Gut Healing Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tea

Gut Healing Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tea

This recipe for my Gut Healing Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tea is my go-to when my digestion is just feeling off.

This spicy tea features gut healing superstar turmeric powder, and adds an extra health kick from the gelatin.

Turmeric contains its bio-active ingredient, curcumin, which can take all the credit for its health promoting properties.

Curcumin is anti-inflammatory, and I find that it does a great job at soothing an irritated digestive system.

Adding a pinch of black pepper to the tea will make the curcumin easier for your body to absorb, but since I want to keep all of its benefits in my gut (and not absorbed elsewhere), I tend not to use black pepper most of the time.

Also, just to give you an insider tip: I've tried a few different brands of gelatin, and I just keep coming back to Vital Proteins, it works the best for me!

It doesn't leave any gelatin chunks in my tea, and doesn't get super gel-like even when the tea is at a drinkable temperature. All good qualities in my book!

And just as a heads up, this tea is spicy! So, feel free to play around with the turmeric to honey ratio until you find one that tastes best to you.

But, here's the recipe - I hope you enjoy it!

Gut Healing Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tea


  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp Non-Dairy Milk (I use almond milk)

  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger

  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon

  • 1 tsp Honey

  • 1 scoop Gelatin


  1. In a small bowl, combine 1 tbsp milk and the gelatin, and mix until the gelatin has thickened.

  2. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and honey over low heat, stirring occasionally until hot.

  3. Remove saucepan from heat, and add in thickened gelatin mixture,

  4. Mix until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

  5. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy! (The cooler the tea gets, the thicker it will be due to the gelatin, so consume accordingly)
