Delicious and Mindful Middle-Eastern Desserts— 3 Sweets Inspired by Ramadan

All foods certified Halal, can be eaten during Ramadan, including sweets as long as they are enjoyed in moderation. Those practicing Ramadan reach for nutrient-rich foods, and many opt for natural or plant-based ingredients, so they have the energy they need to feel their best in worship.

Ramadan is a full month dedicated towards devotion and exploring gratitude, and it can also embark a month of flavor. Flavor exploration, including new or or unfamiliar flavors, can be exciting to your taste buds and may even help benefit your experience in seeking spiritual growth. Popular flavors for Middle-Eastern foods and desserts include cinnamon, pistachio, fruity and floral flavor combinations like rose and Coconut, and warm comforting flavors like Almond and Butter Vanilla.
