Healthy Smoothie: Ideal for Sahoor

There seems to be a smoothie or shake for just about everything nowadays from weight-loss to weight-gain (muscle). So I thought, it would be great to have one for fasting, which aims to keep you fuller for longer.

This quick and simple recipe is both tasty and nourishing. It is also a perfect preparation for the long fast ahead. This smoothie has the complex carbohydrates to keep you going through the day. The fresh fruits add vital vitamins and minerals to ensure that you get the micro-nutrients, which are often found lacking in diets during Ramadhan.

Ingredients

  • 500ml Low fat greek style yogurt, which has been frozen for around 4 hours.
  • 60ml Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 100g Frozen Mixed Summer Berries.
  • 1/2 Banana/Avocado
  • 40g Oats
  • Serves 4

For the Body builders out there.
40g of Casein protein for growth, repair and maintenance of your muscle mass.

Optional extras
For those who need an extra sugary kick, use dates or honey to add natural sweetness.

Combine all the ingredients together in a powerful blender, until the consistency is like that of a thick milkshake. You may need to add more liquid if its too gooey. You could use fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or any other berries you want.

I hope you enjoy my take on smoothies, Make dua me and for all of humanity, especially at the time of Suhoor (Tahajjud).

    • Ws, Musa I use instant oats from an online health and fitness store called My Protein. Instant oats are ground oats. You could do the same at home with supermarket bought porridge oats. Although, I’ve also made the smoothie without grinding the oats, the texture is slightly thicker.
