Dole Whip Review

“It’s only three ingredients, how can you mess it up?” Asked my sister as we prepared the recipe that would ideally be simple and easy.

The Disney Dole Whip is a soft-serve pineapple ice cream sold at the parks for a cool treat on a hot day. Many even say that it is one of the best snacks served in the parks altogether. Disney recently released many of their recipes to keep the community busy during social distancing such as their churro recipe. I will be reviewing the Dole Whip recipe by the quality of directions, time, and taste.

The directions given for the Dole Whip recipe were slightly vague. They give you the amount of each ingredient that you need with specific measurements, but the instructions for blending the ice cream were vague and misleading. 

Although the directions can be figured out mostly on your own, it is vague to those who haven’t had Dole Whip before. “A thick drink” is not quite the consistency Dole Whip should be at. The whip is more the consistency of soft-serve ice cream.

Based on time, this recipe is super easy and convenient. It took just about fifteen minutes to complete. The ingredients were easily accessible ingredients that you could find in your house. All you need is vanilla ice cream, pineapple juice, and frozen pineapples. 

After the Dole Whip was complete, it was time for the true test. Does it taste like the whip most Dole Whip fans love? Although it tasted delicious and creamy, something about it wasn’t right. The consistency was too watery and not thick enough, but it had the authentic pineapple flavor that I’ve grown to love. 

This recipe was definitely worth my time. In the end, it was quite simple and easy, just as expected. Although it wasn’t the ideal texture and flavor, my taste buds were delighted and taken on an adventure to Disney World. It takes little time and just enough effort to make it worthwhile.
