If you’ve ever been to Disneyland and had the pineapple Dole whips there (or the Dole whip float) then you’ll understand that this treat is hard to get off your mind. But, since the only places to get the real deal are Disney parks it is a very rare treat indeed. But, due to the 2020 shutdown of Disney parks due to the novel coronavirus, the animation and theme park giant has released the official Disney Dole whip recipe and we are here for it.

The Disney Parks app recently released the recipe to their customers with the instructions to blend until the dessert is like a thick drink. However, we would add less pineapple juice in order to be true to the soft-serve consistency we’re used to.

The ingredients are as follows:

  • 1 big scoop of ice cream
  • 4 oz of pineapple juice
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple

If that doesn’t seem right then just know that there is also a Dole whip recipe that comes straight from Dole. This recipe uses banana, frozen pineapple juice, and no pineapple chunks at all.

  • 1 cup pineapple juice, frozen in an ice cube tray
  • 1 banana, peeled and frozen
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage

The choice of which one to use is up to you. And, obviously you can add whatever you’d like to make your custom creation. Mango, strawberry, and coconut pulp all sound like delicious additions. However you make it is sure to remind you of happier days spend wandering through Disney parks on a hot day, enjoying a cool treat in the happiest place on Earth.

For fans of Disney theme parks (and food) a homemade Dole whip will have to hold everyone over until the parks reopen once again.
