Surhoor is that time of day when we know that we need to set ourselves up strong for a day of fasting, but we are tired and don’t have the brain power to come up with nutritionally dense ideas that are super simple to make! That’s all about to change as the lovely Lila Baig has shared her amazing tips for power packed smoothies!

What’s great about smoothies for Suhoor is the simple process and ingredients that you might already have lying around in your kitchen. It’s the perfect healthy and filling way start to your day when fasting in Ramadan.

Most smoothies can be classified into one or two of the following categories

The nutritional value and calorie count of smoothies depend on the choices you make for ingredients. For example, using whole milk instead of low-fat milk adds sugar and calories to the smoothie.

I like to include some of the following ingredients in my Suhoor smoothies.

Chia seeds health benefits include one of the richest plant-based sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, excellent source of fiber, rich in antioxidants, helps you feel fuller longer, good source of protein, and many more!

Peanut butter is popular with people who work out as it contains a good mix of essential nutrients.

Spinach and Kale are rich in antioxidant vitamins, like vitamin A, but kale packs a bigger punch of vitamin C. Kale also boasts more fiber and calcium. Spinach holds its own with higher doses of magnesium, iron, and potassium.3

Coffee is great for boosting your energy levels.

Here are some amazing smoothie recipes, to keep you well hydrated and energised throughout the day in Ramadan.
