Thanks to recommendations from others, I finally picked up some PB2! If you haven’t heard of or tried PB2 yet, it is essentially peanut butter powder with 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter. To make it a peanut butter consistency, you just add some water. (I still use natural peanut butter sometimes because I am not against having some fat in my diet, of course.)
My favorite way, so far, to use PB2 is by adding it to plain Greek yogurt. I love adding things to plain Greek yogurt instead of buying the individual cups of already flavored yogurt for two reasons:
- Unless I have coupons (in which case I do buy the individual cups), this is cheaper
– I can control what ingredients I put in: meaning no strange things I have never even heard of
I add about 1 teaspoonful of PB2 to 4 ounces of plain Greek yogurt. If you want to sweeten the yogurt, you can add honey, stevia, or sugar. It’s super creamy and almost dessert-like, but with few calories.
What are your favorite ways to use PB2?
