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.

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.
  2. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice in the blender with crushed ice until smooth.
  3. 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.
  1. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella.

If Malibu® Coconut Rum is Unavailable

  • 1 1/2 oz. light rum
  • 2 1/2 oz. coconut cream
  • 2 oz. fresh strawberries
  • 1 small banana
  • 2 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice
  1. Blend the rum, 1/2 oz. of coconut cream and the strawberries in a blender to form a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into a tall (Collins or Hurricane) glass.
  2. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the rest of the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice in the blender with crushed ice until smooth.
  3. 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.
  4. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella.
