I had read about Betty Lou’s powdered peanut butter in some of the blogs I follow and when I saw it as a featured item at the local grocery store I knew I had to try it. Granted my frugality nearly prevented me from adding it to my cart. Each jar was selling for about $10. However, one must live and experience new things once in a blue moon. (*note, you can buy Betty Lou’s powdered peanut butter on-line for under $9).
I originally added the powder to a banana smoothie. I couldn’t taste the peanut flavor as much as I had hoped, but I think if I added a scoop or two more next time it would increase the flavor. Last night I decided to follow the directions and add 1 tbls of water to 2 tbls of powder. The consistency was pretty thick but a few more drops of water made it perfectly creamy! The taste is a little different from freshly roasted peanut butter, but I think that is to be expected. The texture and peanut flavor are spot on. I was pleasantly surprised and definitely recommend you all try this out. It’s a healthy alternative that is tasteful and delicious. I can’t wait to make a pb&j with it next!
