This is more like a variation on an existing recipe,an exercise on how to remake an older recipe using newer flavours,without changing the profile of the original recipe,which is this one https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/122776#almond_macarons_by_nks.The idea was suggested from me in the vape alchemists group and i guess it could be really helpful for new mixers and it could also be a kind of example on how to adjust any recipe depending on your taste buds and your flavour stash
Overall,the recipe doesn't change much,i still enjoy the older version as much as i enjoy the new.
Mixer's Club Theme: Try something new. This is definitely new for me. I wanted to make a mix using those specific flavors to create one profile that wasn't exactly cereal, not quite the berry forward, not too sweet, semi floral. It was more about getting these components to work in a mix that going for any specific real thing.
B- For the berry i went with the daveberry trinity scaled down by a third. It sticks out distinctly as a berry here without dominating the mix.
W- The wheat here is both flv wheat and jf biscuit. wheat brings an almost floral wheat note that biscuit fills in with a sweeter, lightly flaky body. I tried some RF Baked Bread sc but it was a little overpowering and i didn't feel like it was adding to the profile. I got wf frosted puff cereal and wanted to try it in here but it came too late. Im happy with where this is at anyway because I struggled to get a solid almond note I wanted.
A - for the almond I used FA almond. I searched high and low in my drawer for wf almond cookie to see if i could use this in place of jf biscuit but also boost out the almond. Never did find it. I tried a little FA marzipan but it didnt make any noticable difference for me so I left it out. Just kept dialing this up until I liked where it was just under the wheat.
H - I tried flv honey bee for the honey. It was too floral without enough sweet. Decided to give vt a run here. It has a bit of wiggle room between 2-3 % but I definitely wanted it to be both the bulk of the sweet and the almond wheat bowtie.
I think what came out was interesting and not too bad. Hope you like it. outside my wheelhouse so any criticism, suggested flavors, just 'give up' comments are welcome. :)
This is a pineapple - banana - coconut smoothie with almond milk!
The smoothie: Milkshake Base VTA + Vanilla Ice Cream LB create a great base for starting most milkshakes/smoothies. Adding Coconut Custard WF + Creamy Custard VTA and Avocado Cream VTA is what makes this recipe a creamy smoothie and not a milkshake.
The almonds: Almond FA + Amaretto Sour FLV combined bring tangy almond top notes, pairing great with most fruits.
The toppings: The most prominent topping in this recipe is the Sugarloaf Pineapple VTA, making this recipe rather pineapple heavy at 2%. Banana Custard brings banana to the top, while supported by Creamy Custard and Avocado Cream you can also find banana throughout the whole body of the recipe. Sweet Coconut FLV is not enough to make coconut a main component of this recipe, adding a very sublte coconut flavour. It is mainly added in the mix to tame the pineapple and amaretto sour a little.
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.
We were doing "Wishing Well! Australian Brush Fires!" on SaturDIY'ing with fresh03 and Friends! and I made this recipe for Corvape who requested a strawberry macaron which is different from a macaroon (that's the coconut treat), thing is, I can't taste strawberry in vapes.
MB MECHMODRN helped me out with the strawberries. I do get something from VSO Strawberry which I used instead of FA Red Touch.
Notes to come!
Enjoy, be queer and vape on!

Banana bread RY4, if you like faint tobacco mixes and you like banana bread I can’t see you not liking this one, DIYFS banana bread is by far the best banana bread so thanks for pointing that out karl.
I’m not going to go into detail here as all the flavours do what I intend them to do the only thing I will say is that VTA raw sugar works beautifully in RY4 mixes so that had to be there, nothing is overpowering here, just as much banana bread as there is nuts and RY4 elements.
Super sweet is subjective and can be dropped out if you wish.
If you like this recipe and what I do then please rate and review accordingly 👍🏻
In this recipe the idea was to recreate what this image shows.
A sweetened honey milk with a floating toasted almond crunch.
So for the milk base i went the classic route with 2% Bavarian Cream and 1% Vanilla swirl, easy simple yet efective.
To add a honey sweetness vibe Milk & Honey is perfect dark sweetness for this mix.
And to make the Roasty almonds a combination between FA Almond and CAP Cereal 27 did the trick for a crunchy roasted almond.
To me? Spot on!
One of my best seller down here in Brazil.
Still, maybe you could add some (2-3%) of CAP Van custard if you dare make it creamier -But knowing that it’s not supposed to be a custardy profile!-
I kinda looove the feeling of dark melting hazel that comes from this mix.
Because of the “metallic thing” coming from the hazel groove, and cocoa’s dryness, please be a dear and wait those 3 weeks, deal?
Hope you enjoy!
Lots of love and flavor <3
I quite like my trials on diy. But this was the first one that really convinced my boyfriend, witch is why I call it “daddy’s”.
I started off using tpa hazelnut, but after a good steep I realized the reality of FW would fit better the profile. Feel free to use TPA’s without the hazel groove (changes completely, but works well).
I feel it well blended only after a month of steeping, despite after two weeks is already vapeable. Don’t dare trying before... there’s a metallic thing coming out from the hazels that creeps me out.
Hope you enjoy :)
Feel free to comment
Lots of love and flavor <3
