How can YOU create this tasty island treat at home?
I remember experiencing my first Dole Whip. It was at Disneyland outside the Tiki Room in Adventureland. Here, you could enjoy a fresh pineapple spear or a Dole Whip, complete with whipping cream and a maraschino cherry on top, while you waited for the show to begin. And although this was many years ago, I am still so obsessed with Dole Whips that I have tried to order a t-shirt that says, “I Love Dole Whips” on it. Apparently, a lot of other people like them too because this shirt is always unavailable!
Years ago, Disneyland in Anaheim was the only place you could enjoy this refreshing treat. Now, there are still very few places to experience a real Dole Whip. You can find them at Disneyland, Disney’s Polynesian Resort, and Aloha Isle in Disneyworld. At Disneyworld, the park even offers them in traditional pineapple, orange, vanilla, or even swirled! And one restaurant outside of the Disney Park, The Local Place, in Los Angeles, apparently has them, too!
If you haven’t had a chance to experience one of these frozen concoctions, you might be wondering what it is and why everyone is so crazy over them. A Dole Whip is a non-dairy soft serve frozen dessert. It is made from pineapple puree and water. And although it is available in different flavors now, pineapple is still the most popular.
If you don’t have the opportunity to visit one of the Disney Parks, why not create a Dole Whip at home? It is fun and easy and so refreshing on a hot day. Kids and adults alike love its creamy and rich texture and you won’t hear a single complaint, we promise!
