Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt: The Most Satisfying Snack

Preview: Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt with chocolate is a fresh and tasty high-protein snack idea made with powdered peanut butter. Eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dessert, or just because.

Try this recipe for Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt the next chance you need a protein hit. You might recognize the flavors of the famous peanut butter cups in the orange package.

Between the yogurt and the peanut butter, you will get about 14 grams (2% yogurt) of satisfying protein in a half-cup serving. Eating this for dessert after your evening meal is one of the best ways I know of to squash the night-time hungry monster.

Yogurt makers like myself and many of my readers are continually looking for new ways to flavor yogurt. This is my latest favorite.

Thanks to one of my readers who left this idea in the comment section of one of my homemade Greek yogurt posts.

Why is there so much protein in Greek yogurt?

Greek yogurt is loaded. Filtering out the whey (the liquid that collects on top of yogurt) makes the yogurt thicker without losing any of the protein. The amount of protein in 1/2 cup of regular yogurt is less than in Greek yogurt.

What is powdered peanut butter?

#1

How is powdered peanut butter made?

Powdered peanut butter is made by pressing roasted peanuts until they give up their oil. The peanuts are then ground into a powder. A small amount of sugar and salt may be added to enhance the flavor.

#2

Is powdered peanut butter healthier than regular peanut butter?

According to Consumer Reports, “With most of the fat gone—powdered peanut butter has about 85 percent less than regular—you’re left with protein and fiber.” That means the calories will be less. However, the amount of protein and fiber is the same.

#3

Which brand should I buy?

My favorite brand of powdered peanut butter is PBFIT. The people at 99 Boulders agree with me. However, if you can’t find PBFIT, they have suggestions for other good brands.

I buy powdered peanut butter at Target or Walmart, but it is also available online. (paid link) Recently, I saw it in the bulk bins at Winco.

Can I substitute regular peanut butter for the powdered peanut butter?

Combining yogurt with regular peanut butter can be challenging, especially if you are doing it by hand. As it turns out, powdered peanut butter mixes into yogurt much more quickly and smoothly than real peanut butter.

Using regular peanut butter will increase the fat and calories considerably. I’m not saying that’s bad–just letting you know.

Variations:

  • Do you have a sweet tooth but don’t want sugar? Stir in a little sweetener of your choice.
  • Sprinkle a few slivers of semi-sweet or dark chocolate on top if you like.
  • If you are feeling decadent, squirt a little bit of whipped cream on top.
  • If you want a treat, top your yogurt with chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt: A PB2 Recipe

Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt: A PB2 Recipe

Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt with chocolate is quick to make and full of satisfying protein. (But who cares when yogurt tastes this good.)

Prep Time 3 minutes
Total Time 3 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) unflavored 2% milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons of powdered peanut butter (PB2 is good)
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (or your favorite sweetener) (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon chopped 85% chocolate (or your favorite) (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix first five ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of your favorite chopped chocolate bar. Nutritionals are figured using 85% chocolate.

Notes

If we have it, sometimes we will squirt a little whipped cream on top of the yogurt before we sprinkle it with chocolate. It's a naughty pleasure!

The recipe is written for plain powdered peanut better. If you can find powdered chocolate peanut butter, you can leave out the cocoa powder.
