I love this stuff!!! Have been using it for a couple years. Have always liked peanut butter but rarely eat it because of the calories. So, this works for me. Lately, have been mixing up a two serving batch (you mix what you're going to use as you go) and then just dipping celery stalks in it. I have put it in smoothies and am presently trying different recipes with a packet of dry oatmeal, PB2 and raisins or chopped nuts and a little SF chocolate syrup. Don't have anything really perfected yet. This is the website I've been getting it thru, DrVita.com Have ordered twice with them and they're very reliable, free shipping! It was $8.77 for a 1 lb bag which come in one of those kind of freeze dried bags. I put mine in mason jars and keep in the refrigerator. You can also freeze it. Also, the chocolate PB2 is good. If you search Pinterest...many have posted recipes they use it in.

I've never heard of it either, but will now look for it in stores. The 45-calories per serving is much better than the 190 calories per serving of the peanut butter I eat now. Wow!

Very good!! I just had some with apple slices... Not exactly JIF but it is still really good and I will definitely try the chocolate version as well. I am excited I can have more pb now without all the calories =)

Nope, there are somethings I just can't switch too and that would be one of them....I wonder what they will think of next. I have never seen this in Canada

I just heard about this in a recipe I decided to try today but will be using actual peanut butter since I don't have any. I still don't mind having *whole* peanut butter in my diet because of the healthy fats but it'd be nice to have on hand for recipes where calories/fat count in order to fit it into my calorie range. I don't know if they sell it in Canada, I've never seen it.

I've been using it for at least 4 years. I put it in hummus instead of tahini. It reduces the calories dramatically which has the simple result that I can eat more hummus, which I love!
It doesn't taste exactly like peanut butter, it has it's own unique taste. The texture is perfectly spreadable but not the same as peanut butter (when mixed with water - you can also use it in its powder form in baking and recipes). I use it as a substitute for peanut butter and other nut and seed butters in recipes.

never heard of it but it sounds like one more processed food we don't need.
I've heard a lot of people rave about it,but I haven't tried it myself yet.There is no where near me that sells it,and it's not really something I'll buy on-line.So,hoping that when Trader Joes is built by me...I'll look for it.
Something about powdered peanut butter that sounds very wrong!!!! Lol

I saw it at Wegman's last week, but did not purchase it........I did not know enough about it at the time. But from researching it online, it definitely sounds like something I would like to try.
Here is what I found: 85% of the fat calories are removed through a process of first roasting the peanuts and then pressing them to remove the fat and oil. 2 Tbsp has 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat, 5 g of protein, 1g sugar and 94mg of sodium.
I have read some really good things about it on forums regarding taste. Many people put it into protein shakes/smoothies. Others add the water and put it onto sliced apples, rice cakes, etc. Some people do not like the fact that there is sugar and salt added, so if natural is what you are looking for, this is not it.
They also have a PB2 chocolate, which had some good reviews also.......
BTW, I ended up purchasing the Bee's Knees peanut butter from Whole Foods.....it is good, however it is high in calories and fat.......I use it sparingly, so it may be awhile before I can try the PB2.
Please keep us posted if you do decide to try it!
