Dairy Free Sugar Free Beetroot Smoothie

Ramadan Mubarak

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.

You don’t need to add sugar in it. You can add black salt or rock salt and black pepper powder if you like. I didn’t.

Recipe 


Seedless beetroot – 1 cup cubed

Cucumber – 1 medium

Lemon – 1

Grated ginger – 1/2 teaspoon

Cinnamon powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Flax seed powder – 1 teaspoon
Ice cubes as required
Lemon wedge for garnishing

Method 


Boil the whole beetroot with skin in a pressure cooker.

Let it cool down. Peel and chop the beetroot into small pieces.

Peel and grate or chop the Cucumber. Make small pieces for easy blending.

Combine every ingredients with juice of 1 lemon. You can add some ice cubes too.

Blend until smooth and frothy.

You don’t need to add sugar in it.

Taste and add more lemon juice if require. You can add black salt or rock salt and black pepper powder if you like. I didn’t.

If you don’t like cinnamon, you can omit it. Add few mint leaves instead of cinnamon.

Place some ice cubes in the glass. Pour the mixture over it.

Garnish with lemon wedge. Serve chilled.

Stay happy stay healthy.

Wish you all a very happy and blessed Ramadan!!
