Quick Tips For Easy Dole Pineapple Whips

Pineapple Dole whips are super refreshing and will cool you and your family off on hot summer days, or can make the perfect evening finisher. Just like these other ice cream treats, Brownie Batter, Raspberry Cheesecake, and Ice Cream in a Bag, this will make your summer amazing!

  • Blend: The key to a smooth creamy pineapple whip is to have a great blender. One that is high powered and can handle the frozen fruit. If you feel like your blender can’t, don’t fret. Just cut the recipe in half and blend half at a time. Then put together to freeze. Also letting the pineapple thaw slightly will help it blend up easier.
  • Freeze: Placing it in the freezer allows it to firm up to a good consisentcy. This step can be skipped if you like your consistency and just can’t wait to sip it. I don’t blame you for not waiting either.

Variations to Your Pineapple Dole Whips

Pineapple Dole Whips are a favorite but if you don’t love pineapple you can change it out for a different fruit. The basic recipe would stay the same. Adjust the juice to fit the fruit you choose.

  • Fruit: If you want to mix the pineapple with other fruit or exchange it for a different fruit, the sky is the limit on flavors. Try frozen bananas, peaches, strawberries, raspberries and mangos.
  • Sugar: Feel free to use less sugar if you want more of a tart flavor or add more for more sweetness. You can also switch it out for a sugar subsitute of choice, such as stevia for lower carbs.
  • Ice Cream: Vanilla is the perfect mild flavor to compliment pineapple, but you can substitute out for frozen yogurt, sherbert, or even frozen bananas. The frozen bananas are a great non-dairy alternative, although it will change the flavor a bit.

  1. been getting these at Disney for years and I LOVE them. I usually get at least 2 a day! So will def. be trying this, thanks!

  2. How soon after making this recipe, must it be served? Is it ok to make it two days before serving? Want to serve this at Thanksgiving to our relatives, but I am hoping to do the prep work ahead of time.
    Thanks for your reply.

    1. It depends. You get the soft serve whipped ice cream if eaten as soon as you make them. If you let them freeze overnight the ice cream will be quite hard.
