Peanut Punch For Two.

peanut punch (6)

There’s been a number of requests for a peanut punch recipe, so I caved in today and finally got around to putting one together. My dad who’s one of my go-to people when I’ve never made something before, is wintering in the Caribbean so this recipe cost me a long distance call. And though his recipe calls for using custard, which I didn’t use… you’ll be amazed at how simple, quick and how delicious this drink is. Peanut punch is one of those drinks that we tend to associate with sexual prowess in the Caribbean and it’s said to be good “for the back”… thoughts?

This recipe will yield enough for two people or one greedy person :) You can always make more by doubling the recipe.

You’ll Need…

8-10 cubes of ice
2 tablespoon peanut butter (smooth or chunky – your choice)
1 cup milk (again your choice – I used 2%)
1 tablespoon condensed milk (Sweetened)

Note: Once you’ve made this basic or traditional peanut punch you can experiment a bit by adding some of these ingredients…
– dash vanilla essence
– ripe banana
– dash nutmeg
– honey
– granola

* If you don’t have condensed milk, you can add sugar or honey as your sweetener or a combination of both.

You’ll need a blender or as I did, a magic bullet. Start by placing the ice in first. This way the condense 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 I put in the peanut butter, followed by the condense milk and milk. Then blend for about 30-40 seconds until everything breaks down and is incorporated evenly.

You’ll have a delicious, very filling, creamy and frothy drink. Serve immediately to make use of that ice we crushed during blending. Above you’ll notice that I listed some additional ingredients you can 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 can add the ripe bananas and/or granola I mentioned above.

My favorite memory of peanut punch other than the tetra packs my mom would have in her parlor, was going to visit my god father on Saturdays at his “chinee” shop in Princess Town, where he had peanut punch in the sort of fountain that had all the freshly made drinks. His fruit punch was also deadly!

    I remember drinking peanut punch from a bottle when we used to go to the movies, as a child, it was so good.

  3. kitty says:

    I tried this recipe and it came out terrible. There was too much ice and it wasn’t sweet enough and the peanut flavour was mild.

  4. Virgs says:

    A little of strong rum in there would make a great drink for party celebration

    Hi Chris.. This is a yummy recipe!! You said your dad use custard? I would love his version cause my grandmother made it like that and I'm always wondering where to find that recipe.. seems like it's nowhere to be found!!

    So i made this again last night for my dad, who is a typical old-school, don't show his feelings type of fellow! Not prone to compliments at all lol…but he loved the peanut punch and was raving about it! He even asked for another one so I made it for him and watched him closely as he downed it in the same rapid succession as the first glass lol…i bet he would've had a 3rd glass if only i hadn't run out of peanut butter…but i can attest, Chris, this recipe is definitely a winner!! Thank you thank you!!

  7. Lydia says:

    Hi Chris.Greetings. Thanks for the peanut recipe. We are in spring and with summer just around the corner, I think i will need a cool punch for the hot days. Guess I will give it a bit of extra punch with a shot of Mount Gay Rum or Jim Beam. What do you say ?? Thanks for the nice recipe, will try it soon. Cheers, keep up the good work.

    i was looking for the recipe with the raw peanuts for peanut punch

  11. lindy says:

    Haven't tried the recipe as yet however I will . Where in Princes Town did your Godfather have shop?

    • jumbieg says:

      To be honest I'm not familiar with the area that much. It was within the city/town itself.. so if you're coming from San Fernando, pass the main center (junction) of the town and on the left side. A very popular 'chinee" shop. He later went on to build/own "Chicken Roost" in San Fernando, on the side of the library.
