When I was doing my grocery last week, I saw a bunch of Thai Honey Mangoes being on sale - S$1 each! I was getting giddy all over because I rarely see mangoes at this price. They're usually 3 for S$5 or 5 for $10. Expensive, I know! And to be honest, the mangoes aren't even close to Philippine mangoes' sweetness! But I discovered the Thai Honey Mangoes have less aftertaste compared to the Thai Rainbow kind. So off I went to get unripe ones and had them kept in the cabinet.
Today, I saw them ripe and very fragrant! So I thought of making one of my favorite desserts, mango sago. It's easy and doesn't need a lot of ingredients to prepare. This dessert is also an easy choice for kids. My tot thought it was ice cream! Haha
|Thai Honey Mango|
- 2 sweet mango
- 1/2 cup of sago pearls
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 3-5 tbsp sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
- Cook the sago pearls as instructed. Drain using a metal strainer and set aside.
- Puree the mangoes. You can puree them using a food processor, a blender/pastry blender, or heck, even just a fork will do!
- Add the milk, cooked sago pearls and sugar. Cool the mixture for about 2-3 hours. I tried putting my mixture in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to have a very thick consistency.
- Serve cold.
