Tropical Sea Moss Smoothie

Are you looking for an easy and delicious breakfast that not only makes you feel you're lounging on a beach with your toes buried in the warm sand and the sun kissing your skin, but also includes an array of amazing benefits? Yes? (How could you say no?) We have the perfect smoothie recipe for you! This tropical sea moss smoothie recipe is packed with minerals and plant-based ingredients, 200 mg of organic Irish sea moss, and is a definite must-try!  

Now, you might be wondering why you would even need a recipe for something as simple as a smoothie? After all, you are just putting a bunch of ingredients into a blender and whipping it all together. I get where you’re coming from, but sometimes we get in the habit of making the same boring smoothie everyday, and just need a little inspiration to spice up our morning blends! As always, you can swap ingredients in and out as you please, but we think this summer inspired smoothie is amazing as it is!

But First, What Is Irish Sea Moss?

To be completely transparent with you, despite its name, sea moss isn't your typical seaweed – it's actually a type of algae. In fact, there are over 10,000 species of seaweed, all stemming from red seaweed, also known as rhodophytes. Rhodophytes are among the largest species of seaweed, constituting one of the three major groups of algae, alongside brown algae (phaeophyceae) and green algae (chlorophyta).

But what you really want to know is what is Irish sea moss? Irish sea moss specifically is actually called chondrus crispus. It grows in cooler waters, mainly near Great Britain, the coast of Ireland, Maine, Canada, and other places that have cooler waters, and is popular for its mineral and micronutrients benefits. We could talk about how amazing this sea vegetable is all day, but we have a recipe to share! If you want to learn more about the benefits of Irish sea moss, check out our blog 'Irish Sea Moss 101'

Now The Real Reason You Came Here … The Recipe

If you’re looking for  a fun and refreshing way to start your day, whip up this tropical-inspired smoothie! The base of the smoothie is created with avocado, which adds the most amazing, creamy texture, some spinach, and some mango which helps give it that fresh, tropical taste we’re aiming for. Then we add in some spirulina and flax meal for a pop of color and nutrition, along with the smooth richness of vanilla protein powder. If you’re looking to get some beauty-boosting benefits that benefit your hair, skin, and nails, you can substitute the vanilla protein powder for our Vanilla Beauty vegan collagen support. We would add-in one scoop or one stick pack to help bring in the sweet vanilla flavor and to aid in the creamy texture of the smoothie. To finish off the smoothie, add in a splash of coconut water, some ice cubes to thicken up the mixture, and one stick-pack of our Citrus Blossom Sea Moss Refresher. Adding in our refresher really gives you that zesty, tangy taste that a tropical smoothie like this needs! We love making this smoothie in the mornings not only for its amazing taste, but because it's so quick and easy to make! Simply toss all the ingredients into your blender, hit blend, and wait for paradise to hit your taste buds!

Citrus Blossom Sea Moss Refresher Drink Blend

That's literally all! This drink is super simple and even more refreshing. Our Citrus Blossom Refresher fits perfectly in the summer themed smoothie with its sweet orange and lemon flavor, and its slight hint of coconut. The coconut water found in our refresher blend and in the smoothie itself give it major hydrating benefits and tie everything in perfectly. Both our Citrus Blossom Sea Moss Refresher and Passionfruit Sea Moss Refresher come in powder form (goodbye sea moss gel) which allows them to blend effortlessly into smoothies and drinks without the fishy taste and slimy texture. 

This smoothie is great if you’re looking to fill up on antioxidants, protein, and get the benefits of sea moss! ​​Not to mention it is delicious and tastes like summer in a drink form!
