Sunland Peanut Butter Review

We have peanut butter often at breakfast time. I have tried a few products made by Sunland before.

I've purchased Sunland Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter from Tropical Traditions previously. We love it. Mica said, "This is the bomb!"

I was given two peanut butters of my choice. I chose: Raspberry Peanut Butter Spread - Natural and Natural Valencia Crunchy Peanut Butter. Both of these "Are the bomb!" As Mica would say!


Both products are gluten free. I love that they are no stir.

The fruit infused varieties of peanut butter, allow us to skip the jelly on PBJ's. The kids don't even ask for it.

According to their website, "A peanut butter sandwich made with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, an 8-ounce glass of milk and an orange provides a growing child with 63% of his or her daily protein requirements."

I decided to try a new recipe I got from the open gym session at the YMCA. It is a healthier Banana Split. I modified the recipe to add more protein than what it called for. The directions are listed below the recipe card.


Directions:

  • Pick out your favorite boxed pudding mix. Mica chose Banana this time. I think chocolate would be oh so good as well!
  • Blend 1/2 a carton of soft tofu. Add in enough Almond milk to make 2 cups {including the already blended tofu}. I suppose you can use cows milk instead. We happen to love Almond!
  • Blend the boxed pudding mix with the tofu/milk mix. 
  • Blend in two heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter. We used Raspberry Peanut Butter Spread - Natural.
  • Split a banana in a bowl. We used 1/2 a banana for each kid.
  • Add in the pudding mixture.
  • Squirt Whipped Cream on top.
  • Sprinkle Chocolate Chips.
  • Add a cherry on top. We only had frozen ones, so that is what we used.

Mica and Isaak were in major heaven. They loved their Banana Split and asked for another one the next day. Mica's not even crazy about banana's or tofu alone. I could taste the peanut butter in it and it was GOOD. I have to say that the boys have never had a loaded ice cream Banana Split, so they don't know what that tastes like.


Every Sunland Peanut Butter we've ever tried has been tasty!

Oh Yum... that banana split sounds really good. I would have to use almond butter or cashew butter, and leave out the chocolate.

You have my mouth watering.

Yum. I didn't even know there were fruit flavored p.b. I only buy natural so will have to check this out. Your banana split sounds delish minus the tofu:)

Adding pb to a banana split sounds yummy! I ♥ bananas and peanut butter together, so this should be a real winner!

I love peanut butter and my family does too. I would want to try Sunland Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter from Tropical Traditions. I have never tried peanut butter with dark chocolate, but that has to be a wonderful combo! Sounds delicious.
