Eating is a habit for most of us, so if you are looking to improve your quality of life, you must be honest about your consumption of mineral-rich foods in comparison to processed foods. A simple look at what ingredients we can sub or add in throughout our day to inch a little closer towards optimal health can make a big difference over time.

While adding Sea Moss to a recipe that didn't have it before can certainly boost the overall dishes' nutritional profile, you should still strive to avoid mixing them with refined sugars.

Morning Detox Smoothie

Berries, spices, and herbs are the richest sources of antioxidants; which protect our cells against free radical damage. They pretty much help your system function by optimizing blood and minimizing the strain of circulation

  • Handful of berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, rasberries, cherries, etc.)

  • 2 tablespoons of Sea Moss Gel (up to 4 if you are an athlete)

  • Spices (Add any of the following): Cinnamon, cacao, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper

  • Feel free to blend any herbs into it as well. Some favorites are fresh mint or green tea leaves (Matcha is actually just crushed up Green Tea leaves). They add a nice freshness to the drink

  • Optional: Banana and/or avocado

  • Walnuts, Macadamia, Hazelnut, Pistachio, or even coconut flakes. The fats from these help you absorb the other nutrients

  • Maca, Ashwagandha, Moringa

  • Hemp seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds

  • Fill with about 8-12oz (235ml - 355ml) of water

  • Replace with your choice of milk if you want a creamier texture


Post Training Recovery Antioxidant Shake

Sea Moss Protein shake
  • Handful of berries

  • 2 tablespoons of Sea Moss Gel (up to 4 if you are an athlete)

  • Banana and/or avocado

  • Protein powder (hemp seed and water lentil protein is very high quality and well absorbed by the body)

  • In absence, scoop of peanut butter

  • Teaspoon of any of the following: Cacao, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom

The Morning Detox Smoothie and the Recovery Shake are essentially the same drink with a few differences. The morning drink focuses more on just promoting circulation to the body for it to cleanse and wake up, while the recovery drink aims to add protein and some more calories in order to replenish what you just lost after physically exerting yourself.

Golden Milk

Golden Milk is another favorite for when you want something creamy and warm but would still like to take health benefits from. Golden Milk is full of antoxidants: cancer-fighting turmeric, black pepper that helps with absorption of nutrients, and cinnamon which has one of the highest antioixdant concentrations of all spices.

  • Nut milk

  • Turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon

  • 1 scoop of Sea Moss Gel

  • Optional Sweeteners: Date syrup or agave nectar (Low GI)

Simply heat up some nut milk and combine all ingredients in the pot.

Chickpea Curry

Chickpea Curry is a staple for me as it allows me to combine so many spices and other healthy ingredients to let them synergistically work together. The base recipe is straight-forward and easy, and the add-ons are simply for inspiration. Get creative and make it your own.

sea moss chickpea curry
  • Base: 1/2 an onion, 2 tablespoons of garlic, tomato paste, 1 tablespoon of oil

  • Coconut milk is optional for creaminess

  • Spices (any combination): Curry, Turmeric, Cumin, Paprika, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Oregano, Black pepper, Cayenne

  • 16oz (475ml) of chickpeas washed and rinsed

  • 2 scoops of Sea Moss Gel

  • Veggie Options: Cauliflower, peppers, sweet potato (boil first to reduce wait time), carrots, broccoli, mushrooms

  1. Cook the base and spices for 1 minute, adding the tomato paste last

  2. Add the vegetables into the sauce, cooking for 2 minutes.

  3. Add the chickpeas with the coconut milk and/or water. Depending on how much liquid you like in your curry, add more water (I usually do as I enjoy the sauce). Be generous with water added as the Sea Moss will thicken it later.

  4. Let it simmer until veggies are cooked (about 20-30min depending on what you added)

  5. Add the Sea Moss Gel towards the end of the cooking period to thicken the curry

  6. Salt to taste

Colombian Plantain Soup

This hearty soup has a delicious mix of green plantains and chickpeas with delicious Colombian flavors.

