here is my current mass gainer (homemade)

-5 strawberries
-1 cup oats
-2 scoops whey
-1 chobani greek yogurt
-2 tbsp peanutbutter
-1/1.5 cups milk

comes out around 1000 calories, 28 fat grams, 110 carbs, 46 sugars..., and 80g of protein.

So my question is, is this shake that i make right now ok or is it too sugary to have 2 of them a day. if i should take a mass gainer, which would you recommend?

Looks good but add Banana for some potassium
Natural PB if not already.
I get the mixed berries frozen....when they are on sale. Works great

Sugar content is fine. Mostly natural sugars.

strawberries and PB? sounds kinda gross =x use a tbsp canola or extra virgin olive oil for your fat instead, you wont taste it in there. use the PB w/ the milk/banana type shakes.
