Say hello to fresh ginger paste! Ginger Paste is an amazing way to turn up the flavor on everything you cook at home from smoothies to sauces and even sweets! It’s simple to make, easy to store, and even easier to use!




  1. Trim each piece of ginger root to remove all extra knobs, bumps, and twists.
  2. Use a spoon to peel the thin skin off all pieces of ginger root. If the skin is difficult to peel, try soaking in warm water for 3-5 minutes to soften the skin.
  3. Cut into 1″-2″ pieces and add to a blender with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
  4. Use your tamper to push all ginger pieces into the blades and blend until smooth, stopping every 30-60 seconds to scrape down the sides.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. Freeze for longer use.
  6. Add to your favorite curry, stir fry, sauce, soup, smoothie, oatmeal, and sweet treat!


** You can use coconut, grapeseed, or avocado oil for best result.

** Keeps in the fridge 1-2 weeks, freeze in 1-2 tablespoon sized portions for easy use and extended shelflife.
