In my morning shake I normally have

1 1/2 Cups of Milk
1 Banana
1 Cup of Quaker Oats
2 Tablespoons of Skippy Natural Peanut Butter
1 or 2 Scoops of ON whey (24 Grams of protein per scoop)

It fits good into my macros having 2 scoops in the morning...but I'm wondering if it's a waste? Should I just go with 1 scoop?

reduce the peanut butter imo to say 1 tbsp, and use 2 scoops of whey

My personal opinion is when in doubt go with more, but I'm sure someone will mention some study somewhere about only being able to metabolize XX amount of protein at a time. Personal philosophy is I'd rather take in more and waste it than not get enough.

Too much fat or what?

nope personally i feel with two scoops my mixture gets too much like goop. and its too peanut buttery. you want it to be more chocolatey than peanut buttery?

you say it fits into you macros then stick with 2. Though I'm curious about the macros; if they are a bit heavy on the protein side, consider taking out the extra scoop of whey and adding more carbohydrates or fats instead to make up for the calories.

go for MORE

better to be overprepared/overly supplied nutritional to fulfill metabolic needs, rather then not enough. with more, you can always make changes and cut back. whereas with less its hard to build upon.
