Dole Whip Popsicles Recipe
Hello, Today’s Creative Life readers! I’m Kimberly from A Night Owl – a blog where we share all sorts of creative endeavors like crafts, recipes and more! I am truly am a night owl, working full time and am a mom of two adorable little boys. So whatever creative things I can get up to, are typically after hours! One thing you can be sure of when you stop by is that whatever we’re sharing you can create as well! And today is no exception. We live in sunny Arizona, so come Summertime we are obsessed with anything frozen, especially popsicles! And nothing says Summer more than tropical recipes, right? And today we’re sharing a yummy Dole Whip Popsicles recipe!
Copycat Dole Whip Recipe from Disney
Just amazing. And just the creamy pineapple taste of a Dole Whip takes me back to my childhood; to Summers spent riding Space Mountain and the Matterhorn.
Have you tried the copycat Dole Whip recipes out there? I have to admit that I totally have and just love being able to enjoy them at home. But recently I thought – I bet that would make a fantastic popsicle, and I was right!
One of my favorite popsicle recipes to date is our Orange Julius Popsicles. Kind of the same concept – a yummy tropical drink that we turned into a tasty popsicle! The ingredients for this popsicle are just as easy. I simply grabbed a can of crushed pineapple, a tub of Cool Whip, some sugar and the juice of one lime and blended it all together.
Then I simply poured that tasty pineapple-y concoction into our popsicle molds and let those babies freeze!
How to Make Dole Whip Popsicles
Yield: 6 popsicles (depending on the size of popsicle mold)
- crushed pineapple
- Cool Whip
- lime juice
Blend together crushed pineapple, Cool Whip, lime juice, and sugar.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.

Once they were ready, we devoured them right away. Now my kids are little so there weren’t any Dole Whip memories for them, but they loved them all the same! And for me – they were Dole Whip perfection in a pop! Amazingly easy and just so very tasty. And even if you’ve never had a Dole Whip – if you love the taste of pineapple you’re going to LOVE these popsicles! If you’re a fan of popsicles, you must stop by and check out our growing list of easy and delicious popsicle recipes!

Can I Omit the Sugar?
If you’re trying to lower the sugar content, you can use unsweetened pineapple, as well as omit the sugar. Please keep in mind that this recipe is not a sugar-free recipe because of the cool whip.
Can I Use Whip Cream instead of Cool Whip?
I have not tried doing this for this particular recipe, however, I’ve had success on other recipes. To make the whipped cream more stable, whip 1 1/4 cups cold heavy cream (whipping cream), 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 3/4 tsp vanilla. This will keep up to 5 days in the fridge.
Can I Make This Recipe with Other Fruit?
Peaches, bananas, and Mandarin oranges all make refreshing frozen desserts.

Hi, these sound great. Question do you drain the juice? If not, can I skip the sugar?
Also do you actually put this in a blender?
Hello Rita, This popular recipe shared by Kim from A Night Owl Blog is a guest post. Because it’s not my own recipe, I am unsure how it would taste if altered, by not adding sugar. I would think they would be fine. As far as adding the juice, I read it as yes. It doesn’t say to drain, so yes, add the juice.
Kelly- these sound so good! Do you know how many calories are in each? Have you ever made them using the light whip cream or a sugar substitute like truvia? Love the pics, too!
Kimberly may circle back and see your comment. Thank you!
Kim- I am sorry I addressed you as Kelly. I am getting ready to make these and just noticed my blunder.

I’m from Canada and so our Cool Whip comes in a 1L tub; can you tell me how many cups of cool whip this recipe calls for? It’s not an easy conversion with cool whip being lighter than most liquids or solids even. THanks! Can’t wait to try this!
Hi Kelly, I’ll shoot my guest poster Kim an email.
Kimberly @ A Night Owl says
Hi Kelly! An 8oz tub is about 3 cups of Cool Whip. Hope that helps!
