The first step toward a healthy heart is eating a healthy diet. We love that our soft serve can support your dietary goals! Obesity and cholesterol are two important factors in heart wellness. Our product has no cholesterol, 0g trans fat, no saturated fat and is fat free!

A second step to a healthy heart is adding more fruits and vegetables! Soft serve is great topped with fresh fruit or fruit juice. Without adding cholesterol or calories, patrons topping their soft serve with fruit or 100% natural fruit juice can enjoy a guilt-free dessert packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. If you’ve been to Disney Parks you’ve heard of DOLE Whip and DOLE Whip Floats. People all over the world love fresh pineapple juice served over Pineapple Soft Serve!
