Here is what you will need to make Sea Moss Vegan No-Sugar Recipe:

  • 1 cup of Irish moss
  • 2 cups of spring water
  • 4 cups of unsweetened soymilk or non-dairy milk of your choice such as almond milk or coconut milk

Why these ingredients?

For our gel base, we’ll be using spring water, which is a heavy metal-free source of many nutrients.

Our recipe calls for unsweetened soymilk or another type of nondairy milk. Not only do these options provide a vegan and gluten-free source of nutrition, but they also work great for making the creamy consistency we are looking for in this recipe.

Finally, our spices, featuring nutmeg and cinnamon, add a sweet yet not overpowering flavor to our recipe without adding sugar. Who doesn’t love some spices added to their drinks?

Now let’s get to the juiciest part of this article – how to make our delicious Sea Moss recipe. Before we proceed, I want to remind you that using Irish moss in your diet provides multiple health benefits, including improved digestion, strengthening immune system, reducing inflammation and high blood pressure, and supporting skin health.


  • 1 cup washed Irish moss
  • 4 cups of spring water
  • non-dairy milk of your choice (we suggest using unsweetened soymilk or almond milk)
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • a pinch of cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, clean and soak 1 cup of Irish moss in cold water overnight until it softens and increases in size.
  2. The next day, pour off the water and rinse the moss thoroughly.
  3. In a pot, bring 4 cups of spring water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the soaked Irish moss to the boiling water, reduce heat to low-medium and let cook for around 25-30 minutes or until it becomes soft and translucent.
  5. Remove the pot from heat, let it cool down for a while and then blend with a regular blender or immersion blender until smooth.
  6. For every cup of blended sea moss gel, add 1-2 cups of non-dairy milk – depending on how thick you like your sea moss drink.
  7. Add a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.
  8. Blend again on high speed until everything is well combined.

Cook’s Note

We recommend adding spices before blending so that they are evenly distributed throughout the moss drink. Adjust the spices to your preference; some people love more nutmeg than cinnamon or vice versa.

This recipe yields around 500 ml (16 oz) of Irish Moss Sea Moss Gel. You can store any leftover moss gel in an airtight container in your fridge for up to two weeks.
