Have you ever heard of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter? No? Don’t worry, it’s not too well known, and although I’d heard a little about it, I didn’t pay it much attention. I mean, the claims are that this powdered peanut butter concoction, with only 45 calories per serving, was……like……I dunno….peanut butter. Pshaw!
So one day last week I was on Amazon buying some CLICK Espresso Protein Drink (get ya some!) and you know how at the bottom it says, if you like this, you might also like this? And there was PB2. Right there. So I clicked it, added it to my cart, and checked out. Two days later (thank you Amazon Prime!) it was on my doorstep. Intrigued, right away I tore open the box, twisted off the lid, and stuck my finger in the powder. It’s like dust – really fine. And then I tasted it. Yeah, not so good that way.
But I still had hope.
I read the directions, added some water, stirred it up, and well, it was like reconstituted peanut butter. Not exactly the organic, all natural, chunky, OMG you have to stir it until you biceps burn stuff I buy at Whole Foods (which I love btw), but it was peanut butter-ish.
So, I don’t recommend you make sandwiches with it and try to pass it off on your kids….but, it works great in recipes! Like smoothies, and baked goods, and PB2 Slow Cooker Thai Chicken!!
