Fact: Few things are as delicious as some refreshing Dole Whip at a Disney park on a hot day. Of course, Disney World isn't reopening until July 11, so we have to settle for homemade Dole Whip for now.
A while ago, Disney Parks released a recipe for a homemade version of Dole Whip that you can make pretty easily with just three ingredients. It seemed easy enough, so I decided to give it a try!
Here are the specific ingredients I used. I got fresh pineapple from the store and froze it because they didn't have frozen pineapple, and that might have turned out to be a mistake. More on that in a second.
Maybe it was because I ~attempted~ to halve the recipe and probably put in too much pineapple. Or maybe it was because the fresh pineapple was in chunks that were wayyyy too big (I should've cut them and THEN froze them). But this was really tough to blend! After lots of pulsing and scraping, I finally got a pretty good consistency, all things considered.
I don't have a piping bag, but I do love a swirl. So I tried cutting the corner of a freezer bag and using that to pipe out the mixture...
...Which resulted in this. Ahem. I'm not claiming to be an expert dessert maker here.
But appearance doesn't affect taste, so I gave it a try...and it was pretty good! It definitely would have benefited from better blending, as there were still some chunks and pineapple fibers in there.
So, would I make this again? With access to the right kind of pineapple to make it easier to work with, yes! The texture was a bit wrong, but that certainly didn't stop me from eating a whole bowl of it. If you're making this for kids who are picky about texture, you'll probably want to make sure you use small pieces of pineapple to get it nice and smooth. And if you're NOT making this for kids, maybe take the suggestion from this Instagram and add a little coconut rum.
