Description

Mango sago is a popular Asian dessert that’s creamy, fruity, cold tapioca pudding dessert is easy to make at home with just a few simple ingredients.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup mini white tapioca pearls (known as sago), uncooked
  • 3 ripe yellow mangoes, such as Ataulfo mangos
  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk (about 1.5 cups)
  • 2-3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (to taste)

Instructions

Cook the tapioca pearls:

  1. In a medium saucepan, add 6 cups of water and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add tapioca pearls and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent from sticking to the bottom of the pan. The pearls will turn translucent, but at this point, you might still see a tiny white dot in each pearl.
  3. Turn off the heat and let the pearls rest in the hot water until all the tapioca pearls become completely transparent, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Rinse the pearls under running water to cool off and drain in a fine mesh sieve or colander. Set aside.

Prepare the mango sago:

  1. Slice each mango in half away from the pit and use a large spoon to scoop out the flesh. Set aside 1/4 cup flesh (about half a mango) and dice into cubes to use as a topping.
  2. Add mango, coconut milk, and condensed milk in a blender. If you like your sago cold, add 3-4 ice cubes in the blender. Blend until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Divide the mango mixture into bowls. Stir in tapioca pearls and top with cubed mango.

Notes

How to store: Mango sago is best served fresh. Keep any leftover mango sago refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Make it vegan: To make vegan mango sago, omit the sweetened condensed milk and add sugar to taste instead.
