Lava Flow Drink

My sister loves Lava Flows.  We tried this recipe and it turned out pretty good.


2.5 oz. pineapple juice (5 Tbsp)

2.5 oz. cream of coconut (Coco Lopez) (5 Tbsp)

1 oz. rum (2 Tbsp)

1/2 cup ice (we needed more ice to thicken the drink, but too much watered it down too much)

Blend all of the above in a blender. (I found blending it all at once makes it thicker)

Puree strawberries with some sugar.  I just added sugar to taste.  I also let this mixture sit for a day to let the sugar dissolve.

Pour some strawberry mixture into a glass and then add the drink on top.

*This tasted good, but I would prefer it thicker.  We need to experiment with different ratios and recipes.  I am thinking an ice cream maker would thicken it nicely, but that wouldn’t work for making Lava Flows all afternoon and into evening since the ice cream maker would thaw.  Also, I used a banana one time since a lot of recipes use one and we thought it tasted too much like a banana smoothie.


*.5 ounce = 1 tablespoon
