layer of cream on top. 1% soaks up the cinnamon and keeps that metallic taste at bay. Meringue doesn't seem to dampen the texture of bakeries and cereals as much as some other creams. That's good because it's tough striking a balance here between crunchy crust and creamy filling.
INW Biscuit is just helping the RF C&C with a little texture. 0.5% pushes that cookie crunch of the crust a little bit more without interfering in the rest of the pie. (I would probably replace this with 1% JF Biscuit nowadays.)
1% FE Lemon is bolstering the lemon meringue and helping push it through the Oreo crust.
This makes a really good shake and vape. Give the Super Concentrate a few days to settle though, and things really come together. This stuff ages like wine; squirrel a little bit away for a rainy day.

Instead of pouring cinnamon powder on my cornflakes, I chopped up some sugar-coated strawberries and tossed them in the bowl.
Toasted Redux #1. I replaced Rich Cinnamon with a couple strawberries. I also bumped Cereal 27 from 3% to 5% so it will stand up to the strawberries enough. Really simple adaptation, yet it radically changes the profile. See Toasted for the cereal notes if you're interested.
CAP Sweet Strawberry is a bright, sugary, candied flavor. It's exactly the kind of Strawberry you want in your cornflakes. At 4%, it’s present without totally overtaking everything.
TPA Strawberry Ripe brings a touch of that authentic, fresh strawberry flavor to the mix. 2% isn't very apparent, but it fleshes out the CAP Sweet Strawberry. There's not much else to say about it.
This is a good shake and vape. Let it sit for 1-3 days first and you will be rewarded.

Creamy custard heavy on rich vanilla with a subtle cookie crumble.
This is another belly button recipe. I'm probably 20 iterations in. Since January I've been altering it an ingredient at a time, however the past few times I haven't changed anything. It's what I'm looking for. An easy vanilla vape. Ol' faithful. It's mild yet rich, and it won't assault your senses. When I've spent the whole day tasting and testing, I can kick back and enjoy this After the Party.
4% CAP Vanilla Custard v1 is the base. It's buttery, thick, eggy, and robust. I don't like too much egg though, so it stays kind of light. If I'm doing a custard, it's gonna be with this guy. I tried INW Custard for awhile but it has the same note that I don't like in INW Creme Brulee. CAP has a better flavor for my basic bitch American palate. It's just good. There. That's why I used it. The vanilla part is meh at best, but that's okay. We have a secret weapon:
1.5% DFS Holy Vanilla is elevating that vanilla into uncharted planes of nirvana. That creamy, mid-baking, vanilla extract essence with its full bodied aroma absolutely has to be here. This will solve all of CAP VCV1's vanilla problems, and take it where it never knew it could go. I've pushed this to 3% without regret, but the custard starts to thin out. At 1.5% the vape remains a thick custard with a very authentic and satisfying vanilla.
0.5% HS French Vanilla Ice Cream adds some complexity to the custard. It has a rich cream note that is super buttery. I had 1.5% TPA VBIC in the recipe, but it was too bland. It was flattening the profile. FVIC does the opposite. It fleshes out the creams without emulsifying everything into one muddled flavor. 1% Vienna Cream worked pretty well if you're missing this flavor, but it won't be the same.
1% TPA Bavarian Cream is another supporting flavor for the custard. Along with FVIC, it bolsters the dairy profile around that egginess. It has some of that warm, homely feeling to it that I get from Holy Vanilla. Any higher and this would start to be known, but at 1% it hangs out in the background.
2% FW Graham Cracker has no cinnamon, it's just a fresh graham. It isn't as crunchy as TPA. I didn't want it to seem like a graham crust but more of a cookie crumbled into the custard. It doesn't pop right out; it's just another warm accent to make this feel like a relaxing vape.
Let's talk about steeping. This is actually a pretty good shake and vape... To me. I don't like very forward custards, so 4% VCV1 as a shake and vape works for me. Considering it's fortified by other strong flavors, it's good out of the gate. However, I prefer to let all juices steep, especially custards and bakeries because they tend to bloom with time. I don't mind letting this steep for a month or more. With that said, it comes together by two weeks. The Custard does benefit greatly from that time. Do whatever you wanna do; it's a good vape no matter when you vape it.

