A Step-by-step Guide to Making Fruit-Infused Sea Moss Gel

Last updated on November 23, 2022

Fruit-infused sea moss gels

Fruit-infused sea moss gel is a great way to spice up your sea moss routine. While you can incorporate sea moss into your morning smoothie, coffee, or food, you may prefer keeping things separate and taking your two daily tablespoons of gel alone.

Pure sea moss gel is almost tasteless. An excellent way to get more zing and flavor is to infuse it with fresh fruits. Fruit-infused sea moss gel boosts, even more, your nutrient intake and complements the 92 minerals and vitamins already found in Chondrus crispus (sea moss's scientific name).

So, here’s how to make fruit-infused sea moss gel at home and the answers to the most frequently asked questions about flavoring sea moss.

How to Make Fruit-Infused Sea Moss Gel

There are two ways to make fruit-infused sea moss gel. You can prepare it from scratch with dried sea moss or flavor store-bought ready-to-use sea moss gel.

How much fruit do you need? 

The amount of fruit you need to infuse your sea moss gel depends on several factors, including:

  • The fruits you’re using. Watery fruits, like strawberries, pineapple, or melon, tend to liquify your gel. Thicker fruits like bananas, mango, dates, figs, or others give your gel a thicker consistency.
  • The consistency and the flavor strength you like.

As a rule, add 1 to 2 cups of fruits per ounce of dehydrated sea moss.

How Long Does Fruit-Infused Sea Moss Last?

Sea moss gel is made from wildcrafted seaweeds, and like any food or vegetable, it has a limited shelf life and spoils with time. So, for ultimate freshness, we recommend our customers keep our organic sea moss gel for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.

Sea moss gel may spoil even faster when infused with fresh or frozen fruits. To prevent it from going bad, keep it in an airtight container, store it in the fridge, and consume it rapidly. Fruit-infused sea moss gel will last 2 to 3 weeks max.

What are other ways to flavor sea moss gel?

While raw sea moss may taste like the ocean and remind you of oysters or clams, sea moss gel is almost tasteless. That makes it easy to flavor and incorporate into your favorite recipes without altering their flavors. Sea moss gel can be flavored with fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, plants, sweeteners, etc. It can also be added to smoothies, drink, or food recipes.

Is flavored sea moss good for you?

Sea moss gel infused with natural fruits or ingredients is as good for you as pure sea moss gel. In fact, adding organic fruits, plants, or spices can only enhance its natural benefits for health. That being said, be careful about store-bought flavored sea moss gel and always inquire about the ingredients.

Whether flavored or not, eating sea moss gel daily brings numerous health benefits, including weight management, heart health, immunity boosting, and many others.

How much flavored sea moss gel can you take?

Sea moss gel is safe and causes very few side effects, but it should be consumed in moderation. Due to its high iodine content, overconsuming Chondrus crispus could lead to iodine poisoning.

You can safely consume 1 to 4 tablespoons of sea moss gel daily. That's enough to reap all its benefits while staying within safe margins.
