mÃ¢che (a type of lettuce), also called lamb's lettuce
PUT ALL INGREDIENTS IN BLENDER. WHIR UNTIL WELL BLENDED
Kendra Far Above Rubies's ThoughtsBy Kendra Far Above Rubies
Since there aren’t many green foods that I can get my niece to consume, I decided to make her a green smoothie. If I had told her that I was giving her fruit with a green leafy vegetable, well, I’ll put it this way…she ain’t even tryin’ to hear it! So I made the drink and served it to her without her seeing what I was doing. The smoothie turned purple, so I gave it a fun name, which seems to work for children these days. Afterall, they do eat GREEN catchup, why not a purple smoothie called a purple dinosaur. I should’ve named it Barney, but I wasn’t sure how she’d like drinking a Barney…lol! Anyway, since mÃ¢che are so tender and have such a delicate flavor, the strawberries masked it very well, and I was able to add quite a bit. She asked no questions as to why it was purple. Perhaps she thought I added berries…ha ha ha. She just drank it then kept playing her video game. ;-) I’ll put up a photo the next time I make one.
NOTE: MEASUREMENTS ARE SET TO YOUR LIKING
NOTE: WHEN YOU ASK FOR MÃ‚CHE IN THE STORE, IT IS PRONOUNCED Mosh. BUT SOME PRONOUNCE IT “Mah-shay” BUT I’M NOT SURE THAT’S CORRECT. MÃ¢che is a baby lettuce. Romaine lettuce substitutes very well or you can use baby spinach.
