TigerNut Smoothie Mix Super Boost Protein Bars + Review

I recently discovered TigerNut while browsing through Instagram and had to check it out.  Did you know... TigerNuts are not nuts, they are small root vegetables which comprised 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet around 2 million years ago. This ancient superfood originates from Africa. It is currently cultivated in West Africa & Spain. 

Organic Gemini was kind enough to send some TigerNut Smoothie Mix for me to try!
TigerNut Smoothie Mix is a powerful smoothie booster that improves the gut's well-being and potentially strengthens the immune system. The combination of energy-packed protein and prebiotic fibers controls cravings & makes you feel fuller longer.

We loved it mixed into our smoothie bowls! Smoothies don't usually hold Jared and I over for too long, but this really did make us feel fuller longer. It's not overly sweet, but it's not too "earthy" tasting either, like some other powders we've added into smoothies. 

Another way we enjoyed it was in our oatmeal. 

We also mixed it into some no bake protein bars! YUM! 

What You Need:
1/2 cup milled flaxseed

1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Whey protein powder
2 tablepoons TigerNut Smoothie Super Boost
1⁄2 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon chia seeds 
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup milk  

Mix everything in the food processor until a batter forms. Then, spread evenly into a baking dish. 

*Optional* You can top with peanuts or another topping of your choice. 

Freeze for about 2 hours and then cut into squares. 

Please check out Organic Gemini's website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for more info. 

Organic Gemini was kind enough to send us TigerNut Super Boost in exchange for an honest review. We were not compensated monetarily, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 


Every once in a while, I ditch the workout clothes, curl my hair, and put on a little makeup for a date night with my hubby. Lucky for me, ...
