View Full Version : How to ingest dried kelp/bladderwrack..?

I recently purchased an ounce of dried bladderwrack with the intent of adding it to foods (to help my metabolism). Unfortunately, I can't stomach it. Any ideas of how to ingest it without tasting it?
Thankfully, there's a very easy solution to this - just soak it for 10minutes in a bowl of warm water, then add it to your blended smoothies. Provided you don't add more than a heaped teaspoon to each blended drink, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised at how palatable it is this way. Although I'm able to eat seaweed as it is, I regularly add it to my green smoothies because it's just easier to add it and not even have to think of it's texture or taste.
Try it and let me know how you get on. I should point out, though, that you need a powerful blender to effectively blend seaweed. If you have a cheap blender, it probably won't successfully pulverise the seaweed completely, leaving bits floating in your smoothie which will obviously not be as palatable. You can assist your blender by first chopping the seaweed into small pieces, using a pair of scissors.
