Improv Challenge: Paleo Pineapple Whip

I think everyone I know who has been to Disney World has had a Dole Whip. I am quite sad to say that during my one visit to the land of Mickey Mouse, I was not informed of  such a luscious treat and have been missing out ever since I saw the first copycat recipe posted.

Disney’s version uses canned pineapple and vanilla ice cream. I wanted to make a Paleo friendly variety since that’s my current lifestyle 90% of the time.

But first, let’s talk about the Improv Challenge. After three years of being our faithful host, Kristen has decided to retire and has passed the Improv torch onto Lesa, who I’m sure will do a great job. In case you’ve missed the dozens of recipes I’ve posted explaining the Improv Challenge, let’s review that again, while we’re at it. Each month there are two ingredients and our challenge is to create a recipe using them. To find out more, or to sign up, head on over to Lesa’s page.

The two ingredients for this month are milk and honey. Part of me wanted to find a savory recipe for these two ingredients, but then I was searching for recipes with the two ingredients and found this and then all thoughts of savory recipes flew out of my head. Sorry?

    • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped (or 12 oz. frozen unsweetened pineapple)
    • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut)
    • 1 tbsp. honey 

1. If using fresh pineapple, you’ll want to freeze this for 12 hours or preferably overnight.
2. Combine ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender (like a Vitamix) until smooth.
3. Transfer to a large zip-top bag. Cut off a corner and pipe into dishes. Serve immediately.

I just don’t even know what to say. It’s delicious. You need this in your life. And even if you bought a Vitamix just to make it, it would still be a hell of a savings over a trip to Disney World. (Well, maybe not if you’re a Florida resident and go by yourself, but you know what I mean!)

  1. I have seen this online, but also have not had the real thing. It looks so tasty and I love how yours is dairy-free. This would make a great treat for my daughters. Great choice! Thanks for participating this month!

  2. I have got to try this! It sounds like the most refreshing thing ever (and as a FL resident with five kids, I can tell you the vitamix is still cheaper 🙂 )

  3. That looks amazingly refreshing!

  4. Oh, that is beautiful! I'll have to make this weekend as one last hurrah for summer.

  5. YUM! Add a shot of rum and… ooooops,
    I've only tried this with canned pineapple because the fresh ones we get here are either green or brown. Hopefully I can find a nice looking one at Sprouts so I can try your recipe.

  6. I see the Pineapple Whips everywhere, but I've never had one. I will need to remedy that. 🙂 A Paleo version sounds even better. Great challenge choice!
