For several months now I've been making fruit smoothies using only raw fruit and ice cubes. The result is, well, crushed juicy ice!
I don't like adding any kind of milk or milk-substitute product, and I find that water, even ice cold water, just doesn't do the trick. Is using ice ok, in raw food terms? It may sound like a daft question but I want to ensure I'm not doing anything to affect nutrient absorption or anything like that. None of the green juice or fruit smoothie recipes I've found on raw food websites mention ice so I'm not sure.
