I love this Dole Whip recipe because it takes me back to the magic of Disney, and it is a delicious, fruity, sweet treat. It is so easy to make that any time a craving kicks in, I can easily make my dreams come true.

I love how easy this recipe is to share, and everyone I’ve ever made it for agrees that it is simply the best! The combo of pineapple and ice cream is seriously amazing. 

This sweet treat is a fan favorite, with the lines to grab a cup of the pineapple deliciousness stretching around the building at Disney. With this dole whip recipe, you can avoid the queues, save yourself some airfare, and just turn on your favorite Disney tunes to recapture that magical feeling.

The Greatest Dole Whip Recipe: 

This simple Dole Whip Recipe only has three ingredients! I love simple recipes that are sweet and delicious. All you need is some ice cream, pineapple juice, and some frozen pineapple chunks! Seriously, that’s it!

After you gather these three simple ingredients that complete your pineapple dole whip recipe, just put them in your blender and blend until it has a nice and thick consistency. 

This recipe is the one that Disney shared during the pandemic when they had to shut down.  They gave out several of their recipes to the public so that we could enjoy the delicious flavors of Magic Kingdom, even if we couldn’t be there in person.

What is Dole Whip? 

In 1984, the Dole Food Company created this incredible dairy-free soft-serve delight. The company came up with a few different flavors, but their Pineapple flavor is the most popular. 

This pineapple treat became so popular that Disney World now sells it!  This is the actual recipe Walt Disney World shared in 2020, however it’s not quite the exact version they sell in their parks.  

Why? Because they use a powder and water mixture in their soft serve machines.  A mixture we don’t have access to at home.  The power makes it vegan and gluten free.  

At home however, they came up with a quick and easy alternative to the power by using vanilla ice cream.  You get the same flavor and texture, though it’s no longer vegan.  

How to make Dole Whip:  

With just three ingredients and five steps, this recipe will be ready to devour in no time! 

  1. Put all the ingredients into your blender.
  2. Mix it up.
  3. Pipe it out! 

See how easy that is?  And if you’re in a hurry, don’t even pipe it out, just eat it out of the blender!

Pro Tips for this Dole Whip Recipe: 

  • Use a blender with a lot of power! Blending frozen pineapple can be tricky, so using one with a little more oomph can help get the job done faster! 
  • Use that blender in small bursts until the end. You might even want to keep pushing the pineapple chunks towards the bottom as you pulse the blender to make sure everything is nice and creamy!

Dole Whip Float! 

Take this recipe and make it a float! For this, you don’t need to change any of the ingredients, simply serve it different.

  • Make your dole whip as directed.  
  • Place it in your cup.
  • Add more pineapple juice! It’s suddenly a float!



Is Dole Whip vegan? 

The dole whip recipe I’ve shared is not vegan – but the original recipe you can find at the parks is! If we follow their lead and make this recipe with a non-dairy ice cream, then the this recipe magically becomes vegan! Such a simple switch to be able to share with your non-dairy friends! 

Is Dole Whip dairy free? 

The recipe that you can find here is not dairy free. However, the original recipe that they serve at Disneyland is dairy free! If you’re looking for a dairy free option, you could use dairy free ice cream instead of regular ice cream.

Why is it called Dole Whip?

This pineapple whip was created by the Dole Food Company, hence the Dole part of the name.  Whip because it’s light and fluffy and not dense like traditional ice cream. 

Dole Whip is a delicious and chilly dairy-free frozen dessert soft-serve delight. They have several flavors to choose from, but the original flavor was pineapple – and this original is certainly the most popular! 

What is the best liquid to put in a smoothie? 

To make this recipe super amazing, you’ll want to add 100% Pineapple juice to help create that delicious pineapple flavor that this recipe is famous for.

What can I put in a smoothie to thicken it? 

You can always add a little more ice cream to your smoothie to thicken it! You could also add a little less pineapple juice to make your Dole Whip Recipe thicker. But I would recommend adding ice cream to thicken it so you can keep that pineapple flavor big and bold!

True. However Disney knew that the public couldn't get their hands on the non dairy ingredients so they released this recipe to the public as the at home version.
