Step 1 - Easy to make Turmeric Paste
1/2 c of clean water (use distilled or spring)
1/4 of organic turmeric
Place ingredients in small sauce pan
Cook on medium low/medium setting
Stir paste for 7-9 mins
Note: Paste may get a little dried out so continue to add water and stir in

Step 2 - Preparing Golden Milk
Place 1/2 tsp of Turmeric paste in saucepan.
Add 1 cup of milk (cows, unsweetened almond or coconut milk) we enjoy 1/2 goat milk + 1/2 coconut milk
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp each of ginger powder and ground cinnamon. (Adds nice flavor, warmth and helps digestion). Add a dash of black pepper for better absorption of the turmeric.
Heat thoroughly to low boil.
If you like it a little sweeter add 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup.
Strain into a cup
Add 1 tsp of good oil for extra joint lubrication. (We use flax oil, but sesame is good also).
For severe joint pain do a half a teaspoon twice a day by mouth.
