A few weeks ago, I was standing in my kitchen and the only thing I wanted was Dole Whip. It was like nothing else in the world or in my refrigerator sounded good to me. Now, theoretically I could have gone to Dole and gotten my hands on some pretty easily, but — I knew there had to be a way to satisfy my craving with ingredients I already had on hand! I mean come on – how many tutorials have you seen on Pinterest that are something like “Make Your Own Dole Whip Just Like Disneyland!”
Dairy Free Dole Whip Smoothie
My issue is that every tutorial I saw required a banana of some sort. Now, I know this is going to sound odd to all of you reading, but unless it’s a banana bread, banana bar or banana muffin – I don’t want any parts of it. I don’t like banana flavor in my smoothies and especially not in my Dole Whip. I know – weird, but true. Give me pineapple only, thank you very much!
So I set out to create my own Dole Whip Smoothie that satisfied what I wanted and didn’t involve bananas, yet was still creamy and sweet. A tall order, I know.
Admittedly, I’m kind of patting myself on the back over here. I didn’t get a whip, definitely more of a smoothie, but it 100% checked the flavor box, so much so that I made another one later that night for Dane to try.
To recreate this for yourself, you will need:
2 cups of frozen pineapple chunks
1 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp. agave
splash lemon juice
splash pineapple juice
1. Place everything in your Vitamix and blend on the Frozen Desserts setting (if you have it) or medium-high.
2. Pour into a festive pineapple tumbler and enjoy 🙂
Feel free to double or triple the recipe as needed and be sure to let me know what you think! If you liked this post, you might also enjoy my Skinny Tangerine Jalapeno Margarita or Coconut Berry Kombucha Cocktail!
