Turmeric Tummy Bark

turmeric tummy bark

I must admit that sometimes, I like to let my inner-Nigella free and venture into the kitchen for some secret midnight snacking!

This is an activity that is totally okay by me... just not something that should happen every single night -  especially when it often involves sugar-laden treats that can often leave your tummy feeling uncomfortable, your blood sugar levels sky high and your brain over wired.

So, what to do? Go for the celery stick instead? This moment is one that many people are often plagued with and a time when you might start to question all of the food decisions you’ve ever made up until this point. 

I know I’m not the only one who partakes in such activities and so, I thought I'd make myself useful and create something that is okay for an anytime treat. This is a recipe that you can keep in your freezer when hunger cravings strike. It's my favourite gut loving and satiating Turmeric Tummy Bark.   These fine chunks of goodness will satisfy your sweet cravings, keep you feeling happy and leave your tummy feeling fine. 

This delicious bark is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, refined-sugar free, nutritious and super scrumptious. I've made sure that it's packed with all the good stuff; turmeric, slivered almonds and my insta-famous Love Your Gut powder. Just one bite will leave you feeling better, rather than worse after you’ve eaten it, and that to me is a treat worth waiting for.

Turmeric can play a huge role in treating gastrointestinal problems, such as IBS and inflammation related symptoms.  It has anti-inflammatory properties and can even boost your immune system. Turmeric can also be beneficial in weight-loss and can activate fat-burning genes too.

If you'd like to create more turmeric-filled snacks, or already have my Love Your Gut powder then why not check out my One-Bowl Turmeric Fudge Masterpiece or my Turmeric Tummy Gummies?  Also did you know that using bio-active turmeric means no pinch of pepper required? More about that on a later post...

Turmeric, in combination with my Love Your Gut Powder, is key to a midnight-friendly treat that is kind to your gut, as well as your tastebuds.

And without further ado, the Turmeric Tummy Bark!

    Hello, how do you stop the tumeric from styling at the bottom? I just attempted it, but it doesn’t look like the picture lol Do you melt the cocoa butter and oil together first?

    Hi Lee,
    Finally got around to making this today, as I had to have enough time to make the cocunut butter as well.
    I made it in my Thermomix and don’t know whether I mixed it too much but the coconut oil separated from the solid mass of the remainder of the combined ingredients.
    I poured the liquid out, stuck it in the fridge until it solidified and tried to then incorporate it (by hand) with the mixture but it was very difficult.
    I ended up trying to squish it down and roll it out between two pieces of baking paper but there was still a lot of liquid that wasn’t incorporated.
    Having said that, I stuck it in the freezer, broke it up and tried it.
    It was very yummy but the ‘frozen’ coconut oil substance that wasn’t incorporated wasn’t very pleasant. : (
    Any tips on how to im prove this would be very much appreciated! : )

    Do fingers turn yellow from the turmeric when you eat the bark?

    • lee says:

      Not if you eat it quickly but you could get a bit of staining if you hold onto it for long. Then use lemon juice to get it off 🙂

    I have made this a few times minus the nuts and it is so delicious! Coconut butter is one of my favourites. Thank you.
