Flu Busting Citrus and Turmeric Gummies

These are the most gorgeous tasting little powerhouses that certainly pack a punch – you can alter the levels of ginger and turmeric to your tastes accordingly but be aware that the gummies will lose their superpowers.

Having said that though my two-year-old Anya totally gobbled these up whilst making quite a few faces saying “Too spicy.”! So if my two-year-old can handles these so can you.

Gelatin is a brilliant source of amino acids that aid in joint health, muscle synthesis and even at boosting your mood. Using grass-fed gelatin is an absolute must as you need to avoid any pesticide or heavy metal contamination. 

You’ll also be pleased to know that grass-fed gelatin will do your skin a whole host of good – the two amino acids proline and glycine boost the production of collagen which will help to ‘smoothe out’ your skin. Gelatin can also help to protect your skin from the sun too.

The turmeric acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory – turmeric contains the powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory known as ‘curcumin’. Curcumin can be used to help combat depression, Alzheimer's, and even arthritis.

Although the levels of curcumin are fairly low in turmeric it is still beneficial to consume but it’s important to add in something like black pepper or root ginger in order to aid in the absorption of curcumin into the bloodstream. 

That’s not the only reason I added in root ginger though – root ginger has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant purposes.Flu Busting Citrus and Turmeric Gummies Prep time2 hours 10 minsCook time15 minsTotal time2 hours 25 mins Heal your gut and reap the anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant benefits of these Flu Busting Citrus and Turmeric Gummies. Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup grass-fed gelatin
  • ½ cup of warm water
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4-5" root ginger (juiced)
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp licorice powder
  • Pinch fine Himalayan pink salt (if coarse grind)
  • ¼ cup raw honey


  1. Start by placing ½ cup of warm water in a bowl along with your gelatin to create your gelatin ‘bloom’. Leave to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Using a juicer juice your orange, lemon, lime, and root ginger. If you don't own a juicer then juice the fruits by hand and finely grate the root ginger.
  3. In a small saucepan add your remaining ½ cup warm water, turmeric, licorice powder, and Himalayan pink salt. If you haven't got a juicer and grated your root ginger be sure to add that in now. Bring the mixture to the boil and reduce to the lowest heat.
  4. If using grated root ginger make sure that you strain out the liquid before this step to remove the ginger. Stir/whisk in your gelatin bloom until it becomes thin and the ingredients have fully combined. This will take about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in your fruit and ginger juice (if using a juicer). Next, stir in your raw honey until fully dissolved.
  6. Pour into your silicone molds and place into the fridge. Leave to set for 1-2 hours until firm!
  7. Remove the gummies and store in an airtight container within the fridge.

 Notes* Prep time includes a 1-2 hour setting time, the prep itself is just 10 mins.
** Please note that all cup measurements used are British cups and equal to 250ml.
*** This recipe will require a chocolate mold (or two in this case) and small silicone chocolate pouring a jug.
