Mango + Coconut sago pudding

The first time I ever had Sago Pudding was when I was at the bestest little vego curry place called Cardamon Pod in Byron Bay earlier this year. I got it pretty much ever night I was there, their version was chocolate and raspberry which was SO GOOD but I decided to change it up a bit and create my own summery version of it.


• 1 cup tapioca pearls

• 3 cups almond milk

• 2 ½ cups coconut milk

• 1/3 cup maple syrup

• 1/3 cup coconut sugar

• 1 tsp sea salt

• 1 tsp vanilla extract


1 firstly you will need to soak the tapioca pearls in 1½ cups of the almond milk for around four hours beforehand

2 once the tapioca has been soaking and absorbed the almond milk, add the coconut milk and remaining almond milk into a pot and bring to the boil

3.  add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and salt and give it a good stir

4.  take the heat down to a simmer and stir constantly for 15-20 minutes until the tapioca mixture thickens and the pearls start to look almost clear, keep an eye out and make sure it doesn’t burn on the bottom

5.  once it has cooled down layer it between freshly cut mango and caramelised coconut chips. Enjoy!
