We like them for us (grown-ups, especially if you’re doing 1k30) and for the kids as an after school snack.
Can’t say enough about this recipe.

Useful tips for Peanut Butter and Jelly (PB&J) Shake
Use single-ingredient peanut butter or homemade. A handful of peanuts works well, too.
You can use any type of berries. Remember, though, less is more. (One type of berries is okay. Two types of berries is okay. Three types and you’ve gone overboard.)
Any plant-based protein powder works. You can skip the protein powder, too!

This was a definite winner for me! Love PB&J and this shake was very filling. I was able to have it very early in the morning before work and was full right up until lunch.
I swapped out the PB for PB2 to save myself some calories!
What kind of protein powder do you use? Any recommendation? I have never bought any and would love some guidance as I’m sure some are better than others.
Is your almond milk sweetened?
If you use peanuts do you also use 1 tbsp? Are they unsalted?
I’m going to try this recipe once I get my Vitamix.
Can you add egg whites as an addition to your protein shake, if you are also using protein powder? Or will you explode from protein overdrive?

Go for it. Just listen to your body afterwards.
Have you ever tried changing the peanut butter for pb2?
Lenny Gale -
Never tried pb2 — usually prefer whole food versions if I can get it.
