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 other locations, too!)
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.
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.

- If you make this recipe with orange juice instead of almond milk, you won’t need any added sweetener. My kids love it this way!
- For a Pina Colada flavor, try using coconut milk as this liquid.
