bringing the magic of dole whips home
with one simple recipe
As summer is in full swing, long sunny days reign supreme, and we have been hitting high humid 90's every day here in Chicago. Lately, I have been craving those magical little icey sweet treats, we all know and love so much... DOLE WHIPS!! But with my next Disney trip 3 months away, there are no dole whips in my near future.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands and try to replicate the fresh frozen pineapple delights here at home.
This recipe is pretty easy and only really requires 2 ingredients.
4 cups of frozen pineapple chunks (I used 1 fresh pineapple, cut it up and froze it, 1 pineapple equals about 4 cups)
1 cup of almond milk (coconut milk, soy milk, hemp milk, etc.)
- Take your frozen pineapple and your choice of nut milk, and place in a food processor or blender.
- Blend until all of the pineapple chunks have been become smooth. You may have to stop and shake up your blender a few times to achieve this. I used a Nutribullet.
- Scoop out your fresh Dole Whip, I like to eat mine out of a mason jar, and enjoy*. This recipe is meant to be enjoyed right away, as Dole Whips are soft serve. Freezing your fresh Dole Whip will give a different consistency.
I love a Dole Whip Swirl, so I do alternating layers of my homemade Dole Whip with my favorite vegan vanilla bean ice cream!
I then sit back, relax, and close my eyes, dreaming that I am sitting poolside at the Polynesian Village Resort.
Let me know how your Dole Whip turns out :) Can't wait to hear!
