Dole Whip Pineapple Ice Cream
Blendtech sent out this recipe this week, which I immediately tried out. In order to make it adaptable to Paleo and more in line with speed cooking needs, I changed a few things here and there. It turned out delicious.
As happens once and a while, my mistakes turn out to be new ways to do things:)
I misread the amount of pineapple juice thinking their 1-2 cups was 1/2 cup.
Dole Whip Copycat Paleo Adapted
“Do you love the frozen pineapple treat but don’t want to go looking for a place that serves this specialty? Make this delicious dairy-free dessert yourself in seconds” – Blendtech
5 fl oz unsweetened Almond Milk
5 fl oz Coconut Milk
(I used 10 oz light Coconut Milk from can. Using coconut milk from carton or part almond milk would work well too.)
1/4 to 1/2 or less cup Pineapple Juice
(Next time I will test using more frozen pineapple and possibly no juice.)
2 1⁄2 cups Pineapple Chunks, frozen (You may need to increase some on frozen pineapple or ice for consistency you desire.)
2 TBLS Raw Honey
2 packets Truvia (form of stevia) OR two droppers Liquid Organic Stevia Leaf Extract
1 pinch Salt
1/2 cup Crushed Ice
How To Make
Place into blender in order. Put crushed ice in last. Blend a little at a time after first ingredients are in blender until all blended, then add ice, adding frozen pineapple a little at a time.
The original recipe called for placing mixture into large plastic bag for 30 minutes to an hour…..and then cutting whole in end and swirling it into cups. My adapted version doesn’t need this wait time, it comes out a great consistency after adding the crushed ice.
Refreshing Light Summer Dessert
During summertime, I love having watermelon or cantaloupe as dessert. This one makes a great refreshing summer dessert too.
