Turmeric Paste and Golden Milk

Mahaila McKellar

Yield: About 1/2 cup (24-48 servings)


** Please consult with your doctor before using, especially if you are pregnant, a nursing mother, and/or if you take medication for or have issues with blood thinning, diabetes, gallbladder, or stomach complications.  


Turmeric Paste:



1/8 cup organic Turmeric Powder

3/4 cup filtered water  (not tap water)

1/4 teaspoon organic Black Peppercorns

1 tablespoon organic Virgin Coconut Oil



1. Crush or crack the peppercorns.  (You can use already ground black pepper if that's all you have, but freshly cracked peppercorns are best). 

2. In a small stainless steel, glass, or ceramic saucepan, mix the first three ingredients:  turmeric powder, water and peppercorns.

3. Bring just to a boil and immediately turn the heat down.  

4. Cook mixture over medium low heat, stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes – until it becomes a thick paste.  Watch carefully so it does not burn.  Add water as you go, if needed.  You want to end up with a thick, but not dry, paste.

5. Remove the pan from the heat and fully whisk in the coconut oil.

6. After the paste has cooled a bit, put it in a lidded glass jar.

7. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


Golden Milk (1 serving):



1/2 tsp - 1 tsp  Turmeric Paste

1 cup organic Milk of choice: Coconut, Pastured Whole Cow’s, Almond, etc.


Optional to add to the saucepan:

Seeds of 1 organic Cardamom pod, seeds removed from husk

1/4 tsp organic ground Cinnamon


Optional to add to the mug:

1 tsp Organic raw unfiltered Honey (Caution: Honey can be dangerous/fatal for children under the age of 1 year.

1/8 tsp organic Vanilla Extract (optional to add to the mug)

1/4 tsp organic Ghee (optional to add to the mug)



1. In a small stainless steel, glass, or ceramic saucepan, stir and gently heat (do not boil) the turmeric paste, milk, and optional cardamom seeds and cinnamon, for about 5 minutes.  Do not allow it to boil.

2. If desired, add honey, vanilla and/or ghee to your mug.  

3. Pour the golden milk into the mug through a strainer (to remove black peppercorns and cardamom seeds).  

4. Stir and enjoy.  :)



- I've read that by including the coconut oil you can actually store this paste for up to 6 weeks.  Mine never lasts that long, but I have found that it's still good at 3 weeks.   

- Turmeric is used as a clothing dye, and it's easy to see why.  So be careful to not stain your clothes with this paste.  

- ***I want to note again that, because of turmeric's remarkable health properties, including helping to thin the blood, and most especially if already taking meditation for blood thinning, please consult with your doctor before consuming this recipe!***
