Anti-inflammatory Turmeric Coconut Balls | Vegan, Gluten-free, (Refined) Sugar-free, Paleo| Ayurveda


Can't we all use an extra anti-inflammatory boost around this time of year? How about benefiting from those healing effects while snacking on some sweet and spicy coconut treats that are ready to munch on in less than10 minutes? I have got you covered here!

The combination of turmeric, black pepper, honey and fatty acids in this recipe is awesome! Turmeric actually has an insane amount of health benefits and is a great anti-inflammatory spice as well as an antioxidant, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial and the list goes on for a while.  Which is why it is a spice that is often used in the Ayurveda tradition. The natural healing qualities of the turmeric are enhanced by the other ingredients in this recipe making it easier for your body to absorb and make full use of all the right nutrients.

The combination of turmeric, black pepper has actually been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat as well as prevent inflammatory disorders.

Ingredients*:

- 90 grams of shredded coconut.

- 1/2 tbsp of ghee (you can replace this with coconut oil for a vegan option).

- 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil.

- 1 teaspoon of turmeric.

- 1 tbsp of (raw) honey (you can add more or less according to your taste). If you don't eat honey, substitute with any liquid sweetner.

- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper.

- 6 whole cardamom pods.

- 3 whole cloves.

(Dutch measurements translation:) *1 tbsp = 2 eetlepels     1/2 tbsp = 1 eetlepel

    1 teaspoon = 1 theelepel

    1/2 teaspoon = halve theelepel

Portion size: 

You can make about 10 small balls from this recipe. Double or cut the ingredients in half according to your desired portion.


Directions: 

I love nutrition packed and flavorful food as much as I love to keep thing as simple and quick as possible. For this recipe, all you need is a blender or food processor.

1. Throw all the ingredients above in a blender or food processor and blend it away. Until you get a thick chunky consistency. 2. Now you can roll the balls with your hands and store them away in the fridge for a couple of hours.


Yes, that really is all ;)


Enjoy!
