Celebrate Disney Dole Whip Day with one of these refreshing DIY recipes


Did you know that July 21 has been designated by Disney as Dole Whip Day? (That was new to us.) And whether or not you enjoyed this treat at a Disney park, you can make your own version of a Dole Whip using these do-it-yourself recipes straight from Dole them. themselves.

Since we’re looking at the history of the Dole Whip at Disney, we can’t help but revisit the history of this iconic treat. Thanks to the Disney Food Blog, we know that the Dole Whip was first introduced in 1986. That’s 10 years after the Dole Food Company actually sponsored the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland. After the Dole Whip’s debut, it has become an iconic treat for so many, in fact for some visitors it’s a big part of the park experience. And it’s a treat we still celebrate today, which is why we’re celebrating with Disney and The Dole Company with these incredible recipes.

However, if you’ve never tried one of these desserts, you might not know what it is. And that means you don’t really know how to tinker with it to begin with. So what is the Dole Whip?

Officially, a Dole Whip is simply a soft pineapple treat. But, we’re talking about Disney, and that means there are different versions you might find in the parks. According to the Disney Food Blog,

Although flavors and serving styles may vary, when people think of Dole Whip most conjure up an image of the pineapple candy served swirled in a cup or in a float with pineapple juice.

So how can we make our own versions of these treats at home? With some inspiration from the Dole Food Company itself.

First, let’s look at their DIY Dole Whip, a vegan take on the classic. Considering it only requires five ingredients, this might be one of the easiest creations of the bunch. So what do you need to whip up this refreshing treat?

In a blender, combine 1 cup ripe Dole pineapple that has been frozen and chopped, 1 ripe Dole banana that has been frozen and peeled, 2.5 teaspoons powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon lime juice (we prefer fresh lime juice) and half a cup of unsweetened coconut milk. Put everything in a blender for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mixture to a cup, then garnish with fresh pineapple and enjoy.

It really is that easy to make your own take on the classic.

But what if you want to take it to a whole new level of deliciousness? That’s where the Dark Chocolate Dole Whip comes in.

Just like with the first DIY recipe, this version of the Dole Whip calls for frozen fruit. However, for this one you need to have 2 already ripe Dole bananas, which have then been peeled and cut in thirds crosswise before freezing. And again you will need frozen and chopped pineapple, this recipe calls for 2 cups. Other ingredients you need include a quarter cup of dark chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, and this recipe calls for a cup of oat milk ( we used regular milk and enjoyed it). This recipe also has a blueberry or raspberry topping recommendation.

In order to bring this particular recipe together, you will need to add the bananas, pineapple, chocolate chips, sugar, and cocoa powder to a blender and puree over high heat. Once the mixture is homogeneous, add the milk little by little. Divide the whole mixture between four bowls and you can then garnish however you like, although they recommend raspberries and blueberries for that fresh punch. For us, we are also thinking of adding a few more chocolate chips.

The final DIY recipe is called the Dole Berry Banana Fro-Whip. And it is again a berry delight. Note also that this recipe makes six servings.

To make this one you need 2 frozen bananas, 1 cup chopped frozen pineapple, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup blackberries, 1/2 cup raspberries, 1.25 cups milk unsweetened coconut that has been refrigerated, 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar, and dark chocolate shavings (technically this is optional, as are chopped nuts).

In a blender, purée the blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, blackberries and bananas, along with the powdered sugar. Once everything is mixed, slowly add the coconut milk. Divide the mixture among four (or six) bowls and garnish with additional raspberries and if you opted for nuts or chocolate, garnish with those as well.

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Dole Whip Day than by creating one of these amazing treats. Even though we can’t be at Disney, we can bring the Disney to us. Or at least that’s what we’re going to tell ourselves.
