No Bake Turmeric Boost Balls

No Bake Turmeric Boost Balls | Growing Up Herbal | My kids LOVE these easy to make herbal cookies that require NO baking!

I love experimenting with food and herbs, learning how to combine the two, and make it taste great without killing the properties of the herbs… not to mention making deliciously healthy foods my kids will eat. It can certainly be a challenge, but I’m definitely up for it from time to time!

My most recent recipe experiment came after trying Gaia Herbs function powders, TurmericBoost: Restore and TurmericBoost: Uplift as a part of their #LiveLifeBrighter promotion. (And, before it’s over, enter on the Gaia Herbs Facebook page for your chance to win an amazing prize pack before the contest ends this Friday!) I love the flavor of TurmericBoost so it’s really easy for me to add it to smoothies or milk. It has a spicy vanilla taste and warms you up all over. Just writing about it makes me want some!

Anyway, there are times that I’m not really in the mood for a drink so I wanted to find another way of using it… that and the fact that my kids can be picky about spicy tasting foods so I needed some other options that we’d all love!

After brainstorming and trying a few recipes out, I finally settled on one that is super quick to throw together, requires no heat, and tastes great. Plus, it works well for different diets as you can substitute ingredients easily.

Today I wanna share my recipe for No Bake TurmericBoost Balls with you. Having healthy sweet treats on hand (or ones that can easily be made) is always a good idea, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Not only will it help to curb those junk food cravings, but it will keep you from devouring a whole package of Oreos because you want something sweet! (Not that I’d know what that’s like of course! ;P)

    This looks really good can’t wait to try, I have nut allergies so I have to find a substitute for that.

    • Meagan says:

      Oh bummer Jasmine. I’m sure there’s a replacement you could use. I hope you can try them and they turn out delicious. We’ve made several batches, and my kids devour them!!

  2. Angela says:

    Is there a substitute for the TurmericBoost if I don’t have any?

    • Meagan says:

      No, I’m sorry Angela… there isn’t that I know of. The TurmericBoost is a blend of herbs and spices that gives the balls their flavor (it has a vanilla prebiotic blend in with the turmeric and other herbs), and I’m not sure I’d know what to put in place of that. So sorry!!

    • Rachel says:

      The site says that it is Turmeric, Vanilla and Chia Spices. I think I might try the recipe with those as a replacement.

  3. Ella says:

    These look great! I was wondering many calories much per cookie?

    • Meagan says:

      Honestly Ella… I have no idea. I don’t count calories so I didn’t even think to check on it, but I’m sure there’s an app for that. You could probably search Google for it too. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

  4. Adrian says:

    Can ground Tumeric be used instead of the Boost and Uplift formulations?

    • Meagan says:

      I’m sure it can Adrian, but I can’t be sure the taste will be the same. The Boost and Uplift have other things in them to make them taste great, and without those ingredients, the flavor of the Boost Balls may change. Hope this helps!

    Hi Meagan!

    I love this idea! I’m excited to try them! I have a random question to ask you because I read that you are an RN. I am a new teacher and I have realized that it’s not for me, so I am looking at going to school to become and RN through the accelerated program. Could you email me with any advice you may have for me? My friends are young nurses and have great advice, but I would like to hear from someone who may have a little more experience. Thank you 🙂

    • Meagan says:

      Hey, Sara! I wish you luck in your nursing studies. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I have a ton of advice to share with you as I haven’t worked as a nurse in years. I went on maternity leave after having my first baby and never looked back! I really enjoyed nursing school though. It’s a great field! Best of luck!!
