Homemade Tiger Nut Milk (Horchata De Chufa) by Alphafoodie

Images and recipe by Alphafoodie

*Servings 4 cups


  • 1 cup Tiger Nuts
  • 4 cups filtered water


  • Start by soaking the tiger nuts for six hours or overnight. They will swell in size ever so slightly and will make them easier to blend into creamy, smooth milk.

  • Add the soaked tiger nuts into the Nutramilk processor. Blend the nuts down to rough pieces.

  • Add the water and blend again till creamy and smooth. This usually takes between 2-3 minutes.
  • Using the NutraMilk processor, allows me to drain the liquid directly into a bottle while keeping the tiger nut pulp leftovers* in the jug.

  • When using a regular blender/food processor, after blending the nuts with the water, pour the liquid into a bowl through a nut milk bag. Squeeze the nut milk bag to get all the milky liquid out. Then pour into a bottle.
  • You could also use a fine-mesh sieve and press out the leftover tiger nut pulp to drain any liquid.
  • Store in a glass bottle in the fridge for 3 days
