Golden Milk Paste (with bonus Golden Milk Latte recipe)

Golden Milk Paste (with bonus Golden Milk Latte recipe)


  • 1/4 cup dried Turmeric OR 100-150gm fresh turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon dried Ginger OR 3 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • pinch of Salt, more if using fresh turmeric


  1. If using dried turmeric or ginger: Measure all ingredients and add to a small pot. Stir well to incorporate- go to step #3.
  2. If using fresh turmeric & fresh ginger, use a spoon to peel the skin then chop into 1″ pieces. Add to a blender with other ingredients and blend until smooth, then add to a small pot.
  3. With all ingredients in a pot, heat over medium low, stirring frequently. We don’t want this to boil, just simmer gently. The dried turmeric version will be quick to thicken- and can possibly burn, stir often.
  4. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, until combined and has slightly thickened to a paste. Turmeric paste will thicken substantially as it cools and is placed in the fridge.
  5. Note: Turmeric paste using fresh turmeric & ginger will need to simmer longer, perhaps 7-10 minutes. Stir often and don’t let burn or boil!
  6. Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

    Golden Milk Latte Recipe

    To make golden milk with this turmeric paste, simply whisk 2-3 teaspoons of turmeric paste into 1/2 cup of milk in a pot until heated through.

    **Pro tip: Freeze the paste into portions so you can easily just pop this into a small saucepan or jug of milk to heat with when you're ready.

    **Turmeric paste using fresh turmeric/ginger will need more salt than dried turmeric paste. Adjust seasoning as needed.

    **Dried turmeric paste is more concentrated; the flavor is stronger and more potent in dried turmeric paste.

    ** I used a bullet blender to make fresh turmeric paste- as many regular size blenders require high volume of ingredients to smoothly blend, you may need to double this recipe if using a full size blender- or add more water then simmer longer for it to thicken appropriately!
