I don’t have an inside track to Disney recipes, and I don’t work for Dole. I do love the Pineapple ice cream that is served by the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland. Whenever I go to Disneyland I make sure to eat my fill and then for months afterward I think. “I wish I had some of that pineapple ice cream!” Well I now can eat it whenever I want.
When you make this recipe if you don’t have pineapple juice concentrate you can substitute 2 cans of crushed pineapple that has been pureed in your food processor until smooth. But the pineapple juice concentrate really punches up the pineapple flavor.
To those of you who are purists. Yes I know that the ice-cream at Disneyland is dairy free. This recipe is not. I have no idea how to make it this creamy and still dairy free. I think there must be lots of chemicals used.
This recipe uses one of my new favorite things Whipped topping made from THRIVE instant milk. Yes you can make great ice cream from dry milk. Who knew?
