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?

I can’t believe we are already on week 3 of  my Date Night series! It has really been so fun and this weeks was no exception. One of our absolute favorite things to do when at Disney is eat. Ya we love the food. We used to head out after to work to the Magic Kingdom for some Casey’s mini corn dogs, dole whip floats, and other things get a spot for the night time parade and then watch Wishes. We would literally didn’t even leave the Main Street area. While I could not completely recreate this exact date you better believe I did the best I could!

The first thing I wanted to figure out was a fun activity to add in other than just eating. I remembered we had Disney Scene It game ( you can get yours here) , and I knew that trivia was the perfect addition to the evening. While Hub Grass was not really a thing when we lived there, it is now so the best I could do to recreate this was a picnic on the ground with a green ( ya I know it’s mint green) blanket.



Casey’s Corner mini corn dogs are my favorite, even though I sure do miss the “plastic” cheese that made them taste even better! While I could have made them myself and they would have tasted much better there were just other things I wanted to make. Also I am a toddler Mama my time is very limited. The nuggets we used are just the State Fair brand mini corn dogs. Trust me they are not Casey’s mini corn dogs and I will be working up a recipe for these puppies so I can have them at home. We also made some shoe string fries to go along with the Casey’s theme.

It’s just not Magic Kingdom to me without a Dole Whip float. I recently came up with a recipe for a Dairy Free Dole Whip inspired popsicle (coming to the blog on Monday) so we did miniature Dole Whip Floats that way. They were so good, and of course easy!

Once I was completing things I realized we had way too many sweet treats! Those seem to be our favorite in the kingdom. We added some delicious homemade Mickey Rice Krispy treats dipped in chocolate and M&M’s just like our favorite from the Main Street Confectionary.

When I was walking through Trader Joe’s one day I came across these mini churros and knew they were also perfect for this date night. Of course my husband insisted on some chocolate sauce too. I’m more all about eating them as they are, but to each their own. Also if you love churros these did not disappoint so head on over to your local Trader Joe’s!

Magic Kingdom makes me think of all the Disney classics. Playing the Disney Scene it Trivia game and eating all our favorite Magic Kingdom snacks helped in making it almost feel as if we were HOME. Plus who doesn’t love to get competitive with their spouse, it’s fun right? Make sure to share with me your at home Disney dates. Happy Planning!
