Add the milk and turmeric paste into a pot and cook on medium heat. Add the black pepper which helps with the absorption of the turmeric, plus the ginger/cinnamon/cardamom to taste, some other great anti-inflammatories.
Stir constantly until just before boiling.
Remove from heat. When cooler, add the oil(s) and honey to taste.
The coconut oil supplies you with healthy fats and further increases turmeric absorption.
The drink should be a lovely golden colour, hence its name.
