Today I found something AMAZING at the grocery store. I mean it blows my mind, how did I not know about this product?! Brent was looking in the health food aisle of our local Hy-Vee for some 'low fat' peanut butter. He is on a low-cholesterol diet and high fat items are the enemy in our household. I spotted an unusual jar of 'powdered peanut butter', PB2. Basically, they squeezed out the oil from the peanuts added a bit of sugar and salt. 2 tbsp of powder and 1 tbsp of water, mix and then you have creamy, delicious peanut butter. IT IS SO GOOD. Here is the kicker. My Trader Joe's all natural (the only way I like it) PB has 140 calories and 16 grams of fat per 2 tbsp. PB2 (also all natural) has 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per 2 tbsp. Win, win! After checking out their website I learned of all sorts of recipes for PB2 and a sister product Chocolate PB2 (chocolate and PB, yum!). Add to smoothies, roll bananas in the powder, use it for Asian dishes, etc.. I REALLY hope you try this product and love it as much as we do.
