Peanut Punch

 

This is one rich decadent drink that I love so much. So this is especially for you. It is a really simple recipe so simple that you won’t believe how delicious. Peanut Punch is a special Caribbean festive drink.

This recipe will yield enough for two people or more. You can always make more by doubling the recipe for a larger group.

You’ll Need…

16-20 cubes of ice
6 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or chunky – your choice)
2 cups evaporated milk
2 tablespoons condensed milk

NB: When you’ve tried this traditional peanut punch recipe you can experiment a bit more by adding some of these ingredients…
– dash vanilla essence
– ripe banana
– dash nutmeg
– honey
– granola

* In place of condensed milk, you can add sugar or honey as your sweetener.

Method…

You’ll need a blender. Put the ice in first. By doing this, the condensed milk and peanut butter will go on top of it and not settle on the bottom where the blades will not reach.

After the ice as said earlier, I put in the peanut butter, followed by the condensed milk and evaporated milk. Then blend for about 30-40 seconds until everything breaks down and is mixed evenly.

The result is a very filling, creamy, delicious, and frothy drink. Once done serve immediately to make use of that ice crushed during blending.

Above I listed some additional ingredients you may choose to use as you become a bit more experimental. I would suggest adding one or two to start and go from there. For a more filling peanut punch, you may add the ripe bananas and/or granola mentioned above.

Enjoy it! 🙂
