Dole Pineapple Whip

Dole Pineapple Whip is a popular, refreshing treat known for its creamy texture and tropical pineapple flavor. It’s famously associated with theme parks and tropical destinations, where it’s often served as a cool, sweet respite on warm days. This delightful dessert is essentially a soft, pineapple-flavored frozen treat that’s both dairy-free and vegan, making it a popular choice for a wide range of dessert lovers.

The primary ingredient in Dole Pineapple Whip is pineapple, typically used in the form of pineapple juice and frozen pineapple. The pineapple provides the dominant flavor – sweet, tangy, and distinctly tropical. Some recipes might use canned pineapple in juice for added sweetness and convenience.

The creamy, smooth texture of the whip is achieved without the use of dairy. Instead, the recipe often calls for a frozen banana, which, when blended, provides a creamy consistency similar to that of ice cream or soft serve. The banana also adds natural sweetness and a smooth body to the whip.

For an even more pronounced pineapple flavor, some recipes include a bit of lemon or lime juice. This acidity balances the sweetness of the pineapple and enhances its zesty, tropical taste.

To prepare Dole Pineapple Whip, the frozen pineapple, banana, and pineapple juice (and lemon or lime juice, if used) are blended together until smooth. The key is to achieve a consistency that is thick and creamy, similar to soft-serve ice cream. This can be done using a blender or food processor, and the mixture may need to be scraped down a few times to ensure everything is evenly blended.

Once blended, the whip can be served immediately for a softer texture or frozen for a bit to achieve a firmer, more ice cream-like consistency. It’s often piped into cups or cones using a star-tipped piping bag, creating an attractive swirl that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.

Dole Pineapple Whip is celebrated for its light and refreshing flavor, making it an ideal dessert for hot days, as a palate cleanser after a meal, or simply as a tasty treat that’s a little lighter than traditional ice cream. Its dairy-free and vegan-friendly nature also makes it a great choice for those with dietary restrictions or preferences. The combination of sweet, tangy pineapple with the smooth, creamy texture makes it a beloved dessert for all ages.

How To Make Dole Pineapple Whip

  • Add the Ingredients – In a high-speed blender, add the pineapple juice, frozen pineapple, and ice cream.
  • Blend – Cover and process on medium speed for about 1 ½ to 2 ½ minutes, until thick and smooth. If needed, add more pineapple juice, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • To Serve – Immediately scoop and add to a cup or bowl. Alternatively, transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Close the end of the bag and freeze for about 30 minutes to firm up but not harden. Trim off the end of the bag and pipe it into the desired serving dish.


  • Recipe Yield: About 2 cups
