Cinco de Mayo

Post may contain affiliate links. How to Make Dole Whip

I have a new obsession! DOLE WHIP. You may have tried other recipes but I promise you, this one delivers.  My sister made it for a family get together and I was in LOVE with it. So creamy and fresh, I’ve begged her to make it again, and she finally just passed on her recipe. Of course I have to share with all of you because that’s just how I am.

Dole Whip
  • 1 quart (4 cups) Dole Pineapple Juice
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk if needed
  1. Pour the pineapple juice into a bowl and add sugar mixing until sugar has dissolved.
  2. Add in the cream and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Pour into your ice cream maker. If there is still room in the machine add the extra milk.
  4. Follow instructions for your ice cream maker for freezing.
  5. Once it is done, serve and ENJOY!
I first fell in love with Dole Whips at Disneyland, one of my favorite places. Sometimes you have to wait in line for a while to snag one of these tasty treat.  Well, now you can make it at home.

But if you’re thinking of booking a Disneyland vacation, check out Get Away Today. They always have the best deal and you can use promo code: CraftingChicks to save an extra $10. Then you can snag a Dole Whip there. dole-whip-recipe

Here are some cute printables I made for part of the table setting.  Below are napkin rings…just print, cut out attach the sides to make a ring…then slide through your napkin.

Also sharing cute Cupcake Topper circles (below).  I plan on making “Tres Leche” cupcakes…then adding the cute circle toppers with a striped paper straw:)
