Horchata de Chufa, or Tiger Nut Milk is a delicious and nutritious nut free, lactose free, dairy free drink! It is made from soaking, blending and straining tiger nuts, and it originated in Spain many years ago.
Legend has it that Horchata (spelled originally as Orxata) got its name when a young girl in a village offered some to the king of Catalunya in Spain. After enjoying the drink the king asked what it was. When the young girl answered ‘tiger nut milk’, the king exclaimed this isn’t milk, this is ‘Or, xata !’ In Catalan ‘or’ means gold, and ‘xata’ pronounced chata, means sweetie.
