Turmeric Gummies

February 6, 2018 No Comments

Did you know turmeric has all kinds of benefits?!  It is a natural anti-inflammatory herb that can help will all of the following:

  • Reduce joint pain
  • Prevent next day muscle soreness following a workout
  • Increases the antioxidant power of the body
  • Increases brain function
  • Could lower your chances of heart disease
  • Helps combat chronic illnesses

I suffer from a connective tissue disorder so I experience a lot of joint and muscles pain.  I have found taking turmeric every day helps with those symptoms.  It is a safer option to anti-inflammatories.

Now that you know about the benefits lets get down to how you make it!

Ingredients

  • Coconut oil (aids in the digestion of the turmeric) 1 tbsp
  • Unflavored Gelatin 4 packets (4 tbsp)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tbsp of tumeric
  • Honey (as needed)

Instructions

  1. Bring the water to a boil and in the turmeric, coconut, and honey.  I personally don’t use any honey but I also enjoy the taste of turmeric.  If you need to sweeten it, start with a tablespoon at a time.  The turmeric can be adjusted, as well.  I like mine stronger so I use a whole tablespoon but you can use as little as 1/2 tablespoon.
  2. Whisk in the gelatin.  Make sure you continue to do this until the gelatin is dissolved otherwise it will get clumpy.
  3. Remove from stove and pour into a mold.  I used a petite cupcake pan and have also used a square foil pan and just cut them into squares.  The foil pan is definitely the easiest!
  4. Let the cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until firm.
  5. Pop out or cut and store in a air tight container.
**FYI- turmeric stains everything it touches so be careful and don’t touch it will your hands.  Additional gelatin can be added if you like a hard chewier gummy.  Enjoy!!
