Dairy free sugar free beetroot smoothie.
Muslims are observing Ramadan, a holy month of fasting and religious devotion.
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and is the holiest of the month as it is believed that the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed during this month.
During this holy month of Ramadan Muslims are required to abstain from eating and drinking from dawn till sunset.
Drinks play a vital role when we are on fasting. A glass of chilled and refreshing drink at Iftaar time is energy boosting.
Fasting is a tough task for people, who abstain from food and drink until sunset in this summer season.
Our this week’s 97th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #Ramadan recipes.
Fasting people need to drink more after Iftaar in order to avoid dehydration.
So here is a refreshing chilled and yummy dairy free beetroot smoothie for Iftaar. Beetroots are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals.
