Lava Flow Drink

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

Ingredients:

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
