Glass of smoothie next to jar of Irish moss with rolled oats pile in front of glass

This protein smoothie was so delicious and easy to make. It left me full for hours and is packed with 21 grams of protein and great ingredients like pure cacao powder, rolled oats and the star of the show, Irish moss.

Irish moss is actually a type of seaweed. Like other seaweeds it is very high in iodine. Iodine is something many vegans and vegetarians are deficient in so it is important to supplement it.

Sea Moss Health Benefits

Studies have also shown that sea moss can help reduce fatigue and soreness after workouts which makes it a perfect post workout ingredient. Sea moss is also good for supporting immune health, gut health and healthy hair, skin and nails.

You can also add sea moss to almost anything, smoothies are just a really easy and delicious way to incorporate them into your diet.

This smoothie was super quick and easy to make. I started with ¼ cup rolled oats and pulsed those in the blender to break them up before adding the other ingredients.

You can then add all the other ingredients in no particular order, which is one cup oat milk, 3 tablespoons almond butter, 1 banana, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds, 1 tablespoon agave, a pinch of ground cinnamon, about a handful of ice and ½ teaspoon of Irish sea moss.
