What Is Plantain Punch?

Plantain punch is a milk based punch drink made with over ripe plantain, essential spices, unsweetened milk and sweeten with condensed milk.

This punch is so versatile, you can add alcohol to make it adult friendly and I will show you what my mother add to the recipe that children loves very much.

I use uncooked plantain to make by punch, however, you can also cook the plantain. I have tried making the punch with cooked plantain but I don’t like it. The punch is too thick and the plantain taste is not as strong.

Jamaican punch normally use supligen or nutriment as the “unsweetened” ingredients but I substitute for unsweetened almond milk.

Like I said before, you can add alcohol to plantain punch. Alcoholic malt like Guinness and dragon stout are what Jamaicans put in their punches. My favourite to add to plantain punch is dragon stout.

My mother add ice-cream to her plantain punch as I much say, I makes the punch better. Maybe I am bias because I love ice-cream but give it a try.

Here is the few simple ingredients you will need for this recipe!

  • Over ripe plantain: The plantain much be over ripe especially if you are using it uncooked.
  • Unsweetened milk: I used unsweetened almond milk but if you want to make it authentically Jamaican, use supligen or nutriment.

    I love plantains! Never had this punch, though my dad was Jamaican. A frozen banana will add a creamy smoothness, if you like. A touch of ginger would be nice here too… Thanks so much for the recipes!!
