So, next time you add turmeric to your dishes, make sure you add some black pepper as well.
Step 1 – Get your turmeric paste done
- 1/4 cup turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup purified water
Add the ingredients to a small saucepan and stir well. Raise your heat to medium high and stir the mixture constantly until it forms into a thick paste. Cooking it does not take much time, so make sure you do not step away from your stove.
Let your turmeric paste cool at room temperature, then transfer it into a small glass container or jar. Store it in your fridge.
Step 2 – Now it is time for your golden milk
- 1 cup almond milk (hemp or coconut also make a nice alternative)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp turmeric paste (or more, depending on your liking)
- honey to taste
Add all the ingredients to a clean saucepan, except for the honey. Crack your heat up to medium and stir constantly. Make sure your mixture does not boil. Once it has cooled slightly, stir in some organic honey.
