What is the difference between this TikTok Viral Dole Whip recipe and the one at Disney?
Disney released its original recipe (copycat version) during COVID, and it includes combining the following:
- 1/2–3/4 cup pineapple juice (depending on how thick or thin you want it)
- 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 cup dairy-free vanilla ice cream
Essential Dos and Don’ts of the Making Homemade Dole Whip:
- Do use frozen pineapples: This ensures that your Dole Whip has that smooth, creamy consistency we all love. It’s what makes it an authentic pineapple whip!
- Do serve immediately: For optimal taste and texture, serve your homemade Dole Whip immediately after making it.
- Do experiment: Feel free to get creative and add other tropical fruits into your Dole Whip mix, such as mango or banana. Just make sure to keep the pineapple for that classic taste!
TIP: Try this recipe with other frozen fruits and create raspberry dole whip, banana dole whip, strawberry dole whip, and so much more! Pipe into the dish for the perfect summer dessert.
- Don’t over-blend: Over-blending your mixture can result in a more slushy texture, which can take away from the creaminess of the Dole Whip.
- Don’t use fresh pineapples or canned pineapple: As tempting as it might be, fresh pineapples won’t give your Dole Whip the right consistency. Always go for the frozen variety.
