One of the most popular tropical drinks on the islands is the Lava Flow. Just by looking at the ingredients it’s not hard to see why. If you like Pina Coladas you may enjoy the twist of the addition of strawberries. Try this recipe we found on Hawaiianrecipes.org in the comfort of your condo and enjoy on your private lanai. Request a blender from our Front Desk and they will be glad to supply you with one. Should you decide to quench your thirst poolside be sure to serve in plastic cups. Enjoy!
- 1 oz. Light rum
- 1 oz. Malibu® coconut rum
- 2 oz. Fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 Small banana
- 2 oz. Unsweetened pineapple juice
- 2 oz. Coconut cream
Blend the 2 rums and the strawberries in a blender to form a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into a tall (Collins or Hurricane) glass. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice in blender with crushed ice until smooth. Pour this mixture into the glass with the rums very slowly and watch as the strawberry mixture oozes its way to the top along the sides of the glass creating the flowing lava effect. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella.
We also want to mention the Lava Flow can be made without alcohol by omitting the rum ingredients.
