Low Fat/low Calorie Alternative For Peanut Butter!
Members Were Sparked
If you love peanut butter, but don't like the fat and calories - you'll love "PB2". Doesn't sound good, but it is peanut butter powder, and you mix with 2 tbsp of water. It was surprisingly very good!! Only has 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per serving. Can use as a spread, or I add to chocolate protein whey, ice, and water (or almond milk) for a chocolate/peanut butter smoothie!

Talk about a healthy alternative to Peanut Butter....this comes in a powder you mix with water - no added stuff to make it bad...just natural pb powder and really good. I mix it in a protein shake for a wonderful PB vanilla protein shake . Low cal and Low fat...45 calories for 2 tbs!
1.5 grams of fat per serving....and sodium is around 94 mg...they make regular and chocolate flavored PB 2 - I did'nt care for the chocolate...but the regular is great...mix it with water and make a sandwich or add to apple slices or banana slices...they also make a low sodium version .
A "serving size" of peanut butter is 2 tablespoons. I use 4 teaspoons instead. By cutting back a little bit, and using a no-salt or low-fat peanut butter then I am saving on calories while still getting my peanut butter fix.
when i need something sweet i take low fat cool whip, with a scoop of peanut butter and mix it really good and it tastes like a peanut butter sundae :) but really low on cals and stuff. tastes good too with a few choc chips or a crushed graham cracker, or bananas. i still need my sweet fix!20
