Recipes with Dainess Chef’s School: Tiger Nut Pudding (Atadwe Milk)


Tigernut pudding, also known as horchata de chufa, is a popular dessert that originated in Spain and is also enjoyed in various West African countries, including Ghana as Atadwe Milk. The dessert is made from Tigernut Milk, a nutty-flavored, dairy-free milk that is made from soaking and blending Tigernuts with water.

Tigernut pudding is often served chilled and can be garnished with fruit, nuts, or whipped cream. It has a creamy texture and a slightly sweet and nutty flavor that is enjoyed by many. It is also a healthy dessert option, as Tigernuts are a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are low in fat and calories.
