Peanut Butter Pleasure – The Weight Loss Party Is Just Starting!
Today is National Peanut Butter Day, and you know what that means: weight loss! Oh, and sweet, salty, creamy, and crunchy goodness. “Over the top” is just how The BariatricPal Store does celebrations, and we never forget about the most important thing: weight loss. Here is an introduction to, and some of our picks for, using PB2 Peanut Butter Powder from The BariatricPal Store.
Low-Calorie Peanut Butter?
Peanut butter lovers: rejoice! No longer does a single serving of peanut butter provide half a meal’s worth of calories! PB2 Peanut Butter Powder has only one-quarter the calories as the full-fat stuff, and it has 85% fewer fat calories!
Each 2-tablespoon serving has:
- 45 calories
- 5 grams of protein
- 2 grams of dietary fiber
- 5 grams of total fat
PB2 Peanut Butter Powder is all-natural, gluten-free, and made from real peanuts.
From Powder to Peanut Butter
All you have to do to get a thick, creamy, peanut butter spread is mix your PB2 Peanut Butter Powder with water. Mix 2 tablespoons of powder with 2 tablespoons of water, and your peanut butter is ready to use or eat. Use it as a spread or dip just as you would regular peanut butter. Try it with:
- Apples or pears.
- Celery or carrots.
- Whole-grain crackers or toast.
- Protein Pancakes.
Peanut Butter Smoothies and Shakes
Smoothies and shakes are so easy to make, so delicious, and such a great opportunity for adding extra superfoods to your diet – think blueberries, kale, and avocado, for example. Peanut butter has the makings of a superfood, when you consider its fiber and vitamins and minerals, but the extra calories and fat do not always fit into a weight loss program.
With PB2 Peanut Butter Powder, you can add peanutty-flavor and real peanuts to your smoothie or shake, without so many calories and so much fat. Try adding peanut butter powder – no need to mix it with water first! – to these combos.
- Chocolate Protein Shake.
- Banana, kale, and Vanilla Protein Powder
- Avocado, blueberry, and vanilla yogurt smoothie.
PB2 Peanut Butter Powder is ideal for cooking. It provides the same great taste of peanut butter, but it is not so difficult to use. You can just add it to recipes without worrying about thinning it down or struggling with the stickiness of peanut butter. Try it in:
- Thai-inspired noodle dishes made with Protein Pasta or zoodles.
- Oatmeal breakfast bars baked with Brown Sugar Protein Oatmeal, cinnamon, and egg whites.
- Dressing, along with oil, lime juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce, for a chicken salad with shredded cabbage, diced onion and cilantro, and edamame.

You can get PB2 Peanut Butter Powder in a 6.5-ounce jar with 15 servings, or choose the larger 16-ounce jar with 36 servings. PB2 Peanut Butter Powder comes in the original flavor, or you can choose Chocolate PB2 with real cocoa powder.
