Summer’s here and we love it!

But here in Spain summer means heat and that’s why we need ways to get through all those hot days. One of the best options is a nice cool drink to refresh you and get your energy back. Tiger nut horchata is the star of these summer days – when summer comes along the first word that pops into our mind is horchata! This traditional drink from Valencia is made from tiger nuts, water and sugar.

But you don’t always need to have a glass of horchata to enjoy this drink. In this recipe we suggest a different way of savouring the delicious taste of horchata – in a cold cake, ideal for dessert or a snack on hot summer days. To make this cake we’ll be using Amandín Organic Tiger Nut Horchata. Follow the steps below and surprise your friends and family with this cake.

 

Ingredients

  • 600 g whipped cream
  • 5 egg whites beaten to stiff peaks
  • 5 sheets of gelatin
  • 380 g condensed milk
  • 200 ml Amandín Organic Tiger Nut Horchata
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Peel of half a lemon

Method

Step 1

First, soak the gelatin in cold water.

Step 2

Next, put the Amandín Organic Tiger Nut Horchata, the ungrated half lemon peel and the cinnamon stick in a pan to warm for a few minutes.

Step 3

After heating all this up, drain the contents of the pan and carry on heating the liquid, in which you thoroughly dissolve the gelatin.

Step 4

Then add the condensed milk, stir well and leave to cool.

Step 5

While the mixture is cooling, whip up the egg whites with a pinch of salt and add them to the mixture once it has cooled.

Step 6

Finally, fold the cream into the mixture.

Step 7

Once the mixture is ready, put it into a mould and leave it in the fridge for about 6 hours.

Step 8

Once it is properly frozen, take it out of the mould and decorate it. In this case we used red fruits, but you could also sprinkle cinnamon over it.
