Dole Whips are one of the most popular sweet treats since Dole partnered with Disneyland in 1976, in fact, plan on waiting in a line at any given point. If you’ve never heard of the Dole Whip, then let me introduce you to a whole new delicious world of pineapple soft-serve (All together now, ‘Yuuuum’). There are three places you can snag a Dole Whip while visiting Disney Parks:
- Tiki’s Juice Bar – This is a small walk up bar next to the Enchanted Tiki Room show in Adventureland. Grab a Dole Whip to enjoy while watching the iconic animatronic birds sing!
Walt Disney World
- Aloha Isle – It’s located at the Magic Kingdom near the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland. Again, get your Dole Whip for the show!
- Captain Cook’s – Captain Cook’s is at the Polynesian Resort.
When creating your own Dole Whip at home, you must have patience. It’s a super simple process, but it takes a little time to create the cream soft-serve consistency than, say, when making a smoothie. When running the blender I had to stop every few seconds to stir the frozen mixture until it was all finely blended together. I caution to resist the temptation to stir your Dole Whip while the blender is running. You may loose a spoon…or a hand. Stop your blender often to mix. Be patient, it will get there.
- 2 cups pineapple chunks, frozen
- 1 cup coconut milk, chilled
- 1 tbsp condensed milk or desired sweetener
- Pour coconut milk and condensed milk into blender.
- Add pineapple.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
- Be patient. You'll need to stop the blender often to stir the mixture. You're looking for a soft-serve sorbet consistency, so it's going to take a bit longer than usual to blend the ingredients. Replace the condensed milk for another sweetener to make it vegan and dairy-free.
We used straws for the picture, but we ate them with a spoon! Be sure to pin this recipe for later, and don’t forget to tag us on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #yohotasteofdisney when you make your own Dole Whips.
