I first had this in Hawaii and fell in love with it! It's so easy to make and oh-so-delicious!.

 


Ingredients:


2 cups frozen pineapple chunks

1/4 cup milk (substitute with almond, soy, or coconut milk for dairy-free options)

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon lime juice

2 tablespoons sugar (or honey, to taste)

A pinch of salt

1 cup whipped cream (optional, for a richer texture)

Directions:


Blend the Base: Combine frozen pineapple, milk, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar, and salt in a blender. Involve any eager little helpers by letting them add the pineapple chunks. Blend on high until the mixture achieves a smooth, soft-serve consistency.


Adjust Consistency: If the mixture is too thick, gradually add more milk, a tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired thickness without compromising the whip's creaminess.


Serve with Flair: Transfer the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip and swirl into serving bowls or glasses. No piping bag? A zip-top bag with a corner cut off works well as a substitute.


Add Whipped Cream: For an extra touch of indulgence, top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream.


Variations & Tips:

Tropical Twist: Incorporate a bit of coconut extract or a handful of shredded coconut for those craving tropical flavors.

Banana Alternative: For a lighter version, substitute whipped cream with a frozen banana, blending it with the other ingredients for a creamy, dairy-free option.

Sweet Toppings: Elevate the sweetness with a drizzle of caramel or pineapple syrup before serving.

Frozen is Key: Use frozen pineapple chunks to achieve the signature creamy texture of the whip.

Enjoy Fresh: This dessert is best enjoyed immediately. However, if needed, freeze any leftovers and re-blend before serving to restore its creamy consistency.

This homemade Dole Pineapple Whip is a testament to the simple joys of cooking, offering a burst of joy with every spoonful.
