Disney Princess-Inspired Recipes From Dole!
Disclosure: I am an official ambassador for Dole. Dole provided me with product samples for this post, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
Dole and Disney are collaborating again to help inspire a love of nutritious foods and cooking at home, this time for an extra special occasion: Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration initiative. For the initiative, Dole has created a variety of nutritious and yummy recipes inspired by your favorite Disney Princess, including Moana, Pocahontas, Mulan, Ariel, Belle and more!
Having grown up watching Disney films, and passing along that love to my daughter, Disney Princesses have inspired the women and girls in my family for four generations with their bravery and kindness. For that reason, I am especially excited for the themed recipes from Dole having Disney Princesses as their inspiration. Amelia and I already created Le Gris Stuff a la Lumiere, inspired by Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and can’t wait to try more to have a true family movie night. One where we can make easy recipes alongside each other, and enjoy a nutritious meal along with our Disney family movie nights! Below, you can find the recipe for Le Gris Stuff a la Lumiere, along with a couple of other Disney Princess-inspired recipes from Dole we are excited to try!
Le Gris Stuff a La Lumiere
- 1 ripe DOLE® Banana, peeled and mashed
- 1 full sheet chocolate graham cracker, finely crushed
- 1 cup light coconut whipped topping
- 2 DOLE® Strawberries, thinly sliced lengthwise
- ¼ cup DOLE® Blueberries
- Whisk banana and graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl; fold in whipped topping. Makes about 1 1/3 cups.
- Divide graham cracker mixture into 4 bowls; top with strawberries and blueberries.
This recipe made for such a delicious after school snack, or after dinner movie night treat! And believe us, it’s delicious!
French Quarter Quiche
The French Quarter Quiche is a recipe from Dole inspired by Disney’s Princess and the Frog. Since Tiana is my favorite Disney Princess, we frequently have Disney’s Princess and the Frog movie nights. This recipe was a must for us!

- 1 large DOLE® Sweet Potato, peeled and grated (about 1¼ pounds)
- 2 tablespoons natural buttery spread with olive oil, melted

- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ medium red bell pepper, chopped
- ¼ cup chopped DOLE® Red Onion
- 1 cup loosely packed chopped DOLE® Baby Spinach
- 10 large egg whites

Princess Pearls Punch
For a movie night beverage, we made the refreshing Princess Pearls Punch! This will definitely be a repeat recipe for our Disney movie nights!
