Mango Sago Dessert Recipe #Dessert #MangoSago

I had a great time celebrating a graduation party of my niece, led by people who really love her---her parents and relatives - and most importantly me, who entirely believe when I said she can do it all the way in college.

Usually, her parents love to make a party for every achievements she received in school. And most of their food was presented with some seafoods, pork lechon, pansit, rice, gruel's, caldereta, that makes a Filipino party tons of gustatory or the unmatchable thrill of food tasting.

In my sense, it's gets a little harder all the time to see this usual recipes in the table, but I was stop to see a bowl of mango custard full of chewy sago pearls.

Most of the time, I saw mango float, maja blanca or buko salad as a dessert serve in every party I attended.

And this is very easy to do recipe, and this is perfect for warm weather here in the Philippines.


  • 1/4 cup small sago pearls
  • 3 to 4 tbsps sugar(brown sugar)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cups evaporated milk
  • 6 tbsps coconut cream/milk(optional)
  • 1 cup of mango puree or juice
  • 2 mangoes, sliced in cube

PROCEDURE in cooking the sago pearls:
  1. Soak the pearls in a bowl of water for 30 minutes.
  2. Boil water in a saucepan in add the sago(medium heat), boil for 3-5 minutes, stirring consistently. Then open the lid and let it stand for 30 minutes(turn low heat) until sago is transparent.
  3. Run cold running water on the sago to keep it cool and not to overcooked.
  4. Drain the sago in a colander.
Making the Mango Sago
  1. Dissolve the sugar with water in a saucepan.
  2. Cool the sugar-water mixture before adding the evaporated milk and mango puree. Stir well.
  3. For base consistency, just add water or milk, depending your taste.
  4. Add the mango cubes.
  5. Chill in the refrigerator and serve.
  6. If you want, you can add ice cubes to make a cool and refreshing dessert.

In my cousins case, she did not use coconut cream/milk. For too much of coconut milk or a cream isn't healthy. Here's the sample of her recipe taken from MANGO SAGO DESSERT, where she copied the recipe.
