SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
ICE CREAM: The official recipe is a vegan and dairy-free dessert. You can use dairy-free ice cream in your own Dole Whip to mimic the original and keep this sweet treat an exact copycat of the real thing, or you can substitute your favorite type of non-dairy-free ice cream for a creamier version of this treat. You could also try mixing up the ice cream flavor for a delicious twist!
RUM: For a fun, adults-only version of this tasty treat, add 1½ ounces of rum to your blender as you make your Dole Whip.
HOW TO MAKE DOLE WHIP
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.
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.
