Sea moss, also known as Irish moss, is a type of red algae that is commonly found along the Atlantic coastlines of Europe and North America.
It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its various health benefits, including its high mineral content, anti-inflammatory properties, and ability to boost the immune system.
One way to incorporate sea moss into your diet is by making sea moss gummies. Not only are they a fun and delicious way to consume sea moss, but they are also easy to make at home.
Sea Moss Gummies Recipe
Here’s a recipe for sea moss gummies:
- 1 cup sea moss gel
- 1/2 cup fruit juice (such as orange, cranberry, or pineapple)
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (optional)
- 1/4 tsp citric acid (optional for added tanginess)
- Gummy bear molds
- Start by making the sea moss gel. Soak 1 cup of dried sea moss in water for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain the water and rinse the sea moss thoroughly to remove any sand or debris.
- Blend the soaked and rinsed sea moss with 2 cups of fresh water until smooth and gel-like. You can strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove any bits of sea moss that didn’t blend completely.
- In a small pot, combine the fruit juice and sweetener (if using) over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
- Stir in the sea moss gel and citric acid (if using) into the pot with the fruit juice mixture. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
- Remove the pot from the heat and pour the mixture into the gummy bear molds. Let the gummies cool and solidify in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
- Once the gummies are firm, remove them from the molds and enjoy! Store the gummies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
This recipe is a great way to enjoy the health benefits of sea moss in a delicious, convenient form. You can also play around with different fruit juice and sweetener combinations to create a variety of flavored gummies.
