For this version, she suggests using her handy, dandy Yonanas machine (which I have). For those who don’t have one, no fear… A good blender can do roughly the same thing with maybe a slightly less creamy texture. That said, I really encourage checking out a Yonanas machine though, especially if you’re into clean or healthy eating and struggle with giving up sweet treats. I’ve put everything from bananas to smoothie mixes through to make really great, healthy dessert options, and there are so many great recipes out there…
The only thing she sometimes switches up when making these is the whipped topping. The real deal Dole Whips are vegan friendly with no dairy, so I suppose the most authentic way to serve this is without the whipped topping. However, if you like a really creamy texture, she says to add the whipped topping. It’s all personal taste. But if you’re a purist, skip the whipped topping. The consistency is light, though admittedly not as light as the in-park soft serve.
Now, on with the recipe. Seriously, it’s insanely easy. She did warn everybody. It’s easy. Embarrassingly easy. Don’t make me write how to make this a Dole Whip Float… Just put pineapple juice in a glass and scoop some of this on top. Easy. Super, duper easy.

1 16-ounce bag of Dole frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup whipped topping (optional)
Water (if using a blender)
Remove pineapple chunks from freezer. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
Using a Yonanas machine, feed the pineapple chunks into the chute. Using the
plunger, push through the feeder into a bowl. Disassemble unit and scrape out remaining whipped pineapple.
If desired, mix in whipped topping until thoroughly blended. Serve immediately.
If using a blender, add pineapple into the blender and blend on puree, adding water slowly in a thin stream while the blender is running as needed, to achieve desired consistency.
