Kids will love this recipe for creamy peanut butter punch flavored with vanilla and nutmeg.

It's great for children's parties or as a non-alcoholic, if a sweet, option for adult parties, for that matter. If you are adventurous, add some banana or ​chocolate or both.


  • 1 3/4 cups evaporated milk

  • 1 3/4 cups water

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter

  • Sugar, optional

  • 1 ripe, peeled banana, optional

  • A generous squeeze chocolate syrup, optional

  • Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. To a blender, add evaporated milk, water, vanilla, peanut butter, and sugar (if using). If using the optional banana and chocolate syrup, you might want to omit any optional sugar.

  3. Blend for about 10 seconds until smooth.

  4. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
