Stan and I are celebrating our One Year Anniversary today. Long story short, things were too hectic on the day of our actual anniversary, so tonight I’m surprising Stan with a Hawaiian inspired feast. In honor of our incredible honeymoon in Hawaii. And what better way to celebrate the anniversary of our week in Disney’s Aulani then creating one of Disney’s signature and more popular treats:
Now for those of you who have not had the opportunity to enjoy this magical pineapple delight, make sure you put it on your Disney To-Do List right away. My dad and I make a bee-line for to Adventureland every trip to Magic Kingdom and I have always pined for it once I get back home. Whenever I try to search for it, the only pineapple ice cream has coconut in it. (and I’m not a huge fan of coconut…i know.)
Fortunate for us, I found the perfect recipe from PopSugar!
2 (20-ounce) cans Dole crushed pineapple
2 tablespoons pineapple juice (From the Can of Pineapple)
2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh (1 Lemon)
2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh (1 Lime)
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
- Drain pineapple, reserving 2 tablespoons of the liquid.
- Into a blender, place pineapple, reserved pineapple juice, lemon juice, lime juice, and sugar, and blend until smooth. (Important that you make sure it’s smooth)
- Pour the mixture into two 1-quart freezer bags and store bags flat in the freezer for 1 1/2 hours or until the mixture is a slushy consistency.
- In a large bowl, gently fold the pineapple slush into the whipped cream until incorporated. Cover bowl and return to the freezer for at least an hour or until the mixture is frozen.
For Dessert, in addition to the Dole Whip, I made Hawaiian Wedding Cake.
