Sweet and refreshing, Horchata de Chufa is one of Spain's most famous drinks. You might call it Valencia's version of the milkshake! Made of ground chufa nuts (actually the roots of the chufa plant) grown in the Valle de Nito in Spain, it is sweet and lightly seasoned with cinnamon and lemon. Serve well chilled.
Horchata is the signature beverage of the Community of Valencia. From the Feria of Las Fallas in mid March and on through the summer, horchata is the drink of choice for Valencians of all ages. It is common to see whole families gathered outside of an 'horchateria' enjoying this cool, refreshing drink.
Horchata de chufa is a Mediterranean product, not to be confused with Mexican horchata which is made of rice rather than chufa nuts.
As with many other products, it was the Moors who first began cultivating chufa grass in Spain and originated the refreshing drink Horchata de Chufa from its tuberous roots. It is a favorite beverage in all of Spain, but particularly in Valencia, Murcia and Andalucía.
There is no refrigeration needed to store this horchata, so you can keep it on your pantry shelf until you are ready to serve it. Then place it in the fridge until well chilled before serving - some prefer to keep it in the freezer until it partially frozen for a refreshing icy drink!
Water, chufa nuts, sugar, emulsifiers mono and diglycerides),whey protein, carrageenan, penta sodium triphosphate and aromes.

"I like horchata and this is a very good product. You can drink horchata all year but in summer, when it is so hot, a tall glass of cold horchata will make your day!"
