Ingredients for Dole Whip

You’re just 4 ingredients away from this deliciously creamy and flavorful Dole Whip! You’ll need:

  • Frozen pineapple: Feel free to buy bagged frozen pineapple from the grocery store, or freeze your own fresh pineapple in chunks at home. Just make sure your pineapple chunks are COMPLETELY frozen before starting this Dole Whip.
  • Full fat coconut milk: Full fat coconut milk is crucial to the creaminess and texture of this Dole Whip! Don’t use low fat coconut milk or you risk runny Dole Whip with a less creamy flavor.
  • Vanilla extract: A little goes a long way!
  • Honey: Our recipe calls for 2 tablespoons, but feel free add more if you like a sweeter Dole Whip 😀

How to Make Dole Whip

Blend Pineapple + Coconut Milk

Place the frozen pineapple and 1/2 cup of coconut milk in a food processor and blend on high until smooth and creamy. If the Dole Whip isn’t blending, add 1-2 tablespoons more of coconut milk at a time until it’s creamy.

Add Vanilla + Honey

Add the vanilla extract and honey into the food processor and blend again until combined and smooth. 

Freeze dole whip

When all of the ingredients are smooth and creamy, spoon the dole whip into a piping bag or large gallon sized bag. Seal the bag and place it in the freezer for 20 minutes. 

Pipe Dole Whip

Pipe the dole whip using your favorite tip into a bowl or cone, and top with your favorite toppings 😀 ENJOY!

How to Freeze Pineapple

Simply cut the pineapple evenly into chunks, and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Place the entire sheet in the freezer for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight to ensure your pineapple is completely frozen.

When you take your pineapple out of the freezer, you’ll just need to scrape them off the parchment paper and place right in the blender (if you’re making this Dole Whip right away), or into a Ziploc or Stasher bag to keep in the freezer for later use.

Freezing the chunked pineapple on a baking sheet will prevent your pineapple from sticking together when you place it in a bag.
