This coconut mango sago is sweet, coconut-ty and refreshing. Let’s make it before the fall weather kicks in!

As a kid growing up in Asia, cold, sweet and soupy desert is something quite common to me. Especially during the hot summer days. I would always run down the street in my shorts and t-shirt to buy either cold green bean soup, shaved ice, or sago soup like this!

If you like boba/bubble tea, then you are going to enjoy this dessert as that it has similar texture.

Although summer has officially ended, I am still quite sad to say goodbye to mango(honestly my favorite fruit of all time in addition to lychee and watermelon). But, I will officially face the reality by sharing this recipe before going into fall and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Let’s learn about the ingredients in this dessert and some of the benefits that it provide and how it effect our body as well as things to look out for specific to your personal condition if it applies.
