Hello again, Lil’ Luna readers! I’m so excited that Kristyn asked me to be part of her Disney-themed week on the blog. I have a super awesome recipe to share with you today… these Disneyland-copycat Dole Whips are so unique and deliciously refreshing! I feel like whenever a friend comes back from Disneyland, all I hear about is how awesome the food is (yes, my friends love food as much as I do!), and these Dole Whips top the “amazingly delicious” list. I’ll be honest and confess that I’ve never had one at Disneyland… I’ve actually only been to Disneyland twice in my life, and not since I was 15. I’m hoping to remedy that this summer, though, and you better believe that the Tiki Juice Bar is going to be one of my first stops in the park! This is one of those recipes that I never thought I’d be able to make at home! It’s a delicious and flavorful homemade pineapple and citrus soft serve, served as a float with pineapple juice. It’s a perfect dessert for a hot summer day, and would be such a fun idea for a tropical-themed party too! My kids aren’t always crazy about fresh pineapple, but they absolutely loved these Dole Whips and were begging for more. While it’s delicious as a float with the pineapple juice, the soft serve is pretty great just on its own. And since it’s so easy to make, I’m looking forward to enjoying it all summer long!
I made my soft serve using my KitchenAid ice cream attachment, but if you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can still make it in a freezer bag. For some good instructions on how to do that, you can click here. Happy Dole Whip making!
Copycat Disneyland Dole Whips Recipe
- 40 oz crushed pineapple
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 8 ozz non-dairy whipped topping (Cool Whip)
- pineapple juice chilled, for serving
Combine the crushed pineapple (with its juice), lime juice, lemon juice, and sugar in a blender, and process until very smooth. Add the whipped topping and process again until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into a prepared ice cream maker, and process 15-20 minutes, or until it is the consistency of soft-serve. Place in the freezer until ready to serve.
- To serve, fill a cup halfway full with pineapple juice. Add the frozen mixture to fill the cup. I piped my ice cream in using an open star tip to make it a little more fun and festive, but scooping would work great too. Enjoy!
