I need ideas on what to use this with and how to prepare it? I can't eat dairy and I don't eat/drink coconut or milk.

    Both my uses of it are with dairy products.

    Cookies? Brownies?

    I use PB2 with my chocolate protein shake. Sometimes i'll put it in the freezer to have a custard like treat.

    I used to eat PB2 frequently until I got bored with it. I'd often just mix it with water and eat it straight. Alternately, I'd put it on toast, sometimes along with jam or jelly. I also mixed it with oatmeal.
  • I use it on rice cakes or eat it with a banana, I've also mixed it in a smoothie.

    I like to add a little bit of water to make it a similar consistency to peanut butter and dip apple slices or baby carrots in it.

    Add it to my smoothies with my alt milk. Also use as a sub for peanut butter by mixing with water and using pretzels for dipping.

    I used to mix in a little water and spread it on toast.

    I don't like it as an actual peanut butter substitute (like on sandwiches) but I mix it into cottage cheese and greek yogurt.

    Mix it into greek yogurt. Freeze until it just starts to harden, stir, add ice cream toppings if desired.

    It's a great substitute for peanut butter in the peanut sauce that I serve over chicken and pasta/zoodles.

    I hadn't thought of that! I love a spicy peanut sauce! One of my favorite summer dishes (if anyone cares lol) is:

    Thin strips of:
    Sweet red & yellow peppers
    Cucumber
    Onion
    Shredded carrots
    Shredded Purple cabbage
    Cooked Chicken breast
    Cilantro
    Mint
    Spicy peanut sauce

    Best after it sits for a few minutes, but it gets watery if mixed too early.

    Absolutely delicious...crunchy, cool, beautiful and refreshing! Now I want some.

    I make an almond milk smoothie with mine... PB2, cocoa powder, stevia, splash of vanilla extract, 8-12 oz almond milk.

    I make peanut sauce/dressing out of it. I also make protein peanut butter cups: https://theproteinchef.co/the-best-bodybuilding-protein-peanut-butter-cups-recipe/

    I use it to flavor plain non fat yogurt and give it a little more protein.

    I mix it with water to spread on toast or roll up in XTreme Wellness High Fiber wraps; those are 50 cals each and then with 2 tablespoons of chocolate PB2, it still comes in under 100.

    Like others - oatmeal. It's good in some cold cereals that are mostly grain like Chex. I mix it in almond milk and then pour it over the cereal to do that; it's hard to mix in to cold cereal without powder lumps.

    Peanut sauce, as others have said. I mix the powder with a little soy sauce, maybe some chili sauce, and brown rice vinegar. Then I add whatever seasonings I feel like (choosing some rational subset of minced fresh garlic, chopped green onion, pulverized Szechuan peppercorns, grated fresh ginger, etc.) If I have a few extra calories, a bit of toasted sesame oil is a good addition. I like it on veggies, and/or edamame pasta.

    I like the chocolate PB2 mixed with Greek yogurt and frozen berries, as a cold dessert.

    PB2 Choc is the best for me - doesn’t rly taste chocolate-y but it somehow tastes better anyway. Regular pb2 can be used in savoury cooking like for a satay flavoured stir fry etc. Also if ur making hot choc, if u stick a sneaky tsp of pb2 in there it tastes wonderful.
    Otherwise I just mix a few tbsp of PB2 choc with a bit of water and eat it with a teaspoon, or maybe use it as a dip for toast etc as an alternative to spreading. Spice things up

    If whey bothers you in addition to regular dairy you can use vegan protein powder.
