Golden Paste Recipe

Now that you have an understanding of how beneficial golden paste can be for your health, we will know teach you how to create your own!  The recipe is relatively straight forward but it is important to follow the recipe instructions below.  After you have made the substance a few times then you can begin to alter the recipe to fulfill your desires.

Most recipes will all contain the following ingredients: turmeric powder, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and a liquid such as milk or water.  Recipes can change by adding other ingredients such as coconut oil or altering how much of each ingredient goes into the recipe.  Below is the recipe that I use for golden paste:

  • 1/2 cup of turmeric powder
  • 1 cup of milk (this can be almond milk or whole milk)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup of fresh coconut oil

We combine all of these ingredients into a small pan on the stovetop.  We highly recommend utilizing a low heat setting in order to not over heat the combination.  We slowly will mix the ingredients together until the oil is completely melted.  If you don't have any turmeric we believe it is vital for the recipe, but if you don't have any then there are a few alternatives for turmeric.

Golden Paste For Dogs

Turmeric golden paste has been used for dogs and cats for years because of the health benefits it provides them.  The paste has been used to improve the health of humans and it can also be used to help improve the help of dogs and cats.  Turmeric golden paste for dogs is often used to help dogs that struggle with joint pain or inflammation.

If you have an older dog that is having trouble walking or climbing up stairs, we believe this can be a great option to help alleviate their pain and inflammation.  We typically will make extra paste so that we have enough for our family as well as enough to give to our dogs.

Golden Paste For Dogs Recipe

turmeric golden paste for your dog

The recipe for golden paste when making it for dogs is very similar to the recipe for when you are making it for humans.  We typically will change it up slightly in order to give our dog less cinnamon and more water.  This will make it a thinner consistency which our dog seems to prefer compared to a thicker consistency.  Below is our golden paste for dogs recipe:

  • 1/2 cup of turmeric powder
  • 1 & 1/2 cup of water (we prefer water instead of milk because it is gentler on our dogs stomach)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup of fresh coconut oil

As you can see this recipe is very similar to our recipe for humans but instead of milk we add water as milk can upset a dogs stomach.  And we reduce the amount of spices since dogs have added flavor sensors in their tongue and mouth that we don't want to overwhelm.  We use the same amount of turmeric powder for our dog recipe compared to our human recipe.

We hope that you enjoyed our article and we hope that you begin using golden paste for your family as well as for your dog!
