Disney Inspired- Pineapple Whip Dessert

Last weekend my family took a trip to Disneyland, the first for my 2 year old daughter, the 1st for my husband and I together, and as parents, and the first for an extended family vacation with my side of the family. It was a wonderful experience, and maybe I should do a post about that- although I know there are already a lot out there about navigating the Happiest Place on Earth with a toddler and a 8 month pregnant mama.

When trying to decide what to do my weekly segment on, I was inspired by the Dole Pineapple Whip from the Tiki Room. It is my absolute favorite treat on a warm summer's day and something I remembering enjoying during my visits as a kid. I did some research to recreate this at home and tested a few different methods to make the perfect creamy, whipped treat.

Give yourself plenty of time to make this recipe. First you will make the Pineapple mixture and freeze it for a few hours. First Blend together the ingredients shown above. Confession- this is supposed to be a "Dole" Pineapple whip but when I went to pick up the ingredients, at Target, they only had Del Monte, so please forgive me for being a brand traitor here. Use a high power blender, like a Blendtech (worth the investment, I promise), or run the blender for a long time until the mix is nice and smooth. I stored the mixture in a Pampered Chef bowl with a lid (I love, love, this bowl because it always comes in handy). Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours (I froze for 4 then let it sit out for 45 minutes before mixing it).

Next, make your Whipped Cream by combining 1.5 cups heavy whipping cream with 1 Tablespoon of sugar. I used the stand mixer you can also use a hand mixer. Gently stir this into the Pineapple mix until just combined. Pipe your whip into a freezer bag and put in the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Then you can pipe it into bowls for a pretty presentation. 

I let it freeze over night so I had to use an ice-cream scoop to serve it. If you want to pipe it into bowls so it looks pretty, you can place the bowls in the freezer to present the dessert at a later time.

With the weather warming up (here in CA) I hope you enjoying creating this at home with your family.
