Pineapple Dole Whips

Recreate one of the most popular Disney treats at home with this copycat recipe for Pineapple Dole Whips! My first time trying a Dole Whip wasn’t at Disney, but at the Dole Pineapple Factory in Hawaii.  I went with my Girl Scout troop in 8th grade and I always remembered the amazing pineapple treat we had, but it wasn’t until having another one as an adult at Disneyland that made me want to figure out how to make them.

 Fast forward to a few days ago when I received an email in my inbox from one of my best friends requesting that I quickly (apparently she had a deadline) come up with a little healthier version of the Pineapple Dole Whip that everyone loves at Disney World.  Sure thing…it’s been on my to-do list for a really long time.

All the recipes that I came across call for canned pineapple.  Why?  Why not real, fresh, sweet pineapple?!?!  And I took out the sugar and used a little agave nectar instead.  It’s healthier and a low glycemix index food.  I used my VitaMix to make most of this dessert; however, a BlendTec or food processor would work and an ice cream maker is needed!

Whatever you do….do not ruin the most amazing dessert by using cool whip!  The original version at Disney is vegan…so let’s keep it that way.  Don’t be tempted by the short cuts….an ice cream maker isn’t too expensive and will make this amazing dessert.

The kids were on top of me begging for their drinks and licking the counter where it spilled a little. I could not keep those little ones away from it.  That is the downfall of blogging and making yummy new treats.  Those darn kids…they just don’t understand a photo shoot and getting a great picture.

  1. Hi,
    I have never had one these before and looking at the picture it looks like there are two different parts; the pineapple part and the creamy part on top. Is the recipe posted just for the pineapple part and if so, what is the part on top? is that some type of whip cream? Thanks

    • Hi Regina, It’s just whipping cream from a can on top….nothing special. :) The real Dole Whips at Disney do not have whipped cream, but I really like to add it when I make them at home.

  2. These Pineapple whips look amazing, and I want to make these for a fun summertime drink. They look easy to make and so pretty!

  3. I have never tried one of these gems but I plan to definitely try this out. This would be the perfect Summer treat and I could only hope I could be in Disney enjoying it! Such pretty pictures you have taken! :)

  4. I totally have to try this. We were at Disney for the first time in March and those Dole Whips rocked my world. They are so good. Cannot wait to try your version.

  5. The cores are the best part! I think I’m mildly allergic to pineapple, but the cores don’t cause the same problems as the rest of the pineapple. I will be trying this recipe soon!

  6. Yum! This looks so good! I like the healthier option! Fresh is always better than canned. Ill have to give this a try this week and see how the kids like it.

  7. They DO have these at Disneyland, at the shack by the Tiki Room. My only real complaint about this clone is that it isn’t dairy-free like the original. (Not that I have a problem with dairy! Just that a real Pineapple Whip has no dairy in it.) Can’t wait to try it. Also, try as a whip float… add a little pineapple juice to your whip. Yum yum!
