Horchata de Chufa

Horchata de chufa is the iconic drink of Valencia. It is a refreshing cool shake made from the chufa, a tuber sometimes called a tiger nut. Blended with sugar and flavored with cinnamon and lemon, the chufa has a rich, creamy flavor. This recipe requires authentic chufa nuts and should be consumed within a day or can be frozen for later.

1/2 pound (250 grams – 8.9 oz) dried chufa nuts

1 quart (liter) water

1 cinnamon stick (optional)

1 tsp grated lemon peel (optional)

About 1 cup sugar (try less the first time - you can always add more!)


Soak the chufa nuts in water for 24 hours. Drain.

In a blender, grind the nuts, water, cinnamon, sugar and lemon until you have an even, smooth mixture.

Let it settle for a half an hour.

Press the paste through a strainer to obtain fresh horchata.

Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Finish in the freezer for 20 minutes until slightly slushy.
