1 cup dried Sea Moss
2 cinnamon sticks
Soak the dried Sea Moss in cold water for 15 minutes. Wash moss thoroughly, but do not soak it overnight, as the algae will lose too much of its potency. Fill a pot with two quarts of fresh water. Add the clean Sea Moss and two cinnamon sticks. Bring pot to boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce to low for 20-25 minutes. The algae will soften and the water will thicken. Remove from heat and discard cinnamon sticks. Allow the solution to cool and place it in the refrigerator overnight, allowing it to gel.
1 cup Sea Moss gel
2 cups of water (depending on thickness desired)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 small can sweetened condensed milk (7 oz)
Pinch of nutmeg for flavor
Sugar to taste
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix on low speed until pieces of algae are liquefied. Serve cold or over ice. You may also add a shot of rum.
