What is Peanut Punch Exactly?

OK, so in case you aren’t too familiar with this drink, let’s talk about it. Derived from the Jamaican culture, Peanut Punch is basically a very popular energy drink. Usually, it consists of warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, in addition to peanuts, granulated sugar, evaporated milk, and rum. 

Personally, I’ve never truly enjoyed it because it’s laced with rum (I’m not a drinker! Haha). However, I’ve stumbled upon a new and healthy way to enjoy this drink and I couldn’t be happier. It’s just so good! The awesome thing about this drink is that it’s so easy to make and it only requires one kitchen appliance—a blender! I know. You can thank me later!

Why Peanut Butter?

Ok, now let’s get back to this Peanut Punch! I love using Peanut Butter and have always been a HUGE fan since I was a kid growing up. Honestly, I can only eat chocolate (and truly enjoy it) when there’s peanut butter involved. Anyone else can relate?

So, of course, having this drink mostly made of peanut butter was a WIN, WIN for me! Haha. Because I love it so much, I chose to add a few extra dollops of peanut butter to create a thicker consistency. Rest assured, you don’t need to do this unless you’re a lover of this stuff like I am.

Usually, I enjoy using Justin’s Peanut Butter, but on my recent trip to the Organic Market, I came across Earth Balance’s Peanut Butter with Flaxseed and I had to give it a try! Thank goodness I did! It’s so tasty! Plus, it comes loaded with Omega-3, Sweetened with Agave, 0 grams of trans fat, and a host of other things that makes it a great Vegan option!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana, peeled + sliced
  • 1 cup Vegan Peanut Butter (I use Earth Balance)
  • 1/4 cup cashews, soaked overnight (See Notes!)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups Almond Milk (I use Califia Farms)
  • 2 Tbsps Agave (See Notes!)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsps organic rolled oats, GF (I use Bob's Red Mill)

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (adding the wet ingredients first, followed by the remaining ingredients) and blend until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. NOTE: If punch is too thick, simply add an additional 1/4 cup milk.
  • To serve, pour punch into prepared glass(es) and top with CocoWhip, sliced bananas, or melted peanut butter, if desired.
  • Sip and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • STORAGE: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly sealed or in a covered mason jar, ensuring that you drink it within the same day for best taste and consistency.
  • SOAKED CASHEWS:To best soak cashews, add 1 cup of cashews to a bowl or measuring cup and cover with cold water, sealing the top with plastic wrap and leaving it out (at room temp.) overnight. When ready to use, drain and rinse. If not able to soak overnight, simply cover cashews with boiling water and let sit for 30 minutes, drain, + rinse.
  • WHAT PLANT-BASED MILKS ARE GOOD FOR THIS RECIPE?My go-to plant-based milk is Almond milk from Califia Farms. However, you can always use your fave or one of the following: coconut milk, oat milk (froths/foams VERY WELL), flax milk, etc.
