First Make The Golden Paste

½ cup turmeric powder

1 cup spring water (+ ½ extra if necessary)

1.5 tsp ground black pepper (it helps your body absorb the tumeric)

5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Mix water (1 cup) with turmeric powder in a pan and slowly heat it up and stir for 6-10 minutes until you get a thick paste (add the additional ½ cup water if it is too thick).
  2. Add black pepper and oil and continue stirring until all the ingredients are fully mixed in together.
  3. Allow the paste to cool. Store in the refrigerator in a jar for up to 1-2 weeks.

How to Make Golden Milk:

1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil

1/4 teaspoon of turmeric paste

1 cup of almond milk

Organic, raw, unfiltered honey for taste

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients together over medium heat except the honey. Do not allow it to boil. Add a bit of honey for taste and drink as soon as it’s cool enough.

  

 If you want to use the paste in other ways:

The paste can be taken as is in small amount (1/4 tsp) 2 to 3 times a day, or mixed with honey for a better taste.

It also can be added to different dishes: salads, smoothies, curries, rice or soup. Experiment with what tastes better for you.
