Can someone explain PB powder, how you use it, benefits, etc?



Recommended Posts

Keep hearing about people using PB powder, I see it all over the shelves now but quite frankly, I'm confused.

What are the benefits? How are you using it? Thanks!

I add it to my chocolate Protein Shake. I've mixed it with Water to make into a Peanut Butter consistently-- it's good, but doesn't keep well. I couldn't be bothered whipping up a little each time I got a craving for Peanut butter. So I mainly use it as an add in to stuff now. I've tried it in yogurt, and oatmeal-- I don't love it or hate it that way.

It is powdered Peanut Butter. For me, the benefits are taste and Protein with minimal calories.

I have added it to pudding, Greek yogurt, and oatmeal.

I just like the way it tastes in it's own. (I'm weird). I'll put a small spoonful in my mouth and it takes several minutes for me to get it down, all while enjoying powdery peanutbutteriness. You get all the peanut flavor, but none of the creamy mouth-feel.

I like the chocolate flavor PB powder. I put it in my Protein Shakes, but I really do like to just eat a spoonful. It's much tastier than regular without chocolate.

I don't like that when they take the fat out they add sugar. I used to use it a bit, mixed with Greek yogurt as a dip or sprinkled in oatmeal or a Protein shake... Now I just use real no sugar added Peanut Butter or Syntrax matrix PB Cookie Protein Powder

I use it to make Peanut Butter. I do not eat the PB2 brand because they add sugar. Removing fat and adding sugar is terrible.

I can keep the powder in the house and not touch it, but Peanut Butter is too tempting and I will have spoonfuls. Not worth having in the house.

There really is no benefit......for me, at least.

Flavor isn't that great nor are the macros.

It's just another food that isn't really all that in line with what my goals currently are.

I use powdered Peanut Butter, but not PB2. I use a brand called Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter Powder which is available at Whole Foods. The only ingredient is crushed organic peanuts - no other additives. I use it in my morning Protein drink:

1/2 banana

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/4 Cup PB Powder

Cinnamon

This Breakfast has 176 calories and 10.4g of Protein.< /p>

And this drink is absolutely delicious! This recipe is on the bag, although they call for a full banana, I only use a half.

Right now when I do use it, I use Jiff powdered Peanut Butter because the only ingredient is peanuts. I bought the PB2 and PB2+chocolate for the kids. They make it and use it on things like toast, Bagels and for dipping fruit into.

      Hi guys I'm so glad I found this page.  I'm having VSG this spring and could use all the support I can get!!!
      I'm documenting my journey on youtube, if you are interested in supporting and following my journey click the link posted. 
      I'm trying to find support groups and do this journey via youtube because my family is super small and close minded so I  literally have my husband and children's support only.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
