Ingredients You’ll Need To Make This Chocolate Sea Moss Smoothie With Raspberries:
- Cucumber: rich in silica, which promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails. Silica is great for promoting hair growth! I go over a delicious hair growth smoothie and foods that promote hair growth in this fun youtube video.
- Avocado: rich in amino acids, healthy fats, and Omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health
- Flax Seeds: Rich in Protein & Omega-3 Fatty acid, great for digestive health and reducing bad cholesterol.
- Cacao: (not to be mistaken with Dutch-processed Cocoa Powder) Rich in antioxidants, calcium, and potassium, which is great for increasing brain health & reducing inflammation.
- Raspberries: Super Antioxidant Rich and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, great for reducing inflammation and boosting immune health.
- Sea Moss Gel: Prepare your sea moss gel ahead of time so that it is ready to use. Want to learn how to prepare it? Check out this post here: How To Make Sea Moss Gel.
- Non-Dairy Milk: Use whichever non-dairy milk you desire. I like to use plain unsweetened almond milk.
Sea Moss Benefits
- Sea Moss is rich in amino acids, vitamin c, vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and minerals.
- It actually contains 92 of the 102 minerals that our bodies need like zinc, iodine, iron, and more!
- Because it is a mucilaginous food (sticky and thick), it helps soothe the mucus membranes in the body and rid your body of any excess mucus. It is especially helpful in reducing congestion and clearing out phlegm buildup in the lungs, which is great for respiratory health–especially when you are dealing with a cold.

Medjool Dates Benefits
Dates are considered “Nature’s Candy”.
- They are super sweet and provide delicious flavor. Instead of using processed sweeteners, try dates or date syrup.
- If you’re craving a sweet treat, try eating a date or two.
- Not only do they taste great, but they are loaded with fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, more that help increase energy, improve digestion, and reduce blood pressure. (source)

This Chocolate Raspberry Sea Moss Smoothie is:
- Energy Boosting
So here is my morning smoothie routine.
I start my mornings by first drinking a huge glass of water (about 18oz) and then I’ll make a smoothie. In the morning, when your stomach is empty is the best time to drink a smoothie because your body will better absorb all the nutrients and it also gives you a kickstart to your day.
How To Store This Chocolate Sea Moss Smoothie:
This smoothie recipe gives you two servings. I usually share a serving with my partner or save a jar for later. You can store this smoothie in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a day. It is best to drink the smoothie soon after preparing it to receive the most benefits.
A question I get often is: Is this Smoothie a Meal replacement?
You can have this smoothie in the morning as your meal. Sometimes I will do somewhat of a liquid fast in the morning and drink my water and have my smoothie, then I will eat a hearty lunch at noon. Other days, I’ll have my smoothie with a muffin, like these Healthy Zucchini Blueberry Muffins or a bowl of granola, like this Honey Almond Granola. The choice is yours! Listen to your body and do what works best for you. 🙂
