For the first time ever, Disney is releasing recipes for some of its most beloved treats.
With both Florida’s Disney World and California’s Disneyland closed for the foreseeable future, park-goers have been denied their vacations — and all of the delicious foods exclusive to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom.
To help get fanatics through these hard times, Disney has now unveiled its recipes for Dole Whip and Churro Bites so families can make them at home.
Voila! Disney has released a recipe for its beloved Dole Whip now that fans can’t order it at Disney parks
Fave: The pineapple ice cream treat is one of Disney fans’ favorite offerings from the parks. It was introduced back in 1986 at the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland in Disneyland
Try it at home! This week the Disneyland App released Disney-approved directions
Dole Whip, a pineapple ice cream treat, is one of Disney fans’ favorite offerings from the parks.
It was introduced back in 1986 at the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland in Disneyland.
Fans have done their best to recreate Dole Whip at home, but this week the Disneyland App released Disney-approved directions.
The recipe requires ‘one big scoop’ of vanilla ice cream, 4 oz. pineapple juice, and 2 cups of frozen pineapple.
Still shut down: Disney announced today that its park will remain closed until at least May 31
The ingredients are all added to a blender and blended until smooth, then served in a bowl. To create the same swirl effect as seen in the parks, home chefs can use a piping bag.
What the app fails to mention is that all Dole Whip served in Disney parks is vegan, meaning it’s also non-dairy.
For those making it at home, choosing non-dairy ice cream is optional.
Meanwhile, for a special ‘adult’ version of the treat, some spots across the parks add rum.
