Caribbean Peanut Punch

Peanut punch is a protein packed, energy drink that’s popular in Jamaica, Trinidad and other parts of the Caribbean. The first peanut punch I ever had was one of the boxed drinks that you can get from grocery stores that carry Caribbean products. I loved it and soon learned to make my own so I can control what goes into it.

Although, it’s customary to use raw peanuts for this drink, you can use chunky or smooth peanut butter instead; my preference is for chunky peanut butter. You’ll also need vanilla and a spice like nutmeg. Evaporated milk and water are also commonly used but I prefer to use coconut or almond milk and a bit of condensed milk for sweetness. To make the drink even more nutritious, you can add a banana and/or oatmeal. For a more indulgent peanut punch, you can add a splash of white rum. The recipe is on the printable recipe card below. Enjoy!
