PB2: Peanut Butter Experience w/o the Guilt

12 Nov

PB2 is powdered peanut butter.  It is made with quality peanuts that are slow-roasted and then pressed to remove the fat.  You mix 2 TBSP of the powder with 1 TBSP of water and the result is peanut butter that is the texture and taste most similar to a natural peanut butter.

  

The biggest difference is in the nutrition facts.  Pictured below is the label of Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter and PB2’s nutritional label.  180 calories/12 g fat/ 2 sat. fat/ 7 g protein (Skippy) versus 45 calories/1.5 g fat/0 sat. fat/ 5 g protein (PB2) per 2 TBSP.  I have enjoyed PB2 on a PB&J, with an apple as a snack, and in banana PB oatmeal.  I would not forego buying my Skippy Reduced Fat moving forward, but I certainly am pro keeping this around.  Additionally, a chocolate PB2 flavor is available.  I encourage you to give PB2 a go.  You can find it at your local grocery store for around $5/ jar (15 servings).  I have located it at Giant Food Store as well as WholeFoods so far.  Hope you’ll enjoy it!

    Sounds like a great thing to add into my shakes instead of jus a scoop of peanut butter
