Irish Moss Peanut Punch!
This recipe is inspired from Peanut Punch from Jamaica. We blend up fresh Irish Moss gel with Peanut, Almond Milk, Bananas, Honey, & Spices. A rich, creamy, and decadent fortifying smoothie!
I really love this recipe. The secret lies in the Irish Moss which is a totally medicinal Seaweed found along the Atlantic. Irish Moss is packed with vitamins, nutrients, and trace minerals, soothes mucous membranes in the lungs & digestive tract, has anti-viral & anti-bacterial properties, restores libido and more. It is a wonderful natural remedy found right along the coast here in Maine. In fact, the Moss in this recipe was harvested by us on a recent trip to one of Maine’s heavenly beaches.
To obtain the Moss Gel used as the backbone of this recipe, simply soak a handful of Irish Moss overnight, strain water in morning, cover with water in pot and boil for 30-40 minutes. Discard Irish Moss solids and let liquid cool in your fridge. Viola!
