Dole Pineapple Whips

Fun fact about me: I am an avid Disneyland supporter. My whole family is! My first trip to Disneyland {that I can remember} was as a freshman in high school. I’ve gone back almost every year since, not including the year we went to Disneyworld instead. I guess that still kinda counts though. Zachary and I actually got to go to Disneyland twice this year and I absolutely loved it! Nothing will make me feel like I am 7 years old quicker, than walking through those magical gates. There’s just something about that place that makes you want to skip and run and act like a child. One of my family’s favorite rides there is Pirates of the Caribbean. It may not be the most “thrilling” ride in the world, but it’s still so fun! It’s always been my dream to eat at the restaurant inside of it someday. I might have to sell our first child to do so, but it might just be worth it! {I’m kidding.} For now, we’ll just stick to eating at Pinnochio’s Village Haus in Fantasyland and random vendors selling hot dogs and churros. My favorite food that I’ve ever had in Disneyland thus far though, would definitely have to be their Dole Pineapple Whips. They’re to die for!

When I saw that Dole had posted the recipe for this on their website, I was ecstatic! It was a little different making them at home, since I don’t have a soft serve ice cream maker, but they were still just as delicious!


Ice cream:

  • 2 cans (20 oz. each) crushed pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups whipping cream, whipped. {Here is a tutorial on how to whip whipping cream, just in case you’ve never done it before.}
  • Pineapple juice {As much or little as you want}
  • Sugar, to taste
  1. ICE CREAM: Drain crushed pineapple and reserve 2 Tbsp. Set aside.
  2. Place pineapple, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar and reserved juice in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. {Go just a little bit longer than you think you need to. Otherwise, your resulting ice cream will be lumpy. Sick.}
  3. Pour into a gallon zipped freezer bag and store flat in freezer until it becomes a slushy consistency. {About 1-1/2 hours.}
  4. In a large bowl, gently fold pineapple mixture into whipped cream until blended.
  5. Return to freezer until completely frozen. {About 1 hour.)
  6. JUICE:  {This part really isn’t anything special, but I thought I’d let you know how we did it anyway.} Add enough sugar to your pineapple juice to make it sweet enough to your liking. {We also diluted it with a tiny bit of water, but it really just depends on how it tastes to you.}
  7. Scoop ice cream into a cup and fill the rest of the way with your juice.
  8. Sit back and relax and pretend you’re riding Space Mountain.
We’ve had this yummy drink both in Disneyland and at the Dole plantation in Hawaii and I love it. I’m so glad I found this recipe, so I can enjoy them any day I want now!

    I knew I loved your blog but now I love it even more. I am a huge Disney lover. I got to Dismey World as we live on the east coast but someday I will make it to disneyland. Thanks for the recipe, I will make sure to share with my friends!

    What a great recipe. Looks absolutely delish. I wonder if those are at Disney World? Well it doesn’t matter, I can make it myself. Love your blow…following

    We LOVE pineapple and all things citrus here. I’ll have to make some of these up soon. Thank you for sharing. :)

    Followed you over from Southern Institute!

    Looks delicious! My husband and I went to Disneyworld for the first time this year and had Pineapple whips after we rode Pirates of the Caribbean. We loved it! I’m going to have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing.

    I found your recipe on the Back for Seconds social. This looks incredible! I adore making ice cream from whipped cream. It’s so easy and versatile. This looks so refreshing…and it’s reminiscent of Disneyland?! Wins all around.

    I had to comment… I love Disneyland too (like most people in the world)! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have married into a family that goes at least every two years. Before marrying my husband I went twice. Since marrying him (four years ago) I’ve been four times! Once was on our honeymoon when we DID eat at the Blue Bayou in the Pirates ride. It was our main honeymoon romantic dinner/splurge. It was definitely anti-climatic (food was only okay) but yet somehow still worth going! And I promise, it won’t break the bank – save up just a little, make a reservation way in advance, and then don’t go crazy with your order:)

    Does this taste anything like Sonic’s pineapple shakes? I think all it contains is ice cream and pineapple juice blended together. I make them at home, too.

    Just to give you the heads up, Blue Bayou is not that expensive to eat at. Its just hard to get a table. If you make a reservation the day before you go to DL you should be able to get a table. Now, Club 33 will cost you your first born and your soul…

    Just found this bc of a pin on Pinterest. I tried to click on the link that has the recipe from Dole but it’s no longer available. Did they list whipping cream as one of the ingredients? Because all flavors of Dole Whip are advertised as dairy free and they have been for the past 20 years. If there is in fact dairy in it, then I need to stay away.
