No Churn Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

This No Churn Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Ice Cream is phenomenal! Creamy, smooth peanut butter ice cream with thick, gooey fudge ripples and peanut butter cups, all without an ice cream maker! This No Churn Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Ice Cream is a delicious mouthful! Super easy, homemade, no-churn and absolutely delightful!

So I kind of realized I live in a bubble. And I’m trying to fix it, okay?

I know, I know. I’m 25 and a certified recluse. I work from home, I relax at home, I prefer staying at home… I am the textbook definition of a homebody.

BUT I was so sick of being cooped up in my house that I went exploring in neighboring cities and I had a blast! Sometimes you just need to be a tourist in your own town, ya know?

I spent too much money at antique shops finding unique treasures and cool food props, and then stopped at a little ice cream shop to do some window shopping since I was still full from lunch. The ice cream parlor had a peanut butter fudge ice cream which sounded so good if I hadn’t gorged myself on tater tots an hour prior. Tater tots, if you didn’t know, are my weakness. Actually, most potato products are. Fun fact #4573 about Hayley. I know you were dying to know that!

So I got home and recreated this fantastical ice cream flavor for you and I have to say, I’m pretty darn pleased with the outcome. This ice cream is SO creamy, peanut buttery and smooth with chunks of peanut butter cups and gooey ribbons of fudge. I decided to add peanut butter cups into the ice cream because I’m a texture kinda girl and love having some kind of add-in for whatever ice cream/froyo/soft serve I’m eating. You could always add chopped peanuts or chocolate chips to this too!

But whatever you do, do yourself a flavor and make it! It’s so perfect.

It starts with the classic no-churn ice cream base: sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream. If you didn’t know you could make ice cream with those two ingredients, well, I’m here to let you know that you CAN and SHOULD! It couldn’t be simpler.

This No Churn Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Ice Cream is phenomenal! Creamy, smooth peanut butter ice cream with thick, gooey fudge ripples and peanut butter cups, all without an ice cream maker! Whip up some whipped cream with a teensy bit of sugar until stiff peaks form. Then fold in a mixture of smooth peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk until it’s all combined and friendly. Pour half of it into a freezer-safe container with a lid (or a loaf pan), sprinkle on some chopped PB cups and drizzle a few ribbons of fudge on top. Then repeat the layers, freeze it for at least 8 hours, and then chow down!

OMG.

No Churn Caramel Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream

This No Churn Caramel Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream is INCREDIBLE! So easy, comes together quickly and has amazing homemade flavor!Dude.

This No Churn Caramel Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream is kinda sorta a wonder of the world.

One you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home without a bunch of tourists snapping photos of you. Unless you’re into that kinda thing.

Otherwise, rejoice! – because this ice cream is made without an ice cream maker and tastes every bit as rich and creamy as the store-bought or ice cream parlor kinds. Only I guarantee they don’t have any flavor near as awesome as this one!

If you follow me on Facebook (which hi, you totally should!) you would have seen that I posted a Facebook Live video of myself making no-churn ice cream last week. If you haven’t seen it, pop on over to my page, find the Videos tab on the left, and click the Homemade No-Churn Ice Cream one! Then prepare to be amazed by both my culinary prowess and my acting chops. Quick, someone call Hollywood! I’m destined to play the funny fat girl sidekick to some skinny Zooey Deschanel-type on an ABC sitcom.

In the Facebook Live video, I made a vanilla ice cream base filled with mini M&M’s, chopped Butterfinger candy bars, and caramel sauce… and ladies and gents, it was divine. Y’all went crazy for it, and at the end of the video, I announced I had made this ice cream flavor too, so here we are!

This no-churn ice cream base is extremely versatile. Seriously – stir in whatever you want. Not even joking. The base is very simple: whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk. Add a little sugar if you want a sweeter base, or maybe even some vanilla extract. If you’re piling in a ton of sugary things, maybe skip the sugar. But otherwise, two basic ingredients that you probably have on hand. SO SIMPLE.

