Ah, Dole Whip. The iconic, frozen pineapple treat from Disney World. This delicious frozen treat is no longer limited to vacation–now you can have this tasty treat in the comfort of your own home with your Ninja Creami! This high-protein Dole whip is a great way to enjoy this frozen treat without the giant crowds, long lines, and added sugar.

Ninja Creami recipes made with fruit give some of the best flavors and textures, and pineapple is no exception. Pineapple makes some of the best protein ice creams if you ask me!

Have you ever had an ambrosia salad? You know, that delicious fruit salad with marshmallows and whipped cream? This delicious treat tastes so much like it but with much less sugar! It’s incredible.

While there are many recipes for pineapple Dole whip out there, I wanted to find a way to make homemade Dole whip that was high in protein and low in calories while still creating a creamy, rich tropical flavor.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

This high-protein Dole Whip is tropical, creamy, and tastes incredibly indulgent while being low in calories, sugar, and fat. The perfect treat for a hot summer day that won’t derail your fitness goals!

Ingredients & Equipment

This recipe uses very simple ingredients. All you need is:

  • Pineapple – To make this recipe easy, just use some canned crushed pineapple or a can of pineapple chunks–either works! I buy the canned pineapple packed in 100% juice to avoid heavy syrup. I’ve also made this with fresh pineapple chunks I cut myself, and that works great, too.
  • Vanilla Whey Isolate Protein Powder​ – Use your favorite whey isolate powder for this recipe.
  • Unsweetened Coconut Milk – Make sure you use the coconut milk beverage, not the canned coconut milk. Though you certainly could use canned coconut milk if you want a rich and creamy Dole whip, but it will significantly alter the calories and fat macros on this recipe.
  • Optional Added Sweetener – I add 2 tbsp of allulose (you can use whatever sweetener you prefer) to my high-protein Ninja Creami Dole whip. This is optional, but freezing will dull the sweetness of the fruit, so a little extra sweetness never hurts. I have made my Dole Whip with and without the added sweetener. It turns out well either way, but the sweetener gives a little more flavor.

As for equipment, you need a Ninja Creami ice cream maker, and I highly recommend an immersion blender, too.

These are the ingredients needed to make the Pineapple protein dole whip, including pineapple, coconut milk, protein powder, and sweetener.

Instructions

Simple ingredients, simple instructions!

This is a pint container with ingredients and an immersion blender on marble backdrop.

1. Combine Ingredients

Add the pineapple, protein powder, coconut milk, and optional sweetener to the Ninja Creami pint container. Use an immersion blender to blend until smooth.

2. Cover & Freeze

Place a cover on the pint container. Freeze on a level surface in your freezer for 24 hours.

3. Spin

Install the frozen pint container into your Ninja Creami machine per the manufacturer’s instructions. Press “Lite Ice Cream” for your first spin.

This is what the pineapple dole whip looks like after being spun in the ninja creami machine.

4. Check Texture

After the spin completes, check the texture of your ice cream. Do a spin on the Re-Spin function if you would like to smooth it out.

Quick Tips- Protein Amount Matters!

-If you want a thick Dole Whip with extra protein, use 50 grams (a bit more than 1 1/2 scoops) of vanilla whey isolate.
-If you want a lighter, fluffier texture (and a little less protein), just use 1 scoop of protein powder (roughly 30 grams–varies by brand). The different protein content makes for a texture change. See photo below.


This is a side by side graphic showing how dole whip made with 50 grams of protein powder is thicker than the one made with 30 grams.

On the left is 30 grams protein powder, on the right is 50 grams. You can see how the 30-gram protein Dole whip gives a fluffy texture, whereas the 50-gram is somewhere in between a soft-serve ice cream and traditional ice cream. It’s thick and scoopable, yet also soft and creamy.

Another delicious fruity protein ice cream recipe where you can play around with the protein amount is my raspberry protein ice cream.

Swaps & Variations

  • As you can see in the photo above, you can use differing amounts of protein powder to affect texture. For a fluffier whip, use one scoop of protein. For a thicker whip (as I prefer), 50 grams of powder (a bit more than 1 1/2 scoops) can help you achieve that texture.
  • Add some frozen cherries for a fruitier and creamier pineapple-cherry whip!
  • Add 1/4 tsp coconut extract for a stronger coconut influence.
  • Add a splash of lime juice for even more tropical flavor!
  • If you need a dairy-free dessert, make this Dole Whip vegan by using a plant-based protein powder.

Recipe Notes

If you do not finish the whole pint at once, flatten the top with the back of your spoon before putting it in the freezer again. Then you can spin it the next time you want to eat it to get that delicious, creamy texture back. Spin it the same way you did the first time–use the Lite Ice Cream setting followed by a re-spin if needed.

​You can also put the pint container in the microwave for 30-seconds to get the leftover Dole whip soft enough to eat. It will be scoopable with a spoon at that point, but it will not be as creamy as it is after using the Ninja Creami ice cream maker.

FAQ

Can I use a different kind of protein powder?

This recipe was developed and tested with whey isolate. You can try other types of protein, but results may vary.

What is a substitute for allulose?

If you don’t have allulose, you can use any 1 to 1 sugar substitute (or regular sugar if you wish). You could try a monk fruit/erythritol blend, stevia baking blend, etc.

Do I have to use canned pineapple?

You can use canned or fresh pineapple. I have also tested this recipe with both and it works great!
