Turmeric Gummies

Are you feeling that familiar twinge of a cold or the flu coming on? Quick—whip up a batch of these easy cold and flu fighting turmeric gummies!

If you’ve never made your own gummies before, it’s actually easier than you might think. You may remember our DIY vitamin C gummies recipe, which is great, but these DIY turmeric gummies are especially wonderful for helping your body fight cold, flu and even inflammation.

Make Your Own Turmeric Gummies

So, why turmeric? Well, if you’ve been reading along lately you may have noticed that I’m really loving this natural remedy right now. You can read more about the benefits of turmeric in my turmeric golden paste and turmeric golden milk posts. I highly recommend trying both of those recipes in addition to these turmeric gummies.

In fact, if you make up a little batch of my turmeric golden paste ahead of time you can use it in the recipe below!

Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is really an incredible home remedy for a whole host of ailments. It actually seems to work better than many fancy pharmaceuticals in its effectiveness against debilitating diseases like arthritis and even some cancers.

Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties that have been used for centuries to fight common ailments such as colds, flu, sore throat and cough.

And that’s exactly why I first wanted to make a batch of these turmeric gummies. As a busy mother, I don’t have time to get sick. Who does, right?

While you can taste a hint of turmeric in these gummies the carrot and orange juice flavors really mellow it out quite a bit. I actually really love how these taste, and they’re even more enjoyable to eat because I know how good they are for my body.

I’m loving how simple it is to make my own natural gummies at home with ingredients that are good for my body. In addition to turmeric, these gummies utilize (which are another great antioxidant) and orange juice.

Of course, we’re all really familiar with the power of vitamin C against colds and flu!

Since turmeric is such a great known anti-inflammatory ingredient I also love taking these gummies to help ease my joint pain. I’ve found as I get older that my wrists, knees and ankles tend to ache, especially in the evenings and most notably during stormy weather.

I can’t be the only one who can feel a storm coming in their joints, right?

Turmeric is also good for treating the pain and pressure of sinus infections, once again, because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties. It’s even one of the home remedies that I mention in my 7 best home remedies for sinus infection post. This is a comprehensive guide to battling sinus infections at home—don’t miss it.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or you just want to give your immune system a little boost, I highly recommend making some of these turmeric gummies. For a little extra-healing in the way of a nutritious and healthy dinner idea, don’t miss my easy vegan chili recipe. It’s so yummy!

Cold and Flu Fighting Turmeric Gummies

Blast cold, flu and inflammation with these easy-to-make DIY turmeric gummies!


  • ½ cup steamed carrots
  • 1 cup natural orange juice
  • ½ cup really hot water
  • ¼ cup quality natural gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons golden paste 
  • You'll also need to have silicone molds or a coconut oil greased glass dish for pouring your mixture into.


  1. Combine the orange juice, carrots and golden paste together until smooth in the blender.
  2. Pour into a small saucepan and quickly whisk the ¼ cup gelatin and a ¼ cup of the orange juice mixture. Follow with the hot water, again whisking quickly. As soon as that is dissolved add the remaining orange juice mixture and whisk until combined.
  3. Continue whisking in the saucepan over low heat until the mixture is very smooth. Just a moment or two.  It is not absolutely necessary to do this step, but I do find it helps to give the gummies a smoother texture.
  4. Pour the liquid into your silicone molds or coconut oil greased glass dish.  Set the tray in the refrigerator, they should set in about 1 hour.  Store in an airtight container. These will keep in the refrigerator for up to to 1 week, or you can freeze them.

  1. Doesn’t turmeric have to be mixed with black pepper to reap the full benefits?

    • Yes it does 

    • I just found a recipe that used 4 peppercorns while cooking and then removed them before molding. I wonder if that is enough? I did like the idea as opposed to seeing black dots in my gummy. My issue with this and other recipes is the amount of turmeric being used. Doesn’t seem to be enough when daily dosage states 1/2 a tsp a DAY.

    • There’s black pepper in the golden paste.

    • Yes, and this recipe calls for her turmeric “golden paste” which is made with black pepper and other spices. Recipe is linked on this page. 

  2. Has anyone ever answered questions? 1- How many is a serving size? 2- How many times a day? 3- Before or after a meal? 4- As a snack? 5- How/where to find the mold?

  3. How many servings is this supposed to make and what should a serving consist of? Thanking you for your knowledge and response. Blessings

  4. I have made these a total of three times now! I actually just made a new batch today! The second time I modified the recipe by adding a 1/2 cup more of orange juice, but this time I went with a 1/2 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar instead of the orange juice.  I mixed it in after making sure everything was combined. I find that even with the additional 1/2 cup of liquid, the gummies are still nice and firm. This recipe is great, because it is a great way to get the properties of turmeric in a delicious, healthy, easy-to-eat gummy! 

    • Hi Faith! I’m wondering if you added more liquid to get the texture you wanted?? I’ve tried to make this recipe 2 times now and it’s been coming out with a thicker, paste like texture and doesn’t set in the fridge. As an avid baker and cook, I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Please help! 

  5. Where did you find your mold?

  6. Hello Crissy, this sounds really great and I would love to make. However, I have 2 questions. I read thru the comments below hoping to get them but there were the same with no response reflected. 1. What is the serving? 1 or 2 in the morning. 2 times a day. 2. What size mold did you use? Best place to purchase.

  7. Do you have a vegan substitute for the gelatin, 
    Thanks!   Great recipes!!

  8. Look yummy

  9. I’m allergic to oranges, do you think this would work with grapefruit, lemon or lime juice instead?

  20. How cool are these?! I’m going to whip up a bunch tomorrow because the stomach flu has been making its rounds in my neck of the woods…

  21. What would a correct serving size be for the gummies – I want to order a silicone tray and want to get the right thing. Thank you!

  22. do you eat one every morning, like popping a vitamin? or, is it like a snack after dinner, that you can nibble on 3 or 4 while watching tv?
