One of my frustrations since I started Weight Watchers, is that there aren't as many entries ethnic foods (hint hint WW powers that be). For example, I couldn't find a point count for my beloved Thai iced tea.
If you've read any of my recent posts, you also know that I am obsessed with low calorie powdered peanut butter. I might have to start ordering PB Fit by the case, unfortunately Amazon only sells the chocolate variety by the case.
I decided to try making a peanut sauce out of PB Fit so I could have it for Asian dishes, store bought peanut sauces can have a lot of sugar. You could easily use 1-2 points worth for an Asian dipping sauce. 1/4 of this recipe is 2 points, compared to 2 points for a Tb of most pre-made peanut sauces, that's barely a dollop. This whole recipe is 8 points.
I initially used this sauce on a rice noodle stir-fry but it would also make a great dipping sauce for grilled chicken. I'm planning to try it shortly in my Instant Pot recipe for Asian style peanut chicken.
1/2 cup of PB Fit (or similar powdered peanut butter such as PB2)
1 Tb dark soy sauce (or you preferred soy sauce)
1/2-3/4 cup of water
Place PB Fit in a small bowl and add soy sauce. Whisk in 1/2 a cup of water. Gradually add small amounts of additional water until sauce reaches desired thickness.
If you are using it as a sauce on noodles like I did below, you might want a thinner sauce. If you are using it as a dip for chicken, you might want it a little bit thicker.
Each serving is 2 points on Weight Watchers Freestyle, the recipe makes 4 servings. The size of each serving will vary based on how much water you add. If you add more water, the serving will have a large volume but still be 2 points. With the full amount of water it's maybe 1/4 cup for a serving but to be honest I didn't measure because I poured it all on some noodles and just included the full count for the sauce in my recipe. I put one batch of this sauce on a whole box of rice noodles, made with the full amount of water.
