These smooth and creamy Dole Whips will bring back memories of your favorite treat at Disney.
If you’ve ever been to Disneyland there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve had their famous Dole Whip. Making a stop at Tiki’s Juice Bar is one of the first stops of many when they walk through those magical gates. I love the smooth, creaminess of Dole Whips and could eat them everyday; unfortunately I live about 11 hours from Disneyland and even if I did live closer I couldn’t justify going to Disney every time this tropical craving struck.
So in true frugal fashion I scoured the internet (a.k.a. Pinterest) for recipes. To get the look of the Dole Whip I would need an ice cream maker; and I didn’t have that, so I knew making a true copy cat recipe was out of the question. But what I did have was my favorite kitchen appliance, my Blendtec! I also didn’t have a lot of time. Most recipes called for letting the whip sit for a few hours in the freezer, which you can do with this recipe too if you want more of a slush-y texture. We ate ours straight out of the blender, well we poured it in to glasses first, and they were perfect. Smooth, creamy and packed full of pineapple goodnes; just how I remember the original Dole Whip being. So if you have a craving for this Disney classic, don’t run to Disneyland (ok well if you can, do go to Disneyland and ride Pirates for me while you’re there), just head into your kitchen!
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
- 3/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp lime juice
- Place all 3 ingredients in Twister Jar and blend on low for 30-40 seconds, twisting the lid counter clockwise until desired consistency is reached.
- Place crushed pineapple, whipped cream, pineapple juice, lemon juice and lime juice in blender jar. If your blender has an ice cream button blend on ice cream, if not blend on low for 20 seconds and then high for 20 seconds.
- Top with whip cream from a can and maraschino cherry (optional)
- For a slushier treat let sit in freezer for 1-2 hours and blend on low for 10 seconds before serving.
I couldn’t have made this without my Blendtec, especially the Whipped Cream, which is my new favorite recipe, and because I was super busy last month for my one year blogiversary I decided to celebrate my 13 month blogiversary by giving one lucky reader my favorite-ist of favorite things; a Blendtec! One of you is going win the Designer 725 Blendtec with Wildside+ jar AND Twister Jar. I use my Blendtec at least 3 times a week and I can’t wait for you to see how great it is too!
