Disney Parks Pineapple Dole Whip

Introduction: Disney Parks Pineapple Dole Whip

About: Hello and Welcome to In the Kitchen With Matt. I am your host Matt Taylor. My goal for the show is to teach you how to cook really good food at home for cheap. Eating out everyday can get expensive, but it doe…

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make the famous Disney Parks Dole Whip recipe. Well as close as you can get to it at home. Are you a fan of all things Disney and the food they serve at their parks? This homemade Disneyland pineapple dole whip recipe was released to the public by Disney along with a few other recipes while the parks were closed.

But according to my friend who is a pastry chef that works for Disney, in her words, "Unfortunately, that is not the actual recipe, but it is the closest thing you’ll get to it making it at home. They basically get a dole whip mix powder and add that to the ice cream."

This classic pineapple treat is like a mix between a smoothie and soft-serve ice cream, it is super easy to make at home with only 3 ingredients. If I can do it, you can do it. Time to bring a bit of that Disney magic to your own home. Let's get started!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other Instructables. :)

Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both! :)

Step 1: Ingredients

You may print the recipe hereif you like.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple (16oz, 454g)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (use more as necessary for desired consistency) (120ml)
  • 1 heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream

Tools:

  • Blender (Strong one)
  • Spoon
  • Piping bag or plastic bag with a star tip

***Classic Dole whip is dairy-free, Dole has their own version that you can use as well if you like, but it isn't the one Disney Parks have either and not the one Disney released for what should be really called "Their at-home version", haha:

  • 1 cup ripe DOLE® pineapple, chopped and frozen
  • 1 ripe DOLE® Banana, peeled and frozen
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut mil
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

Step 2: Blend Blend Blend

Begin by adding the frozen pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, and vanilla ice cream in a powerful blender. Then blend until smooth. You may need to add a few more tablespoons of pineapple juice. I usually start with the ice crush mode and go from there.

After a few seconds if the blending stops and it doesn't seem like anything is getting blended. Shut the blender off and remove the lid, then use a spoon or move things around. Put the top on again and blend, etc. You may have to do this a few times depending on the blender you use.

Note: You can use fresh pineapple that you cut and freeze yourself, or just buy the 16 oz bags of frozen dole pineapple chunks, which is what I usually do since that is the perfect amount.

Step 3: Pipe and Serve

Now all you need to do is add the smooth mixture to a piping bag with a star tip and then fill up the bowls you want to serve it in.

You can use a plastic bag with a tip as well if you don't want to use a piping bag. Also, you don't even need to do that, you can just scoop it as-is into the bowls. It will still taste the same!

Make sure to serve it right away before it melts and loses its consistency, but if so it will just wind up being like a smoothie, haha, and still taste amazing.

And that is how you bring a little Disney food magic to your home. I told you it was easy. :)

    That's interesting that Disney released this recipe. The non-dairy recipe is on the Dole web site. https://www.dole.com/recipes/d/DIY-DOLE-WHIP. The main ingredients are pinnapple, banana, and coconut milk. I'm sure your recipe is delicious but not the original recipe. At any rate making this with whatever dairy or non-dairy ingredients you have will result in a tasty treat.

    I know right? The one from Dole isn't the recipe the parks use either, however. It turns out they use a powder mix, haha. So neither of these two recipes are the actual recipe they use currently. And all the news outlets and people recreating it on their sites are going off of these news reports. Most of them are saying it is the "official" recipe from the parks. haha, media misleading the public. But I found this article which clears it up a bit. For me, in Google, if you search "Disney Dole Whip Official Recipe" This article didn't come up until the second page. https://nerdist.com/article/disney-dole-whip-recipe/ haha, but I will edit this Instructable to include this one. But yes you definitely can't go wrong with either recipe. Very tasty.

    Hi Matt, I'm pretty sure Dole whip is non-dairy, so I'm a bit skeptical that this is the "official" recipe. We get it locally (not at Disney) at several soft-serve places and they all advertise it as non-dairy (and it's definitely with the Dole logo). Also, here's a Disney blog that calls it out as such: https://www.disneytouristblog.com/dole-whip/ .