This No Churn Caramel Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream is INCREDIBLE! So easy, comes together quickly and has amazing homemade flavor!And for this particular concoction, I stirred in some cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel sauce and chopped up Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies, because it’s 2016, dangit, and we’re going to eat Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream.

So let’s get eating!!

Root Beer Float Pie

This Root Beer Float Pie is perfect! Creamy, dreamy, icy and sweet, it's packed with that nostalgic, old-fashioned root beer flavor!I am someone who has to have dessert after dinner every night.

I don’t know how it started, but it’s impossible to stop. Plus, it’s a little scoop of ice cream or a couple of cookies. It’s not like I’m clearing out the dessert section at Home Town Buffet.

…though don’t put it past me.

But trying to eat dessert when I’m trying to eat healthier is hard. Berries aren’t dessert for me. Fruit just is so not dessert. It’s fruit, it’s sweet, but dessert it is not. And drinking hot cocoa to “fix my chocolate cravings” doesn’t do it. Plus, hot cocoa in this heat? I’d sooner wear a bikini to the mall… and trust me, no one wants that. NO ONE.

But then I remember things like root beer floats and I’m like, I can get down on this. Root beer plus ice cream equals deliciousness; it’s simple math. And then I saw that I could make this into pie and I thought it was just genius.

This Root Beer Float Pie is perfect! Creamy, dreamy, icy and sweet, it's packed with that nostalgic, old-fashioned root beer flavor!This pie tastes exactly like a root beer float. Like, to the T. And you can make it lower-cal, which rocks my dessert-loving socks, so it’s perfect. Creamy, sasparilla-y, ultra deliciousness.

Take that, dessert.

This Root Beer Float Pie is creamy, dreamy, and ultra delicious! You'll be shocked at how close to a root beer float it tastes!
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup good quality root beer
  • ½ cup milk (I used 1%, but skim may be used)
  • 1 (4-serving size) box instant vanilla pudding mix (sugar free may be used)
  • 1-2 Tbsp root beer extract (start with one Tablespoon and add more if you prefer a stronger root beer flavor. If you want a really light root beer flavor, only use a couple teaspoons and adjust from there)
  • 1 (8 oz) tub Cool Whip Free, thawed
  • 1 prepared graham cracker crust
  • Cherries and whipped cream, for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the root beer, milk, root beer concentrate and pudding mix for 2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Fold in the Cool Whip until mixture is uniform and combined.
  2. Pour the mixture into the prepared graham cracker crust and freeze for approx. 8 hours or overnight. Once frozen, cut into slices and garnish with whipped cream and cherries, if desired. Store pie in freezer.

This Root Beer Float Pie is perfect! Creamy, dreamy, icy and sweet, it's packed with that nostalgic, old-fashioned root beer flavor!This pie tastes phenomenal straight from the freezer: it’s creamy, dreamy, icy and just totally fab. The root beer flavor is so strong in this pie which makes me nostalgic for my childhood days in the summertime sippin’ on some A&W. If you prefer a more subtle flavor of root beer, omit the concentrate – it’s what gives this pie that true, old-fashioned root beer flavor we all know and love!

I hope you enjoy!

The Best Frozen Hot Chocolate

These Frozen Hot Chocolates are the BEST ever! Frosty-cold, super chocolaty and taste just like cocoa! You'll love this easy, foolproof recipe!The temperature is so hot in California right now, that my new idea of a good time is curling up in my shortest shorts under the nearest AC vent while reading a magazine.

Doesn’t that just sound divine?

Forget poolside. Poolside still means you’re outside, of which I want absolutely nothing to do with. It’s over one-hundred degrees out there – staring at a glistening pool is not my idea of a good time. And frankly, neither does swimming (hello, bikini – no thanks) but that’s a different story.

Not to mention, we don’t have a pool or know anyone with a pool besides my grandma, who lives about 15 minutes away. We could go over there to swim, but that requires bearing the heat and travel time which doesn’t bode well when the temperature gauge is over a hundred.

So basically, if you need anything done from me at any given time during June-September, it’s a requirement that it’s done in the house, that the AC is blasting, and that I’ve had adequate time to bring my body to temperature. It’s the worst when I come home from my 8am walk with Mannie, enter the home dripping with sweat, and am asked to do something. Leave me alone and let me stop cooking.

