Correspondingly, do I have to use ice in a smoothie?
They absolutely don't need ice. That being said,IWANT my green smoothies frozen, so I usefrozenfruit.
Similarly, does ice make a smoothie thicker? Any kind of crushed ice will thicken upyoursmoothies without adding any allergens at all. You canhavea ton of fun with making fruit-infused ice inyourice cube trays. Freeze whole fruit or fruit juiceinice trays, or you can even make coconutmilkice cubes to add to your smoothie.
Moreover, can you put ice cubes in a blender?
Unless you have a high-poweredblenderthat's up to the challenge, putting ice cubesin yourblender can dull the blade. Ditto for big chunks offrozenfruit. Use slightly thawed fruit (ten minutes out of thefreezershould do the trick) or crushediceinstead.
Are smoothies better with milk or water?
If you prefer a thicker consistency, use slightlylessliquid. Here are the liquids I recommend for makinghealthysmoothies: water (filtered or realspringwater), almond milk,coconutmilk/water, raw milk, organic fruitjuices,fresh squeezed or pressed juice, tea, and kefir (frommilkor coconut water).
