Seaweed Smoothies To Surprise and Delight

irish moss recipes

Seaweed is a nutrition powerhouse – definitely one of nature’s superfoods, it simply contains everything the body requires: all minerals, trace elements & vitamins, essential amino & fatty acids, anti-oxidants, fibre, protein, no cholesterol, very low fat, low GI sugars, and a store of life extending compounds that science is just starting to understand. Seaweed is cleansing, nourishing and incredibly re-generating.

It is essential to eat (or drink) seaweed regularly to nourish & replenish the various functions of the body; nutritional deficiency and body balance are complex problems that can’t be resolved overnight but rather through a consistent process that strengthens every cell in the body.

Seaweed can be consumed in many forms in all meals & dishes, even in desserts! It is also an excellent addition to cereals & smoothies to start the day nutritiously.

What about the Seaweed taste in a smoothie?!

Only small amounts of seaweed are required in smoothies because of their high concentration in nutrients.

You can rehydrate seaweed in juice, tea or other liquids with flavour to reduce the ‘sea’ smell and taste if desired.
