Copycat Disney’s Pineapple Dole Whip

If you’ve ever had Disney’s pineapple dole whip, you know it can be addicting! The same can be said for that delicious pineapple upside down cake. While neither of these pineapple desserts is particularly healthy, we thought we could come up with a copycat recipe that’s healthier and satisfies your taste buds.

Not All Pineapple Desserts are Created Equal

Many people think that since pineapple is a fruit it’s a great ingredient for making all sorts of pineapple desserts. While pineapple itself is a fruit filled with fiber and vitamins, pineapple desserts that have all those added sugars aren’t very healthy.

That’s why pineapple upside down cake is touted as a “healthy” cake just because it has lots of fruit. The same can be said about Disney’s pineapple whip. It’s loaded with refined sugar. This recipe cuts the sugar content in half and uses raw honey instead.

Ditch the cake and refined sugar and try this refreshing recipe instead!

If you’ve got super ripe pineapple, feel free to skip the honey. Really ripened fruit tastes sweeter and you can often skip that step. This dessert is also great because it’s dairy free and uses dairy substitutes like coconut milk (or almond if you like that better.)

Don’t forget to freeze (at least 4 hours) your pineapple chunks first before making this yummy dessert.
