How Do You Make Sea Moss Gel?

Sea moss gel is one of the easiest ways to adapt your sea moss for regular consumption. Check out our simple step-by-step process to turn your sea moss into gel.

Sea Moss Gel: Step by Step

  1. Clean sea moss: soak, massage, and rinse dry sea moss in cold water with some fresh lemon juice.
  2. After cleaning, place the sea moss in a large bowl and cover it with cold filtered, alkaline, or spring water. Make sure all the parts of the sea moss are covered. Then, cover the sea moss and allow it to soak for 12 hours.
  3. Using a high-powered blender, add 1 part Sea Moss and 2 parts of the water that was used to soak the sea moss. Adjust the water for your desired consistency and blend for 1 – 3 minutes.
  4. Refrigerate for at three hours and the sea moss gel will thicken.
  5. It can last in the fridge for up to 60 days. You can store it in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Note: Dry sea moss (unsoaked and raw) can be stored for up to one year in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
