Living a healthy life topped with Chocolate!

PB2

Leave a comment

On some levels, I am the worst impulse shopper.  The other day I was on Amazon searching for an ice cream maker.  I want to start making our own frozen yogurt and some how I end up looking at “Yonanas” to make banana soft serve.  I myself, have always used my mixer, but now they have a new contraption made strictly for banana soft serve.  I LOVE reading reviews and can spend a whole lot of wasted time reading reviews for produces I will never buy…. Such as the yonana… 
One review stated it was a waste and you can do the same thing in a blender (duh!), and then gave a quick recipe that called for PB2.  Holy cow what is PB2?  And like numerious times before Amazon reads my mind (please tell me it does that to you too!) and in the “what others bought” is PB2!  After spending more wasted time reading countless reviews on PB2. I purchased it… Damn Prime gets me every time… Ok it was really the chocolate PB2 🙂

What is Pb2?  Well basicly it is powdered peanut butter that has 85% less fat than regular peanut butter!  2 TBS = 45 calories, 10 fat calories, 1g total fat. 
Now you only get 15 servings in a jar so for a family this might not be a good selection, but for a person watching their weight and likes peanut butter, it is a god send! 
Chocolate and peanut butter are my weakness so it was a no brainer purchasing both jars through Amazon for $10.99. 

First thing this morning I whipped up a shake

In my BlenderBottle I added:
1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
2 TBS chocolate PB2
Almond milk to the 12oz line and shook it well.  Wowza!  It was like drinking a butterfinger!! 

Later I decided to make some peanut butter up for a taste test.

2 TBS PB2 powder
1 TBS water

It has a different texture, maybe I needed to mix it more, but it wasn’t bad.

I plan on playing around with a few more recipies, but so far, I am pretty dang happy with this Amazon impulse buy! 

Are you an impulse shopper?
