Disney Dole Whip Recipe - A Healthy and Delicious Alternative for this Special Disneyland Treat
I love Disney! I love desserts! And of course, I love getting an ice-cold Dole Whip when I visit the theme park. Unfortunately, I don't live near Anaheim anymore and it isn't easy to run over and satisfy my craving.
There are many ways to make one at home, but most are filled with sugar, heavy cream, or preservatives. Delicious? Yes! Healthy? Not-so-much!
There is an easy way to make a healthy version of the famous Dole Whip recipe at home. It is a treat that you would be proud to serve your kids! I make these on some afternoons for my son as a healthy snack when he gets home from school.
Please tell me about your experience making these. Drop some comments below and let me know how your family liked it!
Time to Serve
- 3/4 cup Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
- 1 3/4 cups Frozen Pineapple Chunks
Three Simple Steps
- Add frozen pineapple chunks and low-fat yogurt to a blender
- Blend until smooth
- Serve immediately
I make enough smoothies that I asked for a Vitamix for my birthday. It has made all the difference in the world. It chops through the frozen fruit in no time, and I never have to worry about breaking it. That machine is built solid!
If you haven't seen one, take a look. They are worth every penny!
I like to change up the recipe a bit and add frozen peaches, strawberries, cherries, oranges, bananas or mangos into the mix. They all taste delicious!
Most of the time, I look for the inexpensive frozen mixed tropical fruits at Target or the grocery store. I found Target has the best prices when I can find them in stock.
While you do not have to have the fruits prefrozen, I prefer it that way. By the time the blender does its magic, the treat is at the wonderful soft-serve consistency. If you decide to use fresh fruits, then you will need to add a cup or two of ice. Alternatively, you can take the mixture and freeze it, but it will lose that soft-serve texture. (It still tastes great though!)
But, Where can I find the Original?
If you absolutely, positively must have the original Dole Whip, then you need to travel. There are a few locations that serve it.
1. Next to the Tiki Room in Disneyland in Anaheim, CA
2. In Aloha Isle and Captain Cook's in Disneyworld in Orlando, CA
3. At the Dole Plantation in Hawaii
4. Sometimes at the Minnesota State Fair
