Ramadaniyat 16: The Blessings of Suhoor – A Nutritious Berry Smoothie Recipe

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Eat suhoor for in suhoor there is a blessing.” (Bukhari)

Suhoor is a basic meal in Ramadan and has many health benefits. It provides fasting people with strength and provides the body with energy and vitality necessary during the long day of fasting. Delay the suhoor until shortly before dawn. The time of Suhoor is blessed, full by Allah’s mercy, and Allah answers people’s supplications and prayers.

It is recommended that the Suhoor meal be rich in complex starches like grains, legumes, and vegetables. Complex starches contain a high percentage of fiber that slows the digestion process and makes you feel fuller for a longer period of time and help maintain the level of sugar in the blood.

Avoid foods and beverages that contain high levels of sugars and refined carbohydrates such as white bread, white rice, and pastries. These foods are digested and absorbed quickly, which raise blood sugar levels quickly and then lower it rapidly too, making you feel hungry. And, of course, do not eat foods that make you feel thirsty, such as fried and salty foods, and make sure to drink water in appropriate quantities.



A Healthy and Nutritious Smoothie Recipe for Suhoor – with Strawberries, Pineapple, Mango, and Spinach.



  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)

  • 1 cup of pineapple cut into cubes

  • 1 cup mango cut into cubes

  • 1 banana cut into slices

  • 1 cup or 2 of fresh spinach leaves

  • 1/4 cup of water



Add strawberries, then pineapple, mango, bananas, spinach, and then water to the blender.

Mix ingredients until smooth. Then raise the blender level to high for a minute or two. Add more water if necessary, and eat immediately. Enjoy this healthy drink with your family.
