Collection Of Smoothies 

Navaratri beginnings from October 1st.

Navaratri is a festival dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga. The word Navaratri means nine nights in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshipped.

Many people observe fast these days. . Fasting people abstain from consuming meat, fish, eggs, alcohol, onions, garlic, dishes made with common salt or any kind of spice. Some people live only on milk, fruits and fruit juices for the entire length of fasting. Apart from tea, coffee and milk, sago and potato cooked with rock salt are extremely popular dishes among devotees observing partial fast. Milk products and dry fruits can also be consumed.

Smoothie is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruits and vegetables. It can be nutritious and continent meal replacement. So here is some delicious, filling and power packed smoothies and cooler  for your fasting days. I have combined all the smoothies in one post for your convenience. All are low calorie and some are dairy free.

Dairy free low calorie smoothie. I have posted a papaya smoothie earlier.
This time made it with cucumber and orange.

Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like cucumber decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion, increased energy, and overall lower weight.
And a perfect food for hot summer to prevent dehydration.

Orange is known to have several benefits and is among the most popular fruits around the world.
An excellent source of vitamin C.

This smoothie is little different from other smoothies. You will like its tangy taste.
Its very easy to make.
