Can I use Peanut Butter instead of raw Peanuts?

Yes you can use peanut butter instead of the raw peanuts. It can be the creamy or crunchy peanut butter type. It is your choice.

However, for 1 cup of raw peanut substitute it with 1/2 cup of peanut butter. No need to sieve it if you are using peanut butter.

Add more peanut butter if you choose to.

To sieve or not to sieve the blended peanuts

If you are a peanut lover like my husband and have no problem tasting the grains, then you can choose to not sieve the blended raw peanuts.

However, if you have a high power blender that can puree it and leave it smooth (no small bits of peanut), then no problem go ahead.

In this recipe I sieve the blended raw peanut because I don’t like to taste bits of peanuts while enjoying this high energy drink.

Overall, it’s a personal choice to sieve or not to sieve the blended raw peanuts.
