Okay, so I found a really cool store that sells all kinds of healthy low calorie, high fibre foods and bought a jar of PB2. Now what? It smells great and I want to incorporate it in stuff, but I need ideas. Help!!

I love it on rice cakes or I dip a banana in it. I simply cannot live without mine! You might want to do a search on the message boards for "PB2" because I've seen some neat ideas on earlier posts. Whoever invented it is a genius! Enjoy! :)

Well....you asked.....



I would throw it in the garbage.

How do you take a wonderful food like peanuts and take out all the good parts and then make it into some bionic powder?

And, more to the point, WHY?????????

Peanut butter is nutritious and delicious and full of minerals your body can use. What IS powdered, low fat, low cal peanut stuff?

What's wrong with wanting a peanut taste without all the calories from peanut butter added into some of the above-mentioned foods?

The taste from PB2 isn't even that bad, imo. You're just grouchy.

I mix it with water and eat it straight...but that's just me. But...to be more normal....I also:

--mix with water to make 2T (instructions explain) and put on sweet potatoe
--put in shakes
--mix with vanilla yogurt
--mix into oatmeal
--mix with guac and water and spread on bagel (don't knock it till you try it)
--by complete accident I put it on my grilled chicken....it was AWESOME
--spread on any kind of fruit

I make a pb/fruit roll up.

flatout bread ( like a tortilla )
2 tbsp PB2 mixed according to directions
Strawberries or Blueberries ( slice strawberries )
Sprinkle of cinnamon

Spread PB2 on flatout bread. Add fruit and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up and cut into pinwheel slices. Enjoy!

I agree. Look for a natural peanut butter with no added sugar or oils. PB2 has added sugar to make up for whatever the hell they do to it.

If your doing anything with peanuts, I don't think you're really that concerned with nutrient dense foods. Peanuts are to nuts as bottom feeders are to the ocean. Let them have they're low cal garbage.

That 1g of sugar per serving is a killer. X_x

I have recipes for oatmeal pancakes and super skinny peanut butter pie for PB2. I also add it in with normal pancake batter for peanut butter pancakes.

Oatmeal Pancakes: 1 banana, 1/3 egg whites or liquid egg (or 2 eggs for more calories), 2 tablespoons PB2, cinnamon, blueberries, 1/2 rolled oats

Mash the bananas up as much as possible. Then, add in the oats, egg, PB2 and cinnamon (add cinnamon to your preference...they are a bit bland without it). Stir well and then add in blueberries. I usually use 50 grams or 1/2 of those little containers. Mix in the blueberries and scoop onto a griddle to cook like normal pancakes. They will take a little longer, but bubble up the same and then flip and cook the other side. Should make 2-3 pancakes depending on how large you make them. Calorie counts is approx 350 with 63 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fat, 21 grams of protein and >250 grams of sodium. They are great and keep me full for hours...plus only take about 10 minutes to make.

Skinny Peanut Butter Pie: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/02/skinny-no-bake-peanut-butter-pie.html

I follow the above recipe but replace the better n peanut butter with PB2 (same amount) and I did 8 oz of cream cheese which made it more filling. If you follow the rest of the recipe, I think you get 6 slices for 90ish calories a slice by using PB2 instead. The pie turned out AMAZING and even my husband couldn't tell it was "skinny".

WHY??? do you care what anyone else eats? Mellow out. I think everyone knows that peanut butter is yummy and good for you, but obviously it is very high in fat and calories. PB2 is a good option for people trying to lose weight.

For the OP, check out Bell Plantation's site for lots of recipes:

I bought PB2 because I love peanut butter in my oatmeal, but didn't want all the extra calories. :-)

I thought PB2 was just peanuts pressed to remove the oil, resulting in a powder instead of a butter. Nothing else added.

...it's not really fake food...

Just thought I would chime in, but I don't really have any recipe suggestions :P
I used to eat it sometimes and it's best when you want PB taste but don't need the texture to be spot on (smoothies, soups, basically as an ingredient for something else).

But I like normal peanut butter better and I find it more filling because of the fats. I might consider getting PB2 if I find myself making more milkshake type things in the summer ;)
