Mango, Baobab & Coconut Sago Dessert

          Mango, Baobab & Coconut Sago Dessert

          Need some inspiration for a healthy dish this Chinese New Year? Well, we have just the answer for you! This exotic, fruity bowl of goodness comes from Nikita Leung, a health food blogger from Hong Kong who tells us that this her healthy reinvention of a traditional Chinese dessert.

          Serves 4


          3-4 tsp Aduna Baobab Powder
          3-4 mangoes, pitted

          300ml coconut milk, canned
          1/3 cup sago
          pomelo, chopped
          2-3 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional)


          Soak the sago in water for 15 minutes, then drain. Boil water in a saucepan and add the sago. Cook and stir the sago for 5-10 minutes.

          Turn the heat off, cover the saucepan with a lid and leave to sit for 15-20 minutes. The sago will look translucent when cooked.
          Drain and rinse under cold water. 

          Blend the mangoes (reserving 1 to dice and stir in at the end), baobab, sugar (if using) and coconut milk. 

          Mix the sago, cubed mango and pomelo into the mango-coconut milk puree. 

          Chill in the fridge for an hour.
