Dole Pineapple Whips

The iconic Disney Pineapple Dole Whip can easily be made at home with only a few simple ingredients! This sweet, frosty fruit treat is the perfect dessert to cool off on a hot summer day.

If you can’t go to Disneyland and get a Dole Whip, you can easily make it at home! This luscious, creamy treat is a summer favorite but can be enjoyed all year when your sweet tooth comes calling because the recipe uses frozen pineapple.

What is Dole Whip?

Dole Whip is pineapple-flavored soft-serve ice cream. It was originally created by the fruit company, Dole, but became available at Disneyland’s Tiki Bar in 1986. It’s now served at a few different locations in the park and also across the country, but pretty synonymous with Disneyland. It’s practically achieved a cult following as visitors to Disney will wait in a very long line just to get one on a hot day.

Dole Whip Ingredients

There are only a few ingredients needed to make this! Pineapple juice, frozen pineapple chunks, vanilla ice cream, lemon juice, salt, and sugar (which is optional.)

The real Disneyland Dole Whip is vegan now, made with non-dairy creamer, sugar, and natural flavoring and coloring. But when Disney recently released their recipe to the world, due to the parks being closed, it was merely 3 ingredients – pineapple juice, frozen pineapple chunks, vanilla ice cream.

This at-home version uses real ingredients and is as close to the authentic flavor as you’ll get!

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender (in the order listed); blend until smooth and ultra-creamy, pushing down the pineapple chunks if necessary, for about 3 minutes.
  • At this point, you can pour it into dessert cups. But I like to freeze the mixture for 30-40 minutes, then transfer it to a piping bag with a 1M “star” tip (to get that iconic Dole Whip swirl.)
  • Swirl into glasses.
  • (To help the soft-serve hold its shape even longer, freeze the swirled whip for another 20 minutes.)
