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 a 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 a 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!

Can I make this dairy free?

Yes! You can swap out the ice cream with 1/3 cup coconut milk to make this a dairy free, vegan treat.

Recipe Tips!

  • You will need a pretty powerful blender for best results, since frozen pineapple can be hard to pulse. I love my Vitamix! Ninja and Blendtec will also get the job done. If you have a regular blender, let the pineapple thaw out slightly.
  • Convert the Dole Whip into a Dole Whip Float! Simply fill a glass halfway with pineapple juice, followed by some Dole Whip, and top it off with a maraschino cherry.
  • To get that iconic Dole Whip swirl, you’ll need to freeze the mixture for about 30-40 minutes, then transfer to a piping bag with a 1M “star” tip.
  • If you feel like your skin is getting a bit of freezer burn while piping, wrap a towel around the piping bag.
  • Not a pineapple lover? You can make it with pretty much any frozen fruit and its accompanying fruit juice, like strawberry, lemon, orange, raspberry, or mango.
