Have you heard of PB2? It's a new discovery for me and I am loving it!
PB2 is dry peanut butter; basically, peanut butter with the fat removed. It is a dry powder you can use as is or mix with water and use in some recipes that call for peanut butter. The advantage is fewer calories; one tablespoon has ony 45 calories. I find it really does taste like peanuts, but does not have the creamy mouthfeel of regualr peanut butter when mixed with water. I've been using it to make a breakfast smoothie that keeps me full until lunch.
Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
1 c. chocolate almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt
2 T. PB2
1 small banana (or half a large banana)
Combine in blender and drink.
The PB+J variantion is to skip the yogurt and add 1 cup of fresh or frozen (unsweetened) berries instead.
I buy my PB2 at a Mrs. Green's Natural Market, however, I don't think they are a national chain. You can also buy it from Amazon.com. And there are lots of recipes for using PB2 on the internet.
