Lava Flow

Recipe by  

"A fun authentic Hawaiian drink that tastes REALLY good. As you pour in the second mixture, the first will slowly creep up the sides of the glass like lava."

this is a very good drink, however, traditional lava flows do not have banana. i add a good amount of ice, omit the banana and double the coconut cream and pineapple juice.

You are missing a key ingredient here, ICE! All the ingredients should be blended with ice. Also I would reccomend removing the banana we had this drink in Maui and they did not add banana and it is tastier without.

I loved these in Maui. Except I added ice, I used banana liquor, malibu rum and frozen strawberry puree! So yummy!

I had these for the first time in Hawaii and thought they would be great for my luau themed party last weekend. I pre-made the strawberry mixture and put in a pitcher so I wouldn't be behind the bar all night. I think I made about 50 of these drinks. Very important, crush the pina colada mixture with ice.I couldn't find coconut creme, so I used coconut milk which was just fine. I love this summer drink.

We can't get the strawberry and rum mixture to be pasty. It is very runny. We tried adding some ice also, but that isn't working.
