Tiger Nuts Smoothie Mix

Tiger Nuts are actually NOT nuts, they are a tuber that grows below the ground's surface. They have all of the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts and then some, but without the stuff that can adversely affect allergies. They are packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients.

Like Almonds, Tiger Nuts can be made into MILK, and in Spain they make a drink that they call "Horchata", which is Tiger Nuts Milk and a bunch of fruit and alcohol is OK too.

While Tiger Nuts Milk is incredibly healthy for you, it's NUT FREE, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Non GMO, Cholesterol Free, Dairy Free, Non Allergenic, packed with Nutrients and Vitamins, and it's Paleo Perfect, it's still time consuming and not the easiest to make.

Tiger nuts rival olive oil in helping to prevent cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and thrombosis. High levels of fiber, good cholesterol, and other nutrients help control appetite and can even aid in managing healthy body weight. High magnesium levels help control blood pressure and encourage circulation.

I use it every morning when I make kale smoothie. When I mix with kale, banana and Tiger Nuts Smoothie mix, you really can't taste that smoothie mix. I'm not even sure if that has flavor or not, but I like it. Because that means I can mix with anything.

Elegant Cheese Slicer / Chocolate Truffle Shaver

I always wanted chocolate shaver. Well, it's really cheese slicer but you can use it to shave chocolate, vegetables and more. But anyway, I use it to shave chocolate.

-Highest quality Italian made stainless steel, able to cut through cheeses and chocolates with little to no effort. It will not absorb flavors when slicing and shaving truffles or cheese.

-Features an adjustable blade so you can control the thickness of your chocolate and cheese slices. The razor sharp serrated blade adjusts from paper-thin to .13 inches, perfect for ingredients and garnishes.

-Creates attractive slices for cheese trays, antipasti, sandwiches and more. Ideal for all common semi-hard cheeses. Also use it as a garlic slicer, a chocolate truffle shaver and so much more!
