I have found that 99% of low calorie peanut butter recipes are just another rant about PB2. Yes, I am a huge advocate for using PB2, but as I have stated in the past, sometimes you just need to have the real thing.
So what if you could have the real thing yet still take in about half the calories?
What if you could do this while still using all natural, healthy ingredients?
Well, you can 🙂
All you are going to need is
1. 4 tbsp peanut butter
2. 1 banana
I actually ended up using 1 1/2 bananas, and 5 tbsp of peanut butter. That’s just because I wanted to make a little bit more though. The good thing about this is you can use half the banana for this recipe, and then freeze the rest for ice cream 🙂
Start by chopping up your banana into little banana coins
Microwave your peanut butter for about 30 seconds to a minute. I wanted to make a maple peanut butter, so I used 2 tbsp of mighty maple peanut butter by peanut butter and co, and 3 tbsp of regular all natural peanut butter.
Combine all of the ingredients in a vitamix or blender, and blend until smooth.
Place in a jar, and set in the fridge for an hour or so to let it thicken and set.
You don’t HAVE to do this, but trust me it makes it that much more like peanut butter.
Enjoy! And trust me… you will enjoy 🙂
Question: What is your dream flavor of peanut butter?
I’m actually in the process of creating this, so watch out for that recipe!
