At the former Sprouts Cafe' in Atlanta, GA, run by Gideon and Jackie Graff, they used to sell a drink called Irish Moss. It was a thick satisfying chocolate beverage packed with nutrition. This drink was made with Irish moss combined with macadamia nuts, banana, agave nectar, carob and spirulina! It was a great drink. It may still be available through some local Atlanta health food stores.
