Pineapple Dole Whip

 

Yesterday, I received an email in my inbox from one of my best friends requesting that I quickly (apparently she had a deadline) come up with a little healthier version of the Dole Whip that everyone loves at Disney World.  I’ve only been to Disney World once when I was really little and so I have idea what this tasty concoction actually tastes like.  I haven’t seen it at DisneyLand…maybe it’s there, I don’t know.   Anyway, I’ve heard from a few people that it’s really good.

All the recipes that I came across call for canned pineapple.  Why?  Why not real, fresh, sweet pineapple?!?!  And I took out the sugar and used a little agave nectar instead.  It’s healthier and a low glycemix index food.  I used my VitaMix to make most of this dessert; however, a BlendTec or food processor would work and an ice cream maker is needed!

For such short notice, I think I did okay.  Not the best picture, but the kids were on top of me begging for their drinks and licking the counter where it spilled a little. I could not keep those little ones away from it.  That is the downfall of blogging and making yummy new treats.  Those darn kids…they just don’t understand a photo shoot and getting a great picture.



Pineapple Whip

Pineapple Whip

2 pineapples, peeled and cored*
1 lime, juiced
2 tbls agave nectar
1 1 /2 cups whole milk, half & half, or heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla

Blend pineapple with lime juice and agave nectar in heavy duty blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into a bowl, cover, and store in the refrigerator until well chilled.

In blender or processor, process cold cream and vanilla until thick and creamy. Add in pineapple mix and blend well.

Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacture's instructions for making ice cream. When it's done, place in a freezer safe container and allow it to harden for an hour or two before serving.

*If you have VitaMix or BlendTec, use the core too! It adds lots of great nutrients!

  1. This sounds great! I always save my cores. I cut them in ice cube size chunks and keep them in a baggie in the freezer for smoothies. Better than ice cubes!

  2. Yum! I love pineapple! I cannot wait to try it.

  3. I imagine what it tastes like. But I love pineapple so I am sure I will love this.

  4. I’m pretty sure they have these at Disneyland too, next to the tiki room. :)

    • WHAT!?!?!? I’ve been missing out all these years. We are planning a trip soon, so the recipe might get updated after I get to actually taste one! LOL! I love the Tiki Room…probably why I never paid attention to what was near there…to excited to sing like the birdies sing!

  5. These look sooooo yummy!

  6. MMMMM these look so yummy! I found you thru the weekly kids co-op thanks for sharing!

  7. They DO have these at Disneyland, at the shack by the Tiki Room. My only real complaint about this clone is that it isn’t dairy-free like the original. (Not that I have a problem with dairy! Just that a real Pineapple Whip has no dairy in it.) Can’t wait to try it. Also, try as a whip float… add a little pineapple juice to your whip. Yum yum!

  8. Can someone send me the real version of this yummy drink? I would love to make it for this summer. My email is jandtfranco@frontier.com

    Thanks so much!

  9. Yum! This looks so good! I like the healthier option! Fresh is always better than canned. Ill have to give this a try this week and see how the kids like it.

  10. The cores are the best part! I think I’m mildly allergic to pineapple, but the cores don’t cause the same problems as the rest of the pineapple. I will be trying this recipe soon!

  11. I feel that this is very easy to make so I will make this pineapple whip. So, yummy and delicious.

  12. I totally have to try this. We were at Disney for the first time in March and those Dole Whips rocked my world. They are so good. Cannot wait to try your version.

  13. How is this recipe in *any* way healthier than original Dole Pineapple Whip??! Dole whip is a NON-DAIRY dessert. Adding heavy cream to it makes it way less healthy even after the whole switching from canned pineapple to fresh pineapple and going all agave nectar on it… Adding heavy cream ruins the whole reason Dole Whip is so amazing in the first place.
