Lava Flow Drink Recipe
 
 
 
 
Pineapple, coconut and strawberry flavors and a slushy, creamy undertone combined into a magically delicious cold drink. The kids will go crazy for it on a hot day. Although it does require three components of readiness, it is well worth it.
 

Ingredients

  • 3½ cups pineapple juice
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) cream of coconut (like Coco Lopez brand)
  • 1 cup half-and-half, fat-free or regular
  • 24 ounces frozen strawberries in syrup, slightly thawed until slushy in texture
  • Ice
  • Fresh pineapple for garnish, if desired

Tips

  • Cream of coconut may be found near non-alcoholic drink mixers in the liquor department.
  • Refrigerate each component after blending to keep them really cold before assembling the drinks, but don't make them too far in advance or the icy components will melt.

Directions

  1. In a blender, puree the slightly thawed strawberries with ½ cup of water. The mixture should be syrupy and thick. Transfer to a liquid-measure bowl or pitcher and set aside.
  2. In a pitcher, whisk together the pineapple juice, cream of coconut and half-and-half. In a blender (washed after pureeing the strawberries), add ice until half full. Pour in the coconut/pineapple mixture until it comes up to an even height with the ice. Blend until slushy (add more coconut/pineapple mixture if it is too thick to blend easily).
  3. Pour about an inch of the strawberry syrup mixture into a cup. Pour the icy coconut/pineapple mixture into the center of the strawberry mixture in the cup until the cup is filled. If desired, gently swirl the mixture with a straw. Garnish with fresh pineapple, if desired, and serve immediately.
