SEA MOSS BENEFITS
- Sea Moss is rich in amino acids, vitamin c, vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and minerals.
- It contains 92 of the 102 minerals that our bodies need like zinc, iodine, iron, and more!
- Because it is mucilaginous (sticky and thick), it helps soothe the mucus membranes in the body and helps your body get rid of any excess mucus.
- Sea Moss is also a prebiotic and helps to get rid of bad bacteria in the gut, which further increases digestive health.
- Sea Moss is also great for your skin! It helps improve eczema, psoriasis, and acne outbreaks.
- Sea Moss also aids in weight loss and helps improve metabolism
What Do You Need To Make Fruit Infused Sea Moss Gel?
You’ll need 4 Simple Ingredients:
Organic Fresh or Frozen Fruit: In my video, I show how to make fruit-infused sea moss gel with both fresh and frozen fruit. I do this mainly to highlight that there is almost no difference in using fresh vs frozen fruit. What is most important is that any fruit you use is organic. If you use frozen fruit, let it thaw first.
Organic Medjool Pitted Dates: Dates are considered “Nature’s Candy” and are the perfect natural sweetener to add to smoothies, drinks, desserts, anything you can think of! They are perfect in this recipe because not only do they help sweeten the sea moss gel, but they also help to create a smooth consistency. Here are the Medjool Dates I use.
Sea Moss: But, of course! You’ll need to prepare your sea moss as you normally would by cleaning and soaking it first to make this fruit-infused gel. If you are unsure how to prepare sea moss, check out my post here: How To Prepare Sea Moss (the right way!!).
Alkaline Water: Use alkaline water when preparing your sea moss gel. If you thoroughly cleaned your sea moss prior to soaking and the water is free from any dirt/debris, you can also use the reserved water that was used to soak the sea moss.
How To Make Fruit Infused Sea Moss Gel?
- Clean and Soak the Raw Sea Moss: For details on how to prepare your sea moss to make sea moss gel, check out my post and step-by-step video here: How To Prepare Sea Moss.
- Gather Your Ingredients. Once your sea moss has soaked for at least 12-24 hours, gather your remaining ingredients to make the gel. If you are using frozen fruit, let it thaw before using it. Also, allow the dates to soak for at least 30 minutes before making the gel.
- In a high-powered blender (I use Vitamix 5200 Blender Professional-Grade), transfer all of your ingredients and blend until smooth, about 1-3 minutes. I usually start the blender on low and gradually increase to the highest setting.
- Transfer the Sea Moss into an airtight container/mason jar, and refrigerate. The sea moss gel will thicken in the fridge after approximately 2 hours.
Important To Note:
- When blending your sea moss gel, use 1 cup of water to start and add more depending on the consistency you would like your gel.
Common Questions/ FAQs
How Long Does Fruit Infused Sea Moss Gel Last?
2-3 weeks in the refrigerator
Your fruit-infused sea moss gel should be kept in an airtight container, stored in the refrigerator, and will last 2-3 weeks. You can also store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Try pouring it into an ice-cube tray and freeze the sea moss for later use. This is perfect for taking the cubes and throwing them into your smoothies.
Does Sea Moss Gel Expire (Go Bad)?
Yes, it does. Sea Moss Gel typically lasts for 3-4 weeks (refrigerated). It is a natural organic seaweed (sea algae) and must be kept in the refrigerator. Sea Moss Gel is perishable and will deteriorate over time.
Dry Sea Moss (unsoaked and raw) can be stored for up to one year in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
What does spoiled sea moss smell like?
Always be mindful of checking your sea moss gel before consuming it. Storing conditions vary and can impact how long the sea moss gel will last and be safe for consumption. If you open your sea moss gel and it has a pungent fishy smell, smells sour, or has any signs of molding or discoloration, this indicates that the sea moss has spoiled. Do not consume it and make sure to immediately throw it in the trash.
How Much Sea Moss Gel Should I Put In My Smoothies? (How much Sea Moss To Take Daily?)
The recommended amount of sea moss to ingest daily is 1 to 2 tablespoons or 4 to 8 grams.
What Sea Moss Do I Use?
There are several species of seaweed that are commonly referred to as sea moss. The most popular and commonly used are Chondrus Crispus, Genus Gracilaria, and Eucheuma Cottonii.
I use Chondrus Crispus.
Where Do I Buy My Sea Moss?
I purchase my sea moss from Donata Skinfood. Always make sure you get your sea moss from a reputable source.

Sea Moss gel is a great addition to any smoothies or drinks, especially tea and coffee! Simply stir the sea moss into your drink and enjoy!

Glad to hear it, Amy!
I love sea moss and this recipe looks like it’s right up my alley. I love the idea and can’t wait to make this. Thanks for the recipe.
Thanks for all the great info. I just ordered some sea moss to make that fruit smoothie.
YESS! Happy to hear it!
I’ve been reading about sea moss, and couldn’t believe all the health benefits. Can’t wait to try this
Hi Tracey! It’s truly wonderful. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Who would have imagined sea moss could be used for making gels. I learned a lot today, and those applications with the fruit sound fantastic.
I am fascinated by sea moss…such a nutritional powerhouse and this is the best looking way to use it that most people would like. Love your tip to use the fruit gel in tea!
Excellent flavor and a super healthy drink to boot! Thank you for sharing.
I love it that it’s naturally sweetened. Definitely going to incorporate this into my daily routine.
Glad to hear it, Kate! Thanks for leaving a review!
I too am a fan of sea moss and but I’ve never made it myself. Your instructions were so easy to follow, I am elated I can finally make my beloved smoothies at home.
