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 peanut punch boxed drinks that you can get from almost any grocery store that carries Caribbean products. I loved it and soon learned to make my own so I could control what went into it.

Although, it’s customary to use raw peanuts for this drink, you can also use chunky or smooth peanut butter; 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 peanut punch even more nutritious, you can also add a banana and/or a tablespoon or two of oatmeal. For a more indulgent peanut punch, you can add some white rum. Enjoy!
