Chinese Pear & Honey Sweet Tonic

For the past 1 week, old kid and young kids all fall sick except Mummy still staying strong, hopefully the flu bug stay far away from ME!!!!. The kids have been running fever for 1 full week! This week my boy finally back to school after absent from school for whole of last week. But on and off they are still coughing and having running nose...sigh hope they will fully recover soon!

My boy does not really like to drink water unlike my younger daughter. So I've to think of ways to make him drink more!! Besides cooking green beans soup for them, I try this tonic recipe from Cuisine Paradise, which is well accepted by the kids :D

Recipe adapted from Cuisine Paradise


  • 2 medium chinese pears, 雪梨
  • 4 red dates, 红枣
  • 1/2 tablespoon Gou Qizi,枸杞子
  • 10g soaked white fungus,白木耳
  • 1 tbsp Sweet & Bitter Almond,南北杏
  • 6 strand Of Shan Shen,沙参
  • 900ml Of Water
  • 2 tbsp honey

  1. Wash all the herbs and bring the 900ml of water to boil.
  2. Peel and core pears then cut each into quarters and put into the double boiler pot.
  3. When the water begins to boil, add in all the herbs and white fungus (except honey and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Next pour the herbs ingredients into the pot that contains the pears and let it double boiled in a slower cooker for about 2 hrs.
  5. Remove about two tablespoon of the soup and let it cool slightly before stirring in the honey and mix well.
  6. Pour the honey mixture back into the soup mixture and continue to double boil for another 1 hour.
  7. Switch off the heat, allow to cool slightly and serve either warm or cold.
  8. Alternately, you can add in the honey before drinking the soup instead of adding it to double-boil.
