If you want to try something new, excite your family, or just find a great alternative to your favorite coffee that gives you a strong jolt, you’ve come to the correct address. We’re going to reveal three thrilling Irish moss drink recipes that will brighten up your day and, hopefully, help you commit to the beneficial Red algae seaweed! These recipes are vegan-friendly, but you can adjust them as you wish using ingredients that work for you.

What is Irish moss?

If you haven’t yet managed to join this sea-moss wave, we are obliged to fill you in. Briefly speaking, Irish sea moss, or Chondrus crispus, is a Red algae species that for centuries has been used in many industries, especially in culinary — for its natural thickening agent carrageenan.

Sea moss is a seaweed, so it’s vegan-friendly. Its fame revolves around its vast nutritional content. According to the US Department of Agriculture, Chondrus crispus is a source of:

 ✔️Trace minerals (iron, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, zink, copper…)
✔️Antioxidants (A, E, and C)
✔️B-group vitamins
✔️Amino-acids (glycine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, tryptophan…)
✔️Omega fatty acids

Wrapping up, Irish sea moss is a dense-nutrient seaweed beneficial for human beings and also useful as a culinary ingredient.

What is sea moss gel?

The gel from Red algae is True Sea Moss’ hallmark, as we co-worked with the finest food suppliers in California to bring the most unique, harmonic, delicious, and health-beneficial gels to the market.

In plain English, a gel from the Irish sea moss is a raw sea moss root blended with a cup of spring water, and some other ingredients (optionally). At True Sea Moss we vouch for our gels, as they contain zero artificial additives, sugar, or preservatives, and are only sweetened with farm-harvested, genuine fruits.

Gels are not the only sea moss supplement version offered, but it’s the most advantageous, due to other ingredients in its content. Besides, it’s quite yummy — you can eat it standalone or mix it with your drinks, oatmeal, and other snacks.

Why consume Irish sea moss daily?

When it comes to Irish moss, you have to stick to it. It’s a highly rewarding experience that will keep you healthy and sustainable for years. If you are committed to the seaweed — it will show its loyalty as well. So, here are some of the most sought-after effects of the Red algae:

  • Stronger immunity. Antioxidants of Irish moss may contribute to your immune system, significantly improving your well-being and making you more resistant to viruses.
  • Clean and glowy skin. Sea moss was linked to prebiotic and collagen-boosting effects on the skin. It is also known for its demulcent properties that can help you treat skin impurities(1) (eczema, acne, and psoriasis).
  • Great gut health. Being a solid prebiotic(2), Irish moss can help promote the growth of your gut bacteria. It can also soothe inflammation in the mucous membrane, which is beneficial for your bowel well-being.
  • Mood support. Brimming with amino acids(3), Irish moss might positively impact your brain, making brain fog fizzle out, and providing the ability to focus throughout the day.
  • Improved stress-resistance. Packed with zinc, magnesium, taurine, and some amino acids like glycine, GABA, tyrosine, sea moss might provide you with a deeper sleep(4) and vastly improve your stress resistance. It is especially advantageous for people with depression, anxiety, or mental breakdown.

How to make your sea moss drink vegan-friendly?

A cakewalk!

If you are vegan or want your drinks to simply not contain any animal products, you can easily switch all ingredients to their plant alternatives:

 🥛Milk — switch to almond milk, it’s sweeter and lighter than other plant-based milk, but not that watery.

🍯Honey — switch to stevia, agave syrup, or maple syrup. If you’re a calorie-watcher, replace sugar with stevia and almond milk with coconut milk.

Now, you’re all set and ready to learn how to make Irish moss drinks!
