There are numerous variations for making a Lava Flow.

This biggest difference is that some recipes use 1 oz. of light rum and 1 oz. of Malibu® coconut rum.

When Malibu® coconut rum is unavailable you can use 1 1/2 oz. of light rum and 1/2 oz. of coconut cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. Malibu® coconut rum
  • 2 oz. strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small banana
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice (unsweetened)
  • 2 oz. coconut cream

Steps to Make It
