Today it is my privilege to introduce you to my firstborn as he takes over the
blog for Five Heart Home's first-ever Kids in the Kitchen Guest Post! ♥

Kids in the Kitchen Guest Post Intro

I attended a camp at the beginning of the summer where I took a cooking class. I made all sorts of desserts, meals, and appetizers. I was already interested in cooking before that but it got me into cooking even more. So when my mom asked me if I’d like to do a guest post on Five Heart Home, I said yes! I'm excited to bring you one of my favorites...a Pineapple Whip!

This Pineapple Whip recipe is a cool, refreshing, easy, fun summer dessert!

It would be great for an after-school snack, or maybe even breakfast, because there are only two healthy ingredients: frozen pineapple and vanilla yogurt.

I got this idea from my mom’s 2-Ingredient Watermelon Sherbet, except this pineapple version tastes like the frozen soft-serve dessert you can get at Disney World!

How to Make It

This is a perfect recipe for kids to make because all you have to do is get some frozen pineapple and yogurt and throw them into the food processor or blender!


You can use a bag of frozen pineapple chunks or have an adult help you cut up a fresh pineapple and freeze the pieces.

If you don’t like added sugar, you can use plain yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt (but most kids like vanilla yogurt).

And then all you do is turn on the food processor or blender for a few minutes until the ingredients are smooth and creamy, like soft-serve ice cream!

Serving Your Pineapple Whip

When we took pictures of this recipe it was hard, because it’s like an oven in Texas with this 103-degree heat. But a Pineapple Whip melts really fast no matter where you live!

After the recipe is made, you should try to eat it as soon as possible. If it does melt a little too fast, you can stick in the freezer and let it harden for awhile.

I hope you all get to try a Pineapple Whip soon because it’s a good-for-you snack or dessert that tastes great!

It’s a nice, refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

Thank you all for reading and I hope to see you again soon with another guest post!

  • 3 cups pineapple chunks, cut ¾-inch in size and frozen solid
  • ½ cup vanilla yogurt


  • Add half of the frozen pineapple chunks plus half of the yogurt to a large food processor (or a high-powered blender). Process for several minutes until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Scoop the mixture into a separate container and repeat the steps with the remaining ingredients.
  • Serve immediately for a frozen yogurt/soft-serve consistency. You may scoop directly into bowls or cones or transfer to a gallon-sized plastic bag, cut a hole in the corner, and swirl out like a soft-serve dispenser. If the "ice cream" is melting too quickly, you may pop it in the freezer for a few minutes before serving.


  • Using a bag of frozen pineapple chunks is the quickest way to make this recipe. A 16-ounce bag yields about 3 cups of fruit.
  • To freeze fresh pineapple cubes, place them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight. Make sure there's not excess pineapple juice on the pan or the cubes will freeze into a solid mass. I also prefer freezing the cubes on top of a piece of foil or parchment paper which makes it easier to release them from the pan later.
  • When making this recipe, be sure to work quickly or the pineapple will start to thaw and the dessert may become watery.