    Ah.. ok.. so that agrees with what I see locally then. Sorry for stirring up arguments here. Nicely done instructable and I'm sure it tastes great, regardless of how it came to be! Hopefully there's no such thing as bad publicity!

    No problem! Glad you did. Because all those links that I shared totally mislead the public into thinking it was Disney's recipe they use in the parks. haha. And I was defending them vehemently because they all were saying the same thing. lol. Yes, it tastes super yummy! haha. But I am going to edit this to include the version that Dole released. But this news release I just found, paints a better picture. And includes both versions haha. https://nerdist.com/article/disney-dole-whip-recipe/

    I’m not doubting your claim that Disney posted the recipe, I’m saying that Disney is full of whipped doo doo. I’ve seen that Disney “released” the recipe, but what they did is just share a recipe that gets you a sorta Dole Whip at home while disingenuously implying that they’re mixing up wholesome frozen fruit treats for all the kiddies. I guess it would’ve taken the fun out of it to say “We buy giant bags of frozen mix made from 93% sugar and lots of tropical oils!”
    But the whole thing with Dole Whip is it’s non-dairy. What you get at Disney is real Dole Whip, not a dairified version. You CAN make real Dole Whip at home but you need some ice cream equipment - at least an ice cream maker if you don’t have room on the counter for a soft serve machine! (I suppose you could fake it with a blender)
    You can buy big bags of the REAL mix, and as you can see on the ingredients it’s basically pineapple flavored sugar whipped up with lots of oils and gums.
    So the enigma that is Dole Whip is there for all to see.

    :) Yes, but this Instructable wasn't about the authentic recipe from Dole. It is for Disney fans who want to recreate the one from the Disney Parks. :) And yes I know all about the Dole bags of premade whip you can buy. :) I made no claim it was more healthy or didn't have sugar in it, haha. But that small bit of ice cream in relation to the frozen fruit and the 100% pineapple juice doesn't give it a whole lot more sugar. That is one scroop of ice cream spread out over 6 servings. :)

    THIS IS NOT THE ONE FROM DISNEY PARKS! That’s the whole point of what we’re saying. This is a ‘home friendly’ version that Disney has put out a recipe for. Claiming that this is the ‘Dole Whip from Disney’ is inaccurate, because this ISNT DOLE WHIP AT ALL. I don’t know that Disney said this is the “secret recipe” that they use in the parks, as opposed to just “releasing” a recipe and allowing the fans to assume it’s the same treat as the parks serve. It’s not the same treat. At all. That’s the point. Disney uses a giant size bag of the Dole Whip mix, and insert it into a soft serve machine. So if you REALLY want to recreate the genuine article, you’d buy the bag of mix and figure out a way to make it. This Instructable is for making a soft pineapple ice cream treat that is vaguely reminiscent of a Disney Dole Whip. That’s cool, probably even better for you. But it ain’t the Disney Dole Whip, which contains (ironically) almost no pineapple aside from the juice used to flavor it.

    UPDATE: I should have asked my friend before, who is a pastry chef that works for Disney Parks, in Orlando. Without you continuing to question it, I wouldn't have asked her. I asked her if that article and all the others that pretty say the same thing are lying, this is her response: "Unfortunately they are not the actual recipes, but it is the closest thing you’ll get to it making it at home. They basically get a dole whip mix powder and add that to the ice cream". I edited the Instructable to include one of the source links. I will add her comment as well. Not sure if fans will care or not. But your statement about the Dole whip mix powder in a soft-serve machine is indeed correct. But the problem is, if I didn't have my "insider" friend..get the irony there? To correct me, straight from the REAL source. You have several reputable articles calling it THE recipe. haha. Anyways, I apologize for believing the media. :) But yes I will make the clarification as to not "Mislead" other people. Thanks. I have no problem admitting when I am wrong, but sometimes it takes more evidence, for me to believe when I am wrong. ;) Take it easy, have a great weekend.

    Yeah, there ain’t no ice cream in Dole Whip! Unfortunately, that probably means there’s some kinda guar gum, or hydrogenated coconut oil, or whatever they use to make it ‘creamy’ without the dairy. Kinda takes the fun out of the diy if you have to source buckets of guar gum!

    And that blog is just a fan blog, it isn't an official Disney blog. :)
