This Dole Whip Cocktail with Rum Recipe is the adult version of the popular Disney treat! A blend of pineapple, banana, coconut milk and rum, these ingredients combine for a refreshing, summer drink that will make you feel like you’re on vacation!
It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to Disney World, which means it’s also been a couple years since I’ve had a Dole Whip!
If you’ve never had one, you might not realize how super sad that is.
They are refreshing and tart and basically the ultimate hot weather treat. Luckily, there are lots of recipes for Dole Whips so that I (and I suppose you too) can make your own at home whenever the craving hits you!
This Dole Whip recipe from Mama Cheaps is not only delicious, it’s easy enough that your kids can help you make it this summer!
But I’m me, and sometimes I’m in the mood for an adult drink. So I made this easy Dole Whip with Rum recipe and now I just might be hooked!
It is so good and refreshing, and while I’m no nutritionist, I’m going to tell myself it’s not that bad for me either. I mean it’s pretty much all fresh fruit with a little coconut milk thrown in for good measure. It can’t be that bad, right?! Don’t tell me if it is…
How to Make a Dole Whip with Rum
You do need to plan ahead a little bit because you want your fruit to be frozen to give it that ultimate slushie consistency. I just used a bag of frozen pineapple from the grocery store. You could also freeze fresh pineapple if you prefer.
You also need a frozen banana for this recipe. Just be sure to peel your banana before freezing. I peel mine, cut them in half and them put them in a ziploc bag in the freezer. Be sure to remove all the excess air from your freezer bag before sealing it to prevent freezer burn.
Once your fruit is frozen and you’re ready to make your drink, just combine all your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! It’s super easy and even more delicious!
I used rum in mine but you can also use rum cream if that’s what you have on hand. It just gives it a creamier texture. You use the same amount of rum cream in place of the rum. I would pick one or the other, though, you don’t need to use both!
Tools Needed to Make a Dole Whip with Rum
- Blender– you really need a full size blender for this recipe. I normally go to my trusty 3 cup food chopper for drinks, but this was just too many ingredients for that. A blender it is then!
- Freezer Bags– I’ve tried freezing fruit in generic sandwich bags before and the right freezer bags really do make a difference when it comes to freezer burn!
- Unbreakable Cocktail Glasses– You are going to want to drink these while sitting around a pool! Don’t ruin your afternoon by having broken glass on your patio. These unbreakable glasses are my go-to for summer BBQs!
- Pineapple Corer– For $10, do yourself a favor and get yourself this pineapple corer, slicer and peeler in one. It will be your BFF this summer.