Breakfast Bowls #2: Toasted - Cinnamon toasted cornflakes with a splash of milk.
This began life as a Cinnamon Toast Crunch recipe. A happy accident then occurred. The first version didn't taste like toast at all, but much more cornflake-y. However, I found it to be incredibly delicious. Inspired, I poured a bowl of Frosted Flakes and sprinkled some cinnamon in there. I found my new favorite cereal! I immediately abandoned the CTC idea and focused on honing this into what it already was. Now, it's my absolute favorite vape.
CAP Cereal 27 is flaky, grainy, and crunchy. It has that cornflake cereal essence. It's used here as the body of the cereal. It's kind of bland and corn-y by itself, but it's a great place to start. 3% definitely makes this the base.
FA Cream Fresh is a favorite of mine. It's simple cream with no egg or vanilla. I use it to boost the milk profile. 1.5% keeps Meringue smooth without adding too much weight. It's a light flavor that doesn't drown the flaky cereal.
TPA Graham Cracker Clear emphasizes the graininess of Cereal 27. It helps mold the cornflake flavor of C27 into something more substantial and crunchy. 1% is enough to do that without turning this into a Golden Grahams vape.
FA Meringue is my sugary cereal milk. I pushed it to 2% so it will break through the cereal ever so slightly. I also want some of the more complex flavors to emerge so it can help the texture of the cereal. The creaminess combines with Cream Fresh to make a solid, sweet milk. They sit on the bottom of the recipe, but they smooth things out. Both creams are light and work well with the grains without making the cereal soggy.
FLV Rich Cinnamon is the king of kings. This might be the most delicious god damn flavoring out there. I don't use it much because I'm not huge on cinnamon. However, when I need to bust out the spices.. RC is always the one I go for first. It takes me back to baking with my mom as a kid. It's just like those sticks of cinnamon she always had in little mason jars. This stuff is wildly potent though. I have a 10% dilution that I use for more subtle applications. This recipe, on the other hand, can handle the real deal, undiluted, undisputed champ. Only 2 drops per 30ml though! Using a dilution will of course be easier. Don't go over and don't go under on this one. It will overpower absolutely everything or it won't bring out enough cinnamon-nutmeg-warm-bakery-essence spice. Uh.. Yeah.
TPA Toasted Marshmallow darkens the milk a little bit. Malts it up some. We don't want super bright milk competing with this darker, spicy cereal flavor. It also lends that Toasted quality ever so slightly to the cereal. Adds depth to the entire recipe.
CAP Super Sweet is a great sweetener. It's strong as fuck, it's sweet as fuck, and it's coming to murder your coils. Seriously. Right now. It's on it's way. We're vaping cereal here. We could use some sugary sweetness. I might not be trying to vape on old people cereal. It livens up the flavors and gives it all some more sticky sweetness. The recipe is still great without it, but SS turns it up a notch. 2/3 times I mix this with sweetener. Just about 2 drops of this heavy shit in a 30. If you over shoot a little it won't be the end of the world, but be delicate. You don't need much. If you doubt me try a back of the hand test. I think I caught a buzz..
This is a great shake and vape. The creams do come out after ~10 days, but it's never super milky. It's delicious, crunchy, spicy goodness that goes down silky smooth.

