Product Review/Giveaway: Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter

 
This month, as a Sweat Pink Ambassador with Fit Approach, I was awarded the opportunity to test out Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter.  These products were provided to me for free and though I will be compensated for my review the opinions and experiences expressed are my own.

If you know me then you know I am a huge peanut butter fan!   

Add peanut butter to nearly anything and it makes it exponentialy better!  My personal favorite ways to use peanut butter are in my morning oats, as a flavor boost in smoothies/shakes, or with apples or carrots as a quick snack.

The only downside to PB??  It’s a calorie and fat dense food and I can only enjoy it in limited quantities.  That’s where the powdered stuff comes in!

Packing 85% less calories from fat, powdered PB can be enjoyed without the guilt.

Here are two quick and easy ways to use Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter!

  1. Add it to your favorite smoothie or shake recipe.
  2. Make a quick and healthy snack like apple ‘nachos’.

Simple Chocolate PB Shake

1 cup coconut or almond milk

1/2-1cup water (to thin)

1 scoop of your fave chocolate protein powder (I used Shakeology)

1 handful of ice

2tbs Mighty Nut Powdered PB (I used chocolate)

1 handful of frozen spinach

Mix ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Thickness will vary depending on protein powder type and which liquid you use (I find my shakes with coconut milk are always thicker).  Enjoy!

 


Apple “Nachos”


This next recipe is another quickie!  You can use a mandolin to slice your apple or do it the old fashioned way with a knife.
Recipe:

1-2 small apples or one large

2tbs Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter (original) mixed with 1-2 tbs water to get to a runny consistency that canbe drizzled over the apples.

Sprinkling of dried cranberries.

Simple.  Three steps and you’re ready to head to scarf town!


I’m still working on getting a bit more creative with my uses and plan to use the original in a savory dish.  Perhaps something a little Thai inspired?  Mmmmmm spicy peanut sauce and chicken!  I think I need to get back in that kitchen!

Are you a peanut butter fan?  Do you like to use powdered peanut butter?  Well here’s your chance to get your hands on your very own stash of Mighty Nut!  I’ll be giving away one container to a lucky winner!

Recipes: Turkey & Black Bean Stuffed Dino Kale

The creation of this tasty recipe came about due to an over abundance of kale from our CSA share.  Staring down 3 varieties of kale at once was a bit overwhelming and my standard method of preparation began to lose its excitement.  So I went the route of trying something new!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Lean Ground Turkey (can use any ground meat variety here)
  • 10 Large Dino Kale Leaves 
  • 1 can sodium free black beans

**Add green onions, fresh garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper to taste

1. Prepare your leaves for stuffing:

Blanch the leaves in boiling water until pliable (soft enough to chew, but firm enough so they don’t break).  De-vein the leaves (I cut mine in half since they were so large).

2. Prepare filling:

Sauté the green onions and garlic in a pan with a small amount of olive oil.  Brown the turkey in the same pan and season with salt, pepper, and cumin to preferred taste.  I also added some fresh basil to mine!  While the turkey cooks add the can of black beans so that they can absorb the flavors.  Allow to cool so that you can handle the mixture with your bare hands.

3.  Fill the leaves:

The black beans act as the perfect binder for your turkey filling!  Use your palm to make a small cylindrical formed ball and wrap with the prepared kale leaf.  The amount of filling you will want to use will depend on the size of your kale leaves.  I used a similar amount in volume as you would use for drop cookies, but you can fill them accordingly.  If you find the kale to be a little bit too chewy, line them up in a steamer to cook the leaves more.
