How To Make Sea Moss Gel
Note: These are instructions to make thick and creamy sea moss gel, based on the blender you may have. Some blenders will make the sea moss gel the consistency of applesauce. You will have to experiment with your blender to get the consistency you prefer.
Soaking the Sea moss
- Take .5 oz of dry sea moss, give it a quick rinse to remove any sand or salt and place it in a bowl.
- Pour some alkaline water in the bowl until it has covered the dry sea moss. The sea moss will began to rehydrate. Keep in mind that dry sea moss will double in size once rehydrated. Any sea moss that is not submerged in the water will not rehydrate.
- Add a fresh lime and its juice to the bowl.
- Allow sea moss to soak for 24 hours, changing the water every 4 hours, and turning your sea moss.
Note: Do not toss your water, it is full of nutrients and can be used to water your plants, soak your feet or your hands.
Blending Your Sea moss
- Take your rehydrated sea moss and place it in a blender. Based on the size of the blender you have, you may have to blend in batches.
- Add 2 cups of alkaline water and blend until it is smooth. You may have to add more or less alkaline water, based on the amount of sea moss you rehydrated. Be careful not to add too much water. Too much water will not allow the sea moss to gel; it will keep a watery consistency. (Note: Don’t throw away your sea moss if it doesn’t gel, it is still full of nutrients and ok to consume). The more you practice making sea moss gel, the better you will get at the measurements.
- Pour your sea moss in a glass jar with a lid and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the sea moss to gel for 24 hours before using it.
- Sea moss gel must be kept refrigerated and will keep for a month or longer without spoilage. Fruit Infused sea moss gel when stored properly can last between 3 to 4 weeks. Do not consume fruit infused sea moss gel that is older than 30 days. Frozen sea moss gel has a shelf life of 3 months.
