I Made DIY Dole Whip From the AllEars Disney Recipe Catalog!

Hi, AllEars readers! If you would like to read more information regarding the temporary closures at the Disney Parks, please click here for a list of closures at the Disney Parks, or click here for some of our most FAQs. From all of us at AllEars, our thoughts are with those affected. While the Disney Parks are closed, we will continue to write articles and bring you AllEars TV videos to enjoy and for our readers to use once the parks reopen. 
With park closures, community curfews, and social distancing effecting our every day lives, many of us are spending a LOT more time at home these days.
Is Mickey hiding out here?

A lot of us are doing our best to fill the days and get our Disney fixes with Disney Celeb Live Feeds, creative crafts, Disney videos and of course, DISNEY FOOD!

I myself was itching for a Disney treat so I decided to make one from our HUGE catalog of Disney recipes! I’m excited to share the recipe — and the results!

Molly Makes a DIY Dole Whip

I decided to make Dole Whip for a few reasons: it’s iconic, it’s (kinda?) healthy, and it’s EASY. In fact it’s only FOUR ingredients. Considering I’m not the best chef, I figured I should start easy.

Dole Whip Ingredients

The recipe (which originated on the Dole website) calls for:

  • 1 cup pineapple juice FROZEN in an Ice cube tray
  • 1 banana, peeled and diced — also FROZEN
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
Pineapple Juice

TIP: I didn’t have an ice cube tray, so I poured my pineapple juice in a Ziploc. I laid it flat in the freezer so it basically make a sheet. The point is to be easy for the blender to mix up — and the Ziploc bag trick worked!

Dicing the Banana

Also, make sure the banana is diced up before frozen so it can also be easily blended. (I initially just froze a whole banana and realized too late my mistake. I told you I am not great at this.)

Blender Time!

Once everything is frozen, it’s time to blend it! Add in the banana, pineapple juice chunks, powdered sugar, and coconut milk. I started with 1/4 cup so I could add if needed. You can always add more — but you can’t take away!

Turns out, I needed more coconut milk! It wasn’t blending super smoothly. I may have gone overboard because it ended up being more like a smoothie, not a Dole Whip.

Ta-DA!

But hey! I made this! WITH MY OWN TWO HANDS. (And a blender.) I feel so accomplished.

(I want to point out that I realize I sound like a pathetic human being who can’t cook. I can handle the basics pretty well — tacos, pasta, anything in my air fryer. I am a functional adult…who loves Buzz Lightyear and is scared of Ursula. But I digress.)

Taste Test!

So how did it taste?!

NOT BAD!! Truthfully it was actually pretty good — it just didn’t exactly taste like a Dole Whip. (Which, TBH, I didn’t think it would ever taste as good as a REAL Dole Whip. Part of that joy comes from being in the Magic Kingdom.)

If I were to make it again, I would go less heavy on the coconut milk, and heavier on the pineapple juice. I think that will help make it more authentic.

But, the moral of the story is, I had FUN! I tried something new — and I will definitely do it again. I’m thinking a PB&J Milkshake from 50’s Prime Time Cafe is next. (PSST – make sure to follow AllEars on Instagram! I shared my cooking adventure there today!)

Now we challenge YOU to cook something from the Disney Recipe Catalog! Find your favorite — and hit the kitchen! We promise it’ll be fun — and tasty!! Plus, what a fun activity for the family to do together! Seriously, there’s no downside.

  1. Thanks Molly, looks like a fun thing to do. We just returned from Disneyworld to Australia after the parks closed. Will do this fun activity once we are out of isolation!
