To make this dairy free pineapple dole whip, you''ll need a high-powered blender. The Vitamix can do the job with no problem.
If you don't have access to a Vitamix, please don't try this recipe with your "regular" blender. You may break it.

30 Second Pineapple Dole Whip
1/2 cup soy milk
1/8 - 1/4 cup granulated sugar or splenda
1 fresh pineapple (some of which you will freeze)
Prepare the fresh Pineapple ahead of time:
You need to cut it into small wedges or chunks, including the core.(The vitamix can break down the core too and you want the nutrients that are found in the core.)
Set aside and refrigerate 1 cup of pineapple to use for topping the dole whip. (You can remove the core from this portion and cut into smaller pieces.) Or, if you bought 2 pineapples, wait to cut up the 2nd one until the 1st pineapple chunks are frozen. Then, you can chunk and freeze the leftovers of the 2nd pineapple so you always have some in the freezer ready to go.
Put the soy milk in first. Add the frozen pineapple (break apart if stuck together) and sugar. With the lid securely on, turn the variable speed up to 10, then flip the switch to high speed.
Use your tamper to push the pineapple into the blades.
The sound of the motor will change and you should have a thick smooth dole whip.
Turn off the Vitamix immediately to prevent melting.
Scoop into dishes with a rubber spatula. Top with fresh pineapple chunks. Sit back with your feet up, relax, and enjoy this little tropical vacation.
But Wait...How do I ...
Don't worry, because you can find really great tips about pineapple from the people who are experts at growing it.
Dole Plantation themselves!
You can even read all about the history of this delicious tropical fruit. Did you know that the pineapple is not native to Hawaii?
Interesting...find out some more by visting Dole Plantation in person like I did...
Or at least check out the education portion of their website.
It was very cool to see how they grow in the fields and to taste a very fresh pineapple. It's not at all like what gets imported to us. You have to experience the "real thing" at least once.
My favorite way to eat it in Hawaii was of course, the dole whip way. (I liked it so much that we went on two different days of our 10 day trip just to get one.)
Now you want to go to Hawaii and get one too, huh?
Well, Unfortunately, Hawaii is a little too far for me to travel, so I'll have to be satisfied with my homemade version. For those that also feel that Hawaii is a little out of reach, you could visit Disneyland to try one. But, I can't remember if they add pineapple on top.
