Beth Bakes: PB2 Chocolate Whipped Dip

Sunday, December 22, 2013

I haven't done a Beth Bakes blog entry in a long time! I've been so busy at work trying to meet goals that I haven't really had the time to think of fun and simple recipes. Oh well, I've got a recipe for you today!

This recipe is super simple and another one of my Cool Whip based dips. You know, funny thing, I'm not a fan of Cool Whip on it's own but dump things in it and I will eat the whole container! I used this dip as a dessert snack to calm my cravings for something sweet and chocolate.

 Here's what you'll need:

1 container Cool Whip (I used the "Free" version to keep things low calorie)
1/4 cup of PB2 with premium chocolate

1. Take thawed container of Cool Whip, stir and make a hole in the center of the container.

2. Take 1/4 cup PB2 and dump into the hole you created.

3. Carefully, incorporate the two ingredients together until smooth and PB2 has dissolved.

4. Enjoy!

I used this dip exclusively with cut up Honeycrisp apples but you can feel free to use it on wafers, cookies and other fruits.

I must admit this dip is the first way I had tried PB2 and I love it. But I have some negative experiences to share too.

For those of you unfamiliar with PB2 it's made from pressed peanuts to cut out fat and oils. PB2 boasts 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter. Since it's in powder form, you need to prepare it as needed. One serving is 2tbsp of PB2 mixed with 1tbsp of water. One serving is 45 calories (10 fat calories).  

I tried PB2 with premium chocolate alone on a Coco Lite cake and it was bad. It made the cake mushy, which was weird and made for an awful texture.

I recently gave PB2 and second chance and tried it alone with apple slices. Again, I did not enjoy the flavor and it had a foul smell. If I get through the jar I will not be repurchasing more PB2 even though it is less calories than regular PB. It's pretty pricey and the only way I eat it is by making this dip.

I think we all learned a little lesson today. When you put two bad tasting products together it makes a delicious dip! Go figure. This dip is low calorie (if you choose), tastes great and even smells like real peanut butter. I hope you enjoyed this little recipe and review of PB2 with premium chocolate.