Fuji apples followed by kiwis and strawberries. A light and refreshing mix.
FA Fuji provides a crisp and tart apple. 1% starts out strong, but after a few days it recedes into its place in the mix.
FA Kiwi is a juicy and sweet tropical burst. At 2% it's the body of the vape. It's Kiwi. It's a great flavor. That's a bad descriptor for what we're doing, but that's it in a nutshell.
I've been trying to find a use for INW Strawberry Shisha because I usually don't like it. I couldn't come up with anything for the syrup flavor it has going on until now. Here, that syrupy quality pulls the apple and kiwi together. Fuji's crispness tones down the syrup note, leaving a candied strawberry at the bottom of the recipe.
FA Marshmallow is here as a light sweetener. You could probably exclude it if you wanted to, but I preferred just a touch.
Shake and vape certified. I like to let it sit a few days though.
Happy mixing. 👽
"...a smooth combination of ripe strawberries and fresh, thick cream." -BDV
The point of the recipe was to remix "Moo Fields" by Blue Dot Vapors, a staple strawberry milk juice. I know there's a hundred popular S&C recipes, but Moo Fields isn't quite like any of them. A lot of new mixers are probably familiar with BDV and Moo Fields, too.
FA Cream Fresh is a straightforward cream. It's clean and smooth. There's no vanilla or egg note, only that beautiful cream. At 1.5% it's present, but it doesn't take the spotlight from the strawberries.
FA Meringue is a well-known bakery and milk ingredient. It lends that sugariness to the Fresh Cream and sweetens it into milk. I found a 3:2 ratio of Cream Fresh to Meringue to be milky without getting gritty. Since I kept Cream Fresh low at 1.5%, Meringue fell right in at 1%.
TPA Strawberry (Ripe) had to be used for that fresh and ripe note from the original juice. It lacks any body or presence on its own though. Being such a light flavor, I decided 4% was a good place for it. I didn't want to go overboard, and I knew I would be filling it out with another strawberry.
CAP Sweet Strawberry is definitely present in the original as well. This is the body of the strawberry. A 2:1 ratio of Strawberry (Ripe) to Sweet Strawberry is absolutely delicious. You get the bright, sugary, forward notes of Sweet Strawberry, and Strawberry Ripe gives it some of the fresh authenticity of the real deal. The creams are light, so there wasn't a need for much strawberry. I let Sweet Strawberry guide my percentages more than Strawberry Ripe. At 2% it comes out in front, but the creams are still there. I thought about working JF Sweet Strawberry in, but it isn't in the original. Part of the appeal is how the milk shines through more and more as it steeps anyway, so CAP Sweet Strawberry's slow recession into the mix is welcomed here.
FA Marshmallow fills everything out. It further sweetens the recipe and gives it body. 1% doesn't let the marshmallow flavor come out, but it works magic on the mouthfeel.
Let this one steep a week or two. Sweet Strawberry and the creams take time to find their places.

Hey there! I think I'm considering this a wrap. This is my strawberry milk recipe with an emphasis on the milk. It's full and round in the mouth. The cream is thick and sweet. The strawberry is mellow yet present.
The whole idea was a very milky strawberry and cream vape using FLV Cream and JF Sweet Strawberry. Those were the key ingredients that I had to use. Cream has this almost cool taste to it.. Not like Koolada or menthol at all. It isn't cool, but it kind of tastes so. Sweet Strawberry is one of few strawberries I can taste, and it's kind of syrupy. It isn't sickly like INW Strawberry Shisha though. Nor is it gross as all get out like FLV Strawberry. So that's that.
FLV Cream has that heavy cream, almost milky thing going for it. It's a thick cream with an ever so slight spice. I used TPA VBIC to thicken the cream and pump up that vanilla note. I threw in just a splash of Meringue to sweeten the cream into something more like milk. The TPA Bavarian Cream is there to kind of warm up and fill out the cream. JF Sweet Strawberry is a new favorite of mine and I had to use it here for its sweet, nearly syrupy taste. I found a bit of TPA Strawberry took off the sharp edge of the Sweet Strawberry, making it a little softer. The TPA Dragonfruit is just there to help bring the strawberries out a bit. It makes for a thick, creamy, milky vape with a semi-sweet strawberry taste that isn't overpowering. It's been my ADV for quite some time now, and no matter how much I vape it I can still taste it. So, there you have it! Ron Burgundy's Milk Was a Rad Choice (something I sure hope you find yourself saying after trying it!). Please leave feedback; I welcome it good or bad! Happy mixing. 👽
