Even if you've never been to a Disney theme park, you know the lure of Dole Whip. This sweet and creamy frozen pineapple treat is a delicious hybrid of soft-serve and pineapple sorbet — but even better. No wonder it's so often associated with a place where dreams come true.
Here's the good news: There's no travel required for our Disney-inspired pineapple whip. You just need five basic ingredients and a blender.
Just Five Ingredients
Combined with pineapple juice, lemon juice, coconut milk, and a spoonful of sugar, frozen pineapple is the key ingredient behind this vegan dessert's soft and airy consistency. While you can certainly freeze your own pineapple chunks, it's hard to beat the convenience of a purchased bag.
If you just can't wait a minute longer, go ahead and dig your spoon in as soon as the pineapple whip is ready. But eat fast because it can get seriously melty. I recommend popping it into the freezer for about an hour, although no more than two, and it'll keep that icy-cool soft-serve consistency without melting too quickly.
Serves 4 (about 5 to 6 cups)
frozen pineapple chunks
unsweetened pineapple juice
unsweetened coconut milk
fresh lemon juice
Place the frozen pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut milk, lemon juice, and sugar in the pitcher of a high-powered blender or food processor. Process continually until the fruit is completely broken down and the mixture takes on the texture of light and airy soft-serve ice cream, 2 to 4 minutes.
Transfer to a resealable container and freeze for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
Storage: Store leftovers in a sealed container in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, let the container sit at room temperature for 10 minutes, then whip in the blender until smooth.
