I really like peanut butter. Like really, really like it. Only problem is, when you only eat about 1200 calories a day, 190 calories just doesn't seem worth it. I know it is healthy fat but seriously, I'm not spending 1/6th of my calories on 2 tablespoons of the stuff. Enter PB2.
This is peanut butter powder and 2 tablespoons of the stuff is only 45 calories. It is made by roasting the peanuts and then smashing most of the oil out of them and grinding them into a powder.
I love that there are only three ingredients in each jar. Peanuts, sugar (1 gram per serving, I can live with that) and salt.
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that this tastes just like peanut butter. It doesn't. But, when mixed with a banana or when you dip apple slices into it, the difference won't be so noticeable. I've been eating this nearly every day for the past 2 weeks and have about finished my first bottle!
As a matter of fact, My breakfast this morning:
They also make a Chocolate pb2 that is pretty amazing in shakes and on bananas.
You can order PB2 here at bellplantation.com
*Note....I don't know anyone at Bell Plantation. I just seriously like their stuff. :)
