Healthy Dole Pineapple Whip
Today is National Pineapple Day!
Did you know that pineapple has many health benefits due to its wealth of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals?
This includes potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, B6, and folate, as well as soluble and insoluble fiber, and bromelain.
Here is one of my FAVORITE Disney World Treats!
1 pineapple peeled, cored, cut into chunks and frozen (6.5-7 cups)
1/2 cup coconut milk more as needed or unsweetened almond milk
1-3 tablespoons honey, maple syrup or agave (to taste)
Peel, core and cut one fresh ripe pineapple into chunks. Spread chunks on a lined baking sheet and freeze until solid (for at least 24 hours).
Place frozen pineapple chunks in a food processor together with 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Scrape down the sides and add more milk as needed to achieve a smooth consistency.
Taste the pineapple whip and add sweetener to your liking. If the pineapple wasn’t super ripe and sweet, add a little honey, maple syrup or agave. Process once more to incorporate the sweetener.
To achieve a soft serve-like look, fit a piping bag or ziploc with a large open star tip. Fill the pineapple whip into the bag and pipe into serving bowls in a swirling motion.
Nutrition data is generalized – based on 7 cups pineapple, 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1 tablespoon honey divided into 6 servings
This also works GREAT with other frozen fruits..strawberries, blueberries, raspberries peaches… anything!!
