Lava Flows

We had a Hawaiian themed dinner the other night and it was so much fun! I love making themed dinners. Our menu consisted of Hawaiian Sammies, Lava Flows, Fresh Pineapple, and Mango. It was a huge hit.
The Lava Flow drinks were AMAZING! They were a little bit of work, but so worth it! The recipe makes a lot and I'm so glad because I just kept refilling my cup and drinking to my hearts content. Mmmm... so delicious!

Lava Flows

46 oz pineapple juice
40 oz coconut milk
1 pint half and half
ice
frozen strawberries in syrup
2 tablespoons water
clear cups
straws

The measurements aren't very exact so you just have to feel your way through the recipe. It's one part pineapple juice to one part coconut milk. Usually it takes about three cans of coconut milk to one big can of pineapple juice. Then you add half and half until it turns white. In a separate bowl puree strawberries, sugar and water. Or you can puree frozen strawberries in syrup with a little water that seems to work a little better. You want it to be somewhat thick, almost like a syrup texture. Pour strawberries in the cup about an half an inch to an inch high. Put ice in your blender and pour the coconut mix in unitl it's at an even height with the ice. Blend, then pour in the cup with strawberry mix. The strawberries should come up the sides of the cup. If it doesn't, either thin out your strawberries a little bit, or before pouring the coconut take the cup and swish the strawberries around so they stick on the sides of the cup. I had to think out my strawberries the first time I tried it. Enjoy!
