So here I am again with another popsicle recipe! Popsicles have been a saving grace through toddler teething and these already hot summer days. They seriously make my child so happy. When we are at Disney I love to a Dole Whip or Dole Whip float is my absolute FAVORITE treat, and my favorite part is they are dairy free. With a daughter that has a dairy allergy when I decided on these Dole Whip inspired popsicles, they had to be dairy free too. We had tried some homemade dole whip recipes so those helped create this inspiration a bit.

So here is what you need:

1 bag of Frozen Pineapple

1 can of coconut cream

12 oz of pineapple juice ( I used 2 of the small size cans like these)

1 – 2 TBS of Honey or Agave Nectar to taste

Popsicle Molds


 

Use a blender and add in frozen pineapple, pineapple juice and the coconut cream. You could also use a large  can of pineapple with the juice if you wanted I just don’t love canned pineapple. Once it is mostly blended add in honey or agave nectar ( I used agave and did 2tbs, I tasted until it was just right).

After all ingredients are blended together and consistency is to your liking pour mixture into your popsicle molds. Let the popsicles freeze for at least 24 hours. I had to run under warm water over them get them out. I have a small skinny freezer so it was easier to wrap in wax paper and store in a  freezer bag. My husband and I even used them in our own version of Dole Whip floats on our Magic Kingdom Inspired Date Night which you can find here.These made 4 of the bigger popsicles and 8 smaller ones, and left enough for my daughter to drink like it was a smoothie. If you are limited on popsicles molds you might want to cut the recipe in half.

These don’t taste just like my beloved Disney Dole Whip however they do hit the spot. Any recipe I have found for Dole Whip just isn’t the same but at least they can fill the void in between trips. You will get a bit of a coconut flavor but I honestly couldn’t tell all that much. These went fast, and yet again I can’t seem to keep any popsicles we have been making stocked in the freezer. I’m thinking about trying these subbed with other fruits, maybe some strawberries. What do you think?

“Grey Stuff” Inspired No Bake Cheesecake

“Grey Stuff” Inspired No Bake Cheesecake

 

The Live Action Beauty and the Beast movie comes out on Blue Ray/DVD today! If you have yet to see it go out and get a copy because Disney did an absolutely amazing job with this LIVE action remake of an animated classic. You can order it here. I also happen to be celebrating my 8th wedding anniversary with my husband today so I have a little Beauty and the Beast date night in planned for the evening. I am excited for him to see the movie for the first time.

With the Beauty and the Beast theme in mind I wanted to whip up a dessert for the evening. Of course the “Grey Stuff”came to my mind but I wanted to play a twist on it a bit. After much thought and looking through my dessert board on Pinterest to see if anything gave me that inspiration, I decided on a Grey Stuff Inspired No Bake Cheesecake.

This was super easy to make, and I really enjoy the flavor of it more than the cool whip flavored recipe that is floating around, and is used in the park.

Here is what you need:

18 Oreos

10 oz of cream cheese softened

1.5 oz of milk ( I used Ripple Milk( dairy free(

1 packet of Simply Jello Vanilla Pudding

wine glass, jars, or whatever you would like to serve it in

Lay your cream cheese out to soften. Mix 1 cup of the milk with the pudding mix until it thickens, then add in  12 of the crushed Oreos. You can crush Oreos by placing in a baggy and using a cup or rolling pin. For the first 12 I left the cream in the center. Mix together. Remove the filling from the remaining 6 Oreos and add to the mixture, with the cream cheese. Mix all together and then refrigerate for one hour. Crush the remaining 6 Oreos, divide and place in bottom of your serving dish of choice. Top with the cheesecake mixture.

You can spoon it in or use a pipping bag which I found much easier with using wine glasses. Place back in the fridge for a few hours before serving. Mine made these 2 huge wine glasses and 2 small cheesecakes, which we enjoyed as soon as they were set. You could definitely get 6-8 servings out of this depending on how you portion them.

Pop in the animated classic or the new LIVE action film, and enjoy this tasty treat with the entire family, or just your significant other!
