The Lava Flow Stay-cation Smoothie

It’s no secret this Puerto Rican princess is a sucker for a good ol’ Piña Colada, but here in Hawaii, they put their own island twist on the national drink of my motherland.

They call it, The Lava Flow — clever, right!?

Nothing says tropical paradise more than this frothy, island flavored cocktail — and lucky for you, my Lava Flow Stay-cation Smoothie is a healthy way to enjoy the taste of Hawaii in the comfort of your own home.

This sweet treat helps relax and replenish your body post-workout, or you can add a little of your favorite rum and invite your mermaid sisters over for some pau hana action.
