No-Bake Turmeric Balls

These no-bake balls are like fall in a ball—they have all the flavors of fall weather and they’re here to stay! I will warn you, your hands may get a little yellow from the turmeric but don’t worry, that’s not permanent! Also, it’s important you include the black pepper; it’s what will activate the turmeric health properties. Turmeric contains a property called curcumin and when combined with piperine (in black pepper), it’s been shown that it is better absorbed into the body. Ready, set, ROLL!