Hi Robin! That brings me so much joy! I am glad you enjoy the recipe!
I love the fact that the dates add natural sweetness without the need for adding additional sugar when making this delicious gel. This is definitely going to be a staple in my kitchen this summer.
HI Chef Mireille! I am glad to hear it! Thank you for leaving a review!
I haven’t been diligent with taking my sea moss and decided to make this. Now I look forward to a few spoonfuls in the morning. The perfect thing to prep and have in the fridge!
Hi Jessica! I am so happy to hear that you enjoy the recipe! I too love having this prepped and in the fridge! It makes taking my sea moss daily so much easier!
Thanks for sharing. They tasted delicious and gave me the energy boost I needed!
This was a first for me, and I’m so glad I tried it! I have some in the fridge now and it’s already ready to go. And it’s great in my smoothies.
HI Shanna! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks for leaving a review 🙂
SO glad I tried this! I made it with mangoes and it’s so good right out of the jar or stirred into a mug of tea. Thanks for this awesome idea!
I used your recipe to make strawberry sea moss gel and have been eating it straight from the jar, as you said. It’s delicious and I use all of it before worrying about it expiring!
I am so happy to hear that! Thanks for leaving a comment!
I started taking this fruit-infused sea moss gel every day with breakfast to get my day started with a bunch of nutrients and it’s SO good. It’s such a treat!
Hi Britney! I am happy to hear that and glad you like the recipe!
Why the dates….?
The dates are used to naturally sweeten the fruit-infused sea moss gel. You can also use agave, pure maple syrup, or simply omit the natural sweetener.
I used your recipe to make my own strawberry seamoss gel. Very simple and easy to follow. It truly is a delicious and nutritional treat.
Hi Nancy! I am so happy you liked the recipe!
Thank you for the great information. I am excited to make the fruit infused sea moss.
Thank you for this recipe! The fruit makes it easier to take, and I appreciate your clear instructions and demo. I made the mango version as well as a pineapple ginger version with lime. The citrus really helps cut the seaweed flavor as well. My 5 year old will take a scoop of it mixed with a little extra lime juice, honey and a little water. Much appreciated- great job on your site!
Hi Asha! I am so happy to hear that and even happier to hear your five-year-old is enjoying sea moss! Thank you for your kind words and for leaving a review!
Very awesome! How can you make these same recipes with the fruit into seamoss fruit gummies? Just heat them on the stove and add agar agar?
Hi Dee! I haven’t tried using fruit infused sea moss to make gummies. I am not sure how it would turn out. I think it would be better to mix the sea moss with 100% fruit juice (instead of elderberry ginger liquid) and use that as a gel to make fruit flavored sea moss gummies.
I love the dates as the sweetener! They are a much better sweetening option, in addition to their health benefits. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
You’re welcome, Diane! I am glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks for leaving a review 🙂
Thank you for sharing such a detailed post! This has been my go-to recipe to make fruit infused sea moss! I love it and my kids love it too!
Hi Erin! I am glad you find the information helpful and enjoy the recipe! Thanks for leaving a review 🙂
I loved, loved, LOVED this recipe. I’ve been reading about all the benefits of sea moss but was hesitant because I was afraid of how it might taste. This fruit infused recipe was just the nudge I needed to give it a try. Your instructions and video demo were very easy to follow and straight forward. Dates are foreign to me (look like little aliens, lol) but I pushed forward. I used frozen organic strawberries and blueberries and it was delicious. It has the consistency of applesauce and went down easy. I can see myself making this consistently and can’t wait to reap all the benefits of sea moss.
Hi Jessica!! I am so happy you gave the recipe a try and enjoy it! Blueberry and strawberries sound like a great combo! I am also glad I could introduce you to dates — they are one of my FAV natural sweeteners. Thanks so much for leaving a review and sharing pictures with me on Instagram! I truly appreciate it!
Hi, I know I’m going to love this fruit infused seamoss gel before I even try it. What I want to know is what do you do to keep your skin so beautiful? Thank you.
Hi Linda! Thank you so much! I actually just keep my skin care routine simple and have found that less is more. Sometimes I actually use sea moss as a facial. Mixed with turmeric powder, it is a great face mask to do weekly!
I’ve made regular sea moss gel and fruit infused sea moss gel using your recipes, I’m thinking of using frozen mangoes the next time I make infused sea moss gel, I need to know if I need to let the mangoes thaw before using them.
Hi LaVetta, when I used frozen mango in my video to make fruit infused sea moss gel, I let it thaw slightly at room temp before using.
I see you can substitute agave nectar for the dates. How much would I need of the agave?
Hi Tamara! Start with 2 tbsp agave syrup, taste, and add more as desired.
How do you freeze homemade sea moss? Or do you freeze the sea moss after it has been cleaned and use it later.
Hi Phyllis, you can freeze the sea moss gel in an ice cube tray after making the sea moss gel. Then, transfer it into a freezer safe bag and use it daily in your smoothies, drinks, or dishes. You can also freeze a large jar and keep it in the freezer. When ready to use it, let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Sea moss last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
I followed directions and even after being in fridge it’s way too watery. Anything I can do to thicken it after the fact?
Hi! You can blend in more (soaked) sea moss to help it thicken.
I have a nutri ninja blender and food processor – and am having trouble getting the sea moss blended smooth. My kids don’t love the texture of pieces. Any tips on getting it smooth?
Try blending it in smaller portions and add a bit more liquid. You can use water or 100%/fresh pressed fruit juice.
