12 PPDC Food Crafting Courtesy of a Dole Whip FloatHi Everyone! Dole pineapple is something I really look forward to~whether I am baking my Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes or grilling a kebob or enjoying my beloved Dole Whip Float…Yes, Aloha Isle is a must do every time I am in the Magic Kingdom.

Speaking of which, I have two foodie crafts for you today just because I’ve waited on queues for Dole Whip Floats.

So, with Dole’s help, let’s get started, together!

First, ‘Grow With Dole’:

The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is nearly here. And that made me think of the new food kiosks at this year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. One of my favorites was Dole’s Pineapple Promenade. I didn’t think a Dole Whip could get any better, but their addition of spiced rum made it that much more amazing. Pineapple Promenade also gave out these free packets of Basil Seeds. The idea was to plant the seeds using the plastic bowl from any Dole fruit cup!

To make your own, you’ll need:

  • A plastic bowl from a Dole fruit cup (or any plastic bowl from your favorite snack)
  • Potting soils
  • Basil seeds (or seeds of any herb that will do well indoors)

Instructions (as printed on the Dole Basil Seed Packet):

  1. Eat your healthy fruit cup snack from Dole
  2. Wash out bowl and poke a few small drainage holes in bottom of bowl and place on a saucer
  3. Add soil and plant approximately 3-5 seeds 1/8 inch deep
  4. Water
  5. Place in sunny window sill
  6. Continue to water as needed

Wait as your basil (or herbs) begin to grow. Then snip off to brighten up your foods with fresh flavor.

Now that you grew herbs to use, enjoy some Enchanted Tiki Room themed recipes from Dole:

I loved sitting among the gods and goddesses with my favorite treat, waiting for the Enchanted Tiki Room to start. Talk about a must do! And as part of the 50th Anniversary of the attraction, the Tiki Juice Bar passed out these postcards with this link on the back: http://dole.com/tiki. Isn’t that fun?! They even have a Pineapple Upside-Down Minis recipe.

Chances are you’ll find this “Pineapple Princess” in the baking aisle, Aloha Isle, Pineapple Promenade and the Tiki Juice Bar.

 

And who knew we could craft (foods) courtesy of a little Dole Whip Float?

 

This post was not sponsored by Dole in any way. I just really love pineapple.
