From thickening sauces and soups to creating vegan ice cream and candy with its sticky consistency, sea moss can be a great addition to your kitchen. Also known as Irish moss, sea moss is a superfood that's been getting more popular over the last couple of years. That's no surprise given how many health benefits and uses it has!
Use sea moss gel in creating the following recipes to give your health and that of your loved ones a boost!
Chocolate Raspberry Sea Moss Smoothie
This should take 6 minutes at most; 3 for prep, 3 for cooking. It's a smoothie rich in antioxidants with ingredients rich in nutrients. A great treat at any time of the day, especially for kids!
1/4 cup sea moss gel
1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 1/2 cup milk (non-dairy or almond)
1 small cucumber
1 tbsp flax seeds (ground)
2 tbsp cacao powder (raw)
3 dates (remove the pits)
Ice is optional or as needed
- Combine ingredients in blender.
- Make sure to blend until it's smooth and has no clumps.
- Serve in a glass and enjoy!
Should it be thicker than what you prefer in a smoothie, add more milk! If it's too thin, ice can thicken it up quick. For an extra kick, protein powder can be added, but it's not required.
Sea Moss Gummies
Set aside around two hours for this.
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp agar agar
2 tbsp citric acid
2 tsp honey
3 tbsp sea moss gel
- Mix juice and agar agar.
- Place mixture on stove; bring to a boil.
- Add honey, mixing until it's dissolved fully.
- Add sea moss, mixing until it's dissolved fully.
- Add citric acid, mixing until it's dissolved fully.
When it's in a gummy, the body will get nearly all of the 102 minerals it needs easily! This is also ideal for digestion support, reducing mucus, helping weight loss along and even detoxification.
Bonus: Sea Moss As A Face Mask
Aside from eating sea moss, using it as a natural skin care element is beneficial. The body produces collagen better thanks to the algae, to the point that some people have given it the moniker "vegan collagen."
1 tbsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp sea moss gel
- Mix until as smooth as possible.
- Use the final mixture as a facial mask once or twice a week.
Aside from moisturizing the skin, turmeric adds anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities to the mask. Someone suffering from unexpected, unwanted breakouts will benefit from this in particular. Other ingredients that can be used with or instead of turmeric include kelp, spirulina, maca and chlorella. Sometimes, even a berry or two will do wonders.
Sea moss is incredibly beneficial for human health and has made a name for itself as a superfood! It can be used for smoothies such as the chocolate raspberry sea moss smoothie and in gummies. Additionally, sea moss can also be used for skin care in face masks.
