A Date with Ramadhan

Ramadhan Kareem!

This year, Muslims folks all over the world observe the holy month of Ramadhan as early as June 6th. For those of you who are on the northern hemisphere, fasting hours will be longer in summer. Phew, hopefully the sun won’t be fierce when summer comes soon. Meanwhile us Malaysian folks, we have about 13 to 14 hours of fasting to do everyday for thirty days of Ramadhan.

Doesn’t matter which part of the world you are now, I’m sure dates are a staple during Ramadhan. Nope, not that date, but the super fruit which is power-packed with minerals and vitamins. Natural Society lists down some of the health benefits of eating dates.

Personally, I love blending my smoothies with dates. When I feel like drinking avocado smoothie, I’ll add in 3 to 5 pieces of dried dates. That way, the nutritious smoothie tastes naturally sweet and yummy! While I was pregnant, I loved blending milk and dates and drank it during sahur to help me stay as energized  as possible while fasting.

What about you, how do you have your dates? Happy fasting from Mascaras & Motherhood!
