PB2 – Awesome Alternative to Peanut Butter

PB2

Contains: powdered peanut butter (85% less fat calories than regular peanut butter, according to the product label)

Description: This is a product that I discovered within the last few months. It caught my eye in a health food store because I have always loved peanut butter, and was curious as to what this healthy alternative was all about. In the past I had loved and eaten peanut butter but because I would consume so many calories with just a spoonful, it didn’t feel like I got to enjoy all of those calories. With this powdered peanut butter, you still get a rich, nutty and fulfilling taste without all of the calories. There are also no additives (according to this product label) in PB2, so you can feel good about eating it. If you want something a bit more decadent, yet still a healthier alternative, PB2 makes a version that contains cacao powder, giving it a chocolately background. You could also add your own cacao powder when mixing your PB2 to do it yourself!

How to Use: This powdered peanut butter can virtually be used to replace your regular peanut butter in your diet. To make a “butter” out of it, I mix it with a few tablespoons of almond milk (I had to guess and check with the right amount. Start with just a little bit of milk and you can always add more). Then add a drop or two of liquid stevia to add natural sweetness. You could also use organic agave nectar, or your favorite sweetener.

Purchase: I purchased my first jar of this at an H.E.B. Grocery store in south Texas that has a “healthy” or “organic” isle. You can also purchase it online from several various retailers, just search for it!
