Make Your Own Disney Dole Whip

dolewhip

Who says you have to go to Disney World to eat a bowl of classic Disney Dole Whip? Make some at home this summer with this recipe from bellyfull.net!

What is Dole Whip? Dole Whip is a pineapple-flavored soft-serve ice cream. It was originally created by the fruit company, Dole, but became available at Disneyland’s Tiki Bar in 1986. It’s now served at a few different locations in the park and also across the US, but pretty synonymous with Disneyland. It’s achieved a large following as visitors to Disney will wait in a very long line just to get one on a hot day.

At IAWAH we love to play a variety of large group games, sometimes in the woods, and sometimes on the soccer field.

Here are three classics that a lot of our large group camp games are based on.
