  •  You can add in a shot of espresso to make this a Turmeric Coffee. Don’t have espresso on hand? You can add 1 teaspoon of instant coffee.
  • To help with the absorption of turmeric and other ingredients, add a pinch of black pepper. Alternatively, you can add in some solid coconut oil to the saucepan to help. A pinch shouldn’t change the taste any.
