What is a Dole Whip?
Dole Whip is a soft serve dessert that was originally served only in Hawaii at Dole and at Disney. It is a pineapple based treat that is not only delicious but people flipped for because it is dairy free too! Now you can find Dole Whip more places and it comes in other flavors. The original Pineapple Dole Whip is still a favorite!
Vegan and Healthful Ingredients
I love these Dole Whip Popsicles because they are literally just coconut milk and pineapple. That makes them vegan, and rather healthy. Of course, you could add extra sweetener but I always find the pineapple to be sweet enough to make these popsicles a yummy treat.
- There are many popsicle molds out there but my favorite is this Norpro Popsicle Mold. I have had it for years, and it is by far the best I have found.
- The popsicles do best when frozen overnight, but if you are in a hurry you can start to test them after about 4 hours if you used frozen fruit.
- When in doubt, freeze a little more. There is nothing worse than pulling on a popsicle stick to remove it from the mold and having the entire thing break. Don't rush your popsicles.
Dole Whip Popsicles

- Pour into popsicle mold and insert sticks. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Enjoy.
