Need help to make Strawberry cream


This looks very tasty as well. The light to heavy cream is exactly what I’m shooting for rather than a custard flavor. I’m not familiar with the Shisha Vanilla. I have FW French Vanilla, TPA French Vanilla Deluxe, TPA Vanilla Bean Gelato, CAP and TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, TPA Vanilla Cupcake, and TPA Vanilla Swirl. Which (if any) of these do you think would be a good replacement for Shisha Vanilla?

Once again and as always, thanks very much for the help!



Now on to a strawberry flavor discussion. I have in my stash TPA Strawberry, TPA Strawberry Ripe, FW Strawberry, and CAP Sweet Strawberry. I know a lot of this is personal preference but what do you experts think would be the best single or mix of these for a strawberry cream juice? I love strawberry and have a sweet palate if that’s any help.



Joe everyone has their preference, but one thing many agree on is the mix of TPA Strawberry Ripe and CAP Sweet Strawberry. Many say it makes for a more “realistic” strawberry. The percentages of these used in a mix is a matter of preference really. Where I would lean toward 5% SR and 3%SS, others will have their own preferred amounts to use. As for how much you start out with, maybe wait on more people to comment, or take a stab at a mix of your own. Try looking at some posted recipes along with the flavors themselves and you’ll get an idea of how others use them.Right now there are 291 recipes posted that contain SR and SS. The top rated one is Ken’s Strawnana Custard and his percentages are 4% SR and 3% SS.

Good luck.


I concur with what @SthrnMixer said. I typically do 4/3 Strawberry Ripe (TPA) / Sweet Strawberry (Cap). Sometimes I use Flavorah’s Strawberry. It is more of a strawberry syrup flavor than a real strawberry.

Shisha Vanilla… it’s sooo good. But Vanilla Bean Gelato would be good in that recipe. Vanilla Bean Ice Cream would be good too. But, in my opinion you might be getting away from the lightness of the recipe if that is what you are after. My suggestion to you would be to make a 10ml bottle of each of those vanilla flavorings and make the recipe without the vanilla. then in a separate bottle, mix the Berries portion of the recipe with the Vanilla single flavor mixes one at a time and see what you like. You would gain a little understanding of how each of those flavors dance around with your flavor profile.

Another suggestion… Bite the bullet and order Shisha Vanilla. It is a flavor I think is a must-have for anyone who likes vanilla.

As far as the strawberries go, I mix as @SthrnMixer and @JoJo has said with Ripe and Sweet sometimes. But I also use Ripe with TFA regular strawberry too. It just depends on what I am mixing. Sometimes it is just me screwing up when entering the flavors into the calculator too :wink:


The Berries ‘n’ Cream recipe I shared above came out really good. But I am pretty sure I screwed it up while mixing it…


You mean something like “Use sound methodology and testing process?”. I knew someone was going to say that!

I’m trying very hard to do just that but I find myself trying too many recipes at once and struggling with patience to wait weeks steeping. I’m getting better at logging what I mix and making notes about the results. As I have more juices steeped and ready to use I’m doing better at waiting for new recipes to steep.

I appreciate all the help and hope that at some point I can become anywhere near as proficient as a lot of you are. until then I’ll be asking a lot of questions!

Ask away. We are all here to help each other. Before long I will be asking you for advice :slightly_smiling:
Try mixing some recipes that require very little to no steeping. That will get you some vapable juice quickly, and every once in awhile toss in a test batch of something like a custard. Something you can leave alone for a month or two. You will get there. The beginning is the worst. But once you get past the first couple months it starts to go very smoothly, and you can have a bunch of single bottles ready to test and make changes and try again. It gets to be a lot of fun.


I made your recipe but dropped the SB down to 8 and the sweet cream down to 2.5 kept the marsh the same I just can’t vape too much high pg juices. Just wanted to say thanks for the share. I would rate it but you didn’t put a link or say what it’s called. I really think it’s a great vape and it hasn’t even reached the full 10 days yet.

Joe out of those you mentioned I would feel comfortable subbing vanilla swirl for the vanilla shisha.


That’s awesome! Try the same thing and substitute in blueberry extra TFA for the strawberry. It’s another fan favorite. I appreciate you trying it :slightly_smiling:

Ok I will do that. I wanted to rate the recipe but don’t know what it is called ?


I’m new to diy and also love a good strawberry cream vape. I have a few different strawberries that I’m trying to mix with, but all seem to have a “fumey” taste to them when I vape them (if that makes any sense). Does time get rid of that? Or do I need to let them breathe?


That would depend on what flavors you used, and what percentages you used them at. Care to share this info? It would help diagnose your problem.


That would help huh?

FA strawberry
FW strawberry
CAP sweet strawberry
INW strawberry
Tfa organic strawberry
Tfa strawberry
Tfa strawberries & cream ( haven’t tried yet)

As for percentages around 4-6%

That doesn’t seem too far from the norm. How long have you let them steep? I noticed they all tend to get better with a bit of steeping. But I don’t think I have mixed any of those and vaped right away except the FA and Capella Sweet. And they both get better with steeping.


Ive only let them sit for a week week and a half.


where does one order Shisha Vanilla? I can’t seem to find it…ty…:slightly_smiling:


Bull City Vapor has it. @DonovanECX I bet a lot of people really wish you guys had more Shisha flavors. I for one want to try all of the Shisha fruit offerings.