Anywho. Despite burning up 24/7, I’m still getting the urge to bake which I’m trying to curb with plenty of no-bake treats. One of the things we crave in the summertime is ice cream and tons of it, but I get kinda tired of it every night all the time between sundaes and milkshakes. So I set out to create a summertime treat that was kinda like ice cream, kinda not, but 100% delicious. And it serves as inspiration for my favorite wintertime drink… *drumroll please*… Frozen Hot Chocolate! 

These Frozen Hot Chocolates are the BEST ever! Frosty-cold, super chocolaty and taste just like cocoa! You'll love this easy, foolproof recipe!If you’ve never had Frozen Hot Chocolate, you’re missing out. This frosty, freezy-cool drink is icy and utterly delicious, creamy and chocolaty, and tastes just like rich milk chocolate cocoa but frozen. It’s so scrumptious! And topped with whipped cream and a generous drizzle of glossy chocolate syrup, it’s our new favorite way to cool down and beat the heat.

For this Best-Ever Frozen Hot Chocolate, I’m using Nielsen-Massey Pure Chocolate Extract. This stuff is seriously divine and really elevates the rich, warm chocolate flavor in these drinks. I love using Nielsen-Massey extracts in my baking because it’s a family-owned company that really cares about the quality of its products. Their vanilla bean paste continues to be a favorite of mine, and I cannot function without their Madagascar Vanilla Extract. It’s so velvety and delicious. If you haven’t already, you should check them out!

These Frozen Hot Chocolates are the BEST ever! Frosty-cold, super chocolaty and taste just like cocoa! You'll love this easy, foolproof recipe!And whatever you do, you oughta make one of these drinks for yourself! They’re worth it!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1%)
  • 3 cups ice
  • 3 (.75-1 oz) pkgs hot cocoa packets (depending on the brand, they vary in ounces. Look for this range, which is typical for powdered hot cocoa packets)

  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate syrup
Instructions
  1. In a large blender, blend together the milk, ice, hot cocoa packets, chocolate and vanilla extracts on high speed until blended and smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour into two tall Mason jars or glasses and garnish with fresh whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Likewise, you can also drizzle your glasses with chocolate syrup before pouring the hot chocolate into the glass for extra pizzazz and flavor.
  3. Drink up!

These Frozen Hot Chocolates are the BEST ever! Frosty-cold, super chocolaty and taste just like cocoa! You'll love this easy, foolproof recipe!I mean… talk about heaven in a glass! I love the icy texture of this sweet cocoa drink. The hot chocolate flavor really comes through as it’s enhanced by the Chocolate Extract and rounded out with the Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, both of which add tremendous richness and flavor. These hot chocolates totally taste like the ones at the famed Serendipity in New York City and Miami!

Be sure to connect with Nielsen-Massey on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest for more inspiration and recipes!

Have a sweet day!

Copycat Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade

These Copycat Chick-Fil-A Frozen Lemonades are to-die for! Creamy, dreamy, sweet and tart, they're the perfect refreshing summertime drink!Now this is the ultimate Friday treat.

I’m alllll about finding ways to indulge. This is probably the number one reason why none of my diets work.

I find reasons to indulge for everything. It’s Monday, let me eat the fries. I surpassed X amount of page views, so I’ll have an ice cream sundae. I survived today; bring on the chips.

This is also probably the number one reason why I’ve gained weight… but I digress. We need not talk about weight in the summertime. It’s sacrilegious, like wearing double denim or dressing up dogs in tutus.

But sometimes, it’s just SO DAMN HOT outside and the only thing you can do is cry and hope your tears offer some kind of chill to your burning-up face… like how it’s been here in Sacramento the past few days. A couple days ago, it was 100 degrees. ONE FREAKIN’ HUNDRED. Not cool, Mother Nature. You’re kind of a B.

