Prepared and photographed by NutraMilk nutritionist, Florencia Tagliavini.
We love getting creative and trying new things. This is a fusion between your traditional peanut butter & Jelly sandwich and a cheese quesadilla. This can provide a quick and easy meal for anytime of the day (breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner). One serving provides 430 calories and can be included as a main meal in a low-calorie plan. Enjoy!
