How to Make Dole Whip at Home!

Dole Whips have taken the (Walt Disney) World by storm! And because of the pineapple soft-serve’s popularity, it’s being dispensed in multiple parks, Disney Springs, resorts, and over on the west coast at Disneyland Resort! So nearly anywhere you go in the World (or Land!), there’s a Dole Whip waiting for you just around the corner.

But what do you do when you leave the sweet, sweet bubble of the Happiest Place on Earth? Why, make your own Dole Whip at home, that’s what! And we’ve got just what you need to make it happen!

Thanks to the makers of Dole Whip, there’s a mix that’ll get you the pineapple soft serve you crave in the time it takes your ice cream maker to churn!

Simply combine the dry Dole Whip mix with cold tap water, add it to your ice cream maker, and walk away! If you need an ice cream maker, give this one a look!

But if you don’t want to buy an ice cream maker or use the packaged mix, it’s super simple to make Dole Whip at home without the mix. First, you’ll need  the recipe provided by Dole!

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


  1. Combine pineapple juice, banana, and powdered sugar in a blender. Cover; blend until smooth, gradually adding coconut milk and scraping down sides if necessary. Serve immediately.

That’s it! It couldn’t be simpler. Here are the goods you’ll need:

1. The Juice

That classic pineapple flavor is easy to achieve with the right juice! Dole, naturally!

4. The Fun

 The best place to consume a Dole Whip is, we can all agree, Walt Disney World. But if you’re crafting a DW for yourself, you can make it almost as fun! Try these brightly-colored ice cube trays to match the theme of your event (or your mood!).
