A Disney Favorite!!

There are a few treats that we MUST get every time we visit a Disney park, and these Dole Whips are one of them (and the churro funnel cake and the caramel apples)!

If you frequent the parks, you’re probably familiar with the famous pineapple soft serve. It’s the best treat to snack on while standing in line on a hot day!

You can find it at a few of the snack stands throughout the park, or at the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland where you can get it on its own, swirled with vanilla ice cream, or as a float with pineapple juice. It’s delicious in all forms!

Luckily, Disney released their Dole Whip recipe so you can enjoy this refreshing treat from home. And best of all, it only requires 3 ingredients and a blender! In less than 10 minutes, you can be enjoying the flavors of the Happiest Place on Earth from the comfort of your own kitchen.

Dole Whip Ingredients

As I mentioned, pineapple dole whip only requires three ingredients! I added a bit of sugar as an optional fourth ingredient to sweeten it up a little bit, but either way it’s super simple. 😉 Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple
  • 2 tbsp sugar (optional)

Make sure you use a high quality vanilla ice cream for best results! I’m a fan of the Blue Bell brand.

How to Make Dole Whip

All you have to do is blend the ingredients in a blender and then if you want to serve it in a swirl like they do at Disney, you can use a ziploc bag to pipe it into whatever you’re serving it in.

BLEND. Add ice cream, juice, pineapple, and sugar to blender. Blend until smooth.

PIPE. Add drink to a gallon Ziploc bag and cut off corner. Pipe into dish or cup with a swirl on top.

NOTE: We didn’t think this recipe was as sweet as the one at Disney. If you want it just like theirs, we recommend adding some sugar or a sweetener before blending. 😉

Recipe Tips

  • If you feel that your mixture is too soft, simply stick into the freezer to help it solidify into a delicious soft serve texture. Place it into the bag and pipe it out.
  • Make it Dairy free by using a dairy free vanilla ice cream alternative.
  • If you want a dole whip float simply add pineapple juice to your cup after you’ve swirled in the ice cream.
  • Disneys recipe lists one big scoop of vanilla ice cream. We found that ½ c ice cream worked for us. 

Storage: Most soft serve treats are best eaten right away and this Dole Whip is no different. Aside from a little optional chill time in the freezer, leaving it in the for too long will freeze it completely. Once it has completely frozen it may be tricky to replicate the original soft serve texture.

The only time I would recommend an extended freeze is if you have leftovers. Place leftovers in an airtight container, use it within 1 week and allow to thaw a bit before eating.

  1. I lived on Oahu about 20 minutes from the Dole Plantation, and ate dole whip all the time. So I made this yesterday, and it was delicious! Probably much healthier than the real stuff, too. Once you put the “ice cream” in the glass with the pineapple juice, you need to stir it up to get the “whip” consistency. After that… it tastes as close to the real stuff as you’re gonna get! Thanks! Yuummmm I’m gonna go have some for breakfast now 😉

    A perfect treat on a hot afternoon! We did like it better with the added sugar, but it’s still really tasty without it. 🙂

    My daughter just won the game “never have I ever” by saying shes never been to disney. But with recipes like these we get to make the DELICIOUS food at home. This Dole whip is so good.

    I just wondered what type of frozen pineapple you used. I bought what looks like your package but the pineapple pieces are diced. Two cups bogged down my blender. I do have a cheap blender. I ended up adding more juice and ice cream so the blender would move. Anyway, it tasted pretty good. Thanks for the recipe. Note to self…get a better blender. I don’t know why this comment is in all caps. Not my phone.
