Tumeric Gummies

A patient asked me this week for a healthy alternative to jelly. I suggested she try 'gummies' made with gut healing gelatin. This recipe is based on the 'I quit sugar' program.


  • 3 1/2 tablespoons gelatin

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 cup cashew butter

  • 2 teaspoons turmeric, ground

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

  • 1 teaspoon maca powder

  • 1/4 cup rice malt syrup.

  • 1 pinch sea salt


1. Dissolve the gelatin in 1/3 cup of cold water and let it sit for 5 minutes until it has become gel-like.

2. Heat the almond milk, cashew butter, turmeric, cinnamon, vanilla, maca, rice malt syrup and sea salt in a saucepan until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and stir in the gelatin until it has dissolved.

3. Pour into a 10x15cm glass or plastic container. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut into squares.

4. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
