Actually, I think everyday should be a tribute to peanut butter (or any nut butter for that matter), but in honor of the special Labor Day sale on PB2 (that’s still going on) I thought I’d share a recipe I’ve been making almost daily over here.
If you don’t know about PB2, it’s a powdered peanut butter that you mix with water ( or milk, soymilk, almond milk, etc.) to make a paste similar to peanut butter. You can also mix it with cottage cheese, yogurt, cream cheese, etc.) I eat this stuff almost daily. Right now Bell Plantation is running a special deal.
I’m about to order some myself and even though you have to order two 12-packs to get the free shipping, if you go through this stuff as fast as I do it’s worth it.
So….. here’s the recipe that was inspired by Chocolate Fudge Pie.
Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge Pie
1/2 very ripe banana
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons PB2
That Artisana Coconut Butter is a new staple around the STUFT house (thanks to Chocolate Covered Katie and all her fabulous recipes). I omitted the peanut butter in the picture because you can use any brand or type that you want. You can even substitute in a different nut butter. For this particular recipe I used Naturally More.
Combine all ingredients and blend together until smooth. I used the Magic Bullet, but I’ve also mixed by hand a few times.
Pour into small dish.
Cover and freeze for a couple hours.
you will have this.
Eat it plain. or top it with some STUFT Dark Chocolate Sauce.
Or even top it with a little Fat Free Reddiwhip or soy whip.
Don’t mind the smudges on the plate. Obviously photography and editing is not my expertise. I don’t have time to edit my photos (or get my house organized).
This can even be used as a pudding or frosting if you chill it in the refrigerator instead of freezing it.
Or even as a thick mouse pie.
He he! Do you like that plate?
I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I’m off to get ready to teach my classes tonight and get ready for my new job tomorrow morning. I’m hoping to get up at 5:15 am to get on the treadmill before work.
Flat Kitty better get busy too because he has had a pretty boring week so far.
