How To Make Sea Moss Gel?

Making sea moss gel is a straightforward process that allows you to enjoy the benefits of Kikaboni sea moss in various recipes. Here's a step-by-step guide:


  • Kikaboni dried sea moss (approximately 1/4 cup for a small batch)
  • Spring water or Purified water


  1. Rinse the Sea Moss:

    • Start by rinsing the dried sea moss thoroughly in fresh water to remove any debris, salt, or sand.
  2. Soak the Sea Moss:

    • Place the cleaned sea moss in a bowl and cover it with spring or purified water. Use enough water to ensure the sea moss is fully submerged.
    • Allow the sea moss to soak for about 8-12 hours. During this time, it will rehydrate and expand.
  3. Blending the Sea Moss:

    • After soaking, you'll notice that the sea moss has softened and expanded. Drain the soaking water.
    • Transfer the rehydrated sea moss to a blender. Add enough filtered water to cover the sea moss without drowning it (usually about 1-1.5 cups of water for a small batch).
  4. Blend Until Smooth:

    • Blend the sea moss and water until you achieve a smooth, gel-like consistency. You may need to scrape down the sides of the blender to ensure all the sea moss is fully blended.
  5. Store the Gel:

    • Pour the sea moss gel into a clean glass container or jar. Seal it with an airtight lid.
    • Store the sea moss gel in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks when refrigerated.
