Disney's pineapple Dole Whip recipe

One of my top priorities when I was in Disney was to get a Dole Whip.  I had heard so much about them and was told it was a not to miss treat while I was there.  So one night in Magic Kingdom, my family made the trek across the park to get me one.  I ended up ordering the vanilla pineapple.  The rest of my family all ordered different ones, and then we all indulged.  If you've had a Dole Whip, then you know how amazing they are.  Even though the signs say it is dairy free, it is creamy, fruity, so yummy.  It is a tropical treat.  If you've never had a Dole Whip, then you are missing out.  But you also came to the right place.  Disney has shared their Dole Whip recipe with me, and now I'm going to share it with you all. 

What is a Dole Whip?  It is a  frozen pineapple or orange treat.  Almost a sorbet, but soft serve.  You can get either flavor, mix the two together, or you can mix either one with vanilla for an ice cream like treat.  Official Dole Whips are sold in the Magic Kingdom, at Aloha Isle, and at the Polynesian resort (in a self serve Dole Whip machine!) but other parks have knock offs.  We did also indulge in a knock off Dole Whip made with coconut rum while in Epcot.  It was almost as good as the one in Magic Kingdom, but a bit too strong for me since I don't drink.  It was yummy, though. 

If you don't remember, a while back Disney sent me a suitcase full of goodies, including tee shirts, Craisins, measuring cups, bingo cards and recipes.  One of those recipes was for the famous pineapple Dole Whip.  So thank you, Disney, for sharing.  My family has been having a blast making our own Dole Whips at home.  Last week we rented "Saving Mr Banks" from Redbox and we made our own homemade Dole Whips to go along with our Disney movie night.  For what it's worth, "Saving Mr Banks" is a terrific movie.  I definitely recommend it.  So if you're looking for a fun Disney family night, grab "Saving Mr Banks" or another Disney favorite, and make a Dole Whip.  Your family will thank you. 

Ingredients:

4 cups frozen pineapple
1/2 cup milk ( i used coconut milk)
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice


 
 I tossed everything in my Ninja blender (but you could probably use a YoNana machine, or another type blender) and whipped it all together until fully blended. I then put it in a storage bag, froze it for an hour, and then divided it into 5 cups for my family of 5 and ate it all up. 

 
My family loved them and this is a treat that we will definitely be making over and over again.
