Sensational Sea Moss Smoothie Recipes
Have you heard of sea moss? It’s quickly becoming the next big thing in the health world. Sea Moss can be found in most health food stores, and you can also purchase it here. Irish Sea Moss is raw, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and it has 92 essential minerals. The health benefits abound! Once you purchase the sea moss, the next step is to prepare it for consumption. I don’t know about you, but while I enjoy seafood and seaweed, I struggle with anything that is super fishy. So preparing the sea moss is important! Once you’ve got your sea moss ready, the only other tool you need is a good blender. You really can’t go wrong with this one! Then you’ll be ready to make one of these sensational sea moss smoothie recipes.
Prepared Sea Moss
- 1 c. Sea Moss
- 1½-2 c. Springwater
- Start by rinsing a handful of moss. Inspect it for sea debris, sand, and other defects. When it is cleaned and ready, place the moss into enough water to cover it and soak for 4-24 hours at room temperature. Rinse the moss and change out the water every 4-6 hours. The sea moss should become translucent, soft, and double in size. When this happens, drain and rinse one more time.
- Then place the prepared sea moss into a blender with the spring water and blend until smooth and creamy. Place the mixture into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least an hour until it thickens.
Once you’ve prepared your sea moss, you’re ready for the next step: cooking with it! You can put it in any of your favorite smoothie recipes. It has a potent flavor, so play with it to get the balance right. Below you will find two of my favorite smoothie recipes to use with sea moss.
