Since I was a young child, I remember my mother making this Orange Pineapple Party Punch for holiday parties and special occasions. I always loved helping her mash the frozen punch into a punch bowl and stir in the soda. And we loved when she made it because it is delicious! I now make this for my family, and every time I make it, my little kids keep asking for more to drink because they love it too.
This punch is perfect for so many occasions throughout the year such as holidays, family parties or during the summer when it’s hot. We have even used this punch for family wedding receptions many times.
And this recipe is simple to make and only has 5 ingredients: bananas, pineapple juice, frozen orange juice concentrate, frozen pink lemonade concentrate and Sprite or 7-Up.
Here is the recipe for the best Orange Pineapple Party Punch:
Orange Pineapple Party Punch
- 5 bananas
- 1 can pineapple juice, 46 oz
- 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, 12 oz
- 1 can frozen pink lemonade, 12 oz
- 2 bottles Sprite or 7-Up, 2 liters
- Blend bananas in a blender with some of the pineapple juice, frozen orange juice concentrate and frozen pink lemonade concentrate. Pour into a large bowl.
- Mix in the remainder of the pineapple juice, frozen orange juice and frozen pink lemonade into the bowl.
- Pour punch into gallon re-sealable bags or large plastic containers. Label and freeze.
- To serve: Place frozen punch into large punch bowl. Use a knife to cut the frozen punch into smaller pieces. Mash, then slowly stir in half of a 2-liter bottle of Sprite or 7-Up. Continue mashing, stirring and adding in Sprite or 7-Up until it's a slushy consistency. (Pour in about equal parts of frozen punch to soda.)

Hi there! Im super excited to try this recipe for my nieces bridal shower this weekend. Wondering though with no alcohol in it wont the gallon bags just freeze solid? How do you mash it up. Wont the pineapple juice just make everything a hard block of ice in the bags? Just planning ahead! Thanks for the recipe!!

I’m so glad you are going to try this recipe. It’s a family favorite. Yes, the gallon bags freeze solid. So what we do is place the entire frozen solid block in a punch bowl and we use a knife to cut it into smaller pieces (I’ll add that to the directions above) and then we use a masher to mash it into a slushy consistency and add the soda as we are mashing to help it slightly melt as we mash it. You could also take the bag out of the freezer an hour before serving which will also help to thaw it slightly and help it mash more easily.

My favorite! I have made this so many times. I wish I had thought of the freezer bags. I used bowls and put in the punch bowl and pour the 7up over it. The bowls took up so much room in my freezer.
I think putting the frozen part in ice cube trays so they will automatically be in smaller portions and much easy to mash without cutting at all. Will definitely try this for our Christmas Dinner.

That is a great idea! I don’t have enough ice cube trays since this makes a larger batch, but it would definitely make it easier to cut and mash if it were in smaller portions. Thanks for the idea!

Do you have any idea how many this would serve?
Lisa Park says
I calculated it, and it will serve about 20-25 (6oz or 8oz cups).
