Fun Disney’s The Lion King Recipes with Dole

Who is excited for Disney’s The Lion King to come to theaters on July 19th? Over here, we definitely are! And to celebrate we made a yummy The Lion King family lunch. DOLE just recently launched some great new themed recipes inspired by Disney’s THE LION KING as part of its “Powering the Hero Within” initiative. It leverages the heroic saga of Simba and Disney’s The Lion King to help parents encourage no-worry nutrition in their families, including adopting a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.If you have ever tried any of Dole’s themed recipes, then you know how yummy a fresh they taste! Plus, they are easy to create and the kids love them. Check out the Lion Cub Lunch I made the kids using one of the recipes.

The Lion Cub Lunch is a turkey and spinach burger on a grilled pineapple with zucchini noodles. It’s made with Dole pineapple, Dole spinach, Dole walnuts and Dole bell peppers. I just can’t take how cute they turned out. A little Simba sitting in the grass. And I loved how easy they were to make and that the kids ate them all up.

Here are some more of the Dole original, worry-free recipes inspired by Disney’s The Lion King characters. There are lots of great ones, but these ones especially caught my eye.

Banana Peel the Loaf Tonight

Nala Naan

Dole Beet & Berry Smoothie

Circle of Life Salad

Pride Rock Peanut Tofu with Tomatoes and Broccoli

Pride Lands Pancakes and Fruity Sauce

Don’t these recipes look great?!! I can’t wait to make them all. For more original recipes and other information about “Powering the Hero Within,” go to
