Yesterday my husband completed our semi-annual event where the interior of our car gets a thorough tidying…
This Dole Whip is a creamy smooth pineapple frozen treat… just like at Disney! Made with only 3 ingredients and a blender!
I had heard that a trip to Disney wouldn’t be complete without getting a Pineapple Dole Whip. Whoever said that wasn’t kidding. When you’re out in the blistering sun all day, you need to cool down! What better way than with a tropical, sweet, smooth, melty treat?
The instant I tasted the legendary Dole Whip, I knew I had to recreate it in my own kitchen!
Now I can enjoy a Dole Whip whenever I want and be magically transported back to Disney… at least in my imagination.
a dietitian eating ice cream?
You’ll notice that there’s real ice cream in this recipe. You might be surprised to see that as an ingredient from a Dietitian’s recipe. But I’m not shy about it. I love desserts! I don’t even call it a guilty pleasure because I feel 0% guilt in enjoying ice cream. I used to feel guilty though. You can read my story here.
I used to overeat then feel guilty about it. Then I’d undereat to redeem myself. Then I’d overeat again and the whole cycle would repeat itself over and over and over again! It was exhausting! But as I started to forge a joyful relationship with food, I learned how to enjoy my favourite foods without fear of losing control and overeating them. And now I have the immense pleasure of coaching others to the same goal in my I Quit Overeating online program!

why this pineapple dole whip is a smart choice
This recipe is a nice compromise between eating a) ice cream and b) fruit. It combines the best of both worlds! Pineapple is a good source of Vitamin C and fibre. And ice cream is just delicious 🙂
