How you doin’? Dole Whip is a pineapple-flavored soft-serve treat that has been served at Disney theme parks for years. It was originally created by Dole nearly 40 years ago and became available at Disneyland’s Tiki Bar in 1986. It’s now served at a few different locations in the park and all across the country. If you ask most people, it’s pretty synonymous with Disneyland. Park visitors to Disneyland will wait in a long line just to get one on a hot day.
There are only a few ingredients needed to make Pineapple Dole Whip—pineapple juice, frozen pineapple chunks, vanilla ice cream, lemon juice, and a touch of sugar (depending how sweet the pineapple chunks are).
This at-home version uses real ingredients and is as close to the authentic flavor as you’ll get! But this one is the adult Goofy-style version and isn’t kid-friendly. There is one more ingredient that flavors it up for grown-ups—RUM.
You’ll find that this is the best all-American warm weather cocktail. This version is not available to purchase in the parks, but I can tell you there was more than one of us who worked at the park that didn’t have a flask of rum in their locked desk drawer.
2 large cups frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 cup vanilla ice cream (I prefer the texture of Ben & Jerry’s)
1-1/2 ounce of dark rum
Directions (it couldn’t be easier)
ChefSecret: Since frozen pineapple can be hard to pulse, you will need a pretty powerful blender--like a Vitamix! Ninja or Blendtec--for best results. If you have a regular blender, let the pineapple thaw out slightly. Not a pineapple lover? You can make it with pretty much any frozen fruit and its accompanying fruit juice, like strawberry, lemon, orange, raspberry or mango.
Quip of the Day: Q. Why did Goofy wear two pairs of pants when he played golf? A. He heard he might get a hole in one!
