Want to know something funny? I never had a Dole Whip until about 2 years ago! I’d heard about them sure, and I’d always longed to try one, but the lines were always so long. Now that Disney offers mobile ordering, it’s much easier to get one when you’re in the parks!

But…what if you’re not in Disneyland and you still want your favorite Dole Whip Float? Or you want to make a boozy version? Well, that’s when Disney copycat recipes come in – and this one is straight from the source.

Recently Disney released their official Dole Whip Recipe so I had to share it with you – with my own favorite modifications.

I prefer Dole Whip Floats to the soft serve variety, especially when I make them at home because I can add RUM!

I’m showing you how to make a Dole Whip THREE different ways in this post!

What is in a Dole Whip?

I’ve never known for sure what was in a Dole Whip but I’ve always had my suspicions. Obviously, pineapple would be a main ingredient, but what else?

Now we know the secrets! Here is what you need to make the basic Dole Whip Recipe:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Frozen Pineapple
  • Pineapple Juice

I highly recommend using a high quality vanilla ice cream and Dole pineapple juice. I know they sell pineapple juice in plastic bottles but it’s not the same. I always have a 6-pack of those 6 ounce cans of Dole in my pantry for cocktails and Dole Whip emergencies.

How do you make this copycat?

The regular Dole Whip is soft serve pineapple ice cream, and for that you need a blender (or you can use a food processor).

To make it, just add all your ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.

You can just scoop it into a glass, but if you want the tell-tale soft serve Dole Whip “look” then you need a piping bag and a star (1M) tip to get that swirl.

Dole Whip Float

My favorite way to order this at Disneyland is to get a float. I just like the combination of juice and ice cream (like a root beer float).

To make a Dole Whip Float at home, you just add your soft serve to a tall glass and pour the rest of your pineapple juice over it, like you’re making a float. I also love topping it with a cherry!

Boozy Version

Making these at home means that you can add booze! You can’t get a Boozy Dole Whip in Disneyland, so I have to make mine at home.

To add booze, just add a shot of rum when you’re blending your cocktail, like when you make a Pina Colada. Done!
