A reader introduced me to this product via a comment on one of my posts and I was intrigued enough to purchase some and try it for myself. I must say that I LOVE this product and am completely addicted to adding it to my smoothies! I am sure you are wondering what the heck PB2 is…
According to the producer, Bell Plantation: We call it peanut butter’s second generation because it’s unlike any peanut butter you’ve ever experienced. Through a unique process that doesn’t involve the use of any chemicals and doesn’t alter nature’s intended balance found within the peanut, we remove over 85% of the fat from premium quality peanuts. Essentially, the oil is squeezed out of roasted peanuts and what remains is our famous powdered peanut butter – all natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. When you mix water or a favorite drink with PB2 you get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter, with all the roasted peanut flavor, but 85% less fat calories. Directions:
- Mix 2 Tablespoons of PB2 with 1 Tablespoon of water and stir until smooth.
- Can be mixed directly with jelly or jam for a PB2 and jelly sandwich.
- Use your imagination with other liquids to develop your own unique flavors.
- Or, dip fruit directly into powder.
I personally enjoy adding the powder to smoothies and I have been having fun thinking about making some healthy PB cookies, cheesecakes, etc. I did try mixing the powder with water to make peanut butter and it did not fool me…it wasn’t bad, but the texture wasn’t right enough for me to want to use it that way. My final verdict is that THIS STUFF ROCKS!!! I love both the plain and chocolate PB2. To learn more about PB2 click here. Image courtesy of bellplantation.com