And I think my family and I were so heat-confused that we didn’t turn on our AC for awhile because of it. We were so unbearably hot and sweaty, but we couldn’t turn on the AC because that’d be admitting defeat that summer is officially here in Northern California. *cries* But eventually, we caved and turned it on because you can only threaten wearing only a bikini for so long, and no one – I mean nobody – wants to see that.

These Copycat Chick-Fil-A Frozen Lemonades are to-die for! Creamy, dreamy, sweet and tart, they're the perfect refreshing summertime drink!But there’s something good about summertime, and that’s frosty treats. My family and I stock-pile the freezer with popsicles, ice cream bars, lots of ice and frozen fruit and fruit juices to make slushies and smoothies on a whim. That’s precisely how I came up with these Copycat Frozen Lemonades after trying it at Chick-Fil-A. They’re creamy, dreamy, sweet, tart and totally refreshing.

Admit it. You totally want one.

Copycat S’mores Frappuccino

These Copycat S'mores Frappuccinos taste just like the coffee chain's but BETTER. Complete with chocolate, marshmallow whipped cream and a creamy, s'mores flavored shake topped with Biscoff cookies.I have been on such a frappuccino kick lately. Like, it’s getting ridiculous (and expensive).

But I am such a marketer’s dream come true and will buy any new flavored frappe available. Birthday cake? Had to try… and recreated it HERE. Java Chip? An old favorite. Caramel Coconut – remember that one? Deliciousness. And s’mores? Done for. I live for s’mores flavored anything.

Which reminds me that a couple days ago, I tried the s’mores frappuccino and then later went to froyo with my sister, whereupon I purchased a s’mores froyo. It was totally a s’mores day and we ate it outside where they had a fire pit and where obnoxious teenagers who just swiped their first pack of cigarettes were playing cornhole and being annoying.

I thought back to those days where I’d be mock-offended at whatever a cute boy said, so I’d playfully hit him and act humorously sensitive so he’d swoop me into a hug and (hopefully) kiss me in front of an audience of poor, innocent, unsuspecting people eating frozen yogurt. I’d talk a little louder, gesticulate a little bigger, and keep my eyes peeled for people watching me and my super cute boyfriend be annoying teenagers. Aren’t we so cute? Everyone wishes their boyfriend was as cute as my boyfriend, I’d think to myself, even though in retrospect all of my boyfriends were kind of ugly. Sorry not sorry.

So as I hoovered froyo into my face while watching these teenagers smoke their first-ever cigarettes while playing corn hole and talking loudly, I fondly realized that you couldn’t pay me enough money to be a gawky, awkward teenager ever again. People say, “ah, to be 16 again” and I say been there, done that, and 0/10 would recommend.

Mostly because I was annoying (sorry, Mom) and because I ate chicken caesar salads and chocolate donuts daily and that’s disgusting. Also, see the note about ugly boyfriends. UGH.

ANYWHO. Back to s’mores stuff.

These Copycat S'mores Frappuccinos taste just like the coffee chain's but BETTER. Complete with chocolate, marshmallow whipped cream and a creamy, s'mores flavored shake topped with Biscoff cookies.This frappuccino is amazing, people. It’s creamy, icy, and packed with s’moresy goodness thanks to all of the components which make it special: marshmallow whipped cream (!!), crushed Biscoff cookies on top, an ample amount of fudge sauce, and that s’mores base which rocks your face off.

10/10 would recommend.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream {No Machine Needed!}

This rich and creamy four-ingredient Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream is packed with flavor and is made without an ice cream machine.You guys – this ice cream is off the chain! So rich and incredibly delicious.

And it has Little Debbie Red Velvet Cakes swirled throughout it, giving that cute freckled look and that creamy, chocolaty red velvet taste.

Dude. It’s cake and ice cream in one. There’s really not much better than this.

I used to work at this cupcake shop and red velvet was the most popular flavor. I don’t know how or why people loved it so much; it just tasted like cupcake. You know how things sometimes just taste like… it? Like that’s it? No other notes, no other flavors, just kind of one-note? That was this red velvet cupcake. It kind of just tasted like glorified red bread, which is weird since I’ve never tried red bread before then.

