Disney World Inspired- Pineapple Smoothie

A few weeks after my children began their summer break from school we celebrated with our first ever trip to Disney World.

I anxiously looked forward to trying a Dole Float.

I enjoyed the vanilla-pineapple swirl.  It was so refreshing in the sticky Florida heat.

With just a few simple ingredients and a bunch of ice,

I concocted my own version of the Disney favorite that can be blended in your own kitchen.

It's not quite the same as the Disney treat, but it still tastes yummy.


Ingredients 
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice(do not drain)
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 
1 tsp vanilla extract
8 ice cubes
pinch of salt

Directions 
Using your blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.  Enjoy!

  1. Looks yummy and refreshing. I wonder how it would be if you froze it into pops? I just ordered some pop molds and they should be here soon for Amazon.. ( I am an Amazon junkie).

    Since I am off sugar, I will try replacing the condensed milk with a frozen banana and also freeze the pineapple. I am making some great treats with frozen fruit and then thin the blended frozen fruit with a bit of 1% milk. Cant wait to try this, I have the can of pineapple in the cabinet.

    I see you and I use the same vanilla... that brand is so aromatic.

    I so hope you had a wonderful time there and will post some pictures.

  7. Pineapple really is the best when it's hot, isn't it?

    I save the left over juice in a can and use it to sweeten my ice tea. It's SO good!

  25. I was just wondering today if canned pineapple would work in smoothies since I never see frozen around... guess so!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This looks good! I'll have to try it to reminisce of my Disney days!

    Andrea - I have been freezing canned pineapple for smoothies & it works well! I empty the can of the juice and put the pineapple chunks in a baggie and then in the freezer.

  30. Every time we go to Disneyland we always get a Dole Pineapple float! This looks good and I'm sure it will help with our cravings in between!

  31. Haven't been to Disney since 2008, but I remember the great foods and drinks there. I may have to try this but add a little something extra to make it an adult drink!
