Why Dole’s DIY Dole Whip Recipe is Perfect for Children

If you’re constantly searching for healthy and delicious treats your kids will love, let us introduce you to Dole’s DIY Dole Whip—a sweet treat that is made with whole food ingredients and incredibly easy to make at home, perfect for these hot summer months. If you’re trying to balance nutritious and kid friendly foods- this recipe is a must for you. And just in time to celebrate Dole Whip Day!

Originally a theme park favorite, this frosty delight has garnered a massive following over the years. The best part is that you don’t have to leave home to enjoy it. With just five ingredients and a few minutes, you can whip up this refreshing dessert anytime.

Unlike most store-bought desserts loaded with artificial flavors and excessive sugar, Dole’s DIY Dole Whip is made from wholesome, natural ingredients and they’re packed with nutritional benefits too. Here are a few reasons why it’s a healthier treat for kids. 

Lower Sugar Content:  While it does contain a bit of powdered sugar, the overall sugar content is significantly lower compared to traditional desserts. Plus, often, due to the natural sweetness from the pineapple and banana means you won’t need additional sweeteners at all!

Dairy-Free Delight:  For families dealing with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies, this treat is a lifesaver. Using coconut milk not only keeps it dairy-free but also adds a subtle tropical flavor.

Packed with Nutrients:  This dessert isn’t just empty calories. Every serving provides essential vitamins and minerals, making it a treat you can feel good about giving to your children. Pineapple is rich in vitamins C which helps growing bodies absorb iron, build strong bones and fend off infection. Bananas are an important source of potassium – a nutrient of concern that supports active muscles and can help avoid cramping. Plus, both fruits deliver fiber, an important nutrient for both gut and heart health.

Our DIY Dole Whip is a perfect example of how delicious and nutritious can go hand-in-hand. Easy to make, packed with natural ingredients, and loved by kids—what’s not to love? And if you like this Dole Whip visit the Dole Whip Wonderland page for more delicious variations to try.
