A lovely, refreshing summer dessert. Mango-pomelo sago (楊枝甘露) is a popular Hong Kong dessert. I had it for the first time over a decade ago at dim sum while in HK, and subsequently had it again at the dessert chain Hui Lau San (許留山). Was reminded of this dessert a couple of weeks ago when we had a similar dish at a new Chinese dessert place in North York. It's a really easy dessert that comes together in minutes. I actually opted to use canned kesar mango pulp--super convenient and you just can't beat the colour and flavour of kesars! Made it vegan-friendly by sticking to just coconut milk (traditionally evaporated milk would also be used). Blended the mango pulp and coconut milk--skipped any sweetener as I felt the mango pulp was sweet enough on its own. Mixed in some cooked sago pearls, then stuck it in the fridge to chill. Come serving time, I added some freshly diced ripe mango and small chunks of pomelo. The perfect balance of mango and coconut, and I love the texture of that sago!
