Golden milk is a comforting, delicious drink with all the powerful antioxidant properties of turmeric, minus the bitter taste. Turmeric is, without doubt, one of the world’s super spices with well-documented, powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
It will help with:
• Reducing inflammation
• Fighting bacteria
• Mopping up toxins in the body
• Clearing up itchy skin
• Improving digestion
• Deterring internal parasites
• Protecting against cancer
• Cleansing the blood
Make it with goat’s milk as dogs don’t tolerate the lactose in cow’s milk. Add raw coconut oil as turmeric is fat-soluble, meaning it dissolves in fat and oil, rather than water to make it more bioavailable.
All you do is make a turmeric paste, store it in the fridge for up to 30 days or freeze it in small amounts. Then you can make golden milk any time you like or the need arises.

• 120ml water
• 60g organic turmeric powder
Mix the water and turmeric in a small pan, keeping mixing on medium heat until you have a thick paste. Keep a little extra water on standby in case it gets too thick. It won’t take two shakes to become a paste so don’t walk away. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a month.
