It doesn’t get more magical than the bright, creamy taste of an iconic Dole Whip, and this is the official pineapple recipe, as released by Disney Parks itself. Even if you aren’t visiting the Magic Kingdom anytime soon, you can bring some of the wonder of Disneyland into your own home with this perfect frozen treat.
DOLE WHIP INGREDIENTS
You will need:
- 1 big scoop of vanilla ice cream
- 4 ounces of pineapple juice
- 2 cups of frozen pineapple
PRO TIP: To make enough to share, make sure you double or triple the ingredients listed above.
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Ice Cream: The original recipe is vegan and dairy-free. You can use dairy-free ice cream in your own Dole Whip to mimic the original and keep this recipe an exact copycat, or you can substitute your favorite type of non-dairy-free ice cream for a creamier version of this treat. Or try mixing up the ice cream flavor for a delicious twist!
Rum: For a fun, adults-only version of this drink add 1.5 ounces of rum to your blender as you make your Dole Whip.
HOW TO MAKE THIS DOLE WHIP RECIPE
STEP ONE: Add all of the ingredients to your blender.
STEP TWO: Blend until smooth. The Dole Whip should have a thick and creamy consistency.
STEP THREE: Using an icing piping bag or Ziploc bag with a corner trimmed off, pipe your Dole Whip in a swirl into a cup.
PRO TIP: If using a piping bag to swirl your Dole Whip, use a large nozzle as the mixture will be thick. You can also add your mixture to a large Ziploc bag, trim the corner and use the bag to pipe and swirl it.
IN THE FREEZER: Dole Whip is a frozen dessert similar to frozen yogurt, which makes it best to store in your freezer. Keep it in an airtight container or plastic bag. Keep in mind that this recipe makes a single serving, so there’s not likely to be much leftover!
It’s recommended to make your homemade Dole Whip just before you’re planning to eat it (instead of ahead of time) to create the same beloved texture found at Disney World.
Disney’s beloved Dole Whip is a summer treat that’s creamy, refreshing, and made with only ice cream, pineapple juice, and frozen pineapple. It’s a simple and fun way to bring some of the magic of Disney into your own home.
You can use either fresh, canned pineapple or pineapple from the freezer section. It just has to be drained and frozen before adding to the blender.
While Dole Whip is best enjoyed right when it is made, you can store it in the freezer until you are ready for another treat.
The original recipe is vegan and you could replace the vanilla ice cream with a dairy free ice cream to make this treat vegan.
