5 Easy Fruit Drinks For Iftar
1. Mixed Fruit Drink
Fruits are very essential because they are rich in vitamins and minerals. This drink is one of my favorites because you tend to feel the taste of several fruits at the same time in an extraordinary way. It is one of the easy Ramadan drinks everyone should try.
If you have some fruits and you think making fruit salad may take up your time, then this is the perfect drink for you. Wash and cut your fruits, blend them, sieve, and add sugar to taste, and your mixed fruit drink is ready.

2. Watermelon Juice
This is one of my favorites to make; it fills in for the perfect hydration process. The fruits used are rich in vitamins and minerals that are very good for the immune system.
All you need is watermelon, cucumber, ginger and lemon, and a bottle of soda water. Wash your fruits properly then slice your fruits in a bowl, you may decide to blend or grate manually, either way, the juice can be extracted. After that, you sieve into a clean bowl and add your soda water and any flavour of your choice.
Get it chilled and enjoy it for iftar.
3. Ginger Juice
Ginger juice is a delicious juice recipe that is prepared with ginger, carrots, and lemon juice. The spark of the sweet yet spicy flavor is what makes it stand out. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, which makes it suitable for the system.
Firstly, wash the carrots and chop then peel your fresh ginger; place into a blender and squeeze the lemon into the blender and add some water.
Then, blend all ingredients and sieve. Add sugar to taste and serve it right next to that amazing dish.
4. Banana Milk Shake
This is a recipe everyone will love to try out for iftar. All you need is vanilla ice cream, frozen bananas, liquid milk, and powdered cinnamon.
Add a few scoops of the vanilla ice cream into a blender then add your frozen banana; add some liquid milk and a teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
