Last week I got the chance to head out to Beachbody Headquarters in L.A., and while I was there, I FINALLY got a jar of PB2! I’ve heard nothing but great things about PB2 for quite a while now, but just haven’t gotten around to purchasing it online, because apparently, that’s the only place you can get it. As I was touring Beachbody, Bryan (BC2) made me some chocolate Shakeology blended with almond milk and it literally was the best Shakeology I’ve ever had! Because he’s just awesome, he gave me a jar of PB2 to take home.
What is PB2? It’s a powder form of peanut butter that is MUCH healthier for you than regular peanut butter! The jar actually states that it has “85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter.” The serving size is two tablespoons, and what you do is mix it with one tablespoon of water until it’s smooth. Here are the nutrition facts: calories- 45, total fat- 1.5g (0g saturated fat), sodium- 94mg, total carb.- 5g (1g sugar, 2g fiber), and protein- 5g. When you think about the amount of calories in regular peanut butter compared to Pb2, there is no comparison! I just checked and in my Natural JIF there are 190 calories in 2 tablespoons! WOW!
How it’s made. The peanuts are slow roasted and then pressed to remove the fat and oil. It even states on the jar that there are no additives and it’s all natural, which is important to me since I’m so health conscious about what I eat!
There are two flavors, regular and chocolate, and even though I haven’t had the chance to try the chocolate yet, I’m pretty excited to do so. Now that I know that I can get the peanut butter taste without the guilt of having regular peanut butter, I’m going to start incorporating it into my daily diet, into things like Shakeology, and may even create some sort of healthy dessert. Well, maybe I won’t create a healthy dessert, but Melinda seems to be the expert in that area, so she’ll probably create one and post it on her site for you all!
So my PB2 review is that it’s one heck of an amazing product that tastes great and is very healthy for you! It’s about time that someone comes out with a healthy peanut butter!
