What Is A Dole Whip Float?

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.  Dole Whip is a soft serve ice cream served at Disneyland.  It is flavored with Dole brand pineapple making it a cool and tropical treat.  It is served in a glass with pineapple juice making it a “float”.  At Disneyland, the dessert is made from a pineapple-flavored dry mix (dried pineapple juice and the key to all silky smooth soft serve: stabilizers) that’s combined with water and pumped out of a soft-serve machine. Here we are making it fresh, with no sneaky ingredients.

Ingredients for Dole Whip Float.

Tell Me How To Make It!

Pro Tip – I use a Blendtec blender when making this recipe.  A high powered blender is one kitchen gadget investment I completely recommend.  We use ours daily for various things.

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.

  1. Add pineapple juice to your blender jar.
  2. Pour in coconut milk, cream included.
  3. Add white sugar.
  4. Top with frozen pineapple chunks.
  5. Blend until smooth.  I use the ice cream setting on my Blendtec.
  6. Transfer to a piping bag or large zipper bag.  Freeze for 1 hour.
  7. Pipe into glasses and top with extra pineapple juice.

Is Dole Whip Healthy?

The original Dole Whip is only about 100 calories per serving, this version contains whole ingredients – fresh pineapple, coconut milk, and pineapple juice.  So the caloric value is a bit different, but in my opinion having this homemade version with real ingredients is better for your body.  I’ve included the complete nutritional value below.

  1. Oooh! Sounds wonderful! I bet it would be extra refreshing to start with a bit of perrier or other fizzy plain soda in the glass before piping the pineapple in! Might not be exactly the same as dland’s but would be delish just the same in this hot summer weather.

  2. 5 stars
    This looks so delicious, I’ve never tried the Disneyland version but can’t wait to try this in the summer!
