My first ´milk´ soap. Horchata is a drink made from the chufa. It is a very popular Valencian refreshment during the hot summer months. I believe the new world version uses rice milk instead of the chufa or tigernuts.
I couldn´t find actual chufas in my neighborhood, and it looks like kind of a process from that excellent pictoral, so I substituted the comercially available stuff sold in bottles. Other than chufa and water, the only ingredients listed were sugar and a chemical thickener.
Made with olive, coconut, sweet almond, palm and castor oils and cocoa butter. Unscented but sprinkled with cinnamon.
