Homemade Dole Whip

Ever wonder what happens when pineapple and ice cream have a special night together?


Dole Whip - now this is one of those things that you either love or think what the h-e-double hockey sticks is all the fuss about? Well in our book this is a love. In fact I think Jason could eat his weight in Dole Whip if given the opportunity. Needless to say Dole Whip is Jason's favorite frozen treat at Walt Disney World, the State Fair and of course we had it at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii on our honeymoon. Whenever we go to the Magic Kingdom we have to get Dole Whip at least once if not twice. For those of you who are not Disney crazy such as myself you can find Dole Whip in the Magic Kingdom at the Aloha Island near the Tiki Room. It is also available at Captain Cook's in the Polynesian Resort (on the first floor past the lobby and to the left this is their quick service restaurant). Jason likes it anywhere you can get it however he would tell you that it's self serve at Captain Cook's meaning you can tower the Dole Whip goodness high above the dish they give you. However much to his disappointment they don't allow free refills.

In my opinion one of the great things about Dole Whip (besides being super tasty) is that it's a dairy free dessert. Not that I won't/can't eat dairy but I am trying to cut down on it. So when I went out to the googles looking for a recipe for Dole Whip most of what I found had either Cool Whip (not good eats in my book) or heavy cream in it. Now a recipe with heavy cream in it although I'm sure is super tasty would not fall into my "healthy" dessert category. So with that in mind I set out to create a dairy-free homemade Dole Whip. Here are the results I think it turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself.

The Process

Step 1

Put all of the ingredients in a high speed blender (I have a Ninja) and blend until smooth. Scoop into bowls or if you want a swirl put into a baggie and snip off a corner creating a “pastry” bag that you can create a swirl with.
