KREMA PEANUT BUTTER REVIEW

KREMA– AHHH SO DIVINE. It is delicious and nutritious. I can’t tell you how much I love peanut butter. When I find new peanut butter brands to try  I jump with joy because this is my favorite food!!! 

It will always be a staple in my household and a part of my diet. 🙂

It is one of the oldest peanut butter companies in the country!! It was established in 1898 -whoa long time ago! What I love about it is it only contains peanuts. It still comes out extremely smooth and creamy. It comes out very oily because it’s all natural; which  I like when I dab and  smear on my oats or homemade treats.  It does not contain any salt, added sugar, or hydrogenated oils like all the other big brand names out there. If you have a sweet tooth or salty tooth all you can do is add a dab of salt or sugar to your needs. My personal preference is it all by itself. It also contains no trans fat and is a good source of unsaturaed fat and folic acid. I recently came upon this in the store and I knew I had to write into the company to blog and give my reviews.

The first one  I tried was Natural Creamy peanut Butter

This one is my favorite! So smooth and has a natural peanut butter taste. I used it in a banana bread recipe I recently made and posted. It gave such a perfect soft texture and matched well with the banana taste. Man did my sister and I devour that bread fast! Check the recipe and try this creamy peanut butter to mix in. Of course I added a smear on top of the bread after warm out of the oven. MmMmMm

Second was the Krema Crunchy Peanut Butter

It is a creamy base, with chunks of peanuts in it. I love this as well. 

So far with this one I have been smearing on whole wheat cinnamon swirl toast with sliced banana! I also mix it in to my morning oats, which contain 1/3 cup oat bran, 1T chia seed, 1T flax meal, and sometimes HERBALIFE CHOCOLATE PROTEIN POWDER (makes it taste like chocolate cake- and adds extra protein and vitamin/mineral boost!!). This concotion keeps me full and fueled for hours! Especially before a hard work out or busy day! I recommend both of these and to purchase you can find more at their website www.kremaproducts.com

I will continue making and expierencing new recipes! I want to try making unusual recipes as well. Next up I want to try their hot and spicy Krema Peanut butter and make a chicken veggie noodle dish with a peanut sauce mixed in!!!Yuuum!

Have a good day everyone and ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SMILE! 

My <3 day consists of choc0 and Peanut Buttaaa!

yeSSSSSSSSSSS! It is Valentine’s day. What do you all think of this holiday. Well I know- it inspires me to make my 2 favorite things in the world. CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER. I def can’t go a day without eating the other. But remember- everything is in moderation and I make sure to fit it in daily calorie allotment. I mean if I had to go a day without the 2-I would not be a HAPPY person. I make a point to always have a nutritious breakfas lunch, and dinner, so I can indulge  little and make my healthy desserts. Well today for VALENTINES DAY

I made my favorite cake- but healthy!!! Try it and let me know what you think 😉

This healthy cake recipe is as rich as any other chocolate peanut butter cake recipe, but it has yogurt and ground flaxseed meal in place of some of the butter and less sugar than most chocolate peanut butter cake recipes. To make this low fat cake recipe even more healthy, use an omega-3 enriched peanut butter, such as Smart Balance. But my all fav is Trader Joe’s
