I tried my first Dole Whip on a trip to Disney World many years ago. It was love at first bite and, since then, I have always loved the frosty pineapple treat. Dole whips are no longer limited to classic pineapple flavor. Coconut, orange and strawberry are just a few of the flavors that can be found in the Disney parks. But did you know you can make Dole Whips at home too?

Using fresh fruit and ingredients most of us have on hand, a Dole Whip can be “whipped up” in less than 20 minutes! There are several different Dole Whip recipes on the company’s website.

Last fall, the Dole Food Company shared a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice-Sweet Potato Dole Whip. The company has concocted another delicious seasonally-inspired recipe with their new Frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate Dole Whip.

This Frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate Dole Whip is a spicy fall sip!

The main ingredients in this vegan recipe are bananas and avocados. The fruit is mixed with cashew milk and cocoa and sweetened with vanilla extract and cane sugar. Cayenne pepper and cinnamon give the drink a little heat.
