Today’s product review of Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is something that both of us have already been using regularly. Unlike a product we are testing for the first time, this was something we already knew we liked and were excited to review! Better yet, we are excited to be able to host a giveaway and share with you!
So what is PB2? When I first heard about PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter I heard that it was much lower in fat (85% less) and calories than traditional peanut butter. This set off alarms in my mind that this was going to be your typical overly-processed “diet” food. Wrong! PB2 reduces fat through a chemical-free process and is all natural, preservative-free and contains no artificial sweeteners. I am an ingredient reader and this passes the test: roasted peanuts, sugar (only 1 gram) and salt.
While I love clean products with short ingredient lists, the most amazing part about PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is that it tastes great! You can use it a bunch of different ways. A few of the ways we have tried include:
Reconstituted as “regular” peanut butter. I have met several people who think it won’t hold up as a “regular” peanut butter, but it really does. Make sure to follow the instructions and the consistency is great.
Reconstituted as a fruit dip. I mix this up with a slightly thinner consistency than recommended and dip fruit in it. My favorites are apple slices and banana.
Along the lines of a fruit dip, we have both used it to drizzle over the top of things. Try fruit, oatmeal, etc. My mom slices bananas, drizzles PB2 and freezes it. It is a fabulous guilt-free dessert!
Put in shakes or smoothies. I have used PB2 in both chocolate and vanilla protein shakes. All I can say is YUM! It actually mixes in better than traditional peanut butter.
Most recently, my mom made peanut butter cookies with PB2. She made a batch with PB2 and a batch with traditional peanut butter and made me have a “taste test.” The PB2 cookies tasted better! They were more moist and chewy.
Finally, I will share (while slightly embarrassed) my most unusual use of PB2 powdered peanut butter. My dog loves it! If you do not have a dog, you will probably think I have lost my mind. But if you are a dog lover and have ever given them peanut butter or peanut butter flavored treats, you know they go nuts over it. PB2 works great for putting into Kong type dog toys. My mom even freezes it to make it take longer for the dogs to eat.
