Dole Pineapple Whips


2 20 ounce cans Dole crushed pineapple with juice 2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/3 cup sugar

Place pineapple, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar and reserved pineapple juice in blender or food processor container; cover and blend until smooth. Pour into two 1-quart freezer zipped bags and store bags flat in freezer. Freeze 1-1/2 hours or until slushy. Stir pinea…
