Let me start by saying, I LOVE PB2.
Last time Colton and his mom went to Sam’s, they bought me the biggest jar I had seen &&&& I could have cried ha!
PB2 which stands for powdered peanut butter is a peanut butter substitute. It has 85% less fat & calories than regular peanut butter.
How it works
Take 2 tablespoons of PB2 & mix it with 1 tablespoon of water to get the creamy peanut butter consistency.
PB2: 45 (calories) & 1.5g (fat) in 2 tablespoons
Peanut Butter: 190 (calories) & 16g (fat) in 2 tablespoons
TALK ABOUT A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
Pb2 has been a staple in my pantry for the past few years. I put it in everything from my oatmeal, to smoothies (like in this one!), when baking peanut butter cookies, I put it on toast, in stir fry….you guys get the picture. I’m not kidding when I say everything. It’s a great substitute when you are trying to cut back on calories and fat. Of course it doesn’t taste just like peanut butter, but its close!
Now taking a step back, in reality, the best peanut butter substitute is 100% almond butter. It has all of the healthy fats our bodies need. I eat almond butter everyday. My point with PB2 is, like I said above, I use it for daily recipes to cut back in certain areas of my diet. When you’re trying to cut back and make small changes, PB2 is a great option. For example, if I didn’t use PB2 in my green morning smoothie, it would take its nutrition from 244 calories, to 434 calories.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Anyways my rant is over. Check out PB2 for yourself and let me know what you think of it! My favorite is the dark chocolate flavor!
