Well folks, we have been home for a FULL week, and I still can’t say that I’m acclimated back to regular life. Each day I wake up wishing that I could go for a run with an ocean view and then sit by a pool while sipping a magical drink. And yet each day I wake up and am picking up Magna-Tiles and pouring cereal for children who also wish they were skipping by a pool.


(P.S. I can see that I sound super spoiled and whiny right now . . . can we indulge me just for today?)

Earlier this month we took a four night cruise in the Caribbean with Disney and it was seriously magical. I didn’t grow up with all things Disney, but even my cynical black heart was totally mesmerized by all the magic they make. The highlight of the trip for me was standing on the cruise deck the second night dancing with my sweet 10 year old boy and then watching fireworks.

Maybe the second most magical moment was discovering that aboard the cruise ship you can get a famous Dole Whip . . . . WITH BOOZE.

  1. Grab some frozen pineapple (they sell it by the bag in the frozen fruit section) and a frozen banana.
  2. Blend that with some coconut milk.
  3. Blend in some rum at the end.
  4. Enjoy for all the days of your life.

On the most magical vacation ever, they offered up all these different types of rum that you could get your Dole Whip with. I went with a vanilla rum and it was total perfection. They didn’t really blend it together and it ended up being more like a dole whip float, which was totally fine by me.

In this version, I couldn’t find vanilla rum, so I went with what I had and blended it all together. It was just like being on vacation again.

For like a minute.

I will take what I can get.


  • If you like you don’t like your drinks too sweet, use a lite non sweetened coconut milk.
  • As I mentioned, you could use different flavors of rum in this to mix it up a little.
  • Next time I make this, I might throw in some frozen strawberries too!

Okay guys, wish me luck as I try to reintegrate into normal society. A few more of these will probably help.

    I need a coconut milk workaround as I am allergic to coconut….suggestions?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Oooof, I think I would go with vanilla ice cream. It won’t be the same but it will be really good!

  2. Charlene Ashton says

    Any suggestions for substituting banana? Allergies are crazy, aren’t they?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Allergies are absolutely crazy! Okay, I would just go with some other frozen fruit you love. Mango and strawberries come to mind. It won’t be the same but it will still be delicious.

  3. Celeste Rausch says

    The only sweetened coconut milk in a can I could find was condensed. Is it the same thing?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I don’t think so :/ I think that is a vegan replacement for sweetened condensed milk. I think it’s possible that it could work, but I can’t say for sure without trying it.

  4. Linda Hall says

    Made batches of this for a Luau party and put in punch bowl. Big big hit

    • Lisa Longley says

      Glad to hear that you liked it, Linda!

  5. Arland Mary Coleman says

    Is it frozen pineapple juice concentrate or the actual pieces of fruit?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Frozen pieces of pineapple.

  6. Shells says

    Imitation banana or Imitation coconut works great for people with allergies. Just make sure to add ice cream or something to make up for the lose of volume or whatever.

  7. Velinda says

    *It is not worth making, a pina colada is much better! It ws missing something and was just ok. I would not make again

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so sorry this was a miss for you. I will have to disagree that it’s not worth making – but that’s okay! Tastes vary greatly from person to person.

  8. Marie Mancini says

    Pineapple Rum drink sounds delicious!
    Cannot wait to make a batch.

      I’m so glad you liked it!
