If I was sick, I wouldn't want to be fluffing about doing all of that. I would be happy with a good old cup of tea, and possibly a little fruit or a nice, tasty consommé, and maybe (or maybe not), with a bit of toast.
Coconut water is high in potassium but relatively low in sugar, so it's a good rehydration aide. As previously mentioned, the vitamin C in the fruit might or might not help, but certainly can't hurt. This undoubtedly would make someone feel better as they're recovering-- especially if someone else makes it for them!
The extra Vitamin C won't hurt and the honey might soothe your throat if it is sore. However,the flu and colds are caused by viruses and there isn't anything in the smoothie that is going to hurt them. Remembering to eat well, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest are your best bet for feeling better faster.
