Tiger nut milk shake

We spend the summer in a wonderful town in Valencia and since we arrived there is something that cannot be missing in the fridge and it is a good Valencian tiger nut horchata. It's a drink delicious and very refreshing It takes very cold and accompanied by some typical rolls called "fartons".

This summer I discovered that with Thermomix® it can be done at home naturally and without preservatives or artificial colors. Only real tigernuts, water, sugar, cinnamon and lemon.

As it does not contain preservatives, the homemade tigernut horchata is not easy to preserve because it can turn sour. So, if you have leftovers and you are not going to consume it in the following days, the best thing is freeze it and take it out a few hours before serving. It will be delicious and just as refreshing as if it were freshly made.

    It look very nice! The problem is that here in Madrid it doesn't sound like I have seen tigernuts anywhere to buy them. Where do you think I could look?

    1.    Elena said

      Well I do not know what to tell you. I suppose it was in a department store or nut store or in El Corte Inglés, but I don't know. I go to Valencia a lot and I take advantage of the trips to buy tigernuts or some other little thing. A kiss.

      in the candy stores you can find tigernuts without problems

      On Andrés Mellado 46 street in Madrid. (Casa Ruiz bulk)

    Maybe you will find them in Mercadona or in the English Court, as Elena says.

    By the way, I tried to make horchata at home and I didn't like it.
    I strained it and collected and recontracolle, but nothing, I still stumbled.
    The flavor was rich because I like tigernuts, but the texture, caxissssssssss, was not what I thought.

    I have to say that I am Valencian and I love horchata, but nothing, it does not come out.

      You have to strain it with a very fine cloth or strainer, I have a little bag that I made with sheer fabric and it works great, you can also use a gauze of these that they sell in the pharmacy, the size of a napkin so you can handle it and squeeze well

    Today I discovered this recipe and I am going to try it since my son loves horchata.
    I did it on one occasion and it did not come out well, it was like very watery, I tried again but when it did not come out I gave up. I hope I can tell you that it turned out great.
    You are wonderful.
    A kiss

    1.    Elena said

      I hope you like María A., we really like horchata and the truth is that we love this recipe. Greetings and thank you very much for seeing us.

        It also came out a little watery. If I put more amount of tigernut or less water, will I solve it?

        1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

          Hello Sergio:

          If you want a more intense flavor, add less water. For me, the ideal ratio is 1 part of tigernut per 4 of water, that is, in this recipe there would be 250 g of tigernut per 1 liter of water.

          Happy summer!!

    Hello Elena, I've been looking for the Valencian buns that are dipped in the horchata for a long time but I don't know what they are, in my house everyone likes horchata a lot, I always buy it made but now with your recipe I will make it, you can tell me what these cakes are called ? And if you have a prescription from them? . I await your response and thank you very much. A GREETING
    Today the «Hdad d Huelva» comes out hehehehe, you don't know what is formed in Huelva

    1.    Elena said

      Hello Immaculate, those muffins are called "Fartons" and I have a recipe pending. I'll try to put it on shortly. Long live the Rocío and the La Blanca Paloma !.

    How good it has turned out, I have put some ice and it is a little hailstorm. It is luxurious, only I do not put cinnamon or lemon because that is for meringue milk. A greeting.

    1.    Elena said

      I'm glad you like it, Mako! All the best.

  7.   Nuria52 said

    Hello Elena, this week I have premiered in the "delicious" horchata, this luxury.
    Only in the recipe when I went to make it, it said 1/2 cm. of lemon skin, I put the skin of half a lemon but only the yellow, and the cinnamon put 1/2 cm. I put 1/4 of a stick.
    I do not know if it was like that but if it came out great and we have put on our boots, well I did twice ... See you soon *****

    1.    Elena said

      I'm very glad you like it, Nuria52 !. I add very little lemon and cinnamon peel because it is really only made with tigernuts. All the best.

  8.   pink said

    I would like to know, if the tigernut is put in hot or warm water, is it hydrated before? Resuslta that this afternoon I have a visitor and last night I forgot to put them to soak. Thank you

    1.    Elena said

      Hello Rosa, the truth is that I do not know and I have not tried it. I always put them in cold water. All the best.

    As a Valencian, I love horchata. Since almost a baby my mother bought it in summer from the horchateria and she gave it to me for a snack. Now I make it in my tmx and it comes out delicious, I don't make it lemon peel or cinnamon.

    1.    Elena said

      I love it too, Ana! It's delicious. All the best.

  10.   Easter said

    Buaaa chicaaaas !!! you are getting better with each recipe… right now I have made the horchata, I had the tigernuts since yesterday to soak… mmmmmmmm !!! I couldn't imagine that it would come out so delicious ... I have made it without cinnamon and lemon (although I doubted a lot) but since my favorite is the one from «la jijonenca» (ice cream franchise) and that one does not take, because I have dedicated myself in the end to making it alone with the tigernuts and sugar ... what a pity not to have also had the recipe for the fartons because if so, they will surely make me a wave at the snack… .jijijijij, thank you very much for sharing the recipes, greetings

    1.    Elena said

      I'm very glad you like it, Pascu !. And what a coincidence! I just soaked the tigernuts to make the horchata tomorrow. All the best.

      1.    Easter said

        yeah, what a coincidence !! did you make it with lemon and cinnamon? have you ever made it only with sugar and tigernut? I've already done a few times, now I'm preparing another ... mmmmm

        1.    Elena said

          Hello Easter, I usually make it only with tigernuts and sugar, but sometimes I like to add a piece of lemon peel and cinnamon to give it another flavor. All the best.

    Hello, if I want to make it coconut, how many grams of coconut should I put? the same amount or more? Thank you

    1.    Elena said

      Hi Risell, I'm sorry I can't help you. I have never tried to make it with coconut and I don't know the amounts. All the best.

  12.   WENCESLAO said

    The perfect tiger nut horchata, very good. If it sneaks in as you explain, there are no stumbles as they say in a comment.
    I did not add the lemon and cinnamon, I changed the sugar for fructose and Agave syrup. I take this opportunity to make everyone who visits your blog aware of how harmful the consumption of sugar is, be it white or brown. You can ask our friend google: consequences of sugar consumption and you will see what you will find.
    Thanks for your recipe.

    I have had the Thermomix for more or less a year and a half, and I have been following this website for more or less a year and a half. I had never proposed to write a comment, but today I tried this recipe and seeing the result I could not resist. Good grief! I am lucky to live in C. Valenciana and therefore to enjoy the "orxata" anywhere, but like this ... none.
    Thank you very, very much for the recipe.

    1.    Ana Valdes said
