10 Great Sea Moss Drink Ideas and Recipes!

Sea moss drink with leafy green vegetables

Sea moss, also known as Chondrus crispus or Irish moss, is an incredible gift from nature. The Atlantic alga, naturally loaded with minerals and vitamins, is a wonderful superfood to add to your daily routine. 

When turned into gel or powder, sea moss has a light flavor that is almost unnoticeable with foods or drinks. In addition, it's a vegan and dairy-free product with low calories and numerous health benefits.

Whether you’re into sea moss for weight loss, diabetes, immunity-boosting, skin appearance, detox, or simply for overall health and wellness improvement, we highly encourage you to start taking your two tablespoons a day!

A tasty and healthy way to do so is to have sea moss drinks. Sea moss drinks are very simple to make. Because sea moss gel and powder dissolve in water very well, you can add them to any of your preferred beverages. It's easy to blend and won't spoil the taste of your drinks.

Learn how to incorporate sea moss into your drinks, smoothies, juices, lemonades, teas, and coffees, or make your own sea moss water.

Sea moss smoothies

Smoothies are probably the most popular sea moss drinks. They are healthy, nutritious beverages with great health benefits. They're usually made with a liquid base (fruit juice, milk, yogurt, or other) and fruits, vegetables, or cereals pureed together in a blender.

Besides being super tasty, smoothies are packed with fibers and vitamins, contribute to your five fruits and vegetables a day, and improve overall health. In addition, these drinks are an excellent base for consuming food supplements like sea moss.

Sea moss gel is the most convenient form for smoothies, although you can also use sea moss powder or raw sea moss if you like the taste of it.

Sea Moss Drinking Water 

Sea moss water is water that has been infused with sea moss. That’s it! There are no other ingredients to it. It may seem too basic to be good, but sea moss water is a fantastic drink for health.

When soaked in water, dry sea moss releases nutrients, minerals, and vitamins into the water, making it a nutrient and electrolyte-rich beverage. It's excellent to improve hydration and provide the body with essential minerals such as iodine, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and many more. 

This natural drink is often used as a natural home remedy for weight loss, diabetes, digestive issues, immunity, thyroid dysfunction, etc. Drinking sea moss water daily can also improve your skin, hair, and nails.

You can drink pure sea moss water alone. But if you don't like the taste of it, you can use it as a base for other drinks like smoothies or teas or mix it with fruit juices, for example. Some people even use it to water plants!

How to make sea moss water

Making sea moss water at home is very simple. All you need is pure organic wildcrafted sea moss and some water. We recommend using spring water to benefit from more minerals and avoid impurities.

Instructions:

  1. Thoroughly wash the dried organic sea moss under water first
  2. Soak it in water overnight (6-12 hours). The less water, the more concentrated your sea moss water will be. The longer it soaks, the more concentrated.
  3. In the morning, strain out the sea moss
  4. That’s it!
  5. Drink it or use it as a base for other sea moss drinks.

Sea Moss Hot Drinks

You can add sea moss to hot drinks like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or even soup. The gel and powder don't deteriorate when added to warm beverages, but you should be careful not to boil them.

Can you put sea moss in coffee?

You can put sea moss in coffee. It’s a healthy way to enhance your morning coffee and give it some nutritional importance. Besides, coffee with sea moss tastes delicious!

You can use sea moss gel or sea moss powder to make coffee. Add two tablespoons of sea moss gel or 500mg to 3000mg of sea moss powder to your cup of coffee and stir until completely dissolved. The gel will slightly thicken your coffee, while the powder won't impact the texture.

You can also make coffee with sea moss water instead of regular water.
