Whipped peanut butter

A couple of months ago I received a jar of the newest peanut butter from Kraft, Whipped Peanut Butter. This stuff is pretty awesome, I have to tell you. It has a lighter and fluffier consistency than regular peanut butter. It's easier to spread, feels lighter in the mouth and mixes into other ingredients super well.

I abstained from peanut butter while I was pregnant and then nursing, so my favorite way to eat this is pretty much straight out of the jar! I really do like how easily scoopable and spreadable this is.

In addition to giant mouthfuls, we also made sandwiches and smoothies and pizzas with the new peanut butter.

Thai Chicken Pizza

I mixed the whipped peanut butter with hoisin sauce and spread it on a pre-baked pizza crust.  Then I topped it with sliced red bell pepper, slices of cooked chicken and shredded mozzarella cheese.  Bake until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Kraft Whipped Peanut Butter would also be good in these other recipes of mine:
