You may remember Dr. Sebi giving credit to something called ‘sea moss’ for helping him to father 17 children. Sea moss is packed with so many nutrients that benefit male health particularly, that some Brothers have thrown away their Viagra!
Whether you have issues in that area or not, sea moss should be on everyone’s menu – Women and Men alike. Thats because sea moss is a good source of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that include:
✓ dietary fiber
✓ Vitamin K
✓ and Manganese.
And since sea moss is an algae, it is appropriate for all plant based diets, including the Melanin Diet.
The problem with sea moss is that on its own, it is not very appetizing. In fact, the taste and texture is a big turn-off. The good news is that there are some delicious recipes out there that will have you craving sea moss every day of the week.
I have personally collected dozens of sea moss recipes, tried many of them, and included the 6 best ones below. Before you check out the recipes, you will need to have some essentials on hand and ready to go. Here are the tools and ingredients that I suggest.
Everything You Need To Get Started
Almost every one of the recipes below require the following tools and ingredients.
Dr.Sebi Approved Sea Moss
Not all sea moss is the same. Mass produced farm raised trash wont work, so make sure you are buying the real deal. Here are three suppliers with quality product.
Dr.Sebi Approved Sweeteners
Most of the sea moss recipes below call for a sweetener. There are only two sweeteners that Alkaline dieters are advised to consume by Dr. Sebi. They are Pure Agave Syrup and Date Sugar. Here are the two brands that I have in my kitchen and used in the recipes below.
A Non Dairy Milk
You can find coconut and almond milk at your grocery store, but recently I have started using hemp and macadamia milk. Try it and see if it works for you. Anything works better than bovine, casein cancer causing white milk!
If you dont have a blender, you might as well close this article. Get yourself a blender if you are serious about living a Black Conscious lifestyle or eating an Alkaline diet! They are cheap, and you will use it every day.
Now that you are geared up, here are the recipes that will put lead back in your pencil.
How To Prepare Sea Moss
Before you get started with the sea moss recipes below, you need to convert the raw moss from its solid form into a gel or paste. Here is how to prepare your sea moss according to the instructions in our original article here.
Step 1: Remove your sea moss from the bag and wash it thoroughly.
Step 2: Put it into a large bowl filled with cool water. It doesn’t look like a lot but this stuff really expands so make sure to use a large bowl filled with water.
Step 3: Cover and leave overnight to rehydrate. Once the sea moss has absorbed the water in the bowl, it will look something like this…
Step 4: Put your sea moss into a blender along with 1 cup of activated water for every ounce of sea moss
Step 5: You now have a sea moss jelly that you can put in a mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or use immediately.

6 cups warm water (to soak the moss)
2 tbsp of linseed (click here to buy)
1 cup nut milk (can use coconut milk)
Coconut condensed milk (optional to taste)
1/4 cup of coconut nectar (buy it here)
1/8 tsp Nutmeg

- Place the sea moss and flaxseed in a large size bowl with the 6 cups of warm water and leave to soak overnight. The moss will expand in size and the water should thicken slightly
- Use a colander to pour and drain off the excess water that was used to soak the sea moss
