Horchata De Almendra (Almond Horchata) from Spain

2 mins (prep 2)
6 ingredients
2.5 servings
Real Horchata from Valencia is made with Chufa (Tiger Nut). Unfortunately, Chufa is not available (that I know of) in America. A suitable substitute for the Chufas are Almonds, which give the Horchata the same texture and similar taste. Horchata is not a dairy product and contains little fat, so it is often referred to as "the drink of the gods" for it's rich but low-fat flavor. From:dderhak@xmission.com. I'm assuming that you'll start with blanched almonds and will use a food processor to grind them.
