Turmeric Paste Recipe – Updated (AIP, Paleo, Dairy and Refined Sugar Free)

I am reposting this recipe because over time I have made some changes and thought it a good idea. The changes have made it more of a paste than a slurry (which didn’t work very well). I know most people don’t appreciate the taste of this particular spice, but it has the most beneficial properties for anyone suffering from a lot of pain.

When I was in extreme pain, I took a LOT of pain killers. It wasn’t until I was given this recipe and found out about turmeric and all its wonderful benefits┬áthat I started to use it. I am totally blown away by how well it works and how quickly.

If you are experiencing pain, you should try this recipe – although saying this, you might want to add my Chai Tea Latte recipe to it to get it down! Turmeric on its own isn’t very pleasant, however, tweak it a bit and you will still get all the benefits with good taste too!
