5 Smoothie Recipes to Nourish You This Ramadhan

Smoothies aren’t particularly popular to have throughout the fasting month — especially when you have the options of having ayam golek and rendang instead! However, having a glass of smoothie for berbuka makes a lot of sense because a) it’s cool and refreshing to revive you after a whole day of fasting, and b) it is highly nutritious and filling; keeping you from overeating later in the evening. Plus, smoothies are very quick and easy to make! All it takes is just 5 minutes of your time.

Check out these five smoothie recipes to enjoy during sahur and and iftar:
