Creamy Strawberry Dole Whip

If you’ve been to Walt Disney World, there’s a good chance that you’ve come across the famous pineapple Dole Whip. We always have one when we’re there and my kids love that we can recreate the magic at home with our homemade Disney Dole Whip recipe. This version is a twist on the classic for all of you strawberry lovers out there!

Like the pineapple version, this strawberry Dole Whip has just 3 ingredients – pineapple juice, frozen strawberries, and vanilla ice cream. If I have some of my homemade vanilla ice cream stashed in the freezer, I’ll use that, but otherwise, the store-bought kind tastes wonderful too.

I love summer berry desserts as they’re so light and refreshing! This frosty strawberry treat is one of my favorites and it cools you off on a hot day. Take a trip to the Magic Kingdom right in your own home and try this recipe!

What is Dole Whip?

Back in the 80’s the Dole Food Company created this frozen treat that was soon sold exclusively by Disneyland. Dole was known for pineapples and the popular Dole pineapple juice, so the first flavor they created was, you guessed it, pineapple!

Its popularity really took off and people have created their versions at home in many different flavors. You won’t find dairy in the versions you get in the theme parks but for this recipe, I’m using ice cream to get a super creamy consistency. 

You can be enjoying this twist on the iconic treat made popular at the Disney parks in 5 minutes or less.

  • 4-6 ounces pineapple juice , I used Dole 100% juice

  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  • Pour the juice, strawberries and ice cream in a blender.
  • Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add more pineapple juice or frozen strawberries if needed to reach desired consistency.
  • Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

Notes

Tip: If you’d like to pipe your Dole Whip into your cup (like a soft serve), place the frozen drink in a large zip top bag. Freeze the bag for 5 minutes. Then cut off 1/2″ of the tip and pipe into a cup. You can also use a large star frosting tip.Variations: There are many ways to mix this Dole Whip up. You could use coconut milk or yogurt in place of the ice cream to make Dairy Free. You can also add in raspberries if you’d prefer. You could also add 1-2 Tablespoons of sugar if you’d like it even sweeter.Storage: Store leftovers in a covered container in the freezer until ready to serve. Allow to soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.
