I took my youngest daughter Ava to Disneyland on a media trip when she was just 2 years old. Prior to going I had heard a lot about Dole Whips, so when we got there I was definitely on a mission to get a Dole Whip.

Let me tell you, if you haven’t had a Dole Whip at Disney, you 100% must have one before you die.

Now, here in Ontario we are quite a distance from authentic Disney Dole Whip so we have to make do as we can and these Disney inspired Dole Whip Ice Pops certainly hit the mark.

These are super creamy, tangy and sweet pineapple ice pops.

I use real cream and sugar here because Dole Whips are made with soft serve vanilla ice cream. These aren’t a healthy treat and you aren’t going to make anything like the real thing using coconut milk and dreams. Sorry.

Let this cool summer pineapple treat refresh you and bring on some fun summer vibes.

How long do I need to Freeze these Ice Pops?

It will take at least 6 hours to freeze these ice pops. Freezing overnight is your best bet, and will give you something to look forward to the next day!

How long do ice pops last in the freezer?

All fruit ice pops can last up to six months in the freezer if properly stored.

Since these ice pops contain dairy they should only be kept up to 2 months in the freezer. Don’t worry though, I doubt they will last that long!

How to unmould an ice pop

The best way to remove the ice pops is to run the bottom 2/3 of the mould under warm water for about a minute. 

You will want to carefully pull on the stick to remove the pops from the mould, when ready they will come out pretty easily.

How do you make ice pops without a mould?

If you don’t have a mould, you can use plastic cups instead. Pour the liquid ice pop mix into your cups, cover each with tin foil and poke it through with a wooden stick, then freeze overnight.

How do you store homemade ice pops?

If you aren’t eating them immediately after unmolding you can store ice pops in individual plastic bags so they don’t stick together. Alternatively, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store in a sealable freezer bag.

Equipment needed to make Ice Pops

Molds – This is the silicone mold set that I purchased, I like the silicone molds because they are easier to deal with and won’t crack like plastic molds.

Wooden sticks – The above set comes with a few but you will want to buy more food grade wooden sticks.

Ingredients for Dole Whip Ice Pops

Pineapple – Use crushed, canned pineapple and nothing else. Fresh pineapple is no good, it will 100% curdle the cream.

Cream – You can use any kind of cream you like here, coconut milk works fine. For the best taste though, stick with the heavy cream.

Cornstarch – Cornstarch will keep your creamy ice pops just the way you want them instead of getting icy.

Sugar – You can swap the sugar for the sweetener of your choice. I made a second batch with Stevia and they turned out great.

Vanilla Extract – You could also use vanilla bean here if you like. Extract is something I always have on hand though and I think way more common in most peoples pantries.
