Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory component, curcumin, has been widely studied for its holistic healing effects – and with over 7,000 studies done, so far, this is a must-have addition to your health regimen.

Previously, we’ve shared a delicious recipe for a “Turmeric Hot Toddy“, and the recipe below is another fantastic way to incorporate this supplement into your daily routine.

Two variations for Turmeric Bombs

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with the unbleached parchment paper. Make room in your freezer to put the cookie sheet for a few hours when the Turmeric Bombs need to set.
  2. If you are like me and have a tendency to spill things, wear an apron! Turmeric powder stains clothing, and the powder can get on your clothes if you stir the mixture too vigorously.
  3. Select one of the binding agents. You will need approximately 3 tablespoons. If you choose raw honey and it is thick, melt it in a saucepan over very low heat until it is pourable. Do the same with the coconut oil or ghee so it is liquid, but not hot.
  4. In a bowl, stir together the turmeric, quercetin, pepper, and binding agent. If using honey, you should have a thick and pliable mixture. If using oil, you should have a thick mixture with which you can form pills.
  5. For the honey variation, pinch of small amounts of the “dough,” roll between your palms, and place on the baking sheet. For the oil variation, use a spoon to scoop small pill shapes onto the baking sheet.
  6. Freeze until firm, then transfer to a storage container and keep in the freezer.
  7. Take the turmeric bombs as needed. You can’t overdose on them. However, if you take a lot of the oil-based ones, the fat content may upset your stomach. It using the honey version, keep in mind that it does contain sugar (albeit unrefined and enzyme-rich sugar).
