I've spoken with the distributer about the ingredients and the pineapple and orange are dairy free. They're pale yellow and pale orange. I could tell them apart as we ordered both within our party, but it could be tough if it were dark. You can see which machine the server is using while you order though.

Just curious if anyone has tried to order the mix and make in a home ice cream machine or a blender. If so, how was it?

I have a bag of the mix and I added a few spoonfuls to my DS's smoothies a couple weeks ago when I was testing if he could tolerate the caseinate (before I realized it was now dairy free), but I haven't made a batch of "ice cream" yet. It wasn't terribly expensive. A little over $20 including shipping for a commercial bag that makes A LOT. I intend to try it in my home ice cream maker and will report back, but right now we're in that post-vacation phase where we feel like we need to eat broccoli for a month after stuffing ourselves with junk food for a week.

It is my understanding that this is the same exact stuff that Disney uses, in fact the instructions tell you to mix it in a 2 gallon bucket. I'm not sure the consistency will ever match perfectly though without a commercial soft serve machine. A home ice cream machine will never infuse the kind of air into it that a soft serve machine will. I can also try a blender method, maybe freeze the mix in ice cube trays and then add to blender. I got a Yonana's machine for Christmas and I wondered if I could somehow add it to the frozen bananas to get a nice soft serve-like dessert.

On a separate note, did anyone see the new Dole Whip t-shirts the Disney Store is offering?

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

Pineapple and orange Dole Whip Swirls taste even better when dairy free!

It's mixed in buckets before pouring into the machine. I would want to make sure the buckets aren't shared between the flavored without adequate washing. From the mix i bought I can tell you the mix is very powdery and poofs when you pour it if you know what I mean.

It's also sold at Captain Cooks, the QS in the Polynesian. I wonder if there's any chance they only sell the pineapple flavor? I don't know though as we've never been to Capt Cooks or checked out Dole Whips very closely.

Dairy is my DS's mildest allergy and the only one I'm not super careful about cross-contamination with, so I sympathize.

What is this dairy free list? I'm also allergic to milk (no worry of cross contaimination). I was in Disney in October and I thought they were no longer giving out the allergy friendly foods list.

I'm super excited that I'll get to try a Dole whip!!
