Delicious Turmeric Fudge
Turmeric is an amazing herb with anti-inflammatory properites. The important thing to note is that it needs to be paired with the right carriers so it is easily absorbed by the digestive system. The two molecules that aid this process are fat and black pepper (piperine). This recipe brings these three ingredients together along with chocolate and coconut oil to create a delicious fudge. The turmeric flavour will remain in a very subtle way but what will come through most is the rich chocolate creaminess. I highly recommend this as a treat and a great way to get some turmeric into your diet.
1 cup dark chocolate (100g bar)
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup turmeric
black pepper 1/4 tsp
cinnamon 1 tsp
pinch cayenne optional
note: can add or substitute powder- ashwagandha, maca
can give or take turmeric to desired taste and consistency
In a sauce pan melt chocolate and coconut oil. Once melted, add your powders - turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper. Once mixed together and smooth. Place in a freezer safe glass container lined with parchement paper - pour evenly into container and allow to cool on the counter and then to harden in freezer. Cut into cubes or desired size/shape. Store in freezer or fridge to make them last ;)
