The colder months are drawing near…time to whip up a batch of healing, nourishing & warming Golden Milk Turmeric Paste! This versatile paste lasts quite a few weeks in the fridge, and can be used to make daily or nightly mugs of Golden Milk (we recommend using your favorite organic nut milk, coconut milk or raw milk!) and can also be added to stews, soups, stir-fries, smoothies and more . Here’s a great recipe to follow and adapt as you like!
