You nurtured your orange trees until full-grown status. But you need some great citrus recipes to consume some of your new oranges. You also have extra pineapple. 

You want a treat that satisfies your sugar cravings. A friend comes over and suggests you mix oranges and pineapples in one recipe. You've never heard of a pineapple-orange combination. 

Where do you begin?

Examples include starting with a pineapple punch recipe or a pineapple orange cake recipe. It may seem like an odd combination, but you'll find a wide array of pineapple orange recipes out there! This article will show you some creative recipes that require oranges and pineapples. Read on if you wish to invigorate your taste buds!

Pineapple Orange Cake

The citrus from the fruit will give this cake some extra zest. For this wonderful recipe, you'll just need some simple ingredients:

  • 4 egg whites
  • Yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of applesauce -unsweetened
  • 1 carton of whipped topping -reduced fat
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 can of oranges- undrained
  • 1-ounce package of instant vanilla pudding mix - unsweetened

From there, set the pineapple, pudding mix, and the whipped topping to the side. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl on low speed. Then, pour the batter onto a baking dish.

  • Note: Apply cooking spray on the baking dish for non-stick purposes. Ensure the dish is 13x9 in.

Place in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. When finished, stick a toothpick in the center of the cake to confirm if it's well-baked. Mix the pineapple and pudding in a bowel. Add in the whipped topping. Next, spread the icing over the cake. Place in the fridge for cooling.

Orange Pineapple Cream Milkshake

If you want a sweet treat in liquid form, look no further than a milkshake that only requires basic ingredients. You'll need such essentials as:

  • 1 1/2 cups of milk - whole
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • Orange slices - for garnish purposes
  • 1/4 cup of pineapple
  • 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 cups of vanilla ice cream

Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend for around 30 seconds. You can also blend the ingredients until you have a smooth texture. Pour the mixture in a glass, and add the orange garnish. You can also try an orange pineapple smoothie as a replacement if you're not into milkshakes.

Orange Pineapple Drink

If you prefer a tasty treat that's not in dessert form, an orange pineapple drink is a perfect refresher. You'll need the following ingredients:

  • 3 rings of pineapple
  • 2/3 cup of orange juice
  • 1/3 cup of pineapple juice
  • 3 scoops of orange sherbert 

Place all the ingredients in a blender except the pineapple rings. Blend accordingly until it's fully liquified. Pour for two people, and place the two pineapple rings on each glass. Enjoy!
