What is Horchata Valenciana?

Horchata is a traditional drink from Spain, made from tiger nuts (chufas), sweetened with sugar and flavored with cinnamon. Very popular in Valencia, it has a creamy, slightly nutty flavor and is often served cold as a refreshing drink, especially recommendable in Summer days.

 

How to serve Horchata?

The ideal way to serve horchata de chufa is to chill it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, you can add a few ice cubes to the glass to make it even more refreshing. For a finishing touch, you can lightly dust the surface with a bit of cinnamon.

 

What is Chufa?

The chufa, tiger nuts in English, is a small, wrinkled tuber that grows on the Cyperus esculentus plant. Originally from North Africa and widely cultivated in the Valencia region of Spain, chufa is best known as the main ingredient in horchata, a refreshing traditional drink. In addition to its use in horchata, chufa is consumed as a snack and used in the production of flour and oil, standing out for its nutritional properties, such as its high fiber, vitamin, and mineral content.
