One of my favorite treats to eat in Hawaii (besides shave ice) is Dole Whip. You used to only be able to find it at the Dole Plantation on Oahu, but in the past few years, this yummy dessert has popped up all over the islands.

Of course, outside of Hawaii, you can find it at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

I love ordering loaded Dole Whip at Tropical Hideaways in Adventureland at Disneyland. The toppings change from time to time, but it usually features Pocky, fresh fruit, and shredded coconut.

But that got me thinking. I bet there are all kinds of yummy toppings that could be added to Dole Whip. I started thinking about the types of toppings available at soft-serve ice cream shops like Menchie’s.

Then, I started thinking about toppings at some of my favorite shave ice stands on Oahu and Maui.

One of the great things about Dole Whip is that it’s completely dairy-free. So, if you’ve been asking yourself, “Is Dole Whip vegan?” the answer is a resounding YES!

I’m lactose-intolerant, and I love not having to take a Lactaid pill when I enjoy Dole Whip.

So, I came up with this Vegan Dole Whip recipe that will transport you to Hawaii!

Dole Whip Pineapple Float Tips

While this Dole Whip mix is fairly easy to make, here are a few Dole Whip float tips to help you make it even more delicious!

  • For this homemade version, you will definitely want a high-powered blender to ensure everything comes together.
  • You can use frozen chunks of all the fruits, or you can use fresh. If you do use frozen pineapple chunks, make sure they don’t have freezer burn, along with all the other fruits.
  • While the original recipe calls for Dole Whip ice cream, this copycat recipe is completely dairy-free. It has all the flavors but is vegan and super delicious!
  • If you don’t have a piping bag but want it to have a swirl look in your cup, use a Ziploc bag and cut the edge.
  • If you don’t want to use canned coconut milk, you can also use almond milk, and it will still be dairy-free.
  • For another delicious dessert, try to make a strawberry Dole Whip! Simply replace the fresh pineapple with strawberries.
  • For more Dole pineapple recipes, try these pineapple popsicles or pineapple gummy bears.

Can you buy Dole Whip in stores?

Sort of. Dole released some frozen smoothies that come in pineapple banana flavors at local grocery stores. But they aren’t officially Dole Whip.

No, if fact, you can find it all across Hawaii. The best place to try it in Hawaii is at the Dole Plantation on Oahu.

Dole Whip doesn’t have any dairy in it, but it’s smooth and creamy, like soft serve ice cream. If you want Dole pineapple ice cream, I’ve got a tasty recipe that’s super easy to make!
