BANANA REMEDY FOR COUGH
To prepare the remedy you will need these ingredients:
2 medium size ripe bananas (it is best if you have those very ripe bananas that are covered with dark dots);
2 tablespoons honey. You can also use sugar but I think that honey is a better alternative. (If you are using honey, be careful not to put it in hot mass because it will lose all its benefits when you expose it to very high temperature), and 400 ml of boiling water
.How to prepare the banana remedy:
Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork or a spoon. Use plastic or wooden spoon because the mash will become dark if it gets in contact with metal. First time I made the remedy I mashed the bananas with a blender and it didn’t turn out well. Therefore stick to a fork. Then pour boiling water over the mashed and cover the bowl. Let it rest and cool down for half an hour. Then add the honey and mix it all well. If you decide to use sugar mix it into the mash before the water. You can strain it before drinking if you want it to look more homogeny but it is not necessary.
How to use the remedy
From these ingredients you will get enough remedy for one day. Divide it in four doses and drink it while is lukewarm. Heat it up a little before you consume it. The next day make another dose. It is very easy to prepare and in a few days you will feel significant relief.
