There are few theme park snacks as iconic as Disney’s Dole Whip. Since it was introduced to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts in 1986, the pineapple soft serve has achieved a beloved status among the rankings of other cult-favorites like Mickey pretzels and churros. Now, with the recently-released Disney Dole Whip recipe, you can experience this refreshing treat whenever you want.

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a tangy Dole Whip on a hot, humid day in the parks. You can find the treat served on its own, swirled with vanilla ice cream, or as a float with pineapple juice — each option is refreshing, tropical, and delicious. Dole Whips are available at snack stands in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park and at a few select locations throughout the resorts, unlike other popular Disney snacks that you can find ubiquitously throughout the parks.

Even though the Disney theme parks are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can bring the theme park magic home by making your own Dole Whips. Disney released the “frozen pineapple treat” recipe on the My Disney Experience App this month — and it’s surprisingly simple, with just 3 ingredients.

Disney Dole Whip Recipe

Dole Whip Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • 4 ounces of pineapple juice
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple

How to Make a Dole Whip:

Add all 3 ingredients to a blender, and blend it until it’s smooth. You can serve it as-is, but Disney suggests putting the blended mixture into a piping bag and piping a swirl into your bowl for the soft-serve look. Top with a cocktail umbrella for an extra tropical touch.
