We have smoothies a few times a week. I vary them a little- sometimes I add tropical fruit, other times it’s strawberry coconut- but for the most part they’re predictable. I stocked up when Publix had Noble Juice BOGO and decided to play around with new smoothie flavors. When I tried out this copycat Dole Whip Smoothie Recipe on my kids, they were over the moon! Dessert for breakfast?! Yes, please!
This is a spin-off from the famous Disney Dole Whip, a dairy free pineapple soft serve ice cream. We have a Dole Whip Stand in St Augustine so we can get the real thing easily but this is a nutritious, kid-approved option for unbirthday mornings, lazy Saturdays and any other time you want to spoil the ones you love. I kept it vegan and added a hint of mint to cool off on the hot summer days coming by adding a splash of mint lemonade with aloe. It’s thick enough to serve as soft serve ice cream but you can easily thin it out to smoothie consistency with an additional splash of juice. The end result is as tasty as Dole Whip ice cream but much healthier!
- 1 small banana, frozen and chunked
- 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used canned)
- 1/4 cup Noble Organic Mint Lemonade with Aloe
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- pinch of salt
- Combine ingredients in a blender.
That’s it! This is for a single serving- make yourself or your favorite little person a dessert you can feel great about! Don’t you love it when you find easy ways to make your family feel special and slip in nutritious ingredients?
This is packed with Vitamin C and is cooling + hydrating. We experimented with other combinations- adding Noble Tangerine Juice to make it a float, adding ice cream to make it richer, etc and while my 17 year old would eat all of it, I’d suggest sticking with the recipe we came up with. If you want to make a Dole Whip (not a smoothie), simply omit the banana!
