Monk's Fruit



The other day my aunty asked me to cook some Monk's Fruit drink & store in the fridge. She says it's good for my skin & act as an antioxidant ! also to get rid of our daily toxic! oh well...

I search from Wikipedia for a while... ha! I should have boil this AGES ago!!!! bcuz it can remove phlegm!!! Hate it!!! I have bad coughing since LAST MONTH =p hahahah, now much better already la...

History from Wikipedia
The fruit can act as a remedy for sun stroke, wet the lungs, remove phlegm, stop cough and aid constipation.

Recent research on luohan guo suggests that the mogroside works as an antioxidant and that it helps to prevent cancer.

The use of luohan guo as a remedy for diabetes and overweight has been mentioned, as it can be used as a substitute for sugar.


Method
1 Monk's fruit
1.8 litre water

( the followings are OPTIONAL ITEMS)
some dried longan
1 large soaked white fungus
dried winter melon sticks
some rock sugars

A. Clean & Crack the fruit, break into pieces & put into the water.
B. Put everything & boil for 1.5 hours.

* Note, the fruit itself already sweet, so dont really have to put much sugar*
