If you like peanut butter on celery sticks, you are going to LOVE this soup!

My mom invented this soup for me when I broke my jaw in a horseback riding accident in college… having it  wired together for 8 weeks, meant everything was through a straw…

Since I couldn’t eat a peanut butter sandwich, she made me peanut butter soup!

It is still one of my very favorites~ you’d think I’d have bad memories, but happily, I met a dental student soon after this and fell in love…and he has been taking very good care of me ever since!!

I lightened up her original recipe by replacing peanut butter with PB2, powdered peanut butter

Stir the powder into the soup as it is simmering, and use a whisk if it gets clumpy, to smooth everything out

All the peanut butter flavor, with a significant reduction of fat and calories!

I used regular Cream of Celery soup and 2% milk, with 3 Tablespoons of PB2

234 calories per serving,  verses 350 calories, and a lot less fat-

In this recipe, the peanut butter alone adds 12 grams of fat, but if you replace it with PB2, you reduce the fat grams from 12 grams to 2 grams,  see note below*

You can lighten this up even further by using Healthy Request Cream of Celery soup, skim milk, chicken broth, or water, but I prefer milk~

    Jenna, I would have never thought of making a soup with peanut butter but I do love dunking my celery sticks in the jar! I cringed when I read you broke your jar horseback riding…ouch! Glad you met your dental student and had a happy ending 🙂

    Wasn’t that sweet of your mom to invent a soup for you as you were healing your poor jaw? Your lightened up version sounds perfect! I’m thinking that meeting that dental student turned out to be fate!
