Whipped Pineapple Pops Recipe

If you have ever been to Disneyland, they have this amazing thing called a Dole Whip.  It’s like a fluffy, creamy tangy pineapple treat that people actually wait in line for 30 minutes for.  My sister is visiting from Texas and she loves to cook and try new recipes, and so the other day we attempted to recreate our own Dole Whip and in the process ended up making it into popsicles from our creation.  And so glad we did!

Whipped Pineapple Pops. Your favorite pineapple dessert, made into a popsicle!

There are a couple of ways you can do this.  You can either use crushed pineapple or fresh pineapple.  We chose to use crushed since that is what I had on hand.  This Whipped Pineapple Pops Recipe makes quite a bit of ‘whip’, so you can cut it in half if you aren’t making it for very many people.  We used 2 – 20 oz cans of crushed pineapple.

Drain one can and include the juice of the other can.  Whenever I buy canned fruit, I always buy ‘Naturally Sweetened’.  The fruit that is canned in syrup contains a lot of extra sugar and so make sure you buy naturally sweetened.  If you are using fresh pineapple, you will probably need an entire pineapple, cut up into chunks.

Whatever pineapple you decide to use, place it in a high powered blender.  If you like a little more tart flavor you can add the juice of a fresh squeezed lime.

 

Whipped Pineapple Pops. Kids will definitely love these pineapple pops!

If your pineapple isn’t very sweet, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite sweetener, but it isn’t necessary. Blend until it is a smooth, frothy consistency.

Whipped Pineapple Pops. A great way to eat pineapples by making it into popsicles!

The next step is to combine with your creamy ingredient.  We used cream that we whipped because we were going for an extra fluffy rich texture.  But you can also use almond milk, coconut milk (full fat works best) (think pina colada – yum!) half and half, or whatever you prefer.

If you use whipped cream, you can put the mixture in the freezer for a bit and just serve it as a ‘Dole Whip’.

Should the coconut milk be in the can or refrigerated carton??

How many pops does one recipe make? I want to make these for a big group of kids…

Natalie says:

You can use either. The coconut milk in the can generally has a higher fat content and would be creamier – you can also whip the canned kind. But the kind in a carton is also good – just different.

Natalie says:

It depends on how big your popsicle molds are, but in my Zoku molds this recipe will make at least 15 pops. I actually stopped making them because I didn’t think we would eat them all. For a smaller mold you could probably get at least 25.

Jordan says:

Excellent! Big Disney Parks fan and LOVE the Dole Whip so I’m glad I found this! Can’t wait to try it!

thuy says:

I have a fresh pineapple. Should I take the core out or use the entire pineapple? My Vitamix will be able to handle the core.

Natalie Monson says:

You can try it with the core for sure!

Kristy says:

Wow, these look great. I don’t know how I missed them when I was at Disney. Do you think this works with any other fruit?

Thanks for sharing! I’m totally going to try this!

Natalie says:

It would probably be fine with the core. If your blender is able to blend it fine enough then you probably won’t even be able to tell the difference.

Natalie says:

I’m sure it would work with other fruit, it would just be a totally different popsicle!

Colleen says:

Have you done other zoku recipes? I think my fam will love these!

Natalie says:

We have several other recipes on our site using the Zoku. Wacky Watermelon Pops, Strawberry Creamsicle, and Red, White and Blueberry Pops. They always turn out so good!

Malissa says:

If I use cool whip can I still make them into pops or only as the dole whip. And if I use half and half should I whip it first or just it as is? Thanks!

Natalie says:

You could make them into pops using cool whip – you may want to use a little less as the mixture might be too thick to pour into a mold. If you use half and half you can either whip if you are making the dole whip, or just use it as is if you are making pops.

Zuzu says:

I just made these and put them in the freezer. When I checked on them I noticed they separated and the juice liquid is on the bottom of the pop mold. Has this happened to anybody else?

Caroline says:

If I use cool whip, how much should I include?

Pat says:

When you say 1 1/2 cups cream, are you talking about whipping cream?

Natalie says:

Yes – whipping cream.

Natalie says:

I would probably use the same amount 1 1/2 cups.

This sounds fabulous – and easy!

This sounds fabulous – and easy!

Rochelle says:

how did you make your own cream I would like to do that I go as natural and healthy as possible and want ti cut out positives

Nella says:

So for the whipping cream….do you mix it so it’s whipped? or you already use the kind that is similar to cool whip? Thanks 🙂

Natalie says:

Yes I mixed it until whipped from liquid.

Natalie says:

I used heavy cream. Didn’t actually make that, but I whipped it until it was whipped cream.

I use your recipes, posts and great health advice in my health coaching business. I love your content and how to help children be healthy. Thank you for all you do!

Linda says:

Can I use yogurt ,regular or frozen? My granddaughter is lactose intolerant.

Sally says:

You should always use canned coconut milk. The stuff in the cartoon has additives. Check the ingredients. It should say coconut and water. Nothing else.

shana says:

Or you can use an ice cube tray with toothpicks sticking out of each one for a handle….my kids love it!!

lupe says:

I will totally love one those pop makers where can I get one. Every time I see you post the pictures online makes me one more and more 🙂

Cathy says:

If using coconut milk, should I whip that first?

Cathy says:

If using coconut milk, should I whip that first?

Amy says:

I would whip it up first, just like the cream!

Sylwia says:

Can I use rice milk ?????

Natalie Monson says:

Yes – in my experience rice milk is a little bit thinner than other milks, so it may not have the same creamy consistency, but it should work fine.

Lynda says:

Hi, I’m just a bit confused. Do I just use almond milk or should I do something to make the almond milk “whipped” ? Thank you! We’re looking forward to these!

Natalie Monson says:

Sorry for the confusion! If you are just making the pops, then you don’t need to whip it. Just add it to your pineapple mixture and then pour into your pop molds 🙂

Lynda says:

I’m just a confused person lol..Thank you so much!!! We’re going to make these now ☺

Skyler Thompson says:

I’m confused a little, LOL. How many almonds do I put in my Zoku brand mixer (which is just the BEST BTW!) to make the almond milk? Zoju can handle ANYTHING!

Natalie Monson says:

We don’t have a recipe for almond milk within this post. Sorry!
