Is it redundant to add coconut oil to a coconut milk smoothie?

That's my question. I've been eating less coconut oil now that I've been having smoothies for breakfast. Am I missing out on something? Or does the coconut milk cover it all? I'm referring to nutritional content here. Thanks!

Does it remind you of Bubble tea? :)

I have to admit I like the small beads of solidified coconut oil in my smoothie. :)

The only thing is that if your smoothie is sufficiently cold, i.e colder than like 50F, then the coconut oil tends to solidify. Even if you whip it up in a good blender, you'll get small, crunchy "beads" of coconut oil in yer smoothie. Ask me how I know this. :p

Maybe not redundant, but the oil is excessive and the similarity is repititous.
