I can’t tell you how long I have been waiting for this moment.
As a whole-hearted peanut butter lover, when I heard about PB2 I knew I had to try it. I haven’t been able to find it in grocery stores and I was tempted to order it online but if I didn’t like it I didn’t want to be stuck with 42kg of the stuff. Finally I found it at a local whole foods market, The Enjoy Centre. PB2 is a powdered peanut butter, essentially a defatted peanut butter. The directions on the jar are 2 tablespoons of PB2 mixed with 1 tablespoon of water to make the original consistency of peanut butter, but you can add the powder to pretty much anything – smoothies, yogurt, protein shakes, oatmeal, pancakes, baking, or savoury sauces.
After my 5:45am spin class this morning and some stairs and leg work after class, I was more than ready to come home and enjoy some hot oatmeal with banana and PB2. I absolutely LOVE peanut butter in my oatmeal so I wasn’t sure how PB2 would compare.
Turns out it is delicious! I don’t know why I was hesitant. Any and every form of peanut butter is amazing. Once I added the almond milk to my oatmeal and mixed it with the PB2 a bit, it was heaven.
I definitely still love original natural peanut butter and my body loves the healthy fats but this powder is a cool alternative.
You now have the “Kris-Murray-PB-Approval” for PB2. You’re welcome. They also make a Chocolate PB2, uh YUM. I may need to bulk order these jars of goodness.
