Have Yourself a Very Healthy Ramadan with Glow's Desserts

This holy month, Glow has decided to come to our rescue by making our favourite desserts, but transforming them into newer and healthier versions of themselves.

Kurt Galalah


Most people, if not all, can agree that an iftar meal would never be complete without a sweet indulgence. Egyptian sweets, which happen to be very popular in Ramadan, are laden with a lot of sugar and fat and can explain the reason you may be putting on weight although you’re fasting. This holy month, Glow has decided to come to our rescue by making our favourite desserts, but transforming them into newer and healthier versions of themselves. Not following? Well, they came through with desserts that are all processed sugar-free. We repeat. Their desserts are sugar free.


Their parfaits are in a league of their own



STRAWBERRY, DATE & MANGO PARFAITS 

Nothing about this parfait is how you usually have it. The konafa is topped with coconut cream and made with all natural fruits. It is also roasted with coconut oil where they then add raw honey to it. Yum.


OM ALI

We don’t know about you but Om Ali is the undisputed kween of Egypt’s desserts, and Glow has made it possible to have a few of them without having to totally cry afterwards. They use local baladi butter with high quality mille feuille pastry and a special mix of coconut milk with oat milk that will instantly send you to Om Ali heaven. 


APRICOT & WALNUT MOUSSES

These are made with traditional unsweetened apricots that are boiled to perfection, and that’s the tea, sis. 


Did you know that their kattayef are baked?


RICE PUDDING 

This pudding is lowkey going to be our best friend because it’s dairy-free and is made with coconut milk and raw honey. 


KATTAYEF 

These kattayef are baked, not fried. Oh, and they’re covered in coconut oil. Enough said. 


BAKLAVA 

These bad boys are roasted in the oven until they’re united with raw honey so you can enjoy it without feeling guilty.
