Project Pinterest: Pineapple Whips

When I saw this pin on Pinterest I knew I had to make it. It looked so good and refreshing.

Tuesday was the day! It was a warm day and all the ingredients were on hand.

Pineapple Whips
*the original recipe can be found here. The recipe below is with my few adaptions.

40 ounces crushed pineapple with juice
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped

Drain pineapple; reserve 5-6 tablespoons juice. Set aside. Place pineapple, lemon juice, sugar and 3 tablespoons pineapple juice in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into two 1-quart freezer zipped bags and store bags flat in freezer. Freeze 1-1/2 hours. Stir pineapple slush gently into whipped cream in large bowl. Return to freezer until completely frozen, about 1 hour (I had mine in for 3 hours and it was still a good consistency). Just before serving, whip some more heavy cream with the rest of the reserved pineapple juice. Top each serving of the whip with a dollop of whipped cream.  

They were delicious!

Kati, I think you may have to make these quite often as the hot summer months approach. They look like "just the thing" to tempt one away from anything one is doing! Pinterest is such a wonderful recipe finder, isn't it?
