  1. When it says turmeric powder, is that the spice you buy at the grocery store in the spice section?

    Hello, my husband and I like to use Curcumin 2000x by Bell. It’s a supplement that has turmeric in it. It can be taken three times a day and has piperine in it already.

      Hi Leslie, I take curcumin supplement with piperine as well and love how it strengthens my immunity. This golden milk is also a good way to consume turmeric and enjoy of its full health benefits. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’ve tried but can’t develop a taste for this drink or for turmeric. Any suggestions on making the golden milk more palatable? Thanks.

    1. Hi Donna, it might take a few tries to get used to the taste/smell of turmeric if you’re using it for the first time. So use just a pinch the first time and gradually increase up to 1/4 teaspoon. Another way of doing this is to add it to any hot beverage that you like! 🙂
