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.

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.
- Add pineapple juice to your blender jar.
- Pour in coconut milk, cream included.
- Add white sugar.
- Top with frozen pineapple chunks.
- Blend until smooth. I use the ice cream setting on my Blendtec.
- Transfer to a piping bag or large zipper bag. Freeze for 1 hour.
- 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.
