Coconut Milk Nutty Punch

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Coconut Milk Nutty Punch is a favorite in our home. It’s not surprising, since this drink was a favorite growing up. Although this version of the drink differs in several ways from the original peanut punch, it is quite healthy and superbly delicious. Whole milk and toasted peanuts were the key ingredients in the original punch. It’s an easy breakfast or snack drink. Dump all ingredients and puree in your favorite blender. My personal choice of blenders is this Vitamix Models. Or any affordable blender works well too.

What are the ingredients in this Coconut Milk Nutty Punch. And is this modern interpretation classified as “Peanut Punch?”

Unlike the original version, this Coconut Milk Nutty Punch takes on an even more deliciousness. Not only that, but it is also healthier. High in fiber, protein and vitamin C are the stand out nutrition. The freshly squeezed orange juice adds a new depth of flavor to the punch. The freshly grated nutmeg plus the ground cardamom added the right balance of spices.

What’s more, the drink uses peanut butter which gives it a smoother taste and mouth feel. And the addition of toasted hazelnut enhanced the peanut butter with out overpowering the taste. Furthermore, the choice of coconut milk instead of whole milk not only makes it a bit healthier, but it’s also totally plant-based.

With all that said, is this drink still considered a modern take on the classic Guyanese Peanut Punch? Yes it is still a Peanut Punch. The main nut in the punch is Peanut Butter. However actual peanuts can be substituted. The peanut butter gives it a smoother texture and eliminates the fact that actual peanuts bring about my migraine headaches. It is weird that the butter does not do migraines. also the hazelnut made the flavor milder.
