Virgin Mojito Recipe

For a long time, I’ve loved Mocktails. I’ve tried so many over the years and eventually decided to make my own because hey what better way is there to make something the way you like it? So me personally I love a mojito (non-alcoholic of course) that is very minty with just enough lime and ice! I do like all the different kinds such as blueberry, strawberry and pineapple. Lots of people have asked how the mojito was made when…

Date Smoothie

Another great idea using dates is this delicious smoothie made from (of course) dates, banana & peanut butter. It’s so simple to make, yet so good! Just blend all the ingredients below together: 5 Palestinian Medjoul Dates (or any other dates) 1 Banana 2 tbsp of peanut butter Some ice 3/4 cup of almond or semi-skimmed milk This is a great drink for Ramadan or any time of the year really! The ingredients offer a great source of energy, protein, fibre & many more benefits. It's amazing to think that our Prophet Muhammad (saw) was very fond of dates and when we follow his sunnah, we get reward Subhanallah. Make this smoothie with the intention of fulfilling a sunnah and reap double the reward in this blessed month! Let me know your feedback if you've made it! #HFGRecipe #ramadan2018

Nabeeth Recipe

Check out this nutritious, sweet, chilled, Sunnah drink we made at home from Palestinian Medjoul Dates! It’s called Nabeedh & here’s you make it: De-seed & wash 5 Palestinian Medjoul Dates (you can use any dates, but be mindful different dates vary in sweetness) Put the dates into 500ml of water to soak in the fridge in a bottle overnight. The next day, using a sieve just pour it out into a glass & enjoy a sweet, Sunnah drink. The more dates you add, the sweeter it’ll be! Keep it in the fridge as it’s best served chilled😋 The longer it’s kept, the stronger it’ll get but any Nabeedh left over after the third day could get fermented, so it must be disposed of as narrated in various Hadeeth! This drink is not only delicious but a healthy alternative to fizzy/sugar loaded drinks, as only the natural sugars from the dates keep you boosted! You’ll also benefit your body with the well-known antioxidant properties which dates offer. Especially, during Ramadan when we often eat many acidic foods, dates serve a much needed alkalizing remedy for our stomach & digestion in order to keep us healthy! Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates, “Nabeedh would be made for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ & he would drink it on the same day or the next day or the third day & if there was any left he would throw it away, or give orders that it was to be thrown away.” (Ibn Majah) It’s also Sunnah to do the same with raisins but the Prophet ﷺ advised against mixing dates & raisins for Nabeedh. #HFGRecipes #SunnahFood #ramadan2018
