This combo always hits the spot. It can almost be enjoyed as a treat or a dessert since it tastes so yummy…but my version is low calorie and will leave you feeling satisfied.
I have been using powdered peanut butter for a while and I really enjoy it for mainly making smoothies.
I love it because it acts as a protein powder but it does not get clumpy in the blender, which is awesome!
It is so easy to use and only has 45 calories, 1.2 grams of fat, and 1 gram of sugar. It is noticeably a lot lower in calories and fat from regular peanut butter, and this is because the manufactures press the peanuts to remove the fat and oil content – but still keep the same great taste.
Granted powdered peanut butter is not as rich and creamy as creamy peanut butter, but it you are a calorie counting type of person this can be a great alternative. There is always 2 sides to the story though, right? I am not saying creamy peanut butter is “bad” for you – no way!
Creamy peanut butter is great for you because it is a nutrient dense food with healthy fats that will give you a feeling of satiety.
It can prevent you from overindulging later on in the day. All I am trying to convey is…powdered peanut butter is out there, and can be used as an alternative once in a while…and I just so happened to use it in this smoothie. 🙂 Enjoy this lightened up rendition of a peanut butter smoothie!
