Summer of Cooking With PB2
Schools out for summer! Well, in a typical year, it would be. Because most kids primarily did online school, this year has been long and challenging for moms everywhere. And now, summer is here, and for some of us, staying outside all day is unsafe due to extreme weather, which means occupying kids for a few more months. Here’s a suggestion: take them into the kitchen!
Cooking is a great way to keep your kids engaged while sneakily getting them to practice basic math concepts and build language skills. While it may take a bit of adaptability and a little bit of prep work, you can make the most out of the time in the kitchen with your kids.
Here are a few hand-selected recipes we know kids from all ages will not only love to eat but also make. All of these recipes can be made with our PB2 Original Powdered Peanut Butter. Peanut butter re-imagined, our PB2 is made with a bit of sugar and a dash of salt for peanut butter that only has 1.5 grams of fat per serving, which happens to be 70% fewer calories than traditional peanut butter.
So, let’s get to cooking, shall we?
