Peanut punch ingredients
For this recipe, I used:
- evaporated milk: you can substitute with non-dairy options here like almond or another nut milk.
- banana: ripe to overripe bananas are great here.
- peanut butter: smooth or crunchy, it doesn’t matter as long as it blends well. You can also toast peanuts and grind them to make your own peanut paste for this recipe.
- condensed milk: feel free to use a sweetener of your choice. The condensed milk adds to the creaminess of the punch but you can try brown sugar in its place.
- vanilla essence: a little vanilla goes a long way.
- cinnamon: this adds a wonderful, mild spice taste to the peanut punch.
- nutmeg: usually the nutmeg flavor is subtle but you know it’s there in the drink.
- ice: While you could blend the ice with the punch, I prefer to leave it out and instead add it to the glass when serving.
- optional additions: there are so many additional ingredients you can include in the punch. Try toasted oats, Angostura bitters, cardamom or ginger powder, chia seeds, ground flaxseed and granola. Make it boozy with a little Caribbean rum too. The variations are endless and tasty!

How to make peanut punch
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a blender (I’m using the Nutri cup of my Ninja kitchen system here). If you have the time, chill the ingredients beforehand if you are planning to serve the drink right away. But, this isn’t necessary.
Step 2: Blend until smooth and fully incorporated. Serve immediately with ice or chill in the fridge. It can last about 3 days in there. Feel free to garnish the drink with a pinch of nutmeg or granola when serving. Sometimes, I pour the punch into these popsicles molds I got on Amazon. The popsicles make a perfect, refreshing afternoon treat.
