Disney’s Dole Whip recipe is easy to make at home

Of all the foods unique to Disney’s theme park system, Dole Whip is arguably the most iconic. Although customers line up to buy it when they visit Disney World and Disneyland, the frozen pineapple treat is surprisingly basic. It’s so simple, in fact, that anyone can make it at home with just three ingredients.

According to Insider, Disney Parks in 2020 released a recipe inspired by its famous Dole Whip on the My Disney Experience app. and some special equipment.

After gathering your components, add them to a blender and puree until smooth. You can pour the mixture into a bowl and dig in at this point, but to recreate the Disney candy look, you’ll need a piping bag. Cut slits in the end of the bag to make a star pattern and use it to pour the frozen concoction into a serving container, swirling as you go. If you don’t have a piping bag handy, cut a star-shaped opening out of parchment paper or a plastic sandwich bag.

Although the recipe requires a bit of cleanup, it’ll be ready in less time than it takes to queue outside the enchanted Tiki room. The homemade version of Dole Whip is also significantly cheaper than what you’ll find at theme parks. We recommend eating it while carrying a fanny pack and listening to Pirates of the Caribbean Queue music to get the full Disney experience.