Then said red bread was topped with a mound of cream cheese frosting which was way too sweet. So in other words, it wasn’t that great, but everyone freaked for it. When we were sold out, you’d think it was the start of World War III. People were nutso for their red bread.

So from that stemmed a general dislike for red velvet. I didn’t understand the overwhelming appeal of this mysterious is-it-chocolate-or-not Southern staple. But then I partnered up with Little Debbie – you know, the QUEEN of snack cakes – and she sent me a box of their Red Velvet Cakes. Chiiiiiiiild, you can color me a red velvet fan through and through if they all taste that good. It was chocolaty without being overpowering, richly sweet without being cloying, and had that marshmallow-y creamy center that was absolutely heaven on earth.

This rich and creamy four-ingredient Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream is packed with flavor and is made without an ice cream machine.And naturally, I knew it had to be made into an ice cream. But of course.

This ice cream is PACKED with rich, tangy and creamy cheesecake flavor – the base is cheesecake, after all – and it’s studded with chunks of Little Debbie Red Velvet Cakes swirled throughout. This would be the BEST served up in a waffle bowl or cone, and I happen to think it’d be mighty tasty with hot fudge drizzled on top. But that’s just me, obvi.

Copycat Birthday Cake Frappuccino

Sweet and creamy, this Copycat Birthday Cake Frappuccino tastes like Starbucks but better! Tastes like liquified cake batter, swirled with rainbow sprinkles and topped with a homemade raspberry whipped cream.So did you guys get the chance to try Starbucks’ Birthday Cake Frappuccino a couple weekends ago? The Frappuccino was turning 20 years old (whoa) and to celebrate, launched a limited-edition cake-flavored frappe. Everyone and their mother began fuhreaking out on Instagram and Twitter, talking about this fabulous invention.

Some people were repulsed by its sweetness, but you’re ordering a birthday freakin’ CAKE flavored milkshake, essentially. What in the world were you expecting? Pulled pork flavor? Steak and potatoes? It’s birthday cake. It’s sweet. Please – if I had a dollar for every “it’s too sweet” comment I heard about this damn drink, I’d be owning Starbucks.

But I digress.

Most people liked it, I think, including myself. It was sweet, but I liked it and I liked that I could kind of taste the nuttiness that birthday cake sometimes has – Starbucks used hazelnut syrup, but in this frappuccino recipe, I use almond extract to bring in that richness we know and love from birthday cake. And personally? I was more enamored with the raspberry whipped cream, which is also present on my frappe.

The only thing it was missing was sprinkles, and thankfully, mine has plenty of that taken care of.

This Frappuccino couldn’t be simpler to whip up – just a quick whir in your blender and you’re good to go, saving a ton of money compared to the coffee-shop version. Plus, this has real, authentic cake mix in it, lending that wonderfully sweet cake batter flavor and creaminess. Honestly? I think you’ll like my version better. I’m betting I’ll even have a Hayleybucks coffee shop here soon. But maybe with a catchier name.

I hope you enjoy!!

  • 6 oz milk (I used non-fat, but any kind works)
  • 3 Tbsp white or Funfetti cake mix (just the dry mix)
  • 1 Tbsp powdered vanilla coffee creamer
  • 1-2 Tbsp vanilla or cake batter flavored syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • Handful of ice cubes
  • FOR RASPBERRY WHIPPED CREAM:
  • ¼ cup Cool Whip
  • 1 tsp raspberry extract
  • Red food coloring
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. In a blender base, add the milk, cake mix, powdered creamer, almond extract, syrup and ice cubes and blend on HIGH for about 2 minutes or until creamy and smooth. Pour into a large glass.
  2. In a small bowl, fold the raspberry extract and a couple drops of red food coloring into the Cool Whip until combined. Spoon on top of the frappuccino and garnish with rainbow sprinkles. This recipe very easily doubles, and if you're making a larger batch, consider making your whipped cream from scratch by whipping 1 cup of heavy whipping cream on high until stiff, then adding in the extract and food coloring.
  3. This recipe would also be great with soy milk, almond milk, or regular cow's milk.

