Red Sea Moss Benefits + Recipe

We all know I LOVE trying a new food trend. When I heard all the hype surrounding red sea moss, I had to try it.  If you are unfamiliar with red sea moss, it is popular in Ireland and Jamaica.  It has a ton of health benefits including the following:

Calcium

Vitamin B12, B1, and B2

Zinc

Iron

Magnesium

Amino Acids

It has also been shown to treat diabetes, the cold, and the flu.

Red Sea Moss Recipe

Ingredients

4 tbsp red sea moss puree (you can purchase red sea moss here).

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Cinnamon to taste

1/3 cup honey

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

24 hours before making the smoothie, rinse the dried red sea moss to remove all sand and salt. Note: I used an entire bag.

Place the dried red sea moss in about 4 cups of water to begin re-hydrating it.

Replace the water every 6 hours (I went 8 hours without replacing the water overnight and it was fine).

The red sea moss should be fully hydrated after 24 hours and should have a slippery gelatinous feel similar to seaweed. Puree it in a blender and set aside 4 tbsp. You can place the rest in an airtight container and store it in your refrigerator.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until well incorporated.
