Creamy Strawberry Dole Whip Recipe

Ah, summer! That wonderful season when the sun kisses your skin, and the days stretch long and lazy. What better way to complement these glorious days than with a treat that’s both refreshing and heartwarmingly delicious? And today, my dear readers, I’m overjoyed to share a recipe that’s not only a personal favorite but also a crowd-pleaser—Creamy Strawberry Dole Whip!

From the very first time I tasted the magical concoction at a renowned theme park, I knew I had to recreate it at home. But with a twist! I promised you versatile, and here’s proof! By blending the tropical allure of pineapple with the sweet charm of strawberries, this recipe promises a delightful escape in every spoonful.


Creating this Creamy Strawberry Dole Whip is as easy as gathering a few quality ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Pineapple Juice: 4-6 ounces (preferably 100% juice)
  • Frozen Strawberries: 2 cups (9 ounces)
  • Vanilla Ice Cream: ½ cup

How to Make Creamy Strawberry Dole Whip

  1. Blend Ingredients: In a blender, combine the frozen strawberries, pineapple juice, and vanilla ice cream. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  2. Check Consistency: If the mixture is too thick, add a bit more pineapple juice and blend again. It should be thick yet pourable—think soft-serve consistency!
  3. Serve Immediately: Pour the mixture into bowls or glasses, and serve immediately for the best texture and flavor.
  4. Optional Garnish: Top with a sprig of mint or a few slices of fresh strawberries for that extra touch of summer!

Helpful Tips

  • Chill Your Glasses: Before serving, chill your glasses in the freezer for about 15 minutes. This small step helps keep your Dole Whip perfectly chilled as you enjoy it.
  • Smooth Blending: To ensure a smooth consistency, make sure to blend thoroughly. Pause occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender.


  • Dairy-Free Version: Easily make this Dole Whip dairy-free by substituting vanilla ice cream with a coconut milk or almond milk-based ice cream.
  • Berry Bliss: Feel free to experiment with different berries. Blueberries or raspberries can add a lovely twist to the traditional recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this ahead of time? It’s best served immediately, but you can freeze it for up to an hour before serving if needed.

What if I don’t have vanilla ice cream? You can use coconut cream or banana for a healthier version, but keep in mind it will alter the flavor slightly.

Storage Instructions

Store any leftover Dole Whip in an airtight container in the freezer. It’s best enjoyed within a day or two as it will harden significantly if left longer.
