Raphia’s Favourite Ramadan Treats

Raphia’s Favourite Ramadan Treats

The Raphia team have been comparing and sharing their go to tempting treats that are enjoyed during Ramadan. Of course every country and region has a particular favourite enjoyed by its people. Below you will find our top picks here at Raphia HQ.

1. Dates
While traditionally, the Ramadan fast is broken with dates, we love the intense sweetness of this delicious stone fruit plus it’s a nutritional powerhouse. High in fibre as well as magnesium, potassium and vitamin B-6. For a special treat we serve our dates stuffed with an assortment of fillings from Almonds, Ginger and Lime, Coconut Cashews and even decadent Amber.

2. Chebakia
We can’t resist the crunchy, chewy texture and honey, rosewater and sesame flavour of Chebakia. This is one of the most popular sweets in Morocco as well as an essential for Ramadan. Raphia’s Chebakia is hand-baked and as you may expect from us, authentic. It is the ideal pairing to a fast breaking bowl of harira soup.

3. Sellou
The Moroccan equivalent of an energy bar, Sellou is an essential power-packed nutty confection which is delicious and highly
nutritious. It’s perfect not only to help increase your energy level but to maintain your alertness and focus throughout the day. Hence, we think one of the best things to eat for Suhoor.

4. Briouats
An Iftar favourite are triangular and cylindrical filo pastry briouates. We can’t resist their golden deliciousness. Sweet and filled with crushed almonds, sugar and spices. Raphia’s collection includes sweet lemon and almond, ginger and orange blossom, and a traditional sweet almond filling.

5. Mint Tea
We can’t think of Briouate without pairing with a delicious mint tea. There is something delightfully nostalgic about transporting ones taste buds to the markets of Marrakesh and Raphia’s brew is a wonderful fusion of green and mint tea leaves. It is incredibly refreshing and hydrating, and a caffeine-free treat.
