We tend to think of the pineapple coconut combo as a tropical summer drink. However, pineapple is full of bromelain which is good for thinning mucous, so it is great to help clear a summer cold – or a fall cold, or an anytime cold, for that matter.

And coconut anything is brilliant! We have run clear of it for decades, being told it is too high in fat, but those fats have now been discovered to be good for us. Do remember, though, all things in moderation; they are fats.

This tasty, filling smoothie is from Mike, a triathlete and Ironman, writing at TheIronYou – see the end of the post for the details. Mike writes …

… the entire thing only has 245 calories, and this makes a huge smoothie.
It’s thick, creamy, rich, and so delicious.
This smoothie isn’t very sweet so if you like something sweeter I suggest you add one more tablespoon of maple syrup (or coconut sugar).
