17 Delicious PB2 Recipes by Healthy Body TV

There have been many magical moments where I recall eating tablespoon after tablespoon of peanut butter when I was younger; the stuff just tasted so damn good!

It wasn’t till I was older I was more aware of how bad sitting with a jar of peanut butter in one hand and a spoon in another while watching TV was for me.

Still, to this day peanut butter is one of my favorite things on earth, and thanks to the invention of powdered peanut butter I can eat it without really holding back. The recommended serving size of Pb2 is 12g, but I say “pfft” and go for almost 2 and 1/2 times serving. If you are a real PB addict like me, then you’d totally agree with this.

As my passion for peanut butter grew, I began using it to flavor my favorite recipes such as single-serve chocolate mug cake, pb2 avocado pudding, green smoothie recipes, protein bars, bliss balls, etc.

These recipes I previously kept close to my heart because they were so freaking good…. until now.

These PB2 recipes are essentially sugar-free and as healthy as I can make them. I forgot to also mention how easy, simple, and delicious they taste IMHO.

But before I get into all the good stuff, let me first put out to you the difference between PB2 nutrition vs. Peanut Butter Nutrition and evaluate, which one is, in fact, a healthier option.

For some who are not sure, Pb2 is a powdered peanut butter made by squeezing natural oils out of the peanuts and then dehydrating what’s left, yielding a powder that is 85% fat-free.

Alternatively, natural organic peanut butter is 100% organic peanuts that have been dry roasted and then ground into a peanut paste. It’s just 100% peanuts grounded to form a creamy, satisfying and addicting peanut butter.

I need to mention organic 100% peanut butter is very different from the processed peanut butter found in supermarkets. It differs because the processed versions will include added sugars, salt, and even preservatives.

This is what really makes peanut butter so unhealthy.

My suggestion is to avoid these types of peanut butter altogether. It’s the salty, sweet, and fattiness of these processed peanut butter that make it so uncontrollably addictive, which is why we might lack a lot of self-control.

 

SO LET US DO A COMPARISON OF PB2 VS. 100% ORGANIC PEANUT BUTTER

PB2 Bell Plantation
Powdered Peanut Butter
(20g)
Natural Peanut Butter-
100% Ground Organic Peanuts
(20g)
Calories 75 119
Protein 8.3g 5.6g
Fat 2.5g 10g
Monounsaturated Fat 2.4g 9.8g
Polyunsaturated Fat 0.1g 1.3g
Carbs 8.3g 2.4g
Sugar 1.66g 1.04g
Fibre 3.33g 1.2g
Sodium 156.66 mg 1.6 mg

So what’s my verdict?

 

100% organic peanut butter contains healthier fats, which are essential for health and well-being. Vitamin E, which is fat-soluble is very healthy, and it’s found in your natural peanut butter. Therefore when you’re choosing PB2 over natural peanut butter, you are missing out on this essential vitamin.

But Wait!

If you’re already following a diet high in healthy fats such as olive oil, avocado, and nuts then you’ll get more than enough Vitamin E already. So it doesn’t matter at all if you’re “missing out” on it.

I believe what’s more important is how you feel consuming PB2 and the 1oo% organic peanut butter. If one makes you feel worse, then avoid it and stick to the other. Or if one makes you eat more than you need, then avoid that too.

 

Bottom Line: The choice of peanut butter is really in your court. For me, I have both! Why not? They both contain certain benefits over the other, so it simply depends on what I feel like at the time, and what my goals are. I hope you can also take this approach to a lot of things in life.
