Pineapple Whip


Every time I visit Disneyland, I look forward to enjoying a dish of Dole Whip.

If you’re not familiar with Dole Whip, it’s a dairy-free pineapple sorbet, with the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. It’s amazingly delicious! It’s also pretty difficult to come by, unless you’re visiting Disneyland or the Dole Plantation in Hawaii. (Though, I hear they are going to be offering it at Six Flags, and a few other locations soon!)

After a recent trip to Disneyland for my birthday, I decided I couldn’t wait until our next Disney trip to enjoy this sweet and creamy treat again. I also happened to look up the ingredients, and not surprisingly, they aren’t ideal. I’d rather skip the thickeners, stabilizers, and additives found in the original, and make my own!

Calling for just three ingredients, this version couldn’t be simpler. It doesn’t have the exact same texture as the original, but it does pack a sweet and flavorful punch that’s sure to cure any craving for the real thing! Plus, you’ll save yourself a trip to Disneyland.

Pineapple Whip
makes 4-6 servings

Adapted from ice-cream-freaks.com

Ingredients:

1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup almond milk, or non-dairy milk of choice
1 tablespoon honey (optional, for authentic sweetness)

Directions:

First off, you’ll want to freeze the pineapple chunks. I chopped mine a day ahead of time, and froze the chunks overnight. You could also purchase frozen pineapple, if you prefer. As you can see from the picture below, the frozen pineapple reached the 6.5 – 7 cup mark on my blender pitcher.

This recipe works best in a high-speed blender, like the Vitamix, because you’ll need to be able to pulverize the pineapple into an ice-cream-like consistency. A normal blender will most likely not work, but a food processor might.

Combine the frozen pineapple with the almond milk and honey, then blend until a frozen sorbet texture is achieved. For an authentic Dole Whip presentation, transfer the frozen dessert to a large plastic bag, and cut off the tip to create a piping bag. Pipe the pineapple whip into 4-6 dishes, and serve immediately!

Any leftovers can be frozen in an ice cube tray, and used in smoothies later.

Looks delicious! Could you make it with canned pineapple chunks?

    Jesse

    Yes, I am a chef and you just dice the canned pineapples and chop or blend to your own consistency then follow the directions and reblend it all together so that it isn’t chunky

Noemi

Just made this for breakfast using coconut milk. Kids loved it and so did I!

Nolan

Better with fresh pineapple

Liz

Does it need to be nondairy milk?

Connie

I did with frozen peache pieces today, delish

Amy

I have never tried this and sounds delicious but Dole makes a Yonana which takes frozen fruit and makes instant sorbet without adding anything else. It’s amazing. Target sells them for $50

Suzanne

For the last 10 + years it is also at the MN state fair. There is a couple there that opened a stand because they love dole whip so much.
