We've been making as many kid-friendly, fun and easy to make recipes from our cookbook, Cooking With Kids. Making Pineapple Whip has been by far the easiest and one of the tastiest recipes. It only has 2 ingredients and can be made in under 5 minutes. This pineapple whip is super refreshing, flavorful and is a really fun summer snack. You can use this recipe to help teach your kids how to use a can opener and a blender.
Making Pineapple Whip
Pineapple Whip is similar to the oh-so-tasty Disneyland favorite, Dole Whip. It is virtually the same thing but with less ingredients. This easy pineapple whip includes coconut milk and pineapples, oh and a little water. That is it! I used fresh pineapple, cut in chunks, then frozen. After the pineapple chunks are frozen, you can make your pineapple whip. You could also use store bought frozen pineapple.
I love making new recipes with the kids because they get to learn new tools in the kitchen. With this recipe, James learned how to use a can opener. I explained how it works and where the blade was so he wouldn't cut himself. He loved turning the knob and really focused on this task. After the coconut milk is open, be sure to give it a good stir. Next up is blending the ingredients. This part got a little tricky as some of the pineapples were stuck together and jammed up our blender. We added a little extra water to make things move more smoothly. Add the pineapples and the coconut milk to the blender with a little bit of water when needed. Blend until smooth.
Pineapple Whip is best served right away or within 30 minutes. We ending up making a few jars and taking it in a cooler bag with ice packs to our park playdate. I brought little mini "shot" cups and spoons and handed out mini pineapple whip cups to all the kids in our playgroup. They all lined up and were so excited. It was adorable but I didn't get a chance to snap a photo. They all seemed to really love it as a summer park snack!
