If you love peanut butter – its taste and texture, but not the fat and calorie profile – you must check out PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter from Bell Plantation.

Powdered peanut butter? I know, I was skeptical too. But then I saw it endorsed in CSPI’s Nutrition Action Healthletter, so I gave it a shot. And folks, rest assured: this is no astronaut food.

By pressing slow roasted peanuts – PB2 ends up with 85% less fat and calories than traditional peanut butter.  You simply mix 2 Tbsp of PB2 with 1 Tbsp of water. Stir until smooth. Voilà!

It’s PB, but without the pain in the B of those extra calories…

I bet you’re wondering: does 85% less fat and calories mean 85% less nutrition?

Quite the opposite: in a 2 Tbsp serving you get:

  • 45 calories
  • 1.5 grams of fat
  • 0 g saturated fat
  • 94 mg sodium
  • 5 g total carbohydrate
  • 2 g dietary fiber
  • 1 g sugar
  • 5 g protein

That’s the same amount of fiber you get in a 200 calorie 2 Tbsp dollop of the real thing. Not bad for something that looks, tastes and feels like real peanut butter!

So branch out of your peanut butter safety zone, and get on board with powdered peanut butter. You can purchase PB2 from Amazon or direct from the company.
