As we look forward to the month of Ramadan, we also need to strike the right balance between healthy and tasty when it comes to heavy indulgence. From choosing the right nutrients to knowing when we are going overboard with calories, it is important to maintain a healthy diet. Nutritionist Pooja Makhija shared a lip-smacking recipe of butter rich dates that can be consumed to break the fast. Recipe inside.



Peanut butter

Nuts of your choice

Dark chocolate


Take the dates and cut them open to remove the seeds. Simultaneously, pour a portion of peanut butter into a piping bag and fill the dates with it. Take nuts of your choice and chop them to make smaller portions. Sprinkle the chopped nuts on the peanut butter filled dates. Coat the dates in dark chocolate and refrigerate them overnight. Serve them cold the next day and bite on them and explore the plethora of flavours inside.

Health benefits:

“With the holy month of Ramadan coming soon, this nut butter rich date can be our healthy iftar,” wrote Pooja on her caption. Dates are rich in fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants. They help in improving the brain health and reducing the risk of diseases. Peanut butter, on the other hand, helps in boosting the heart health and managing the blood sugar levels of the body. It also helps in losing weight. Dark chocolate – a powerful source of antioxidants – help in regulating blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart diseases.
