Sea moss is a superfood with little taste but a lot of texture. This makes it great for health and changing the texture of some of your favorite foods. In fact, a lot of people use sea moss as a thickener in their smoothies. If this sounds like a good idea to you, follow these four sea moss smoothie recipes to try this fall.
Preparing Your Sea Moss
The first thing you need to do is prepare your sea moss for your smoothie. The best kind of sea moss for a smoothie is organic wildcrafted sea moss, as it has all the nutrients and better texture. Start by cleaning off your moss with water until you see no more debris. Next, soak your sea moss for a day, changing out the water every few hours. Then blend the moss into the desired consistency.
Apple Spice Smoothie
Start with a medium-sized apple and half a tablespoon of cinnamon to put in your smoothie. You’ll want some milk or almond milk for the base of your smoothie; some people like to add in honey for flavor. Add one cup of Greek yogurt to give it some more flavor and sea moss to thicken the drink. Put it all in the blender with as much ice as possible and blend to the consistency you want.
Continuing with the fruit theme, grab a handful of strawberries (about one cup) and some yogurt, if you want it. Pour in ice and the other ingredients, adding the milk at the end. Plenty of people add sweetener, but the fruit might be enough for you. Add your sea moss for texture and blend your drink. You can take out some strawberries and add other berries to create a fruit medley smoothie.
Thick Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Pumpkin’s an all-time favorite flavor of fall time, making it great for a smoothie flavor. If you can get pumpkin puree for the smoothie, do so. However, replacing the pumpkin with bananas, Greek yogurt, and pumpkin spice can work. Add in your milk and ice for consistency along with the sea moss. Add sweetener to your preference and blend to the consistency you want.
We’ll end this list strong with a thick chocolate smoothie. The trick is to use cacao, about two to four teaspoons, to create a powerful flavor. A bit of vanilla extract and a full banana add a lot to this smoothie. Yet again, milk and ice are key for finishing this up; add sea moss for a different consistency and your health. Blend it all up to get the chocolate smoothie you want.
These four sea moss smoothie recipes to try this fall should give you enough ideas to perfect your smoothie taste. Enjoy your delicious creations!
