[Bukhari Volume 007, Book 065, Hadith Number 356. Narated By Sad : Allah’s Apostle said, “He who eats seven ‘Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them.“]
This shake is a great and simple way to start your fast in a completely Sunnah way using ingredients recommended in the Qur’an and Sunnah. a recipe perfect for Ramadan as well!
- 7 dates soaked in water over night (each ajwa date has 40 calories x 7 =280 calories)
- 237ml/ 8oz / 1 cup of organic milk (75 calories) or home made nut milk (120 calories)
- Pinch of cinnamon or ginger optional
- Add bananas for more calories, each medium size banana has 105 calories and is great for strengthening the stomach
I usually take the stones out of the dates and put the dates into a cup of water with a lid and leave it in the fridge to soak overnight.
In the morning take the dates out of the water and blend the dates, milk and bananas in a blender or a smoothie maker. The water the dates were soaked in is also deliciously chilled and full of natural sugar to give you that much needed energy, to help you get through the day. Alhamdulillah for the blessing that Allah has given us, ameen.
