In a saucepan heat the water, turmeric and black pepper until it forms a thick paste, stirring and cooking for about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the coconut oil. Your paste should now resemble wet sand. Transfer the Golden Paste into a glass jar with a lid, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Add 2 teaspoons of the paste to warm milk of your choice. My fave is oat milk, but try it with almond, soy and rice milk too.
