Must-Have Ingredient!

Powdered Peanut Butter

We've been singing the praises of this nutty-good product for years — it is THE BEST WAY to get real peanut-butter flavor into your food without the calorie count climbing too high. Plus, it thickens smoothies and is awesome for creating PB spreads & sauces to make everything tastier. We order the biggest tubs we can get our hands on since we use it so often — this 2-lb. jar of PB2 fits the bill! Explore other brands & size options to fit your needs…
