Peanut punch is definitely part of Trinbago life. And everyone has their favorite punch vendor, especially in Port-of-Spain.
I grew up on “pack peanut punch” but this recipe is so much better!
If you like, you can pour the punch into popsicle molds for a refreshing, frozen treat on a hot day.

Making peanut punch is incredibly easy. All you have to do is blend the ingredients together and serve chilled. If you are planning to serve immediately, use cold ingredients and some ice while blending.
But, for a creamier punch, add ice to your glass instead of the blender. You can garnish with some granola or a pinch of nutmeg. The choice is yours.
I added the ice to my glass and it was so, so good:
