Recipe : Mango Sago Pudding

Featuring Our Summertime Jam

When was the last time you had Sago Pudding? Is it just me or does sago pudding have a real "Nanna" vibe to it? I certainly have fond memories of enjoying a great big bowl of sago pudding with my Nanna as a child. But I do remember it feeling a little bland and the consistency is so well, consistent that I would quickly become pretty uninterested in my giant bowl of puddingy goodness and opt out of finishing the whole bowl. So, this little number I created today is a little reinvention of a classic.

Mango + sago just seem to pair so perfectly well together. That's why I instantly knew that the Summertime Jam was definitely the jam for this job. I used a double-walled coffee glass as the bowl because it's smaller and see-through, so it makes the experience a little more interesting. Particularly when you add a generous dollop of the jam on the bottom & inside wall of the glass. Then I added chilled sago to the jar & topped it with mango, then more Summertime Jam & finished it off with a sprinkling of desiccated coconut. You can use either warm sago pudding or chilled, whichever you prefer. Hot Tip when making Sago Pudding: make sure you soak the sago pearls for at least 30 minutes BEFORE you put it on the stove. This will save you precious time from having to stand over the stovetop stirring, stirring, stirring like there's no tomorrow. By pre-soaking, you should be able to save yourself a lot of time. But don't let the soaking fool you, truth be told Sago Pudding is NOT a dish that you should expect to whip up at the last minute. Slow & steady wins the race with this one. But never fear, you won't have to stand there stirring your life away the entire time, you just have to make sure you're stirring intermittently, enough to ensure it doesn't burn on the bottom of the pan!

mango sago pudding


  • 1/2 Sago Pearls

  • 3 Cups of Milk (your choice of milk)

  • 1/2 Cup of Sugar

  • Pinch of Salt

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence

  • Jam & Fresh Fruit to serve


  • Soak Sago Pearls in milk for at least 30mins.

  • Once soaked, simmer in a saucepan on a low-heat, be sure to stir intermittently.

  • Gradually add sugar and salt, while stirring.

  • In a seperate bowl, whisk the eggs

  • Once the mixture has started to thicken up (approx 20mins), spoon out a large dollop of the mixture into your bowl of eggs. Gently stir until completely mixed through.

  • Add your egg mixture to the pan. (By adding a dollop to your egg first, will ensure your mixture doesn't go lumpy.)

  • Stir in Vanilla Essence

  • Continue to stir for several minutes, until you reach a real pudding consistency.

  • Allow to cool for at least 10-15minutes.

Serve up in a small bowl together with jam and fresh fruit. Our preferred pairing is with our Summertime Jam, fresh mango and coconut.
