Homemade Disney Dole Whip

I am so excited to share this recipe for homemade Disneyland Dole Whip with you today. Disney recently shared the recipe for their famous treat on the Disneyland app. This tangy, sweet, cool, and refreshing treat is the perfect snack for a hot and humid day.

This has to be one of my favorite copycat recipes! The line to get Dole Whip can sometimes be longer than the lines for rides at Disney’s parks. This is more than a soft serve, ice cream, or drink. These are the most refreshing and delicious treats, and now they can be made right from the comfort of home. No need for a trip to Disney World or a long wait in a line.

If you’ve never had a Dole whip before, you are in for a real treat. Get your blender, pineapple, and ice cream, and get ready for a yummy summer drink. Not only will your kids love these but you will, too!

What is a Dole Whip?

The Dole Whip is one of the Disney parks’ most iconic snacks! It’s a refreshing treat made using ice cream, along with Dole pineapple and pineapple juice, which is how it got its name.

When enjoying this tropical snack at the Disney parks, you can enjoy it on its own, swirled with vanilla ice cream, or as a float with pineapple juice.

We’re using the official Disney recipe which includes Dole pineapple juice, frozen pineapple chunks, and ice cream to recreate this delicious soft serve at home. While the original recipe is dairy-free, we’ve decided to use regular ice cream. However, it could easily be swapped out to keep it a dairy-free treat (I’ve included the dairy-free instructions below too!).

Either way, these things are seriously so delicious!Dole Whip Ingredients - Pineapple chunks, pineapple juice and vanilla ice cream

Ingredients

  • 1 big scoop of ice cream
  • 4 oz of pineapple juice
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple

Note: The original Dole Whip is dairy-free, so you’ll want to use dairy-free ice cream if you want to make the real thing. You can see below for a dairy-free option.

How to Make Disney’s Dole Whip

Step 1: Add all ingredients to a blender and blend together until it’s a thick drink. This tends to turn out best if the pineapple is half thawed and a little bit softer.

Note: I recommend using a high powered blender to mix this up.ice cream and pineapple in a blender

Step 2: Add your ice cream swirl, make your float, or just serve it up as is. It’s really that simple, and you’re done!

You can serve your whip right away, or put it back in the freezer for about 2 hours to let it set up a bit more and serve later.

Can I Make Dole Whips Ahead of Time?

You certainly can make Dole whips ahead of time, although I don’t recommend it. Making these any more than a couple of hours ahead of time (just for time to set) can change the end result and consistency completely. It won’t be quite so creamy.

If you would like to make it ahead of time, here’s how to do it. Follow the instructions above, and freeze the finished Dole Whip in an airtight container in the freezer for no more than 24 hours.

When ready to serve, I would recommend serving it as a float, by putting scoops of the frozen whip in a glass with Dole pineapple juice.

    This is NOT the Disney recipe. Dole Whip is dairy free and definitely does not include ice cream!

    1. Christy – this is actually the OFFICIAL Disney recipe that they put out! Now….. I agree, it isn’t exactly what you get in the park due to the ice cream and the parks is dairy free. BUT, this is the exact recipe that they published. ALSO, you will notice in the post there is a way to make it DAIRY FREE. So if you are looking for that, it is in the post above.

    2. you’re right! neither recipe is a Disneyland recipe…it might be what they published, but a real Dole Whip doesn’t have banana or coconut milk either…a real Dole Whip is really a sorbet

  2. You may want to give offical credit to Disney for this recipe and to their blog page. Seems like you’re trying to use their recipe for your own blog advantage.

    As mentioned by others it’s not the actual recipe used in the parks. It’s an at home variation. What is used in the parks is a mix that is dairy free. Which yes, you can make this homemade variation dairy free.

    1. Anne thank you so much! Did you get a chance to read the article where I mention multiple times that this is from Disney (hence giving them credit.) I also mention in the article that about the dairy free factor. So appreciate your time reading the article.

    2. Are you even reading the right blog post? Apparently not since you want to call her out for stuff she actually DID include. Rude.

    3. Hey stupid recipe troll stop disrespecting people that are legitimate and giving credit where it is due! Lean how to F-ing read dumb ass! You feel better B**** feeling like your a tattle tale?!

    I loved the flavor. Delicious! One question though…did you get a slight stringiness from the pineapple? Seems like my Ninja whipped it so good that it sort of extracted strings from the pineapple and ended up in my mouth.

  4. Wow, some of the comments here are unbelievable. Even in my very advanced years and with declining cognitive abilities, I saw that it was a Disney recipe and that a dairy-free version of the recipe followed your original recipe post. I cannot buy frozen pineapple so will freeze Dole Chunks but am very much looking forward to trying. Thank you for posting.

    Thank you for sharing this official Disney recipe with us Jenn!! I appreciate the fact that you gave us their original Dairy-Free, as well as version that’s not Dairy-Free. If those that ae easy to jump on and criticize you would actually read your entire post/recipe, they would see that you do indeed give Disney credit for this recipe, and you do indeed also include the Dairy-Free version as well. These people are extremely rude, and have no business even being on your blog if they don’t have somethin positive to say. I love all of your recipes!! And quite honestly, they probably do as well~ otherwise, they wouldn’t be on your page. Continue doing what you’re dong, because you do an amaZing job! And again, thank you for this recipe. I’m making it for my daughter as we speak.

      I apologize for the punctuation errors in my post/comment. I was talk texting my comment, and couldn’t proof-read until I stopped. Lol I’m sure it will only take someone a split second to figure out exactly what I meant/was saying.
