What is Sea moss? Sea moss is a variety of Seaweed called Eucheuma Isiforme that's commercially harvested and used as a thickening agent in cosmetics, baked goods, soups, stews, and drinks. In the Caribbean, it is most often found in a milky shake and is said to be a natural supplement for stimulating the Libido.

So if you have ever wanted to try making a sea moss drink, we have put together an excellent plant-based recipe that everyone can enjoy.
