Last summer on our trip to Disneyland, I got to try the famous Dole Whip frozen treat. It was so delicious! I love pineapple, and the texture was just phenomenal. I’ve seen lots of copycat Dole Whips recipes floating around the internet, and got inspired to create something a bit different—a copycat Dole Whip smoothie, using easy ingredients!
Rather than use ice cream or heavy whipping cream, however, I decided to use Vanilla Creamer from Left Field Farms, and a bit of frozen whipped topping, to give it a creamy texture and rich flavor. I intentionally made it creamy like a smoothie rather than just like the original, but I have a tip down below if you prefer it that way!
Copycat Dole Whip Smoothie
They are super simple to make with just 4 ingredients:
- Frozen pineapple chunks (2 cups)
- Large scoop (about 1/2 cup) of frozen whipped topping
- Left Field Farms Vanilla Coffee Creamer (3/4 cup)
- 6 oz of pineapple juice
To prepare, simply add all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Don’t worry about leftover pineapple chunks, as they taste great mixed in!
The result is a refreshing and tropical smoothie that tastes likes a mini vacation in a glass. YUM!
Here is a quick video showing you just how easy it is to make.
You can also freeze the smoothie to get more of the original Dole Whip experience (which is similar to a soft-serve texture if you have never had it!).
I love the slight flavor boost that you get from the Vanilla Creamer—it adds just the right touch of sweetness. You could also do a variation on flavors—Frozen strawberries paired with Left Field Sweet & Creamy Coffee Creamer is just as good if you are not a fan of pineapple!
Left Field Farms Non-GMO creamers are made with real sugar, real cream and they were the first national dairy brand to be Non-GMO project certified, which makes it even better! All of their flavors are available at Wal-Mart, so grab some the next time you are out!
