In April, Disney released their recipe for Dole Whip on the My Disney Experience App. If you haven’t tried it yet you are missing out. Disney’s Dole Whip was introduced to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts in 1986, and has been a huge hit ever since.
There are 6 Dole Whip fruit flavors served at Disney (pineapple, orange, raspberry, strawberry, mango, and lemon), although pineapple is the most popular. This recipe can be made with any of the fruit listed, just make sure it is frozen. If you don’t have frozen pineapple you can replace it with fresh or even canned pineapple. Drain off the juice and freeze the pineapple before adding it to the blender.
The Dole Whip’s served in the park are non dairy, but the recipe they released to the public uses vanilla ice cream. Canned coconut milk, soy, almond or oat milk may be used in place of the ice cream if you prefer a non dairy version. I would suggest slightly freezing the milk to achieve the soft serve consistency that ice cream produces. Or place in the freezer after blending until desired consistency is reached.
To make an adult version replace the pineapple juice with vodka or rum. Coconut, vanilla, pineapple or spiced flavored rum or vodka compliment the pineapple extremely well. Enjoy!

- Disney suggests putting the blended mixture into a piping bag and piping a swirl into your bowl for the iconic soft-serve look.
