PB2 Review

I first tried PB2 at the Beachbody Headquarters during the P90X2 rehearsals.  The Shakeology master (Brian) was there mixing up some cholate Shakeology for us and he told me to check out this “PB2 stuff”.  I was pretty amazed by the fact that it was claiming to be Peanut Butter but was only 45 calories.  The most amazing part though is that after he blended it into the Chocolate Shakeology with some almond milk, it had an amazing Peanut Butter flavor.   I was pretty blown away.  So I went home and bought some online.

What is PB2?

PB2 is a Powerded Peanut Butter by a company called Bell Plantation.  Basically what they do is remove 85% of the fat calories without using chemicals, which is typical for reduced fat foods.  There are no preservatives at all.  They remove the fat by squeezing out the oil, so all that is left is the roasted peanut butter flavor.  There are no artificial sweeteners either.  This allows you to mix PB2 into water or into Shakeology and get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter.  I know you have heard me say “not to fear fat”.  That is still true.  Fat from nuts is good for you, but there are some people who take Shakeology that love Peanut Butter but don’t want the extra calories…my fiance falls into this category for example.  This gives you the best of both worlds.

What are the Nutrition Facts for PB2?

The serving size is two tablespoons of the PB2 powder.  You get 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 5 grams carbs, 5 grams protein, and 2 grams of fiber.  Honestly it is pretty sweet.

What Do You Mix with PB2?

The only thing I have tried so far is that I have it with my Chocolate Shakeology.  I have mixed it with some almond mild and regular milk and both taste awesome.  It goes great with anything you like to pair regular peanut butter with.  One of my favorite recipes is 1 Scoop of Chocolate Shakeology, 1 cup almond milk, 2 scoops PB2, and 1/2 banana, Blend with Ice and enjoy!  It makes the whole thing taste like a scoop of Chunky Monkey for all you Ben & Jerry’s Fans out there.

Where Do I Get it?

You can find PB2 only online I believe.  The main site for PB2 is http://www.bellplantation.com/ .  They have 2 flavors…regular and Chocolate.  I haven’t tried the chocolate yet but I am sure it’s pretty good. The main difference is that it has 3 grams of sugar instead of 1 gram.

If your looking to try it with Shakeology, I recommend trying Chocolate first, you can find Shakeology on my site by CLICKING HERE, or going to the “supplements” tab and finding Shakeology.  If you can any questions about Shakeology feel free to contact me by leaving a comment or through the “contact me” tab.

Have you tried PB2?  What did you Think?  Are you going to try it?

Is PB2 good to spread on a piece of whole grain toast or with an apple? Or is it just supposed to be used as a mixer?

Coach I’m not sure if you have heard this or not but I just found out Pepsi has bought out Cyto Sports. This is the company that produces muscle milk protein. Which me being a hard gainer was great because it had 200 calories a serving. The problem is that Pepsi supposedly changed the type of protein that goes in the recipe. I have heard from multiple people that the new type of protein is JUNK and to stay away from it. I just wanted to send out a warning just in case people out there are using it. I would hate to think of all the hard work people put in to be derailed by putting junk into their bodies.

PB2 and Chocolate Shakeology marry perfectly together. Ive been using it for over 3 months now and have been convinced that this product is trully a stroke of genious. I intend on trying the Chocolate PB2 flavor next time i put in my order. Great Post!

@Allegra: It's a powder form of peanut butter, you can add water and turn it into a spreadable butter but it's best used in mixing.

@Patrick: That is the first time I heard that but I am not surprised. Muscle Milk used to be very good quality but recently they have been getting terrible ratings on quality of their proteins. I always recommend that everyone stay away from Muscle Milk now. You get what you pay for.
