Bring Disney to your kitchen, with this homemade chocolate Dole Whip!

Creamy 4 Ingredient Chocolate Dole Whip

Recently, a large number of new readers have been finding my blog thanks to a post I wrote on the original pineapple Dole Whip Recipe.

But I’m Chocolate Covered Katie… and yet that post has no chocolate!

So naturally, I came up with an easy-to-make chocolate Dole Whip.

Just 4 ingredients, no added sugar, no eggs or dairy, and NO banana this time!

Chocolate Nice Cream (No Banana)

I know it looks like dessert, but this frozen healthy treat is also one of my favorite summer post-workout snacks.

Super healthy, and with ZERO added sugar, the whipped chocolate recipe is packed with antioxidants to fight inflammation and help speed up recovery.

I’ll often add a scoop of almond butter for a protein boost, and the topping options are endless. Here are just a few ideas:

Sliced banana
Mini chocolate chips
Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Shredded coconut
Crushed walnuts
Pumpkin seeds

Or chia seeds, strawberries, Coconut Whipped Cream, chocolate syrup, raspberries, cherries, blueberries…

To make the chocolate snack, you simply blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. Spoon into bowls (I like to use an ice cream scoop for authentic presentation) or pipe it through a pastry bag if you want the classic Dole Whip swirl.

Disney doesn’t actually sell a chocolate version (they should!!). For now, it’s available exclusively in your home.

Tips & Tricks For Success:

1. My favorite trick is to buy frozen cherries instead of fresh ones

Not only is buying frozen usually cheaper, it also lets you make the ice cream any time you want it, no need to wait for the fruit to freeze. But the biggest reason I recommend buying frozen cherries is that they usually come already pitted, saving you the step of having to do it yourself.

2. Scoop out with an ice cream scoop

Scooping the chocolate whip out of the blender with a regular spoon works just fine, but only using an ice cream scoop will give it an ice cream shape!

3. Try freezing the milk in an ice cube tray

If you like to make smoothies, homemade ice cream, or frozen coffee drinks, it’s always a good idea to freeze some milk of choice or coconut milk in an ice cube tray.

(I own this ice cube tray.)

Pop a few out to use instead of liquid in your frozen treats, and they will add thickness and creaminess without watering the recipe down like using regular ice would.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 2 – 3 servings
5 from 4 votes


  • 2 cups frozen cherries (250g)
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice or canned coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp dutch cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional 1-2 tbsp almond butter or coconut butter


  • *If using fresh cherries as opposed to buying them already frozen, be sure to pit them first. If you don’t have dutch cocoa, you can replace it with 1 tbsp regular cocoa plus 1-2 tbsp melted chocolate.
    To make the recipe, simply blend all ingredients until smooth. Scoop out (I like to use an ice cream scoop for presentation), or pipe through a pastry bag if you want it swirly. (If using a blender that is not as powerful as a Vitamix, you might need to thaw the cherries a bit and then freeze a few minutes or churn in an ice cream maker before serving.) Serve topped with mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, or sliced banana if desired.

    I can not wait to make this!! I can’t eat nice cream with bananas because my potassium levels have been elevated on my bloodwork for years. And I love cherries. I know this will be amazing!

  2. Mandy Sosa says

    Do you think this would work with a different frozen fruit, like strawberry ? I love this idea, but my son can’t tolerate banana or cherry ( lucky us).

  3. Jan says

    This sounds very yummy, but I’m not quite understanding why it’s called “Dole Whip”….isn’t that a pineapple based (and I think there is a citrus version now) frozen dessert? Or has Disney come out with a new Dole Whip in the year I’ve been away? For those of us watching carbs, I would suggest heavy cream for the “milk of choice”. Thanks for coming up with a no sugar version.

    • Jennifer M says

      Wikipedia says there are seven flavors. I think it’s just flavors that Dole makes of fruit. “The original pineapple flavor is best known but six additional fruit flavors are sold: Mango Lemon Orange Raspberry Strawberry Lime”

      I’m not Katie but figured I’d answer since I have made similar recipes before. They are creamiest and best texture when they’re first made but you can still eat from the freezer if you store them covered and thaw for 20 minutes or around that before you eat them.

    This was DELICIOUS. Tasted like a really decadent chocolate cherry sorbet. We’ve made it twice, once with fresh cherries that I pitted and froze and once with already frozen grocery store cherries – I think fresh worked best because it seemed to have less moisture and was a better consistency.

  5. Jennie says

    I’ve made this four times since the recipe was posted. I’ve never been a fan of cherries and the first time I made it, I wasn’t sure what to think. But I totally love it now! I eat it right away, so it is like soft serve ice cream. The Dutch processed cocoa makes all the difference! I honestly like it more than ice cream. Yummy!
