Here Are 10 Beverages That Will Make You Feel Fuller During Navratri Fasting

Navratri, a nine-day festival dedicated to Maa Durga in which most of the devotees fast for the whole nine days or just two days, is almost here. The thing is, fasting for the whole nine-day period isn’t easy. It requires eating and drinking healthy foods in order to stay nourished and hydrated throughout the festival.

More often than not, devotees opt for pure vegetarian foods and choose items that will keep them healthy and fuller. Likewise, these preferences also show up while choosing Navratri beverages, as they prefer drinks that will help them stay hydrated and energized while fasting.

After all, the benefits of drinking healthy beverages are numerous. For one, they’re easy to consume and can be taken on-the-go. Second, they function as an instant source of energy. Good, yes? With that in mind, let’s take a look at

10 Beverages to Feel Fuller during Navratri Fasting

1. Fresh Lassi

Lassi is a traditional healthy drink that cools down internal systems and aids in digestion and is prepared by adding water or milk, with sugar or spices to curd. Whether you prefer sweet or salty, lassi comes in several variations with different flavors, and rose petals or traditional Indian flavorings are usually added to make the drink more tasty and refreshing.

This yogurt-based frothy drink is filled with plenty of health benefits. For one, it’s rich in calcium and improves bone strength. Second, it’s good for digestion and prevents stomach bloating, making it a good source of probiotics, boosts up immunity, and improves bone strength.

Lassi makes a perfect Navratri drink, as it is tasty, filling and, most importantly, healthy.

2. Orange Lassi

Bring a twist to your regular lassi by adding orange fruit flavors that make it tastier and more refreshing. As the season of mangoes passes into the orange season, why not replace mango with a refreshing orange lassi? Orange lassi is made by blending fresh orange slices, honey, yogurt, and cardamom powder together to make this sweet tasty yogurt drink. Rich in calcium and vitamin C, orange lassi energizes the body, is good for bone strength, is rich in probiotics (thus boosting immunity), and helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

3. Fresh Cold-Pressed Juice

Cold-press juice is made by pressing fresh fruits and vegetables under high pressure with no abrupt cutting or grinding, which maintains the juice’s nutrition. Natural and available fresh, with absolutely no added sugars or preservatives, these juices can be delivered straight to your home or office.

Cold-pressed juices are some of the best drinks for Navratri, as they are healthy and filled with the natural goodness of real fruits and vegetables. Rich in taste, the fresh cold-pressed juice is best for people who are either allergic or can’t consume dairy products.

4. Banana-Honey Smoothie

Bananas, when combined with yogurt, make a healthy and filling combination that can be improved by adding honey. With a banana base, this drink is turned into a delicious smoothie that can be combined with other fruits for extra flavor, making it a good source of energy that’s also good for brain, heart and digestive health.

5. Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie

Strawberry and kiwi smoothies are made by churning peeled kiwis and strawberries with curd and honey. As a blend of healthy ingredients that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins C, E, and A, this smoothie is effective against cancer and a perfect Navratri drink. Even better, its high fiber content helps lower blood pressure levels.

6. Buttermilk

Buttermilk, a byproduct of milk that’s created with the liquid left behind after churning butter from cream, is another healthy drinking option for Navratri with several health benefits. For instance, buttermilk contains all the essential macronutrients with no fat and is rich in calcium, vitamins, riboflavin, probiotics, and several other health-boosting elements.

7. Badam Sharbat

A blend of milk, cardamom, saffron, kewda, a paste made from overnight-soaked almonds, along with an appropriate amount of sugar, create Badam Sharbat, one of the tastiest and healthiest treats one can enjoy while fasting.

Due to the energy and protein from the blended almonds and milk, this drink isn’t just perfect for instant energy boosts that leaves you feeling revitalized for the rest of the day, but also has the added benefit of strengthening bones. Additionally, it’s a good source of calcium and phosphorus, prevents birth defects, improves brain power, and is also good for keeping the glowing and healthy skin.

8. Thandai

Thandai is a traditional Indian drink prepared by adding nut and seed paste and natural flavoring agents to cold milk. Because of these ingredients, thandai is naturally energizing and healthy (and quite tasty)! As for the specific nuts, seeds and flavoring agents used to make thandai, these include almonds, pistachios, watermelon seeds, poppy seeds, fennel seeds, misri, rose petals, saffron, green cardamom, and many others.

9. Fresh Coconut Water

Fresh coconut water is easily available, natural, and makes a great and healthy drink for Navratri fasting. A rich source of natural electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals, coconut water provides an instant energy boost that is free from artificial flavors and preservatives, and barely adds calories to your diet.

10. Mint Shikanji

A perfect drink for feeling refreshed while fasting, mint shikanji combines the tangy flavor of lemon and the freshness of mint to make a perfect combination with lots of health benefits. It’s made by adding fresh mint leaves to regular lemon shikanji, which makes the drink even healthier and refreshing. Mint Shikanji is good for enhancing digestive powers and treating skin, respiratory and oral problems like tooth decay and plaque.
