Hands down – my absolute favorite Disneyland treat is the Dole Whip Float. I LOVE them! I honestly look forward most to this cold dessert more than any of the rides. And let me tell you – the float is the way to go. Skip the standard Dole Whip and go for the float. That tart pineapple juice next to pineapple soft serve is a match made in Disneyland heaven.
Blendtec To The Rescue
Creating a this copycat is a little easier than you may think. The Dole whip is dairy free – so no ice cream making is required. I turned to my trusty Blendtec to do the heavy lifting and I completed this recipe with only 4 ingredients! My kids and I literally devoured my food props as soon as I was done taking pictures.
Pineapple Pineapple Pineapple
Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. I love how sweet and juicy it is, and I love that extra kick that it brings to so many recipes. Pineapple is a staple at our house and my kids beg for me to cut it up after we pick one up at the grocery store. The Dole stand is located right outside of the Tikki Room at Disneyland. I actually enjoy going in Tikki Room and watching that cheesy production, but I more so enjoy the refreshments right outside.
As I said earlier, the float is my favorite. At a recent visit to Disneyland with Des we sampled both the Dole Whip soft serve and the float. After Des took a few bites of the soft serve she asked me to pour a little pineapple juice into her bowl. That’s how much better the float is than the regular.
