Rêveuse Recipe: Coconut Sago Dessert

Rêveuse Recipe: Coconut Sago Dessert

Whenever we go to eat Dim Sum in Chinatown, sometimes if we want that something sweet we'll order coconut sago. Originally from Thailand and Burma, this dessert is refreshing to eat during the summer and accompanies the greasy, yet utterly delicious dim sum bites well. Surprisingly, we found this to be super easy to make and can easily be made ahead of time and just left to sit in the fridge until ready to eat. The tapioca pearls can also be found in most Asian groceries, and a quick google search led me to realise you can also get it from whole foods online! Sago can also be added to other asian desserts such as green mung bean soup and mango sago pudding which we would love to try soon! 

1 cup tapioca pearls
1 cup milk
1 can / 400ml coconut milk
4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
1 large tablespoon of honey

SERVES: Approx 8 bowls
DURATION: 30mins

First make the sugar water syrup by melting the sugar in the water before setting aside to cool.

In another medium sized saucepan filled with water, boil the tapioca pearls until the pearls are fully transparent. This will depend on your particular pearls. For ours, we boiled it for about 20 minutes before taking it off the heat and leaving it in the water for a further 5 minutes or so. Make sure to not overcook the pearls.

Drain the pearls with cold water and make sure it is cool before adding it to the sugar water syrup. Add in the milk and coconut milk and leave in the fridge until it is cold enough to enjoy! You can also eat it with slices of mango or melon balls!
