How to Make Dole Whip (Pineapple 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 other locations, too!)

What is Dole Whip Made Of?

The Dole whip you can buy at Disneyland is made with sugar, coconut oil, natural and artificial flavors (including pineapple juice), and lots of stabilizers. This allows it be mixed with water and come out of a soft serve machine, but it’s not exactly something you want to replicate at home.

Is Dole Whip Vegan?

Dole Whip is dairy-free and vegan, which is probably one of the reasons it’s so popular. Even with dietary restrictions, most family members can enjoy it!

How To Make Dole Whip at Home

Calling for just three ingredients, this homemade Dole Whip couldn’t be easier to prepare. It doesn’t have the exact same texture as the original, but you can pipe it into a glass for a similar effect! Plus, you’ll avoid the long wait line at Disneyland.

Combine the frozen pineapple with the almond milk and honey, then blend until a frozen sorbet texture is achieved. (My kids also love it when I make this with orange juice instead of the milk and honey– no extra sweetener is needed when you use the OJ.)

how to make dole whip and pipe it into a dish

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.

Thanks!

Teri

Have you ever tried any other type of fruit in this recipe?

Angela

Was wondering if Rice Milk would work? I’m allergic to dairy and nuts including coconut.

Sarah

Thx! I am going to make this for my daughter’s birthday party! p.s. We live in San Diego, where Lappert’s sells dole whip & dole whip desserts.

Mary

Yummy, but my food processor couldn’t handle of. I had to do on two batches and add milk.

Kathy Brown

I made this tonight. We love it!! So refreshing.

betsey

The Washington County Fair and the Minnesota State Fair have Dole Whip stands.

Kathleen

Do you know the nutrition for 1/2 cup or 1 cup servings?

Karen

I got almost the same recipe out of the vitamix cookbook but it’s for raspberry sorbet. I hardly ever use it for raspberry but use it all the time for mango! It’s delicious! I use about 1lb frozen mangos 1c almond milk 1/3 c of maple syrup and 1tsp vanilla. I have a few more recipes on my blog at thatrandomproject.blogspot.com

Jeanie

I’m a peach girl myself, so I’m going to adapt this and have a peach whip this weekend. Can’t live without my Vitamix, love finding different recipes to try.

Megan

Has anyone tried this with cows milk?

Megan

Looks the the leftovers would make great Popsicles! I have a zoku pop freezer I’ve been needing to use. Thanks! You do a great job!

Norma

Guess I missed out on the original recipe! Would you mind printing it again?

Susan

Any chance you could use a Yonanas machine? Maybe do the frozen pineapple in the Yonanas machine then fold in the almond milk and honey?

Tris

Does regular milk work?

Food, Faith, and Other Fabulous Finds

This is my hubby’s new favorite recipe. Thank you so much for sharing a healthy treat that he can “indulge” in.

Valarie

Tried it tonight we condensed milk and agave nectar and it was wonderful!! Can wait to try it with coconut milk.

Mandy

just to let anyone know, I made this with regular skim milk and it was still mondo delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

Arlene

I just got a cuisinart soft serve ice cream maker for Christmas… Can I make this Dole pineapple whip recipe in this new ice cream maker?

tabitha

I have a Yonana maker, I bet I could just puree everything in the blender, freeze in ice cube tray and then feed the cubes into the Yonana maker and get the “ice cream” texture ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for posting!

Sarah

Curious how you make your own almondmilk.

Shannon

I added a frozen banana instead of honey for the sweetness. It also added a creaminess to it that made the consistency exactly like soft serve ice cream!! So delicious and healthy! I will be making this more often ๐Ÿ™‚

This inspired me to make a similar version. I took vanilla Greek yogurt and mixed frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries, mango and pineapple) my son had no idea he was eating healthy ice cream. Was really delicious. Can’t wait to try your pineapple whip sounds awesome.

sue bang

Has anyone tried it in just a regular blender? Does it work?
Thanks

    Megan Gilmore

    If you have a food processor, that works! I’m not sure a regular blender could get it smooth enough, though.

    Karen

    No, but a juicer achieves the same effect with just frozen pineapple. Frozen banana alternated with froz. pineapple is visually interesting and delicious!

Shellie

What would I be looking at in carbs and calories. The Dole Whip sounds wonderful. Being diabetic, I’m counting carbs everyday. Thanks

Treasures By Brenda

Looks delicious. I’ve never had the real thing but might give this a try anyway.

Christina Aldridge

This looks great. You can also get authentic Dole Whip at Jumping Jacks in Scotia, NY (Just over the bridge from Schenectady) during the late spring and summer months when they are open. Sadly, I’ve moved quite far away so I will have to try this recipe when I’m missing a bit of home.

Gene

So awesome! Thanks for the recipe. I plan on using it after I return from my trip. I have gout, and one of the big pieces to helping gout is the active ingredients in Pineapple. You bet, I’ll try this! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks so much for such a simple recipe!!!!

Kiki

Very yummy! Used coconut milk in a can and used my food processor. Only prob was the honey turned into little chunks throughout-I so need a Vitamix.

Mr Bill

Add rum and it’s a frozen “Mai Tai”!

Megan L

Anyone try in a NutriBullet??

    Dianne arnold

    Yes my nutrition bullet worked great!

Hila

Made it in the food processor. My son and I both loved it! Thank you.
