I'm looking to purchase PBfit powdered peanut butter, I was wondering if you recommended the plain peanut flavour, or the chocolate peanut flavour? Thanks :)

Oh, and also how do u incorporate it into your diet? I've heard it's good in shakes.

    I eat it all the time. I've never tried the chocolate.
    The texture is weird, so I tend to use it as an ingredient or just mix some in my oatmeal. Here is what I ate today:

    Powdered peanut butter makes a great, low cal, Thai peanut sauce for Thai chicken wraps or Thai chicken pizza.

    I prefer PBfit over PB2. The chocolate in either really doesn't have much of a chocolate flavor IMO but I still like it. I add to protein shakes, oatmeal and yogurt. Sometimes I mix with a little almond milk and powdered sugar to make a syrup for pancakes. If you mix it straight into yogurt and add a half serving of mini chocolate chips it's like eating cookie dough. I don't use it as peanut butter, I'll make room for the real thing.

    They sell it right at Publix. Make a batch up and schmear it on Ezekiel toast for breakfast, use some dolloped on an Apple for a snack, mixed in to a protein skate. Or just mix and eat on a PBJ. Good stuff, avoid the flavors and stick wit the real deal.

    For powdered peanut butter, I REALLY like Naked PB. It is fantastic in steel cut oats. Here's a link to info about it, in case you're interested: https://nkdnutrition.com/products/powdered-peanut-butter

    I have mixed mine in smoothies, pancake batter (yum!!!), and my granola to make the milk pb flavored :smiley: so far I LOVE IT. I can't wait to try the stir fry ideas others have mentioned.

    I mix the plain one with my chocolate protein powder and almond milk. Also in brownies:

    The chocolate in the "chocolate" PB2 isn't even strong enough for me to taste. After first trying it, I just use the regular and add chocolate protein powder to cocoa to it.

    I like the original flavor, haven't tried chocolate though.....
    I put it on my protein pancakes mostly and sometimes I'll add it to a smoothie or dunk a banana in it :smile:

    I've tried regular PB2 and it was absolutely awful. Tried it in protein shakes, smoothies, and yogurt. All were disgusting and had to be thrown out. :(

    I love the original PB2....I bought the chocolate once and ended up having to throw it out because I didn't use it in time. I just use Hershey's coco (unsweetened) with the PB2 if I want a chocolate taste. I also like throwing chopped strawberries in my protein shakes and oatmeal with a scoop of PB2 as well.

    The original PB2 is the best. I use it everyday in my smoothie/shake. And Groupon sells it in a pack of 6 that lasts me forever and I don't have to worry about running out.

    I use PB2 Hazelnut flavour on toast, just like I would peanut butter because I have to have peanut butter to live but it has a lot of calories for a very small portion. PB2 is an acceptable substitute for me. It certainly has cut my cravings for PB.

    In addition to the above, it's good for PB flavoring in baked goods. Of course, you need to make sure you have enough fat/moisture in the batter, as you won't get it from "real" PB - but it's good as a replacement or cocoa, if you'd rather have PB-flavor, as opposed to chocolatey. Or, for that matter, only partially replace the cocoa with PB2, so you get some of both flavors.

    Both.

    the chocolate just tastes like chocolate though - it doesn't taste much like peanut butter at all to me.

    I've only been able to find PB&Me locally. I bought the "natural" kind that is only peanuts. I use real peanut butter on my toast, but I use the powder for lots of things - You can replace some of the flour in baked goods with it and it's awesome.

    My favourite afternoon snack is currently a half-cup plain greek yogurt with 1 tbsp PB&Me and 1 tsp honey, then I dip apple slices in it. So yummy!

    I also mix a tbsp of it with a little bit of peanut oil and salt and drizzle it over popcorn. I'm a bit obsessed with my Peanut Butter Popcorn.

    I like the PB Fit much better than any other brand I have gotten. OMG, that stuff is life! I put it in oatmeal all the time and use it in mug cakes a lot too. Must try the peanut butter popcorn!

    I've never tried it, I use regular PB, does it have same amount of protein as regular PB?
