We asked, they answered: After sharing a churro recipe inspired by its popular theme park treat, Disney upped the ante and dropped a how-to for an even more beloved dessert: Dole Whip.
On Wednesday, the Disney Parks app featured a series of illustrations in an Instagram-esque story explaining just how easy it is to whip (heh) up a homemade version of the refreshing soft-serve treat—they call it “Frozen Pineapple Treat,” since technically, Dole invented the official Dole Whip—sans mile-long lines or testy parents and their children. All you need are a blender, a star-tipped piping bag and three ingredients.
4 ounces pineapple juice
2 cups frozen cubed pineapple
1 large scoop vanilla ice cream
Step One: In a blender, combine the pineapple juice, frozen pineapple and ice cream and blend until smooth.
Step Two: Transfer the Dole Whip to a star-tipped pastry bag and swirl it into a bowl. Grab a spoon. Eat.
If we had known it was that easy to recreate, we might’ve thought twice about braving those infamous Disney lines. (We kid.) And while it’s not exactly the same as spending the day at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom's Adventureland (where the original Dole Whip is found), it still hits the spot and might tide us over until the next time we can plan a trip to the Magic Kingdom. All we can really say is that Disney knows how to give the people what they want.
Now taking bets on what Disney will share with us next…beignets, perhaps?
