I love Disneyland. But the lines to get anything or ride anything was always insane. We’d spend the whole day there but only get to ride 4 or 5 rides if we get lucky!
Disneyland has been closed for a while now due to COVID 19. I know that a lot of us miss going but I’m not really sure “when” I’ll feel it’s okay to go. This recipe came about as a gentle reminder of what it’s been like and it will tide us over until the time comes that we can go enjoy Disneyland again.
A Disneyland treat that we have to have every time we go there is the Dole Pineapple Float (aside from everything else that is a “must try”)!
A couple of years ago I saw the Dole mix for sale in Amazon and of course, I bought it! At around $30 for a 4 pound bag, it is a lot cheaper than buying it in the “happiest place on earth”. Plus you get to have it anytime, in your own home! Like times right now…when Disneyland is closed.
It took a bit of tries to get this just right as the instructions on the back of the package is meant for business sized batches. I read through the reviews in Amazon and got this perfect proportion for home sized ice cream makers.
Disclosure: I have 4 ice cream makers. 😱 (This girl’s gotta have options!) Two of them have built in compressors and the other two uses salt and ice, both of which has an electric option to stir, and one that allows you to work for your treat by manually churning it. Totally hard work!
At one time I also had those that needed the liner to kind of live in your freezer. If you know me, you’ll know my freezer doesn’t have that big a space to lease. And who remembers to put those things in the freezer 24 hours before you need them? Definitely not me. Not convenient for cravings that suddenly come out of nowhere.
Of course, the easiest to use are the one’s with compressors. You basically just plug it in, pour your mixed ingredients in and wait….and that is what I used today as this was a spur of the moment treat. Yes, after a few cool days, we’re back at 106 HOT today!
I used the Lello Nemox gelato chef for this batch and we were enjoying this sweet, cold treat 30 minutes after I poured in the mixture. I hope you’ll try this soon! It is so good I think I might just have to make another batch.
1 cup Dole Pineapple Soft Serve mix
1 1/2 cups cold whole milk
1 1/2 cups cold water
1. Mix everything in a medium sized bowl until the Pineapple mix is dissolved.
2. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the instructions.
3. You can pour some cold pineapple juice into a glass, scoop some of this soft serve and place a cherry on top – or do as I do and just grab a bowl and dig in. Bliss!
