PB2 peanut powder mixed with water creates a type of reduced-fat peanut butter. We put ours on a bagel with apple slices.
|People who love peanut butter but can’t have the fat have a new friend in PB2. It’s peanut powder made from roasted peanuts that have been 75% defatted and ground into an aromatic and tasty powder. The powder reconstitutes with water to a homemade PB-like consistency; but has equal uses as powdered garnish/flavoring and a cooking/baking ingredient. Thus, it belongs in every kitchen. As a PB substitute, without all of peanut butter’s natural oil and creamy mouthfeel, you won’t mistake PB2 for the real thing, any more than fat-free milk can be mistaken for whole milk. But it’s far superior in taste than other PB substitutes, and at 54 calories per 2 tablespoons and just 2.8g total fat, it saves calories and fat for those who can’t have one or both and want their peanut butter. By analogy, fat-free milk is better than no milk at all, and can be quite enjoyable once you get used to it. Read the full review in THE NIBBLE online magazine.
