If you have ever been to Disneyland, I’m sure you have come across their iconic Pineapple Dole Whip. This copycat recipe does its best to come close to the frozen classic. There does seem to be some magical ingredients or process in which the theme park makes this wonder, and rightfully so. It is the Magical Kingdom, isn’t it!
What is a Dole Whip
So, what is all the hype about with the dole whip? I wondered the same thing myself until I tried one. It is a pretty simple frozen treat that is dairy free and flavored with an abundance of pineapple. There are rumors that the theme park makes theirs with a powdered version of the fruit along with a stabilizer to give the whip its texture. Just imagine pineapple soft serve. Yes, please!
Homemade Dole Whip
If you’ve never been to Disneyland and had the pineapple dole whip, have no fear. This recipe is easy only takes a few ingredients and comes out just as smooth and creamy. So, no waiting in long lines, you can have your own frozen treat in just a few minutes!
All you need is a can of pineapple chunks, or you can cut up a fresh pineapple. But to keep things easy, I’d go for the can. Then you add a little unsweetened coconut milk, powdered sugar, a splash of lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Blend it all together and poof! You have made your own pineapple dole whip without having to buy a ticket to the theme park! 🙂
Pineapple Dole Whip
- 2 cups frozen pineapple
- 1/4 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk, full fat (or milk of your choice)
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- pinch salt
- 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- In a blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth. To serve, spoon into serving dishes, or transfer dole whip to a piping bag and pipe out swirls – to mimic ice cream swirls!
- Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer. The mix will freeze solid and let defrost slightly before serving.
