The biggest complaint I was getting was that TFA Banana Cream brought out a little bit of runtiness for some people. I eliminated that issue by swapping it for FLV Banana. FLV Banana is the creamiest banana out there and has an amazing mouthfeel. Unfortunately, it also comes with a little bit of a laffy taffy flavor.
I really did not want to make another plain Banana Custard so I decided to adapt this for a pod. This involved tinkering with the %s a bit, but the end result is amazing. Also, since it is a pod, the laffy taffy notes from FLV Banana do not seem to be coming through. This retains all the flavor from the original recipe, but it adds a better mouthfeel, has no candy off-notes, and is built for the convenience of your pod/MTL devices!
This mix started out as a bourbon cream and ended up with us pouring some of your granddad’s “special drink” into a McDonald’s chocolate shake (on those rare occasions where their ice cream machine is actually working).
This mix was a collaboration between @Foment_Life and I on the DIY eJuice Discord
The first draft was 3% Bavarian Cream, 2.5% TFA Kentucky Bourbon, .1% FLV Rich Cinnamon, 1% FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic), 2% VT Chocolate Mousse, and 1.5% TFA Marshmallow (but we both “oopsied” the marshmallow to about 1.8%).
We agreed that it already pretty much tasted like a McDonald’s shake, but wasn’t really what we were going for. We threw around a few ideas, and eventually landed on TFA Toasted Almond at 1.5%. This ended up adding a nice bit of smokiness that really helped sell the bourbon that was lacking a bit. The only problem, and maybe it was because I was dehydrated, but the mix started making my mouth super dry. We decided to let it sit a few days and see if the cream thickens up and helps out with the dryness.
A few people tested it out for us and really seemed to enjoy it, but we still thought it could be improved. We tried it after a few days steep and the cream really helped moisten the mix up. The dryness issue was pretty much eliminated. Really, the only thing that we thought could be improved was the bourbon. Unfortunately, I only had TFA Kentucky Bourbon to work with, but we both agreed that FLV Bourbon would be a good fit after Foment described it as a more woody/smokey bourbon than TFA Kentucky Bourbon. So Foment mixed up the new bottle and thought that was it. I added the FLV Bourbon to my cart, mixed it up, and fell in love.
TFA Marshmallow, TFA Bavarian Cream, and VT Chocolate Mousse make up our chocolate milkshake base.
FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic) is there to help bolster and add some richness to the chocolate.
TFA Kentucky Bourbon and FLV Bourbon are the secret ingredient.
And last but not least, the FLV Rich Cinnamon and TFA Toasted Almond are there to add some extra smokiness and spice to the booze.
Nothing is going to taste bad if you vape this early, however it does take about 7-10 days to reach its peak.
Simple 1-2-3 banana custard.
I wanted a simple shake and vape banana custard for when I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to wait on a long steep.
INW Custard is amazing and doesn’t require a steep, this was an obvious choice.
VT Banana Custard adds a realistic banana while bolstering the custard base
TFA Banana Cream was used to bring the custard and banana together. By itself, Banana Cream has a nice banana pudding flavor and it brought the other two flavors together nicely.
Can definitely be a SNV, but it does get better with a few days steep

The pineapple guava combo is just pure lust. On Lust Island they pour that sweet syrupy mix all over you and lick it off. Adding a little smoothie action never hurt anyone. Even a little prick(cactus) goes a long way here. Once you try it, you'll never want to leave Lust Island.
