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?

    PB2 actually changed my life. I’m so glad you finally got it! 🙂 I always do an apple and PB2! Then I’ll throw the PB2 into my protein shakes! I make some chocolate chip PB2 cookie dough balls, too. It’s so versatile and there are tons of recipes on their website 😀

    At the beginning of each week I make an instant breakfast mix to use at work. Lately I’ve been adding PB2 and chocolate chips to the mix – hard to go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate! I actually don’t buy it for the low fat, I just like having peanut butter in a powder form.
