Disney Dole Whip Recipe (Copycat Version):
1 Cup Cold Coconut Milk
12 Crushed Pineapple Frozen Ice Cubes
1 Frozen Banana
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
The very first thing you need to do is get the pineapple freezing! Open a can of crushed pineapple that has been canned in real pineapple juice. Scoop the crushed pineapple into the little sections of an ice cube tray. You will need about 12 pineapple ice cubes. Place the tray into the freezer and let the pineapple freeze completely. It will take about 5 hours.
Peel a ripe banana and place it into a plastic freezer bag before putting it in the freezer. You will want it to be nice and firm, so it should be ready to use in about 5 hours as well.
When your first two ingredients are frozen, you can start whipping up your treat. Put two cups of cold coconut milk into a blender. You will need a nice strong blender to make the Dole Whip smooth and creamy. A food processor will also work.
Add the 12 pineapple ice cubes and the frozen banana.
Blend them together. You may need to stop the blender a few times ands scrape the edges down. You want the Dole Whip to be smooth and all of the ingredients to be completely incorporated. Don't leave any lumps of frozen fruit bits.
Immediately scoop the icy treat into a serving dish and enjoy!
You can drizzle some coconut pineapple nectar over the top to create a Dole Whip Float. It adds a punch of flavor and will send you straight to Dole Whip heaven.
I hope you enjoy this Disney Dole Whip Recipe. If you are looking for the real thing, here is a little heads up on where to find them at the Disney Parks. Dole Whips are sold at Disneyland just outside the Enchanted Tiki Room at The Tiki Juice bar in Adventureland. You can purchase a Dole Whip at Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom. It is located in Adventureland next to the Magic Carpets of Aladdin. If you happen to be heading to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii, you can relax by the oceanside pool and enjoy a Dole Whip from the Lava Shack. I can't think of anything I'd rather do.
