Before Making It, Why Will You Enjoy It?
Sea moss gel benefits are as rich as the ingredients used to make it. The main ingredient is rich in amino acids, vitamin c, vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and minerals, 92 of the 102 our bodies need, to be exact. These include zinc, iodine, iron, and more! Due to its mucilaginous (sticky and thick) texture, sea moss helps soothe the mucus membranes and helps your body eliminate excess mucus.
It is also a prebiotic that helps get rid of bad bacteria in the gut, further increasing digestive health. Sea moss also benefits your skin by removing and improving eczema, psoriasis, and acne outbreaks. Lastly, it also aids in weight loss and helps improve metabolism.
Let’s Get to Making It: The Ingredients
You only need four ingredients in this recipe to enjoy the many sea moss gel benefits:
- Sea moss: This is a key ingredient! You'll need to prepare your sea moss by cleaning and soaking it before making the gel.
- Organic fresh or frozen fruit: It's important to use organic fruit for this recipe. If you're using frozen fruit, let it thaw first.
- Organic Medjool pitted dates: Dates are a natural sweetener perfect for smoothies, drinks, and desserts. They help sweeten the sea moss gel and create a smooth consistency.
- Alkaline water: Use alkaline water to prepare the sea moss gel. If you cleaned your sea moss before soaking it, and the water is free from dirt and debris, you can use the reserved water to soak the sea moss.
Let’s Get to Making It: The Process
- Sanitize raw sea moss: As mentioned earlier, use alkaline water to remove any dirt or debris. Give them a good rinse, then soak for at least half a day, a maximum of one day.
- After your sea moss has soaked for at least 12–24 hours, gather the rest of the ingredients to make the gel. If you're using frozen fruit, let it thaw first. Also, soak the dates for at least 30 minutes before making the gel.
- Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth, 1-3 minutes. It is best to start on low and gradually increase to high.
- Move the sea moss into an airtight container or mason jar, and refrigerate. The sea moss gel will thicken in the fridge after approximately two hours.
- Take out from the refrigerator and enjoy!
Oh, and one last thing: start with one cup of water and add more as needed to get the desired consistency (thick or slippery).
