Dole Whip Jello Shots Ingredients

Dole Whip Jello Shots raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 (3-ounce) boxes of pineapple jello mix 
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1½ cups pineapple juice
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup vanilla vodka

PRO TIP:

Different stores carry different-sized plastic shot glasses, ranging from 1.5 ounces to 2.5 ounces. Use what you can find, and just know that this recipe will make fewer or more jello shots depending on the size of your disposable shot glasses.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

VODKA: The vanilla vodka really gives the jello shots that Dole Whip combo of flavors. You can use regular vodka or rum for this easy recipe if you do not have vanilla vodka.

JELLO: You can substitute plain gelatin packets (2 packets per 2 cups of liquid) for one or both of the pineapple jello packages if needed. In this case, you would only get the pineapple flavor from the pineapple juice. This is an option if you cannot find pineapple jello. I ordered my pineapple jello on Amazon.

PINEAPPLE: I like to get the little mini (6-ounce) cans of pineapple juice to keep on hand in my pantry. These are great for this recipe since 6 ounces is equivalent to ¾ cup pineapple juice, and they come in a 4 or 6 pack. This way, I do not need to open a large bottle of pineapple juice if I am only using it to make a small recipe.

How to Make This Dole Whip Jello Shots Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This recipe makes 24 shots. If you are making these for a larger party and need more, you can easily double the recipe.

STEP ONE: In a 4-cup measuring cup, whisk together the pineapple jello mix and 1 cup of boiling water until the jello is fully dissolved.

STEP TWO: Once the jello is fully dissolved, stir in the pineapple juice, sweetened condensed milk, and vodka. Whisk together until combined. 

PRO TIP:

Use up to 1½ cups of vodka for a stronger jello shot. You need four cups total of liquid to combine with the jello mixture.

STEP THREE: Carefully pour the mixture between small plastic cups. Fill just under the top, so they don’t spill.

STEP FOUR: Transfer jello shots to the refrigerator and chill for 4 hours until set.

PRO TIP:

Setting the jello shot cups on a baking sheet will help make it easier to transport them to the fridge for chilling.

STEP FIVE: Just before serving, top each jello shot with a pineapple toothpick

How To Serve

These boozy Dole Whip jello shots will be a sure party favorite on a hot summer day. No party is complete without appetizers, though, and our fruit salsa with cinnamon chips and cucumber bites are two delicious choices.

For more tropical drinks, our pina colada and tipsy mermaid are two more fun and tasty alcoholic beverages.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Jello shots will keep in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Cover if you use containers that do not come with individual lids; otherwise, pop the lids on for storage. 

IN THE FREEZER: Because of the gelatin and alcohol, this jello shot recipe doesn’t tend to freeze very well.

Disney’s infamous Dole Whip is a refreshing, non-alcoholic treat on a hot day. But what happens when you add some vodka to the mix? Dole Whip in jello shot form, that’s what! These shots are easy to make and perfect for any party. So grab your ingredients and get ready to whip up some deliciousness!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How to store vodka jello shots?

If you have any leftover jello shots, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week with their lids tightly on. You can make them 1 to 2 days ahead of your party before serving, but make sure you are storing the containers with the lids on.

Can you freeze jello shots?

I don’t find that jello shots freeze well because of the gelatin and alcohol. While you can pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to help speed along the setting process, you shouldn’t store them in the freezer after they’re done.

Can I use a different flavor of jello if I can’t find pineapple jello?

If you can’t find pineapple jello, you can use plain gelatin in a pinch.
