@OurTrueRoots are #TIGERNUTS! Organic Gemini

Okay, so I've found a new ON THE GO, OFF DUTY drink that I love. It's the @OurTrueRoots Organic Gemini #TigerNutHorchata. MMmm, my favorite. I discovered this badboy in the fridge at Whole Foods, and became obsessed. I grew up with horchata, but this one is 100x more healthy. And completely vegan (perfect for anyone). My personal favorite is the CHAI Tigernut Horchata, because I love a little spice. But first, WHAT IS A TIGERNUT? I honestly had no idea before either. I just saw horchata, and went for it!! But then, I met the founder at their Brooklyn facility, and he told me all about it and their super special ingrediants.

TIGERNUTS are actually not a nut, but a vegetable. A root! It's one of the first nutrient-rich crops since humans existed...over 2 million years ago! Somehow, we forgot our true roots...which are Tiger Nuts, and now, Organic Gemini is bringing our original source of food back in a big way. Tigernuts are the #1 food source for a type of fiber called Resistance Starch (it's a PREbiotic). Tigernuts fuel our probiotics and give us a strong immune system and prevent against disease. AKA, it's supperrr good for you.

Next to the drinks which I love, I also stock up on the Tigernut flour, and actual raw organic Tigernuts for cooking. 

Here, I made some ultra delicious Banana Tigernut Cinnamon COOKIES

What you need:

1 bag of Tigernut Flour 
1 bag of  raw organic Tigernuts
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 bananas (mashed)
Dash of vanilla extract
1 cup of Agave Nectar 

1. Mash up your bananas and add in the Tigernut FLOUR. Mix it up!

2. Sprinke on your cinnamon and give it a whirl! 

3. Add in your raw organic Tigernuts! I prefer to leave them whole. They have the texture of coconut bits...or you can blend them into little chips. 

4. Throw everything into a larger bowl. Put in 1 cup of Agave Nectar for purely natural sweetness! And also a teaspoon of Sea Salt.

5. Grease your pan with a tiny bit of coconut oil, spread out your cookies, and BAKE for 15-20 minutes!

Enjoy my newest obsession @OurTrueRoots #TigerNuts here at Organic Gemini.

I'm not really into these kind of drinks. I always need to make my drinks myself or then see that the waiter is freshly squeezing juice for me, but anything bottled doesn't work for me.
However, this dress is so beautiful and you def. knew how to style it to perfection!
