Peanut Butter Shake


I finally found something the hubby likes made with the PB2 powdered peanut butter. The standard low carb protein shake is great with a couple of tablespoons of this powder added. Very rich. It tastes just like the peanut butter milkshakes we used to order at the little hamburger/malt shop near my home. I never could get through an entire malt in those days. My sweet tooth is not so strong. In fact, having just finished my shake, I need to run get something savory. I am just weird like that.

These are very filling. The PB2 adds 53 calories and about 3 net carbs to the shake. It is worth the extra carb for the flavor; as the DaVinci peanut butter flavored syrup I had tried before is just too disappointing. To me, that tastes like chemicals. This is good.

Here's my recipe:

Peanut Butter Shake

1 cup water
1/2 cup crushed ice
2 Tablespoon heavy cream
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I found a good deal on the GNC brand, and I like it)
1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 Tablespoons PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
sweetener to taste

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.


I added some of the peanut butter powder to my home made yogurt. I really liked it, but hubby said he got tired of it too quickly. I will be trying more recipes with it soon. I think it is a really cool product. My niece who counts calories and fat may really like this one.
