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.