  5. Salt & lemon juice to taste, garnish with cilantro and sliced radish

Miso Ramen Bowl

One of my favorite dishes to add Sea Moss Gel to as the Miso combines really well in terms of flavor and texture.

  • Base: 2 chopped garlic cloves, 1-2 tablespoons of chopped ginger, 1.5 tablespoons white miso paste, 1 tablespoon tahini (optional), handful of mushrooms (preferably shiitake), 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 liter vegan stock (or veggie bouillon mixed with water)

  • Veggie options: pak choi, carrots, corn

  2. Add veggies and white part of the spring onions to the pan for 2 minutes, then add the stock and Sea Moss Gel

  3. While the soup simmers, cook the tofu in oil and soy sauce to the texture of your liking

  4. Cook the noodles for 1 minute less than pack instructions

  5. Place noodles into a bowl; pour broth. Garnish with cilantro, radish, green of the spring onion, and beansprouts. Add tofu on top and drizzle some sesame oil on top.

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

I was never a big fan of mousse... until I tried this one. This recipe is amazingly simple and it has the added benefit of being gelatinous, making it an easy dessert to load up with Sea Moss Gel.

  • 3-4 medium sized ripe avocados

  • 200 grams of dark chocolate (70% minimum)

  • One 400ml can of coconut milk

  • 5 tablespoons (74ml) of Sea Moss Gel

  1. Melt dark chocolate with coconut milk over medium heat

  2. Scoop out the avocados, add the Sea Moss and chocolate/coconut milk mix to a food processor or blender

  3. Process all the ingredients and pour out into a bowl

  4. Place in the fridge for about one hour to allow consistency to harden

  5. Topping options: Fruits, seeds, coconut flakes, nut butters, date syrup, sea salt


Banana Bread

You should be able to have your cake and eat it too. In this case, you can do both without feeling any guilt. The ingredients of this cake are all healthy, so you're literally healthier the more of it you eat! Moderation is always key, but when you make all of the ingredients healthy, that threshold becomes much harder to reach.

  • 125 grams of butter/plant-based alternative, 3/4 cup date sugar/coconut sugar/brown sugar

  • 2 eggs, 3-4 very ripe and mashed bananas, 1 cup Sea Moss Gel

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons of plant milk

  • 2 cups of spelt flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon

Feel free to add in whatever you like, such as chocolate chips, walnuts, hazelnuts, and chia seeds. I prefer mine with a scoop of peanut butter and a glass of hempseed (or your choice of) milk.

Vegan Rice Pudding

Rice pudding has always been a staple at Brazilian family gatherings. Unfortunately, due to the dairy and condensed milk, you'd have to be careful not to eat too much, or you'd end up paying for it later with stomach aches. This vegan version allows you to indulge without the guilt!

sea moss rice pudding vegan
  • 3 cups plant milk (preferably hazelnut, almond, or hempseed)

  • 1 can of coconut milk

  • 1 cup white rice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, pinch of salt

  • Sweetener options: 1/4 cup of coconut sugar, date syrup, agave nectar

  • 2-4 tablespoons of Sea Moss Gel

  1. In a large pot, cook the rice in half cup of water until it begins to dry out, medium heat

  2. Add in plant milk, coconut milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract

  3. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cook at a low simmer

  4. Add Sea Moss Gel & stir occasionally to make sure rice doesn't stick to the bottom

  5. Cook for about 20 minutes or until it reaches your desired thickness

  6. Add a pinch of salt and top with cinnamon. Add more sweetener if needed

  7. Cool in the fridge (my preference) or enjoy it warm!

Vegan Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

If I had to choose one Sea Moss recipe to make for a friend, it would be this one. This vegan cheesecake is filled with protein, minerals, healthy fats, and no guilt. Due to its' high nutrient density because of the ingredients, its also surprisingly filling. This is the perfect indulgent dessert for after dinner, or even as a mid day snack to help you power through your day. With Sea Moss, you can literally have your (cheese)cake and eat it too (bad joke).
