Vegan Chilled Mango Sago Cream with Pomelo 楊枝甘露

Vegan Chilled Mango Sago Cream with Pomelo 楊枝甘露


Chaunsa: is the variety of mango from Pakistan, I strongly recommended to you today!

Chaunsa is widely regarded as the best mango in terms of its rich aroma, sweet taste, juicy pulp and high nutritional value.


The season for Chaunsa in Pakistan normally starts at the beginning of June and ends in the third week of August. Due to demand, it is heavily exported to the Middle East, Europe, and the USA. But in England, it’s only available from mid-June to end of July every year.

This mango is juicy, tasty, sugary sweet and smells wonderful. It can compare to the Philippines’s mango 呂宋芒果.


Originally, this dessert introduced from Hong Kong more than 20 years ago. It’s still so popular there.

For this recipe, I use the coconut milk to substitute the evaporated milk. Mango, the sago, and the pomelo are the main ingredients here. Try not to use too much sugar, because the mango that I used is so sweet. So, the sweetness depends on your mango.


Follow the steps to cook the sago. And cool in the fridge. When the mango puree is ready, mix with the sago. Then serve with the shredded pomelo and cubed mangoes on top. Enjoy this delicious dessert in the summer!
