I first heard of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter when I was looking for a thai recipe to make for my hubby for our anniversary. I found a yummy recipe for thai chicken with peanut sauce on a low calorie recipes website and it turned out really good. At the time I didn’t know that PB2 with chocolate is also available! You can use PB2 just like regular peanut butter by mixing it with water but it’s also really fun to try in different recipes. The awesome thing about it is that it’s only 45 calories per serving compared to 190 calories per serving of traditional peanut butter which also contains 3 grams of saturated fat to PB2’s ZERO grams.
PB2 is made with high quality slow roasted peanuts which are cold pressed to remove the fat and oil. The chocolate variety is blended with the finest cocoa beans to add a rich chocolate flavor. Both are all natural, gluten-free and do not contain any preservatives or added hydrogenated oils. It’s easy to make the switch because PB2 tastes great! This week I tried a couple of new things using PB2, both of them perfect for New Year’s healthy eating resolutions. The first thing I tried was a recipe I found on the PB2 website Just slice a banana into rounds and pop into the freezer for a little while. Take them out and toss them in PB2 to coat. Pre-heat a frying pan, then heat your bananas for a few seconds on each side. Plate and drizzle with honey. This tastes like a delicious ice cream dessert but it’s totally healthy! My kids really liked it too. Just make sure you don’t heat your bananas for too long or they will turn to mush. Also be careful that the powdered peanut butter doesn’t burn. If you put too much on and it doesn’t stick to your banana very well it seems like it burns pretty fast.
The easiest way for me to “eat” healthy is by making smoothies. Sneaking spinach into them just adds a green color but doesn’t seem to change the flavor, especially when you use bananas. I don’t have an exact recipe for you here because I always just toss things into the blender. This time I used 2 small bananas, a Solo cup of ice, about a cup of vanilla greek yogurt, a handful of baby spinach, a few tablespoons of powdered PB2 with chocolate and enough milk to make it the consistency that I wanted. It came out SO good!
PB2 sells for around $4 a bottle. Depending on how it’s mixed, each jar is approximately equivalent to an 18 ounce jar of regular peanut butter. This price seems very reasonable to me in comparison with other peanut butter products. I definitely recommend PB2! If you’ve tried it, I’d love to hear how you use it! I know there are lots of ways it can be used and I’m anxious to explore a little more! I’m thinking peanut butter wheat waffles sound good…
