I’m a big fan of peanut butter and have been since I was a kid. It’s just one of those classic foods that people of all ages love. If you’re a peanut butter lover too, you’ve probably seen PBfit® Peanut Butter Powder on the shelves at your grocery store. I received some complimentary samples of both the Chocolate and Original PBfit products, and learned a little more about them. They have 87% (yes 87%) less fat than traditional peanut butter and 1/3 of the calories. So that’s great news for peanut butter fans who are trying to cut calories!
When I visited the PBfit.com website, I found some different ways you could use PBfit® Peanut Butter Powder:
- Make a low-fat peanut butter dip by combining 2 Tablespoons PBfit® with 1 ½ Tablespoons water. Stir until smooth. Use as a dip for apples, celery or pretzels.
- Mix into breads, pancakes or waffles to give them a great peanut butter flavor.
- Add a few spoonfuls into smoothies or shakes for a tasty, low-fat, protein boost.
I mixed some of the PBfit® Peanut Butter Powder with water and it really does have a good peanut butter taste. I also created a Chocolate PB Oat Smoothie recipe that you can use the Original or Chocolate PBfit® in. This smoothie has a great chocolatey flavor with a subtle peanut butter taste. It’s almost like a dessert, but all the ingredients are healthy! You can’t even taste the rolled oats in this, but they’re there—they help thicken the smoothie and make it good and filling! You can use a little less cocoa powder if you want it less chocolatey, and you can also use a little less honey if you want your smoothie less sweet. And if you don’t happen to have any PBfit® on hand, you can substitute your favorite peanut butter.

I was surprised at how filling this smoothie is! For myself, I’d probably make it a little less sweet if I were having it for breakfast. But I’d definitely use the higher amount of honey if I were having it for an afternoon snack!