Sweet and creamy, this Copycat Birthday Cake Frappuccino tastes like Starbucks but better! Tastes like liquified cake batter, swirled with rainbow sprinkles and topped with a homemade raspberry whipped cream.Rich, icy, creamy deliciousness, bursting with authentic cake batter flavor. And that whipped cream frosting? Dynamite. The combination of the fruity raspberry with the sweet cake batter flavor is just out of control. I think you’ll agree.

Plus, sprinkles make everything better, automatically making this frappuccino better than the name brand, don’t ya think?

Have a super sweet day!!

Copycat Orange Julius

Thick and supremely creamy, these Copycat Orange Julius drinks taste like the real deal: bursting with juicy orange flavor and a creamy vanilla base, they taste like a liquid creamsicle!When I was a teenager, I loved hanging out at the mall.

I believe that makes me a mall rat? If so, rat I am.

I thought it was so cool when my mom would drop me off at the mall so I could walk around with friends, scoping out cute boys in Anchor Blue (DUDE. I never thought I’d say those words again) or Zumiez and suck down Orange Julius like it was my job.

…that was, when my mom gave me money for an Orange Julius. They were never super cheap and she intended for what cash she did dole out to be used for actual sustenance, not a glorified orange milkshake. But I would find it impossible to resist buying an Orange Julius because walking by their stand, with the aroma of freshly-squeezed orange juice wafting through the air and resisting a purchase was basically impossible. Plus, they always had the cutest guys working at Orange Julius. It was like getting a smoothie for $4 but getting bonus eye candy for free.

(FYI, I was super boy crazy and a total psychopath who watched the cute boys work).

Thick and supremely creamy, these Copycat Orange Julius drinks taste like the real deal: bursting with juicy orange flavor and a creamy vanilla base, they taste like a liquid creamsicle!But there’s something so alluring and delicious about an Orange Julius. It’s thickness, for one, makes it almost milkshake-esque, combined with its unabashed creaminess which no doubt comes from some kind of cream or soft serve. And that bright orange flavor which offers such a wonderful freshness – so delicious. It’s icy, cool, refreshing, creamy, and mysteriously delicious – what is the secret ingredient? But I think I’ve finally cracked the code on this OJ business.

I’ve adapted this recipe from my Copycat Wendy’s Frosties which are eerily similar in texture to these Orange Julius copycats. The base is the same as the Wendy’s Frosty: Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk (for creaminess), but with swaps for an Orange Julius – orange juice for starters, and orange juice concentrate, which ramps up the flavor and adds that icy texture we crave.

Overall? Save your $4. This is alllllllll you need, mall rat. Unless, of course, you’re only going to scope out potential BFs at Anchor Blue. Just don’t buy the puca shell necklace.

This summery Copycat Orange Julius tastes eerily similar to the original and is a cinch to make. It comes together in minutes and offers a creamy texture with a bright orange flavor everyone will love.
Ingredients
  • 1 & ½ cups orange juice
  • 1 (12 oz) can frozen orange juice concentrate, slightly thawed
  • 1 (16 oz) tub Cool Whip Free, frozen
  • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 5-7 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. In a large blender, add the orange juice, the frozen concentrate, the condensed milk, ice cubes, and chopped chunks of the Cool Whip (I just cut it in quarters with a rubber spatula and add the quarters to the blender cavity).
  2. Blend on HIGH for about 2 minutes or until creamy, thick and blended completely. Pour among two glasses (I used Mason jars) and garnish with spare orange segments, if desired. Top with whipped cream if you'd like; I like mine plain.

Thick and supremely creamy, these Copycat Orange Julius drinks taste like the real deal: bursting with juicy orange flavor and a creamy vanilla base, they taste like a liquid creamsicle!The. BEST. The creamiest. The most delicious copycat recipe ever. You guys need to try this bad boy! I think you’ll agree, it’s creamsicle quality, thick creaminess and icy texture make it one of the best drinks you’ll have this spring & summer!

Have a super sweet day!!

