A new/old favorite: PB2 and why I love it

Yum.

Yum.

So if you’ve never heard of it, PB2 is basically peanut butter in powdered form, but with a lot of the fat and calories taken out. It comes in two flavors, Regular and Chocolate. Yes, I said it, Chocolate. And kids, it really does taste like peanut butter and chocolate.

Here’s the nutritional info:

Compare it to regular Jif Natural peanut butter:

PB2 vs. Jif: a nutritional comparison

If you love peanut butter like I love peanut butter but are trying to watch your caloric and fat intakes, consider getting a jar of this stuff. It used to be that I had to order it online only through bellplantation.com (and you still can order it there plus view their recipes), but now my local stores like HEB and Wal Mart are stocking PB2. I never thought they would, but miracle of all miracles, it happened.

PB2 works very well on its own (just had a sandwich with the chocolate flavor and I was in heaven, y’all), or it works just as well in shakes. Shakeology, protein shakes, heck even milkshakes, PB2 adds a nice nutty flavor to them all. And, it’s easy to mix into the shakes. I always hated having to clean out my blender because regular peanut butter would just stick to the sides. Annoy-ing. Since it’s in powder form, PB2 does not have this same issue.

So if you’re looking for healthy snack ideas, consider PB2.
