Why you’ll love this

If you’ve never tried it before, Dole Whip is a popular fruity dessert that’s served like a soft-serve ice cream.

One of the reasons it’s become so popular is because it’s been sold in Disney parks for years!

You can grab one during your next trip to Disney World, or you can skip the long lines and make a homemade Dole Whip from the comfort of your own home using your Ninja Creami!

This Dole Whip copycat made in the Ninja Creami is perfectly sweet, so refreshing, and only uses 3 simple ingredients to create a creamy pineapple dessert.

It feels like a decadent soft-serve ice cream treat but it’s made with refreshing pineapple and even has 3 grams of fiber per serving.

This Ninja Creami pineapple Dole Whip is one of the most delicious desserts to make in the ice cream maker, especially on a hot summer day.

Ingredients

This is the best part! You only need three super simple ingredients to make this delicious frozen treat!

  1. Canned pineapple in juice: All you need is a can of pineapple that’s in 100% of it’s own juice just to make things easy. The canned pineapple chunks plus juice add the perfect amount of pineapple flavor. You can also use fresh pineapple chunks or frozen pineapple but you’ll likely need to add a bit more liquid. Note: You’ll need to separate the pineapple juice from the pineapple for recipe measurements.
  2. Coconut milk: I love to use coconut milk because it goes so well with pineapple, but you can also add regular milk if you prefer it to have a creamy texture closer to ice cream (plus, it will be higher protein). You can use any kind of coconut milk, full-fat coconut milk or the kind that you’ll find in the carton.
  3. Honey: I like to use just a little bit of honey or maple syrup to bring out the sweet flavors even more. If you want something with no added sugar, you can omit this.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine pineapple, pineapple juice, and milk. Blend on high until full blended. (You can also put your ingredients straight into the Ninja Creami pint container and use an immersion blender.)

  1. Remove from the freezer and place pint container in the outer bowl of the Ninja Creami, and then put the outer bowl lid on. Put the the bowl into the Ninja Creami machine. Press “sorbet” (the “lite ice cream” button will also work for this). After the first spin, it will likely still look crumbly.

  1. Press the re-spin button the two more times. If your sorbet looks too crumbly after the first re-spin, add a tiny splash of milk before the final re-spin (about a teaspoon).

Recipe FAQ

What to do if your final product is too crumbly

There are two ways to fix a crumbly final product in the Ninja Creami:

  1. Re-spin! Re-spinning helps to make the final product creamier. I find that lower fat recipes tend to require more re-spins. Luckily they’re quick!
  2. Add liquid. Adding a very small amount of liquid can make a huge difference in the creaminess of your Ninja Creami recipes. If you need to, add a very small splash of milk or juice before spinning again. Just be careful not to add too much!

Can I use fresh or frozen pineapple?

Any pineapple will work for this recipe. For frozen pineapple chunks, either let the pineapple thaw a bit before using it or use less pineapple and more liquid. If you use the same ratios with frozen, you will likely need to add a bit more liquid when spinning.

If you find that your Dole Whip is too crumbly after spinning, add a splash of liquid at a time before re-spinning as advised in the notes of the recipe card.

Do I have to blend the ingredients before freezing?

Yes, unfortunately you can’t stick whole fruit into the Creami machine- it won’t blend it. You can use whole fruit as a mix-in, but any fruit that you want blended needs to be blended first.

Variations

  • Omit the honey if you prefer a no added sugar treat.
  • Change up the flavor by adding lemon juice, lime juice or orange juice.
  • Use just 1 cup of pineapple and 1/2 cup of a sliced banana to make a banana pineapple version.
  • Add 1 cup of pineapple and 1/2 cup of cubed mango for a pineapple mango version.
  • Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of milk if you want a creamy ice cream version.
  • Instead of milk, use a vanilla protein shake for a high protein dole whip!
  • Use any non-dairy milk that you like. Oat milk, almond milk, cashew milk or soy milk would all work.
