Pineapple Whip Frozen Pops #foodnflix

Our June Food n' Flix is any movie about Hawaii!  What a fun theme.  We are being hosted by the most delightful Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla.  Click on the link to see her invitation post.

I watched the film Just Go With It with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.  While it got horrible reviews, I actually LOVED it! It was released in 2011 and grossed 214 million, which makes it a box office success, but it didn't get any good reviews.  The movie is based on the 1969 film Cactus Flower.

Synopsis from Wikipedia:

In 1988, Daniel "Danny" Maccabee (Adam Sandler), a 22-year-old man, leaves his wedding right before the ceremony is about to begin after learning that his fiancée is cheating on him, and was only marrying him because he was going to be a doctor. He goes to drink alone at a bar, where a young, beautiful woman walks in. She sees that Danny has a wedding ring on his hand, and asks him about his wife, to which he explains how she recently left him for someone else, and the woman from the bar ends up sleeping with him.
Twenty-three years later, Danny (now 45 years old) is now a successful plastic surgeon in Los Angeles who feigns unhappy marriages to get women and to avoid romantic commitment that may lead to heartbreak. The only woman aware of his schemes is his office manager and best friend Katherine Murphy (Jennifer Aniston), a divorced mother of two. At a party, Danny meets Palmer (Brooklyn Decker), a young sixth-grade math teacher, without his wedding ring on, and they have a connection together. The next morning, she finds the ring and assumes he is married. She refuses to date him because her parents divorced due to adultery.
The rest of the movie centers around trying to keep the story from blowing up in Danny's face.  It also helps Danny figure out who he truly loves.
The film was shot in Los Angeles and the Hawaiian islands of Maui and Kauai between March 2, 2010, and May 25, 2010. The film is deliberately vague about which Hawaiian island its latter portion depicts; thus, the characters hike across a rope bridge on Maui and arrive in the next scene at a spectacular waterfall on Kauai, rather than the ordinary irrigation dam and pond on Maui where the actual trail terminates.
The characters stay at a Hawaiian hotel called the Waldorf Astoria. In actuality, the film was shot at the Grand Wailea in Maui, which is owned by Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts.
One of the film's in-jokes is the scene wherein Decker's character meets her obvious soulmate—professional tennis player Andy Roddick—as Decker and Roddick are actually married.
There are a number of food scenes but what I kept thinking back on was a pineapple whip (not like Disney World's) that I had when I was in Hawaii years ago.  It was a creamy pineapple frozen concoction that I tried to make. This is my latest version.  I made it into freezer pops for a quick grab and go treat!
Come and see us next month!
