Turmeric powder has been used for thousands of years in Asia and is a major part of Chinese medicine.  It has really only become popular in America recently and that is how I discovered it. 

I feel like I am constantly looking for ways to improve my health and the health of my kids.  I suffer from anxiety pretty severely and have a really hard time wanting to use prescription medications as the only option.  Now, don’t get my wrong, I am happy to have my little bottle of Xanax, but I need other solutions.  I often look into the more natural paths that may help and believe it or not, Turmeric has helped!  So, lets talk about some of their benefits.

There are so many benefits of turmeric powder and I wanted to list a few out for you.  Now, keep in mind, I am NOT A DOCTOR…but I have researched it for myself and just want to share what I have found.  I am in NO WAY AN EXPERT…just passionate about things that I have found to love.

So, a few months ago, I decided I wanted to try out this miracle powder Turmeric.  I started by trying it by adding it to my green smoothies in the morning. I didn’t mind it much…but the flavor of Turmeric is strong and it definitely gave my smoothies a bite, with an almost peppery flavor.  Plus, when I added it and my kids drank it, they always complained.  

Eventually, I decided I needed to try a different way to take my turmeric.  I know I could obviously take it as a supplement in a capsule, but I am one who likes to go all in when I am trying something for my health and wanted to be able to enjoy it. 

I came across Golden Milk, or Turmeric Milk…and let me tell you, I was intrigued.

So, I began trying out recipes.  I found some of them to be too spicy, adding cayenne pepper and others.  They werent bad, but they were almost more savory than sweet and I thought that they would be great with bone broth instead of milk.  

I also read about turmeric paste and liked the idea of having something like this already made that I can mix into my milk.  

Turmeric paste is so easy to make and it has so many health benefits.  Check out the recipe here!

I finally came up with a recipe that I loved myself.  I got just the right ratios and was really happy with my turmeric paste recipe so I thought that I would share this with you!

A few more thoughts about Turmeric Paste:

The pepper is an important element in the turmeric paste.  Ground black pepper aids in the absorption of the Turmeric in your body.  I cannot even tell it is there, so you shouldn’t have to worry about the taste.

I have read that you can give this turmeric paste to your dogs as well!  It is good for their hearts, joints, and other vital organs.  And with the coconut oil, there are even more benefits.  I am going to start giving it to my dog Bruin soon.  

I would love to hear if you have tried adding Turmeric to your diet and if you have made your own turmeric recipes.

  1. I just want to confirm turmeric works. After doing research to help with family member dealing with cancer, I found turmeric as a anti-inflamatory many times. So… after finding my root canal didn’t work out and I had a abcessed tooth now… which is a bump on gums from the inflammation. So… for the hell of it, I took a slice of turmeric root and put it between cheek and gum where the bump was… and the swelling is gone within hours… and gone for days. While I consider my expensive options to fix the tooth…. turmeric is my magic. It really is a natural remedy. Proof!!!!! Just not so easy to find in all grocery stores. More reason to believe there are actual natural medicines.

    I’m wondering if I can freeze half of the quantity as I don’twant to waste the remainder after 2 weeks in fridge.

    I have used the golden paste for several years off and on. My 13-year-old dog had arthritis so bad walking was painful for him. I started using the golden paste mix with chicken broth in his dog food he’s like a puppy again. At first he didn’t like it so it took a couple of days before he finally ate it. Now he loves it. I take it as Well. I have lupus and fibromyalgia. It really helps with the inflammation and pain.

    I’ve been mixing a teaspoon a day into my homemade dog food for my 12 year old Shepherd Mix, Rueben. He suffers from pretty bad arthritis in his back legs and hips. He also has environmental allergies which affect his skin. I must say, I think this paste is helping him. He’s doing well with the combination of medicine and natural remedies I’ve been giving him. Only question I have is, what is the dosage for me? I’m wanting to use it for multiple reasons, but mainly anti-inflammatory purposes. And would adding it to a smoothie be a good option for consumption? Thanks for the awesome recipe!
