Tigernut horchata

Preparazione 15 min
Tempo totale 2 h 15 min
Porzioni 33 oz


  • 1 cup tigernut or chufa seeds
  • 33 oz water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)


  • Soak tigernut in lukewarm water for two hours.
  • Drain tigernut then blend it with an immersion blender adding all the water, at low speed for about 1 minute or until tigernut has formed a white paste.
  • Strain the liquid squeezing it through a clean cloth over a strainer into another container; try to get out any liquid.
  • The liquid that you have strained from the tigernuts is the tigernut horchata; you can now add cinnamon and vanilla, pour the horchata into a bottle and keep it in the fridge. Consume within 3-4 days.


Horchata de chufa is naturally slightly sweet; if you prefer a sweeter taste you can add some brown sugar or agave syrup.
