This Vegan Peanut Punch is very kid-friendly and tasty that even the pickiest of eaters will definitely love it. Use freshly roasted peanuts without added salt. 

This rich and creamy drink will definitely be a hit, it reminds me so much of home when my mom would grow peanut in the garden and roast them, they were such a delicious treat. To this day peanut is a family favorite of ours, I include peanut as a flavor in my recipes, Vegan Peanut Butter Pie, Peanut Noodles Recipe, Maca Peanut Butter Smoothie. 

Easy Peanut Punch

Vegan Peanut Punch

Traditional peanut punch is made with condensed milk, to make a vegan version of peanut punch I substituted it with coconut milk and sweetener. Normally freshly roasted peanuts are used, the peanut is blended with water then strained. The pulp is discarded are given to feed chickens.

I have seen peanut punch recipes that included oats, Angostura Bitters, Irish moss, and alcohol but my recipe is very simple, kid-friendly, and easy to prepare using pantry staples. Feel free to substitute the maple syrup with your favorite sweetener whether it be cane sugar, coconut sugar, agave, etc.

Last-minute, I decided to add a banana to make it even more rich and creamy and it was so yummy.
