How to Use Turmeric Paste
You may have thought, how can I incorporate the spice into my diet? There are many ways, but in searching this out for myself, I had to find something my whole family would consume on a regular basis.
I came across golden milk a couple of years ago and it is amazingly delicious! To my excitement, I wasn’t the only one who thought so! When I call who “wants golden milk,” I hear an explosion of me’s! And for good reason! It’s creamy, lightly sweet, and bursting with your favorite spices! Turmeric paste makes it quick and easy to make Golden Milk and only takes a couple of minutes to whip together. Make sure you don’t leave out the black pepper. It makes the active ingredient curcumin more bioavailable to our bodies!
You could also use turmeric paste in smoothies, soups, curries and much more!

Need the golden milk recipe ?
Love how easy it was to make!!
Trina, you have been great, thank you!!
Can children benefit from this and how can we make it appealing to them?
Hi Sonya! Absolutely. It can help with cough and cold symptoms, it can work like an antibiotic, aid in digestion and much much more! It can be beneficial to adults and kids alike. My kids drink it in golden milk ( recipe on my blog) or in the mornings a lot of times I make smoothies with the paste. I add coconut milk, banana, tsp of the paste, flax seed, and cinnamon. If you have more picky eaters add a tbsp of organic peanut butter and tsp raw cacao powder!
I have organic turmeric root. Could I juice it and use the juice in the paste?
I definitely think you can make it with fresh. If you have a good food processor or blender, I would use that instead of a juicer, and blend the fresh turmeric root with the other ingredients and store in you jar?
