How to Make a Dry Turmeric Tea Mix

If you’d rather not mix up the spices each time, you can easily make a mixture of the spices and just add to warmed milk when ready.

Mix up:

1/2 cup turmeric powder
1/4 cup cinnamon powder
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1-2 Tablespoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne (optional)
Then, just add 2 teaspoons of this mix to 2 cups of milk of choice for a faster recipe.

Golden Paste:
1/2 cup organic turmeric powder
1/2 cup clean water (no fluoride)
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
5 Tablespoons virgin coconut oil
In a stainless steel pot cook together: Water, turmeric and black pepper until it forms a thick paste, stir and cook for 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add virgin coconut oil, using a whisk to fully mix in the coconut oil. Finally, transfer to a glass jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.
