30 Bananas a Day!

Can coconut be combined with fruits? I'm confused because it is a nut and I have been eating it with salads but I was wondering if it would be okay to add to a mango fruit salad. Thoughts?? Thank you!

Do you mean young/immature coconut or mature coconut?

The macronutrient composition of the two differs quite a bit.

Young coconuts are low in fat (see: http://www.livestrong.com/article/277669-young-coconut-nutrition-in...) whereas mature ones are high in fat (see: http://www.livestrong.com/article/390337-nutrition-information-of-a...).

I guess both... So I'm guessing the young I can and the mature I can't? Thank you!

Yes, I think immature coconuts, which are mostly water anyways, should be okay with fruit, but I wouldn't mix mature ones with fruit due to their high fat content. However, I'm just basing my reasoning on common sense here, I'm certainly no expert on food combining ;-)

Haha okay thank you for your input!
