One of my FAVORITE things to do in Hawaii was go to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. I begged to go there every day that we were there and I was lucky enough to get to go there twice. Going and getting one of these is worth a trip to Hawaii. Soft serve creamy pineapple ice cream with pineapple juice surrounding it making it the best ice cream float you will have!
It was so fun seeing how huge the planation is and how the pineapple grow and are harvested. After walking around for a bit, we HAD to get a pineapple whip. It literally blows your mind with how amazing it is. Nothing compares to a Hawaiian pineapple and they are perfectly ripe and sweet!
I couldn’t wait to get home and try this recipe for homemade pineapple whips! They were easy to make and really did resemble a dole pineapple whip. They are soft and creamy and so delicious! They will definitely hold you over until you can get to Hawaii. They are absolutely delicious! Apparently they are in such high demand they now serve them at all Six Flags and at Disneyland. I am more excited to get another one in November than go to Disneyland!
