DIY: Dole Pineapple Whip Float

We're in the middle of winter and I still can't get enough of Disneyland's Dole Pineapple Whip Float and the Tiki Bar.  I can't believe I only just discovered this last year and now every single time I visit DL with my annual pass, I have to get one... even if the line is 30 mins long!  But if I happen to no longer have a pass one day, I now know how to make this creamy pineapple delight in my own home.

We found the Dole Pineapple Soft Serve MIX online, which comes in the form of a non-dairy powder.  This mix is for a soft serve ice cream maker... which I don't have.  But I do have a Cuisinart ice cream maker that did just as well.  The directions on the mix say to use water, and maybe that's all you need when using a soft serve ice cream maker but I tried this with mine and the soft serve tasted more like sorbet instead of the real deal.  So then we tried using just milk.  Nope.  Still not the same.  Third time's the charm.  Use half and half!  This tasted almost identical to Dole's Pineapple Whip.

To make the float: so, once your ice cream is done, fill a glass half up with pineapple juice and top with the ice cream.  Stick a cherry on top and get ready for pure pineapple sunshine happiness!


  1. I am OBSESSED with these! I wish I had an ice cream maker so I could make them myself! I too no longer have a d-land pass :( sad.
