I recently purchased the Bell Plantation powdered peanut butter. I had really high hopes for it as so many people here love it. My jar of PB2 tastes more like whey protein than PB. I mixed it with milk and yogurt (separately) but had no luck, and at $7 a jar, I really want to make it work. Help please!!! :P

Hey KAB...One of my favorite recipes to use PB 2 in is a chicken Thai stirfry dish.


Just take about a lbs of chicken (dark or white meat) and dice and saute in a little olive oil. Add about a tsp of minced garlic, stirfy veggies, 1/8 cup lite soy sauce, 1/2 onion either diced or strips, and add a couple of tablespoons of PB 2 to the mix. It gives it such a nice flavor.


I also use PB 2 in a lot of my protein shakes.


Hope this helps

i use it in my protein shakes...that's all i really use it for, but it bumps up my protein shakes to 30g and helps me get in the protein i need each day. it does need to be stirred several times before i finish it, or it'll settle to the bottom; i've been using it for several months and appreciate the peanut butter flavor in my shakes.

I also use the powder in my steel cut oats. I make up a big batch of them and freeze in serving sized dishes. I take them out the night prior to using and add the powder, raisins, chopped dates, etc.

I don't think addinging it to milk or plain yoghurt would taste that good. When I do add it to protein shakes I add splendra. I don't think PB2 contains any sweetener so it's just peanut powder. Since PB2 is defatted peanut dust it's not going to taste all that great by itself. As they say fat is where the flavor is! My sister who is not banded spreads jam on a piece of bread and then sprinkles PB2 on the jelly. She thinks it's okay I've never tried it that way.

Love the stuff! I throw it in the blender with ice, protein and almond or soy milk and blend. Tastes like a pb milkshake.

I can't eat it like regular PB but I do like to mix it in things. I really like it stirred into vanilla yogurt. I use about 3 TBL and it makes it thick and tastes like a mousse.
