Hey everyone!

I’m Ashley from over at After Nine To Five and today I wanted to share one of my favorite you’d-never-know-it-was-really-healthy foods: PB2.

PB2 is something I stumbled upon by accident earlier this year and I really wish I had sooner. It’s an all natural powdered peanut butter with no preservatives, sweeteners, or artificial flavoring. It has 85% less calories than normal peanut butter and it’s incredibly versatile. All you have to do is add water to it to form a peanut butter like consistency and you’re done. The chocolate PB2 is even better!

One of my favorite recipes to make with it is a peanut butter banana smoothie. It’s good for breakfast (tons of protein), works as a healthy and filling snack, and is even a delicious dessert. It’s also ridiculously easy so it’s pretty much a win-win situation all around.


  • 1 cup milk (we used vanilla flavored soy milk)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp


Freeze the banana until it’s solid. This helps replace the texture that ice cubes would add.

Chop the peeled banana up into quarters and throw in a blender.

Add milk and PB2.

Blend until desired consistency and enjoy!


Thanks to Ashley for sharing this healthy treat!!!
