Kids will love this recipe for a creamy peanut butter punch flavored with vanilla and nutmeg.
It's great for children's parties or even as a non-alcoholic sweet option for adult parties. If you are adventurous, add some banana or chocolate or both.
"If you are a fan of peanut butter, you'll enjoy this drinkable version of your favorite snack. This would be fun topped off with some whipped cream and peanut butter candies, or you could spike it for an adult beverage. I would use a frozen banana and chill the evaporated milk for a creamier drink." —Tracy Wilk
1 3/4 cups evaporated milk
1 3/4 cups water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 ripe, peeled banana, optional
A generous squeeze of chocolate syrup, optional
Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish
Gather the ingredients.
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 the optional sugar.
Blend for about 10 seconds until smooth.
Garnish with grated nutmeg.
