Mangoes are one of my most favourite fruits. Paired with sago, this is a lovely Summery dessert.

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 😛

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.

1. Place ½ cup sago, 2 cups mango puree, 1 cup coconut milk, 1 cup water, finely grated zest of 1 lime and ¼ cup brown sugar in a large saucepan on medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolved. Bring to boil.

2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 mins, until sago is soft and translucent. Cool slightly.

3. Spoon into 4 serving glasses.

4. Top with sliced mango, yoghurt and a sprinkle of brown sugar.

Serves 4.

    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?
