PB2 Review

Follow Me on PinterestPin It

Anybody that know’s me, know’s my two favorite things to eat are chocolate and peanut butter.   But, with the strict controls that I place on myself and my diet in order to reach my fitness and health goals, peanut butter or chocolate just cannot play as large a part as I would like it to!  Until now, that is!!  I recently found PB2 at Wal-Mart and Kroger.  WOW!! I love this peanut butter. . .for a couple of reasons.  First, it tastes great and secondly, 2 tbsp have only 45 calories!!!!!!!  My regular natural peanut butter has 200 calories in 2 tbsp.

My PB2 Review

What is PB2? It’s a powder form of peanut butter that is MUCH  healthier for you than regular peanut butter! The jar actually states  that it has “85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter.” The  serving size is two tablespoons, and what you do is mix it with one  tablespoon of water and mix it until it’s smooth.

As I first opened the package I was a bit surprised that I immediately smelled the familiar peanut butter smell I am accustomed to.  When I first added the water to the PB2 powder I thought that there was no way possible that it was enough water.  But, as I continued to mix the powder   I was really surprised how easily it mixes with water, no clumps and no leftover powder. (experiment by adding more/less water to yield a creamier texture if that is what is preferred).  I first decided to try the PB2 Chocolate by itself.  It had a great taste and reminded me of my natural peanut butter in terms of texture, although it doesn’t quite have the stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth feels like that of regular peanut butter.  But, with the healthier aspects of PB2…I can deal with that!

When you think about  the amount of calories in regular peanut butter compared to PB2, there  is no comparison!  I just checked and in my Smuckers Natural peanut butter and it has 200  calories in 2 tablespoons! WOW!!!

How it’s made. The peanuts are slow roasted and then pressed to  remove the fats and oils. It even states on the jar that there are no  additives and it’s all natural, which is important to me since I’m so  health conscious about what I eat!

There are two flavors, regular and chocolate, and as I said earlier the chocolate tastes great.  Now that I know that I can get the peanut butter taste without  the guilt of having regular peanut butter, I’m going to start  incorporating it into my daily diet, into things like Shakeology, and  may even create some sort of healthy dessert.  My PB2 review is that it’s one amazing product that tastes great and is very healthy for you!

So, what about the ULTIMATE combination for PB2?  You all know how much I LOVE my Chocolate Shakeology!  Well, I have the ultimate Shakeology recipe that includes Chocolate PB2!  And let me tell you…it tastes unbelievable!  It’s like liquid a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup!  Best of all, since PB2 is a powder, there is no need to pull out the blender to mix it all up!  Just use your favorite shaker cup and you have a quick and mess-free healthy dessert treat!

My Chocolate PB2 Shakeology Recipe

  • 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 scoop Chocoalte Organic Raw Protein from Sun Warrior or you favorite Chocolate Whey Protein
  • 2 table spoons of Chocolate PB2 powder
  • 16 oz. of water

If you love your peanut butter but dislike the calories and fat associated with it, I would highly recommend that you try PB2!  You can order it in jars or even just a sample pack to try it out!
