It is well known that taking turmeric has many benefits for the body. More specifically, people know it for the compound curcumin which is known to have valuable anti-inflammatory properties. But curcumin is just one of over 200 nutrients found in turmeric. It is valuable yes, but it is the sum of all the parts that makes turmeric such a master healer.

Which is why PureXtracts supplies a whole spice turmeric dry extract (extracted from the oil without heat, grinding or processing) so that you get ALL the flavours without the grittiness.

Taking turmeric in this form means no more yellow teeth, no bitter taste and none of that horrible grittiness in your mouth! But if you're wondering how to use our extract, here are 3 simple ways to combine it for some delicious drinks:

1. Turmeric Milk

Turmeric milk has been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for thousands of years.

  • Put ¼ teaspoon of Turmeric Dry Extract in a mug.
  • Heat 300ml of milk (dairy or non-dairy both work) in a pan but do not boil.
  • When the milk is warm, pour a small amount into your mug and stir through the turmeric extract. Once the extract has dissolved, pour over the rest of the milk.

2. Turmeric Tea

A cup of turmeric tea in the morning soothes your body and can stimulate your senses.

Method: boil water and let it cool for 5-10 minutes until it is drinkable hot. Add the other ingredients to you mug, pour over a small amount of the water and mix well. Then pour over the remaining water and stir. You can also let it cool in the fridge for a delicious lemon ginger turmeric iced tea!

Caution: Heat kills goodness in our extracts so always use them at the lowest temperature.

3. Turmeric Fruit Smoothie

Combine the benefits of turmeric with seasonal fruits to give your body a healthy boost of nutrients. Perfect for any time of day!

  • 300ml almond/coconut milk
  • ½ banana
  • 50-60g mixed red berries (fresh or frozen)
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Dry Extract
  • ¼ tsp Ginger or Cinnamon Dry Extract (optional)
  • ½ tsp honey (optional)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 3 large ice cubes

Method: put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


You can include turmeric in almost anything under the sun.
