The first year we lived here in Cali we had saved up for months upon months and bought a family Disney pass. We went almost every week becuase we wanted to get our $$$ worth!!! But…..I had JUST had baby #5 and standing in lines for hours on end wasn’t exactly the hap-hap-happiest place on earth with brand new tiny infant. We often chose to break up the waiting with searching for yummy foods (basically to buy ourselves time and bribe our kids to stay happy…..did I just write that???) and scoping out whatever short cuts we could find was a fun game for Matt and I (I mean, we liked the treats too!)
For those of you who are local, this will be old news to you, but for those of you who might be planning a trip out to see Mickey you HAVE to make sure to plan in a little stop to get the Dole Pineapple Whip. It’s on the Disney side, just next to the Tiki Hut and a little trick to get your yummy frozen treat faster is to not wait in the line on the outside of the turnstile. Go inside the turnstiles (where the waiting area for the tiki room is) and stand in line there–it’s waaaay shorter!
Anyway, we don’t have our passes anymore (because good lord paying for year round passes for 7 people is the equivalent of a college tuition) and we have definitley missed these little frozen, sweet, fruity, whipped treats!
Sooooooo, we’ve decided to take the same idea making them similar to how Disney makes them, but try to do it a bit more healthy and with far less calories! These are perfect for a warm spring day, a fruity morning shake, or for a post workout recovery drink!
Oh and this Lean Body For Her Vanilla protein is safe for kids too (if you decide you want to order te same one I use be sure to use my discout code: Meg10 for 10% off), so you can make a big batch of this and everyone can share in it. Hope you enjoy them!!!
