Dole Whip Smoothie

A few weeks ago, I was standing in my kitchen and the only thing I wanted was Dole Whip. It was like nothing else in the world or in my refrigerator sounded good to me. Now, theoretically I could have gone to Dole and gotten my hands on some pretty easily, but — I knew there had to be a way to satisfy my craving with ingredients I already had on hand! I mean come on – how many tutorials have you seen on Pinterest that are something like “Make Your Own Dole Whip Just Like Disneyland!”

My issue is that every tutorial I saw required a banana of some sort. Now, I know this is going to sound odd to all of you reading, but unless it’s a banana bread, banana bar or banana muffin – I don’t want any parts of it. I don’t like banana flavor in my smoothies and especially not in my Dole Whip. I know – weird, but true. Give me pineapple only, thank you very much!Dole Whip Smoothie For One - Gluten and Dairy Free - Communikait

So I set out to create my own Dole Whip Smoothie that satisfied what I wanted and didn’t involve bananas, yet was still creamy and sweet. A tall order, I know. Dole Whip Smoothie For One - Gluten and Dairy Free - Communikait

Admittedly, I’m kind of patting myself on the back over here. I didn’t get a whip, definitely more of a smoothie, but it 100% checked the flavor box, so much so that I made another one later that night for Dane to try.

To recreate this for yourself, you will need:

2 cups of frozen pineapple chunks

1 cup coconut milk

1 tbsp. agave

splash lemon juice

splash pineapple juice

1. Place everything in your Vitamix and blend on the Frozen Desserts setting (if you have it) or medium-high.

2. Pour into a festive pineapple tumbler and enjoy 🙂

  • Yummy!!! I make a pineapple smoothie for the kids with coconut milk…and well…a banana. LOL!

    • Kait

      I don’t mind bananas in smoothies if the flavor is masked by like..a strong berry, but I really just don’t like that flavoring at all if I can taste. I’m so weird, because give me banana bread all day long!

  • I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS because I’m allergic to bananas!!

    • Kait

      Oh my gosh – no way! That is AWFUL! Does that mean you can’t eat acai bowls?!

  • This looks so yummy. I’m sort of obsessed with smoothies and I always use pineapple for anti-inflammatory properties so I’m definitely going to try this. Your pics are gorgeous btw.

  • This sounds SO GOOD. I always always always have to get some Dole Whip ice cream when I go to Disneyland. 🙂

  • Omg. This sounds amazing.

  • My son is going to LOVE the smoothie! I’m always looking for new ideas!

  • As you know, we grow white pineapple (*proud Hawaii farmer moment*), and we cut the fruit into spears, freeze them on a tray, and put them (and no other ingredients) through a Champion juicer. It comes out like soft serve yogurt, and you would swear there’s dairy in it…Nope! Nada! We learned about this from Sugarloaf Pineapple Farm on Kauai where the farmer gives out samples of this delectable, all-pineapple sensation at the Saturday farmers market at Kauai Community College. The samples alone drive their pineapple sales!

    I will be making this! I will eat anything that has pineapples, they are my favorite. Once again this will be something I enjoy solo as Kyle does not like pineapples ( I married an odd one lol).

  • Love this – it’s my favorite drinks at Disney. I’m so happy you came up with a good recipe for it!
