Powdered peanut butter? Or Powdered chocolate flavored peanut butter?! Sounds like space food right? Or maybe like something you take on a camping trip?
Well it’s not! It’s this amazing powdery goodness that allows you to make everything taste instantly better. Remember those idiotic Sensa weight loss commercials? You know, the ones where they’re shaking, more like dumping powdered random stuff into their food and prancing around? Ya, it’s like that kinda idea except it tastes amaaaaazing. And you don’t have to do a stupid dance.
Why we like it
It gives us the rich and filling taste of a peanut butter without all the added fat. Yes, we recognize the important role healthy fats play in our diets, but some days, those fats are just gonna send us over our caloric goal. So we choose PB2 as our alternative. You get the same amount of peanut butter taste for ¼ of the calories. The company has also confirmed they are GMO free. How awesome is that?
What we do with it
EVERYTHING. Technically, you’re supposed to add water to reconstitute and make it spread like peanut butter. But we prefer real nut butters for spreads and use our PB2 as more of a sprinkle topping. We like to mix it into our plain greek yogurt and top it off with some delicious frozen berries. It tastes like a treat but it’s definitely a healthy snack in disguise. We also add it to our smoothies to give them that creamy nutty taste. And it even makes that plain oatmeal come alive and thicken up.. if you like that kinda thing.
Definitely one of our top lifesavers on those days we wanna take a spoon to the jar! We have 2 words of caution and these may or may not have been real life scenarios. Number 1, don’t get half way through the jar and think, ‘let me just add the water straight to the jar, mix, and store so I don’t have to mix later on’. Flavor is uh, inhibited and the longer you let it sit there in water and we’re talking over day periods, the worse the situation gets. Number 2, thinking PB2 is a good travel friendly carry on snack at the airport? You may be next in line for further TSA questioning. After telling them what the powdered like substance in which PB2 actually is, Ally was free to continue on her traveling journey #allaboutthatpeanutbutter.
Have you tried PB2? What do you put it on?!
