This easy tigernut milk recipe comes together so easily, with a naturally sweet and nutty flavor,and makes a great non-dairy milk alternative. Also known as “horchata de chufa”, this 2-ingredient homemade tiger nut milk is totally gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and vegan.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup tiger nuts (soaked for at least 6 hours or overnight)
  • 4 cups filtered water


  1. Soak Tiger Nuts: Place the raw tiger nuts in a medium bowl and cover them with water. Let them soak for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain: Drain the soaked tiger nuts and pour away the water that the nuts were soaked in.
  3. Blend: Combine the soaked tiger nuts with the filtered water in the bowl of a high-speed blender and blend for a few minutes until you get a smooth white milk.
  4. Filter: Pour the milk through a nut milk bag to get rid of any fiber that was not processed.
  5. Transfer to Bottle: Use the tigernut milk immediately or transfer to a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator for up 3 days.


Tiger Nuts: I prefer using raw peeled tiger nuts, but you may use whichever type you have.

Make Sure to Soak Tiger Nuts: While soaking the tiger nuts beforehand requires a little extra preparation, it results in ultra creamy milk as the tiger nuts absorb some of the water and become slightly softer.
