From all the reviews it seems like pineapple juice is a great cure for coughs.

Pineapple Cough Syrup

This is a real godsend if you have kids who aren’t keen on yucky cough syrup, or if you are just trying to avoid the extra ingredients and side effects of mass produced medications.  The proportions in this recipe are approximate, so you can play with them to suit your taste.  Young children may not want the cayenne, and some adults might appreciate even more than I’ve added.

  • 2 thick slices of fresh pineapple peel removed (but core intact (about two good cups))
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper omit or reduce for children
  • a thumb sized piece of fresh ginger peeled and sliced or rough chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon


  • Give the pineapple a rough chop, including the core, which is not only edible but particularly healthy.
  • Blend everything up in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Use as is, or push the mixture through a mesh strainer to get a smoother syrup.
  • Keep in the refrigerator and take as needed.


Do not give anything with honey to children under 1 year old.
If you have a persistent cough, seek medical attention.