Homemade Dole Whips {No Ice Cream Machine Needed!}

Homemade Dole Whips are a light and creamy treat bursting with juicy pineapple and vanilla flavor, served up frozen soft-serve-style. Just like the Disneyland classic, and no ice cream maker required!You guys. These whips. I die.

So last month, I attended the Food Blog Forum in Orlando, FL. It was an awesome and intimate conference that took place at Walt Disney World Resort where we could learn the tricks of the trade, network and mingle with our bloggy friends and awesome brands, and explore Disney World!

And as a Disneyland fan, I was a little skeptical about Disney World. Would it really be that big of a deal? Would it be better than Disneyland? But I quickly realized there is zero comparison. They’re both like, completely different planets but with the same mouse creatures. And they both have Dole Whips.

If you don’t know, a Dole Whip is a pineapple-y vanilla soft-serve cone that Disneyland and World serve up in their Adventureland. You can get ’em standard (that’s a Dole Whip) or get them over pineapple or orange juice (that’s a Dole Float). I had the float, and it was miiiiiighty tasty. But the whip itself? Heaven.

It’s so soft and creamy, bursting with tropical, juicy pineapple and sweet whipped vanilla in every bite. It definitely lives up to the hype – and there’s a huge one – because it’s so freakin’ good. But when I came home to investigate how to make these creamy concoctions at home, I was so bummed that every recipe required an ice cream machine – something my life is severely lacking. But since I’m poor (see: Disney World) yet I wanted to satisfy this burning need for Dole Whips at home in California, I figured I ought to create something pretty darn identical to the original.

And you guys – this is it.Homemade Dole Whips are a light and creamy treat bursting with juicy pineapple and vanilla flavor, served up frozen soft-serve-style. Just like the Disneyland classic, and no ice cream maker required!

Is it as stiff as the original? No, but that’s because it isn’t made from a prepared mix or churned out in a Taylor fro-yo machine. However, it is plenty creamy, freezy, and bursting with pineapple-y vanilla goodness that tastes pretty darn similar to the original Disney creation. Almost like if Dole Whips and the Wendy’s Frosty had a love child, it would be these. A delicious, outrageous love child.

Homemade Dole Whips are a light and creamy treat bursting with juicy pineapple and vanilla flavor, served up frozen soft-serve-style. Just like the Disneyland classic, and no ice cream maker required!Now if you need me, I’ll be knee-deep in Dole Whips (which is exactly where I want to be!)

These guilt-free, homemade Dole Whips are the perfect refreshing treat any time of year! They taste pretty darn identical to the Disney classic and are made without a ticket to Disneyland and without an ice cream machine!
Ingredients
  • 2 cans (20 oz each) Dole Crushed Pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • Juice of one lime
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (8 oz) tub Cool Whip Free, frozen
Instructions
  1. In a blender, pour in the cans of crushed pineapple (pineapple and their juice), the sugar, juices of both the lemon and lime, and the vanilla. Blend for about 2 minutes or until completely smooth.
  2. Cut the frozen Cool Whip in quarters and place it in the blender. Blend on high until combined and smooth. Mixture will be thick but still pourable.
  3. Pour the mixture into two Mason jars with the lids off. Place the Mason jars into the freezer and freeze for about 3 hours, or until the mixture is soft and thick, like soft serve. Serve immediately. I find that in my freezer, 3 hours is the perfect amount of time for thick and creamy soft serve-style Dole Whips, but check yours after 2 and experiment with times from the 2-hour mark.

Homemade Dole Whips are a light and creamy treat bursting with juicy pineapple and vanilla flavor, served up frozen soft-serve-style. Just like the Disneyland classic, and no ice cream maker required!

Homemade Dole Whips are a light and creamy treat bursting with juicy pineapple and vanilla flavor, served up frozen soft-serve-style. Just like the Disneyland classic, and no ice cream maker required!Yep. Paradise in a glass, all without the cost of admission to Disney World. Can’t complain about that!

Want to trash this up? Add coconut rum to the mixture and proceed. HELL YEAH.

Want to lighten this up? Use Stevia instead of the sugar and use Cool Whip Free or Sugar-Free Cool Whip for a lighter treat.
