Falling in Love with Peanut Butter All Over Again. PB2 = YUM. Review and Giveaway

on August 31, 2012


PB2 you either love it…..or you have no idea what I am talking about.  

I have a few friends that have been using PB2 for years so I am a little late to the party.  But in this case it is truly better late than never.  Bell Plantaion’s PB2 is a great healthy alternative to the traditional Peanut Butter you find at the grocery store.  It’s slow roasted peanuts that are pressed to remove fat and oil.  The result is powdered peanut butter that has 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter.  It comes in PB2 original and PB2 chocolate.  Yes that’s right I said chocolate….YUM!  For me peanut butter is way up there on my “I LOVE IT”  list.  So I was super excited when Bell Plantation sent me a jar each of PB2 and PB2 chocolate along with 2 bags of PB thins to give them a try. 

I couldn’t have been more pleased.  These are awesome!

There are lots of ways to use PB2, here are two of my favorites.

PB2 chocolate protein shake:

8 oz unsweetened almond milk

1 cup of frozen dark cherries

2 T  PB2 chocolate

1 cup of spinach

Greek yogurt and PB2

The second way is mixing it with in greek yogurt  along with a handful of slivered almonds.  Easy peasy.

I have also mixed PB2 with a little water to create a traditional peanut butter spread for my PB&J.  Here is a link to the PB2 website recipe page for more great ideas.   They have recipes for everything from entrée’s to desserts!  And my favorite sections NO Bake and Kid-friendly.

PB Thins

The PB2 thins were a great “go to” snack to throw in my backpack when we were on the go this summer.  They have a great peanut taste!
