I am obsessed with Disney world. I always have been. I have stress dreams monthly about not going back. I tried to convince Kevin that Disney World would be the perfect honeymoon location, but he didn't go for it. Not even the promise of super sweet R2D2 Mickey Ears hats could sway him.
But, like the incredibly sweet and awesome and handsome guy he is, he kept his eyes open for deals. Which he found for this upcoming January, 5 months before our wedding. All of this backstory is irrelevant because...
And what's amazing is that now they have so much more stuff than the last time I went, like a whole new area of Magic Kingdom, and the super cool wrist bands that are your tickets and fastpasses and stuff. I'm really excited, obvi.
So to pump myself up, and try to get Kevin more than just moderately excited to go, we whipped (get it?) up a batch of Dole Whip, one of the most amazing snacks you can get at Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom.
You will need:
- 2 20 ounce cans crushed pineapple
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 8 ounce container non-dairy whipped topping (Cool Whip)
- pineapple juice, chilled, for serving
Add the whipped topping and process again until smooth. I may have overfilled it a little bit, not sure what size blender the original recipe used, but this just meant more spoonfuls of cool whip to eat.
To serve, fill a cup halfway full with pineapple juice. Add the frozen mixture to fill the cup. I just plopped the ice cream into the cups because I was at Kevin's house and didn't have a lot of other options. Didn't look the fanciest, and I didn't have my expensive cliche paper straws to dress it up with, either.
But who cares? It was awesome. I've got another Disney recipe coming up, and hopefully a few others before Christmas! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and don't forget to buy a billion copies of Starting from Scratch for all your friends and family.
