How to make your own Dole Whip

You can make this famous Disney treat at home with only four ingredients and no long lines.

At Disneyland and Disney World, it's expected that you'll have to wait in line for rides.

But there's also a treat that draws huge crowds.

Dole Whip has become a cult phenomenon.

It has such a big fan following, you can buy Dole Whip t-shirts, Dole Whip phone cases, Dole Whip jewelry and more.

Sold at Disney Parks and the Dole Plantation in Hawaii, it's basically a pineapple-flavored soft serve.

The creamy treat can be enjoyed on its own or as a float with pineapple juice.

And it's really easy to make at home.

We found a lot of recipes online, and had a delicious few weeks testing them out. The one below gave the best fresh flavor combined with the smooth, light texture reminiscent of the real thing.

Homemade Dole Whip

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 8 oz frozen Cool Whip
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks

Instructions:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender in the order above. Be sure your Cool Whip and pineapple chunks are completely frozen. I also put the pineapple juice in the freezer for a few hours so that it was partially frozen. This just helps the final product be a little more stiff.
  2. Blend until smooth. You may have to turn the blender off and on a few times and stir the mixture a few times, but it will eventually get there. Once it's nice a creamy you're done.
  3. Serve in your favorite dish, or top with pineapple juice for a delicious float!
