Sea moss is one of the few superfoods in the world. Adding sea moss to your diet can benefit you in so many ways. While you can take sea moss capsules, there are other ways to incorporate it into your day. One of the best ways to take sea moss is by making a drink with it. There are numerous sea moss drink recipes available. You can even make sea moss smoothies to switch things up a little. Of course, you could also simply add sea moss gel to your morning bowl of oatmeal or yogurt if you are short on time.
What Does Sea Moss Taste Like?
Most of the time, people are turned off by sea moss, because they have no idea what it tastes like. They think it tastes gross, since it is harvested from the ocean. However, sea moss is quite good.
It does have a slightly salty taste when eaten alone. When the sea moss is combined with other ingredients though, it actually absorbs the flavors of those ingredients. So, you shouldn’t be afraid to try this superfood that offers so many benefits.
Plus, as I just mentioned, making a sea moss drink is one of the best ways to add sea moss to your diet without the salty taste. All you will taste is the fruit or vegetables you put in your drink. But how do you add the sea moss to the drink?
Well, you use sea moss gel. You can purchase multiple types of sea moss gel flavors, or you can make your own.
How to Make Sea Moss Gel
Making sea moss gel is simple. All you need to do is soak dry sea moss in water for approximately twelve hours. Once the dry sea moss has been rehydrated, you can rinse it off.
Add the now rehydrated sea moss to a blender and mix with the water it was soaking in until it is smooth.
Place the sea moss into a container with a lid and put it in the refrigerator overnight. By morning, you will have a gel-like substance.
Yes, it is simpler to purchase the gel online. However, knowing how to make your own is helpful when you run out of gel and only have dry sea moss on hand.
