This Boozy Banana Dole Whip is an adult version of the famous Disney Dole Whip. With the addition of bananas, brandy soaked grilled pineapples, coconut and booze, this Dole Whip is a tropical paradise for your taste buds!
1MediumPineapple– peeled, cored and cut into ¾’’ rings
1 ½Bananas– sliced into chunks
½Lime– juiced (about 1 TBS)
Shredded Coconut– toasted
For the Pineapple: Lay pineapple rings in a glass baking dish and pour brandy over them. Toss to coat. Allow pineapple to soak in brandy for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through.
Lightly oil grates (or pan) with cooking spray and heat grill to medium high. Remove and drain pineapple and transfer to grill in a single layer (do this in batches if using a grill pan), reserving brandy. Cook 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and grill marks appear. Flip over and continue to cook an additional 2 minutes, brushing with reserved brandy. Transfer to a clean work surface and allow to cool.
Freeze: Once cool, cut pineapples into chunks. Transfer 4 cups of the pineapple* to a large Ziploc bag and add the slices of bananas. Seal and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours, or until frozen*.
Blend: Place frozen pineapples, bananas and remaining ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
Serve: Transfer Boozy Banana Dole Whip directly into serving cups/bowls. Or, to a piping bag (or Ziploc with the corner snipped off) and squeeze, in a swirling motion, into serving cup or bowl. Top with optional garnishes and enjoy.
