Peanut Butter is something that many of us consider a staple in our homes. Our kids love it… we love it. But many peanut butters you come across these days (like everything else now!) are full of preservatives and chemicals – far from natural. Health is slowly becoming a bigger issue these days so you will now find more natural options out there, but even some of the “natural” options contain negative ingredients.
Bell Plantation has created an amazing product that tastes good and is good for you. PB2 is a peanut butter that goes through a process (which does NOT use chemicals) to extract 85% of the fat from the peanuts. By doing so, much of the oils are squeezed out leaving a POWDERED peanut butter - yes I said powdered. You can either add water to the powder to form the same peanut butter consistency OR add it to ANYTHING you want! I use the regular PB2 in my protein shakes, smoothies, as a dip, or as a spread – the possibilities are endless! You can even bake with it to make things like Peanut Butter Cookies! I definitely recommend checking out their RECIPES.
Calling all sweets lovers… I have the perfect snack for you satisfy your sugar cravings! Chocolate PB2 is a cocoa version of PB2 peanut butter. My yummy snack idea? I took some cut up strawberries and mixed the Chocolate PB2 as directed on the packaging and used it as a dip for the strawberries! I used to eat Nutella and strawberries but Nutella has SO much sugar in each serving which adds up pretty quickly. Chocolate PB2 only has 3g of sugar per 2 TBSP which is all I use per snack, anyways. The Bell Plantation site says chocolate PB2 is also “ delicious on graham crackers, fruit, salty crackers, or as cupcake icing, ice cream topping and in smoothies.”
So, for those of you skipping to the bottom, here are some pro’s
- All natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives
- 85% less fat calories
- No use of chemicals during the extraction process
- Non GMO
- All natural
