Turmeric Bombs

Turmeric Bombs

Turmeric is a super spice, it has anti inflammatory and here is a great way to add turmeric into your daily diet, these DIY turmeric supplements contain black pepper and quercetin – two ingredients shown to improve the bioavailability of the curcumin that is found in turmeric. Here are two variations for turmeric bombs: one made with honey and one made with coconut oil or ghee. Turmeric Bombs for Inflammation 1 Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup organic ground turmeric
  • About 1 Tbs.  quercetin powder (about 10 capsules, emptied),
  • Big pinch of finely ground black pepper

Choose ONE of the following (you will need about 3 Tbs.)

  • Raw honey
  • Coconut oil,
  • Grass fed  ghee,
  • Unbleached parchment paper,

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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Freeze until firm, then transfer to a storage container and keep in the freezer.
