Disney DIY Recipes – Dole Whip!

Standard

We are starting to feel like summer here!  At least compared to the brutal winter.  So, I thought it was time to try a hot-weather recipe, even if it ended up being overcast today.  Oh well.

I have never actually tried a Dole Whip at Disney World.  I keep seeing online how it is the greatest thing since sliced bread, so I figured if I can’t try one at Disney World, I might as well make one at home!

Dole Whip (recipe from here)

  • 2 cans (20 oz. each)  crushed pineapple
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream

  1. Drain pineapple: reserve 2 tbsp. juice.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Place pineapple, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar and reserved pineapple juice in blender.
  4. Cover and blend until smooth.
  5. Pour into two 1-quart freezer zipped bags.
  6. Store bags flat in freezer.
  7. Freeze 1 1/2 hours or until slushy.
  8. Stir pineapple slush gently into whipped cream until slightly blended in large bowl.
  9. Again pour into two 1-quart freezer zipped bags
  10. Return to freezer until completely frozen, about 1 hour and serve.

I used my Magic Bullet and made this in 2 batches.  It makes quite a bit, so you could probably halve the recipe if you are only making it for yourself.

It was good, but very, very pineapple-y.  Does that make sense?  I don’t think I could eat more than a little bit.  Also, using the crushed pineapple I ended up with a bit of pineapple pulp.

I’m putting this on my list of must-try snack next trip to Disney World to see how our homemade version compares!
