Mango Sago Pudding

Mango Sago Pudding

Mangoes are in my top favourite fruits of all time. All winter long, I long for Summer. I long for the hot days, warm nights, daylight savings, nectarines, cherries and mangoes. Oh man I love standing over the sink with mango cheek and  juice dripping down my arms and face πŸ˜›

As much as I could live on pure mangoes alone, mixing it up is also a good option. I had never cooked with sago before, so I decided to pop my sago cherry and make this.

I was all confident going in, until a few people on twitter psyched me out about cooking with sago. But I tried to block it out, follow the recipe and go with my gut instinct. Luckily it all went well, and I was left with a very light and refreshing tropical dessert the whole family enjoyed.

    You had me at mango – I am a total mango addict and very sad that the season is starting to come to an end!

    I love sago pudding and it seems to be getting quite a bit of boost in the food industry these days – I love purely with maple syrup… going to have to try this… I just made chia pudding from COTC blog and wow what a great alternative to sago and without the stiring – just setting in fridge… it tasted just as if I was eating sago…

    If I could eat only mango for the rest of my life I don’t think I would be disappointed!

    Hi, for the sago, do you cook it raw with the mango puree or do you cook it separately before adding it in?
