Why are you taking a blend in the morning? The idea of a morning shake as soon as your feet hit the floor is to break the fast you just put your body through by sleeping. With that in mind, you want the fastest absorbing protein you can get. Give that a half our to digest while your showering and dressing, then hit something that'll take a little longer to digest like whole foods.

1) The Whey factor...want to get in my body asap...but also want the Egg & Casein to be there for a couple hours until my 10 AM 7 Eggs & Oats meal.
2) The blended Protein Shakes are a lot more $ than just Whey...Instead of 2 scoops of the Syntha-6, I just use one here.6'1'' 195 lbs

Keep in mind, while I dont know what the current beleif on it is, it was popular thought that casein protein will somewhat 'bind' to the whey molecules and slow down it's absorption. That's why people never took whey with milk PWO. While that may be good to keep things going till 10:00, it may not be breaking the fast with the speed that plain whey would.
Just something to think about.

but to stay on topic. My morning(7:45) shake when I wake up is:
1 scoop BSN Syntha-6: 26 g protein(Whey, Egg, Casein)
1/2 scoop ON Whey: 12 g protein
2 strawberries, handfull of blueberries
1/2 cup of Malto
flax seed oil pill
And yes, after that I eat at 10 am: 7 Eggs & Oats6'1'' 195 lbs

Anyways, here is a little exert from the Pre/Post workout article pinned to the top of the nutrition board:
-milk considerations: whether or not you add milk to your postworkout shake depends upon personal preference and tolerance. the cons of milk are that many folks have some degree of lactose intolerance or milk allergy, and therefore are excluded from the possibility. the pros of milk postworkout are that it's highly insulinogenic, contains 6g dex per cup, and is a potent anabolic/anticatabolic substance that has outperformed whey in human research thus far.
