I loved being in Hawaii and my absolute favorite drink there was a Lava Flow. I finally found a recipe for one in the lastest issue of Cuisine at Home to share with you. Perfect for this hot summer weather! Feel free to experiment and change things to your taste. (Val…I hope you come over to share this with me!)
1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled
2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 ripe bananas, peeled and chopped (2 cups)
1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups cream of coconut (buy it in the can at Albertson’s)
2 cups ice cubes
Puree strawberries in blender until liquefied (you should have 2 cups pureed strawberries). Set puree aside and rinse blender pitcher.
Puree the ice cream, bananas, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut in blender. Add ice and puree until smooth and creamy.
To serve, divide strawberry puree among 8 glasses, then pour 1 cup ice cream mixture into each glass. Swirl slightly with a swizzle stick or spoon.
