Turmeric Coconut Cream Cups




Yield 12 Cream Cups


Optional: Can also use 2 tablespoons of raw, local honey or keto maple syrup or 1 tbsp. of xylitol if you don’t want to use stevia.  Honey does contain sugar however, so the recipe would not be ketogenic if you used this.


Step #1:  In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the turmeric and pepper and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Step #2:  Place the shredded coconut, coconut butter, coconut oil, lemon juice, and stevia in a food processor and process until well blended.

Step #3:  Using a spoon, place about 2 tablespoons of the coconut mixture into each well of a silicone or metal mini-muffin pan.

Step #4:  Pour equal portions of the turmeric butter over the coconut mixture in each well until the coconut is completely covered.

Step #5:  Freeze for about 20 minutes, or until the coconut mixture is frozen.

Step #6:  Serve or store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Dr Jockers Comments  

I am always looking for ways to get more turmeric and more coconut fats into my system.  This may be my all-time favorite way!

This is a ketogenic recipe in that it is extremely low-carb, is full of healthy fats and has tons of antioxidants and coconut fibers which are a natural prebiotic.  The good fats and fibers will provide satiety to where you will not have sugar cravings and they will reduce inflammation and improve digestive function.

Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant rich herbs known to man.  Its primary component curcumin is known to improve brain function and protect the body from a myriad of chronic diseases.

Mixing it with good fats such as coconut or grass-fed butter in this recipe as well as black pepper (which contains a curcumin activator called peperine) helps to maximize the overall utilization of the curcuminoids.

You will notice that your skin will feel softer and you will have incredible energy, less bodily pain and improved mental clarity after consuming these on a regular basis.  Enjoy!

  1. I do not know who did your camera work but you need to redo this video the movement made me sick and I could not watch this, however, this was the best idea I have heard of for getting both turmeric and healthy fats all in one… thanks

    1. Haha, sorry you had that issue! We were going for a live moving camera look. But we have gotten mixed feedback so we will probably go back to standard filming next time we do a shoot! Thanks for the feedback!!

    2. I agree Barb, didn’t make me sick, but yuck, it wasn’t enjoyable to watch. I can’t wait to try this recipe. All the recipes so far have been pretty good, yet a lot of data is missing in the directions, such as a whole ingredient, but I kind of just add it where I think it might go.

      Just adding all this coconut (whole fat) milk into my diet has really made a difference in my skin and hair. Love it. Thanks Dr Jockers for all these great recipes, even my husband is liking them. Yeah.

  2. My autistic granddaughter is allergic to milk products, even ghee bothers her. Do you have any suggestions on what I can use instead of butter. Thank you

  3. Hi David, thank you for this yummy recipe. I made it and had one today! It was super delicious! It will be my daily snack!

  4. I am getting ready to make this recipe. It looks like the perfect solution to what I’ve been looking for. Thank you so much for sharing this!

    I wanted to know if you use expeller pressed coconut oil or extra virgin coconut oil for this recipe.

    I have both, but sometimes I don’t like the strong coconut flavor from the extra virgin oil in some recipes.

  5. The recipe looks yummy but I can not handle tumeric.It goes right to my head and I get a

    migraine so will make it without this spice There are very few spices that I can tolerate.

    Thanks for the recipe

    1. Sorry to hear this Cheryl! You could try adding some nut butter, raw cacao powder, or even some lemon essential oil for different flavor variations on this!

  6. Just made them and I love them. I think I’m gonna use unsalted butter next time though. They seem to be a little salty. Thanks for all your recipes. Can’t wait to try more.

  7. I can’t use turmeric or cacao due to oxalate issues but plan to try it with mint leaves (pulverised and sweetened to make a flavouring)

  8. WOW these are A-MAZING!!!! Thank you so much. I have made several things from your website and ALL have been great. That is saying a lot because I have MANY food sensitivities with my Lyme, SIBO, leaky gut and moreI

    I switch out the “1/2 cup grass-fed butter or ghee” for another 1/2 cup of coconut oil since I do not eat dairy, and it works great, and it looks like butter with the turmeric!

    Thanks again Dr Jockers!

  9. My highly infected gall badder was removed 30 years ago. Is eating such high fat foods hard on my liver? I don’t seem to be aware of any problems, but not sure what issues would be obvious if my liver was rebelling.

  10. I have been advised to stay away from all sugar and sugar substitutes,
    including stevia as it also can feed cancers of all types. Dr. Jockers
    what do you know about this? Have there been any tests done on stevia that would indicate this?

    Thank you
