Eid-ul-Fitr 2020 is right around the corner and, just like you, we can’t help but think about how vastly different this Eid will be in comparison to the previous ones. With the current global pandemic, the outdoor activities have been brought down to minimum. But that does not mean that this Eid-ul-Fitr cannot be one of merriment and joy.

With a little more time in hand, that time can be put to good use; especially, if it’s to whip up some mouth-watering desserts. No occasion is complete without a little sweetness, hence we present to you 3 delectable, healthy desserts that will add sparkle to your Eid feast without compromising those hard-earned fitness goals.
