I love it and can not live without it!

I would eat it on everything and even have chips on my sandwiches with it LOL

Our family goes through one large jar a week of Skippy Natural PB

Used to be a jiff kid, but with the bad ingredients, we switched to skippy.. Just found how to make it myself and all I need is peanut oil.. but not sure if peanut oil is the good kind or the bad kind yet.. I have to do my research before making it..

also how do you make the grilled PB sandwiches.. the closest I came was with in the toaster LOLOL

I also love putting chia seeds on my PB as well

I absolutely love PB2! It has 3 ingredients (peanuts/salt/sugar, 4 if you include the chocolate kind which has cocoa powder). And no, it's not laden with sugar to replace what's "missing", it only has 1-3g per 2 tbsp.

Sure regular peanut butter has good healthy fats, but, if your trying to stay in a calorie budget, love of peanut butter doesn't have to break it. And it isn't like this is processed "diet" food, they just extract the oil and you can mix it with whatever liquid you choose or sprinkle it on things.

You can buy it from their website, but the smallest quantity is 4 jars at $3.99/jar. Or you can buy it off of Netrition, single jars for $3.99, they also have larger size bags and cases if you are so inclined and they do have international shipping for those having issues getting it where you live.

I'm so glad I saw this thread! I had forgotten that I had seen this product on TV a while back. My husband and I love to camp and backpack and this stuff would be perfect for that. I just ordered some! (I live in Canada and I have yet to see it in the stores around here.)

If there is a Meijer in your area, they carry a store brand that's peanuts only. It's much less expensive than the brands you find in health food stores. Don't be afraid of healthy fats. Your body needs some fat. Fatty compounds must be present in the intestines for fat soluble vitamins are A, D, E and K to be absorbed. The essential fatty acids are thought to be involved in many of the body's metabolic processes. They promote the availability of calcium and phosphorous to the cells and help form the fat-containing portion of every cell's structure.

I agree with DragonChilde. I love peanut butter! I've tried almond butter. It tastes different, but it's really good. I also tried the all natural peanut butter, and if I'm not mistaken, it has less fat. But it is the good kind of fat, so it's not bad for you. It's not like having a piece of bacon!! emoticon

Oh, peanut butter! Don't get me started... left to my own wild 'n' crazy devices, I could sit in front of the tube (or even the YouTube) and enjoy spoonful after spoonful, right out of the jar (and happily designate the container mine, all mine, for hygienic purposes...)

It's dreamy stuff!

thanks for the tip... I LOVE PB! I only allow myself to eat it on days when I am planning to run more than 8 miles due to the high calorie and fat contents. I am going on a hunt for the powder tomorrow! Grilled PB & Banana wraps just may return to my menu! emoticon

I love peanut butter. I measure my portion sizet so I know I'm using 1 T at a time. Those healthy fats are a plus for me and I enjoy the texture. It keeps me full for a long time and I'm keeping my energy going.

I love Peanut Butter.

I get Giant Brand all natural peaunut butter. It contains two ingredients, peanuts and salt. It is a store brand so it is only a couple dollars.

i use krema. The only ingredient is peanuts. No added oil, no added sugar. may be a little higher in fat since it is just peanuts but at least I don't have additives and preservatives

I also make my own. Easy with a vitamix.

I got mine at my local grocery store for about $6 for a jar that contains about 32 tablespoons. Amazon carries it as well for about that same price. I don't know where in Canada would have it though...

Yes there is some sugar in it, but also keep in mind that unless you are making your own homemade peanut butter or search out one with only peanuts and salt (which is a challenge...Ive done it), traditional peanut butter has just as much sugar in it too.

It is all a balancing act. That is why there are choices...every food has its positives and negatives (yes, even vegetables and fruits, and they are all nutritional positives and negatives), we have to figure out when the good out weighs the bad, which can be a challenge as that is a more individual decision, one that will never be the same for everyone. Unfortunately, as much as we would like it to be, eating isnt black and white...lots of grey in there too. :-)

I love peanut butter and lately have been eating a ton of it. I've heard of PB2 and would love to get some. I don't mind the fat from peanut butter because it's mostly healthy fats, but I would love to be able to enjoy it more often without racking up my fat intake for the day. I just cannot seem to find it and don't even know if they sell it here in Canada. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled. Maybe check out some health and nutrition stores. What's the cost like?

Just be aware that you're using a product where they've removed one of the healthy nutrients and replaced it with sugar. That's all right if you're using it as an occasional treat-- it's still high in protein and healthier than most snacks. But think twice about replacing regular peanut butter with this all the time. Ask yourself if you're getting enough monounsaturated fats from other foods, and whether you're trimming out other sources of sugar to make room for the peanut powder.

You can also get plain defatted peanut flour for a teeny fraction of the price and add your own salt and sugar so you're more in control and aware of what's in it. It's usually less than $5 per pound, and that pound is all peanut flour; you're not paying $1.30 an ounce for sugar and salt.

I hadn't thought to use it as a sauce for pancakes...I'll have to try that. I usually use yogurt, but this sounds like a good change of pace. Or even mixed into the yogurt...

I like PB2 to mix with a frozen banana for "ice cream." Or to flavor oatmeal or a smoothie. Otherwise, I prefer the real stuff.

I use PB2 (and chocolate PB2) all the time. I love real peanut butter as well, but this is a great alternative when you want PB but don't have enough calories left in your day. I also mix it w/ water and then drizzle it on my protein pancakes as a sauce or syrup.

For the people knocking it, it's not one of those crappy "diet" foods that are marketed to uneducated consumers. It's actually very popular in the fitness industry, and is really a great alternative.

PB2 has a chocolate version of powdered peanut butter that is pretty good. I like to have it on a rice cake or something else low cal when I'm craving chocolate and don't have a whole lot of calories to spare. Mixing it extra runny and then drizzling it over a cup or two of popcorn is pretty good as well.

I'd never heard of such a thing before, but a quick google search shows there are actually several brands.

I understand it might be handy for people who like adding peanut butter flavour to a smoothie.

But I am not sure I would care for it straight-up. I tend to prefer "smaller portions of whole/real ingredients" than larger portions of "modified/diet-ized" products. But - that's personal preference. If it works for you - great!

Peanut butter may have fat in it, but it's the *healthy* fat your body needs to function. :) I know it seems not good for you, but for the amount of nutrition it packs, it's a superb way to get the protein, healthy fat, and other stuff you need to function. Nothing sticks to my ribs the way PB does!

I discovered a great product called Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter! It contains organic peanuts, organic coconut sugar and sea salt and is only 45 calories for 2 tablespoons! They extract the fat from it and create this powder that you reconstitute with just a dab of water. I got mine at Market of Choice and it runs almost $8.00, but it lasts quite a long time and well worth it. Tastes great!
Wanted to share because I love peanut butter with apples or celery, but at 190 calories (mostly fat) for 2 tablespoons I would rarely indulge.
