Mango Sago is a popular Asian dessert that is commonly found on menus of many restaurant and dessert stores in various Asian countries.It is said to have originated in Hong Kong but is usually accompanied by pomelo. Over the years, it's popularity spread to other neighboring countries like Singapore, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

It is a very straightforward dessert to make. Like making mango smoothie with the added bonus of sago pearls. Cooking the sago is the only part that requires a bit of work, the rest is easy-peasy.

Speaking of sago pearls. don't you just love them?I do. I am a sucker for anything with these cute little pearls. Can you tell? I even have a tutorial on how to make black tapioca pearls. Also did a small research on the difference of sago to tapioca. Yes, they are not one and the same. Sago is made from a starch extracted from the pith of tropical palm trees. Tapioca pearls, on the other hand, come from cassava starch.

If you love tapioca pearls or sago pearls. like I do, you can find more recipes and articles about it below.

Some recipes mix milk and coconut milk in their Mango Sago. I opted to skip it and make it vegan-friendly. Actually, it was Armin's idea because he loves anything coconut. So he asked me if I can just use coconut milk so he can enjoy both the mangoes and the coconut taste at the same time.

That is one of the perks of living in the tropics. Fresh fruits and coconuts available all-year round. And of course, the sun! We find ourselves contemplating often how we would be all covered up from head to toe right now if we were back in Germany.

  • cup sugar

  • 3 big ripe mangoes - peeled and cut into cubes

  • Reserve about a cup of the mango cubes for later as toppings. Place the remaining in a blender. Add sugar and pulse on high speed until it turns into a smooth puree.

  • Drain water from the cooked sago pearls and transfer in a larger bowl. Add the mango puree and coconut cream and mix with a spoon or spatula until well blended.

  • Divide the mango sago into 6-8 serving bowls and top each with the reserved mango cubes. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

    Hi,
    I made this dessert today. I used canned pineapples. It turned out good but I got 4 ramekins and it's a bit runny. What would you advise. Should I have put it on heat again after having mixed pineapples and coconut milk to the cooked sago?

    Hello Bebs,

    Thank you so much for posting your recipe! Please could you tell me if this pudding is supposed to set like a pannacotta after chilling?

    Thanks and regards,
    Gail

      Hi Gail, it is not a pudding at all. It is more like a thick drink.

        It depends on how much mangoes you want and how strong taste you’d like, perhaps you may one to use around half a mango per person and tomes the serving you’d desire to prepare 🙂
