Hi Sandra, Thankyou you for your comment. I would suggest making it up without first, and then taste. Then add the black pepper, as you need to consume it within 20 minutes to get the fresh action of the piperine. Many blessings 🙂
Just curious… I know that turmeric is better absorbed with black pepper extract (piper nigrum) and also with oil.
Since you know what this tastes like, before I make it would either of those work with the taste or should I add them prior?
