If you’re a big fan of the classic childhood sandwich, you’ve got to give this recipe a try—it’s like sipping a little bit of salty-sweet heaven through a straw. Blending frozen berries with all-natural peanut butter, vanilla protein, rolled oats and soy milk helps create the protein-packed delicious taste—without tons of excess calories. If you’re not a fan of soy milk, feel free to sub in any type of unsweetened milk you prefer. It won’t alter the taste or nutrition profile much.
