Orange-Pineapple Delight

“I was just tickled with this recipe. Many years ago I had a similar recipe that used fresh strawberries and strawberry jello; it was very pretty and very tasty and I was sad when I lost my copy. But I like orange-pineapple even more than strawberries, so this recipe, found in a Jell-O cookbook, is a newfound treasure! Serve as a sweet salad, or a dessert. Perfect for a potluck or bbq.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pineapple well, reserving juice.
  2. Place pineapple juice in a 2-cup measuring cup and add enough cold orange juice to make 1 1/2 cups liquid.
  3. Place orange jello in a large bowl and add boiling water; stir at least 2 minutes or until jello is completely dissolved.
  4. Stir pineapple/orange juice into jello.
  5. Reserve one cup of the jello mixture; leave this at room temperature.
  6. Stir half of the crushed pineapple into jello mixture in bowl; pour into a 6 cup mold that you've sprayed with nonstick cooking spray (like Pam).
  7. Refrigerate mold about two hours, or until set but not firm-- mixture should stick to your finger when touched, and should mound.
  8. Place cream cheese into mixing bowl and stir in reserved gelatin (what you've been keeping at room temp); whisk well until smooth.
  9. Stir in remaining crushed pineapple; spoon this mixture over gelatin layer in mold.
  10. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm; unmold and serve.
