Your dietitian’s pick of the month is powdered peanut butter. Hy-Vee HealthMarket powdered peanut butter has most of the fat and oil removed, leaving a slow roasted peanut taste. It comes in three delicious flavors including original, chocolate and hazelnut. This product is a convenient way to boost protein by simply adding it to smoothies, dips, yogurt, pudding or oatmeal. See the recipes below for a great peanut butter dip to go with Honey crisp apples or make a chocolate peanut butter pie. Oh, by the way, the original product is called PB 2.
It was so popular that Hy-Vee came out with their own version.
