Summer Treat!

The last day of school is quickly approaching, in fact it’s Thursday around these parts! The kids are going to be home and will be looking for treats to cool them off. That’s what I’ve got for you today.

gift cards

My dad has a good friend who did some much needed repair work around his house as a favor. This friend is taking his grand-kids to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and my dad wanted to get him a little something as a thank you. I picked up some Disneyland gift cards for him to enclose in the thank you card … and that reminded me that I had yet to post the recipe for this Disneyland all-time-favorite cool treat.

Dole Whip!

long lines

The Dole Whip is so popular that the lines to get one are often longer than the lines at some attractions. On average, 1.3 million Dole Whips are purchased per year at Disney Parks and Resorts. At Disneyland alone, 600,000 Dole Whips are sold each year.

If you are the first person in line when the stand opens and you order a Dole Whip, you receive a “First Dole Whip of the Day” button to wear with pride as you walk around the park. Everyone will be envious! Yeah, they’re that popular.

I’ve got a homemade version for you to make. You won’t get a button but…

No lines!
Instant delicious gratification!

For an authentic Disney Dole Whip presentation, place frozen mixture into a ziplock bag, seal and cut off one corner of the ziplock to create a piping bag. Pipe the pineapple whip into 6 glasses or bowls, top each with a dollop of the remaining 1/2 cup whipped cream and serve immediately.

I do not think I have ever had this at Disneyland before.

I don’t think you have either. Connor and I had it last time and we LOVED it! I think the line was always too long when we were all there.
