3-Ingredient Dole Whip Recipe

If you've ever been to Aloha Isle in Disney World
or Tiki Juice Bar in Disneyland then I'm sure
you know all about the Dole Whip.
It's the ultimate in Disney desserts with
its refreshing pineapple taste and creamy texture.
Now you can enjoy this cool treat anytime you like
with the easy 3-ingredient recipe shown below.

3-Ingredient Dole Whip
*makes 6 cups


3 cups pineapple sherbet, softened
1 (8 ounce) tub Cool Whip or other non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
4 tablespoons pineapple juice, chilled

8-10 drops yellow food coloring


Place 3 cups of the softened pineapple sherbet into a blender. Scoop the entire contents of the tub of whipped topping into the blender. Add the pineapple juice. You can add the food coloring if you like but it is not necessary. Blend on high for 1 minute. Turn off and remove from motor. The whipped topping will remain on top so take a long utensil and fold it into the sherbet on bottom. Now replace the lid and blend again for another minute. Remove and mix by hand one last time. The mixture should now look like a yellowish milk shake.

Take a gallon-size freezer bag and place it into a large cup or bowl. Fold back the edges so you have a wide mouth to pour into. Begin pouring the Dole Whip into the freezer bag, making sure to scrape the sides of the blender. Seal the bag and place in freezer for 2 1/2 - 3 hours until firm but not solid. It should have a soft-serve texture. Remove from freezer and snip off 1 1/2-inch from one of the bottom corners of the bag creating an opening to squeeze out the Dole Whip. Twist the top portion of the bag like it was a cake icing bag and begin squeezing the Dole Whip into your serving cup or dish. Just like soft-serve, right?

If you'd like to turn it into a Dole Whip Float, simply add some of the chilled pineapple juice to your cup of Dole Whip. Serve with a spoon or straw and a tiny umbrella. Now dig in!

*Tip: If you freeze the Dole Whip for longer than 3 hours it will become solid, to return it to the soft-serve stage simply thaw it on your counter for a bit just like you would for a tub of Cool Whip.

  1. Thank you!!! We just returned from Disneyland the lines for a Dole Whip were so long every single day that I never got one. Cannot wait to make this!!!

    1. You're very welcome! I just came back from WDW and had one, but I'm already craving another. I'm going to have to make some too. :D

  2. thanks we made this for a luau the Boy Scouts threw. and Everyone loved it!!! tastes very close to the real thing from Disneyland!!

    1. So glad to hear they were a hit! You're very welcome! :)

  3. This was a NIGHTMARE to mix, and I chose to add orange gel food coloring instead of yellow (no biggie). I should have made a double-batch for the 3 of us but I didn't have enough room. It's still in the freezer, it smells yummy and I'm not a huge fan of pineapple, but my kids are looking forward to trying it! I got really excited when I realized I could substitute peach instead of pineapple lol, peach is my summer craving! I'm gonna try that next. I took someone's advice and put the whip in first, and it WOULD NOT mix, I ended up letting it all melt and whisking by hand. Then I poured it into a bowl and back into the blender a little at a time and it finally mixed together. *sigh* lesson learned

  4. FYI: You need to turn the music down it is very distracting (overrides what you are saying) and to me very irritating?

  5. Great! Looks easy enough! Can't wait to try it!

  6. Where can one find pineapple sherbet?

  7. Cool! This looks really yummy! I was going to make it for someone luau party but unfortunately we couldn't find the time I'm the day to make it.. I am definitely going to try it one day though!!!

  8. You can find pineapple sherbet at Walmart, of all places! I had a couple of Dole Pineapple Whip floats each day of our Disneyland trip this past Christmas and I can't wait to try this! I've got everything but the juice, but I'm throwing in the juicy pineapple chunks left over from a wedding open house this past weekend.
