Please Note:
I used Frandy (FRA) Mango v2 @ 3.75% and I have no idea what FP Mango Mamba tastes like. I just chose a strange concentrate's name to take the place of the ACTUAL strange concentrate I used since it's another one ATF don't list. Get FRA Mango v2. It's a banger on it's own. And I'd know!

ABOUT
∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙

This was originally a quick mix to test some new flavours (DIY-EJ Mangoes are excellent BTW) but it turned out to be one I REALLY enjoyed, I even decided it was worthy of being my first shared recipe. I remade it with some more accessible Mango flavours and the result is better than the original! I also played with apricots and peaches, but the mango really shines on it's own here.

Ya'll reading this better get your hands on Frandy Mango v2 (its a banger) in the meantime!

FLAVOUR NOTES
∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙

∙ FRA Mango v2 / FE Mango / FLV Mango ∙

We're going for a bright and juicy mango here, ripe, juicy, bright & sweet. We've essentially built a Mango sandwich with FE Mango (A.K.A SC Mango) in the middle. FE Mango @ 1.5% is bringing much of the body and juicy thickness, it is a realistic, sweet and bright mango. We have FLV Mango supporting the base, bringing just a touch of deeper, thicker, dark & ripe aspect but just a touch.
Sitting on top and cascading over all we have FRA Mango v2 which is bright and juicy and sweet without being candied. It's a wonderful juicy mango and brings all the top notes plus adds a great bright mango flavour on the exhale.
It should be noted that FE Mango is a great flavour off the shake but is prone to fading over time. However, in this mix I have found the mango has lasted til the end.

∙ NR Smooth Cream/NR Vanilla Milkshake/FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream ∙

As noted, I was mixing up some new flavours. When I first mixed it, my intention was to build a sweet, creamy base for the mango to sit upon, but what you're actually getting here is a full on fresh mango with a creamy base that is very much in the background. NR Smooth Cream adds a creamy mouthfeel without imparting any dairy notes @ 1%. NR Vanilla Milkshake and FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream are used to bring a thicker body and creamy mouthfeel, as well as a slight touch of vanilla that plays well with the next ingredient.

∙ WF African Horned Cucumber ∙

This mix has a refreshing twist with the sweet, juicy, almost minty flavour of WF African Horned Cucumber. This is essential and is worth getting if you enjoy juicy fruit mixes! It's function here is similar to how some mixers will use INW Cactus low to add juiciness. Unfortunately, my tastebuds don't much care at all for the humble cactus and so finding this concentrate has been great for me. I love the juiciness and flavour it brings at 0.5% without overshadowing the Mango.

∙ CAP Super Sweet / WS-23 (Coolant) ∙
Mangoes are a sweet and full-flavoured fruit which is why I added SS @ 0.5% but you're of course free to tweak the % or omit it completely and the same goes for WS-23. This is the highest % I've added WS-23 and it's on par with the fruity Malaysian juices which inspired this recipe. You can reduce it to 1%, or even 0.5% if you prefer, I haven't tried this recipe without it.

SUBS / Other Changes
∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙ ∙∙∙
These are just suggestions for potential subs, drop a comment with what works for you

∙ NR Smooth Cream 1.5% → TPA Whipped Cream 1.5%
∙ FW VBIC → Your preferred VBIC concentrate (LB, FA, TPA, CAP...)
∙ NR Vanilla Milkshake → Increase FW VBIC or other VBIC

The reasons for not recommending a sub for FRA Mango V2 is it's taken me a while on this mission for mangoes to find ones I really enjoy. These are just the ones that work for me (but sub where you need!) Plus, it's the best mango concentrate I've tried and I have about 30 I think so it may well be worth getting it from BLCK flavour if you can and you enjoy a great-tasting juicy mango on the in- and the ex-hale.

DIY is all about customisation. This recipe can be used as a building block and you can change anything from the VG:PG ratio, to the %'s of Sweetener or WS-23 in your mix, or even sub flavours when you have to.

It's true, it won't be exactly the same, but just do what works best for you and if you do mix this up (or some variation of it) I hope you enjoy it.

In my list of quick flavor profiles that I'm often asked for pods/MTL vapes, pineapple is the most recent one. I decided to go for a pineapple juice, but I really wanted a sweet, strong and fleshy fruit.

WF Pineapple Candy/VT Sugar Loaf Pineapple/CAP Golden Pineapple = the pineapple. WF pineapple candy comes off strong, but it settles down after a couple of days and it's sweet. Sugar Loaf has good mouthfeel and middle body qualities and Golden Pineapple is good for juices yet loyal to the fruit.

CAP Lemon Lime/WF African Horned Cucumber = the African horned cucumber is the juice in this recipe. It acts a bit like TPA Dragon Fruit if you will. Lemon Lime is a great trick to make your tropical fruits pop, and pineapple is no exception.

It'll work in 50VG/50PG for a pod/MTL vape and at 70VG/30PG for sub-ohm tanks and RTA/RDAs.

Many thanks to @MECHMODRN ( https://alltheflavors.com/users/MECH_MOD_RN ) who is, as always, a great sounding board and support.

Enjoy, be queer and vape on!

MORE WORDS... and some more words.

My experiments with African Horned Cucumber continue. This recipe is based on a recipe for an African Horned Cucumber sauce recipe:
http://www.theafricangourmet.com/2013/02/african-horned-cucumber-sauce.html
It is an interesting mix of fruits with spice. I really enjoyed it.

This recipe must be steeped 2 weeks.

I forgot to write the description when I was testing it, and all I remember is that it was pretty good.

An African Horned Cucumber gin cocktail inspired by this recipe: http://fruitmaven.com/2010/02/minty-blowfish-kiwano-cocktail/

After my first experiment with African Horned Cucumber, I was determined to tame the beast, and researched how the fruit was used in cooking. This recipe was intriguing. The mint and gin are strong enough to balance the African Horned Cucumber, and it takes its place as a team player.

Tested on Digiflavor Siren 2 with 1 ohm ss316 at 16 watts

This is a bright vibrant tropical profile that is mango forward that transition to the tangerine and finishes with a slightly tart pineapple. and sweetness of the African horned cucumber
Tested on a reaload RDA at 65 watts
This mix is a collaboration between MECH MOD RN and Queer Your vape https://alltheflavors.com/users/QueerYourVape

island Mango is a a very ""orange" full and sweet ripe mango that is juicy and sits in the front of this mix
african horned cucumber has sweet honey - melon notes that are combined with a cucumber, this combination adds some body and wetness to the mix
pineapple candy is a candy like pineapple that sits a bit on top , and backs into the mix after a day or so
tangerine add some more of that orange note and helps to fill in the middle of this mix as the mango is front end of the mix
lemon lime soda adds the needed citrus to contrast the ripe fruit and adds a wetness as a beverage and mixer

My thanks to Mark Turner for his help with this recipe.

African Horned Cucumber is a unique flavor. It seems rather herbal to me after steeping. It blends well with the citrus flavors, but is definitely the dominant flavor in this recipe. The African Horned Cucumber flavor changes dramatically with time. It starts out very "orangy," and is very unappealing after steeping about a week, but the second week, this recipe comes to its own. It really hit the spot for me when I was bored with my typical flavors.

Note: After vaping this for a while, I decided it needed more lemon, so it has been added to the original recipe.

Tested on Digiflavor Siren 2 at 1.0 ohm 316 ss
Tested later at higher wattage (40), and it had more flavor

7-up base with sweet melons and cucumber accent. Sugar cane just adds a unique sweetness. (can omit if you do not have)
