Mango Sago Dessert

This delicious cold Mango Sago Dessert is one of my kids’ favourite desserts to order when we could dine out during the pre-pandemic days. It is thick and creamy, and made of fresh ripe mangoes. The tiny sago pearls or tapioca pearls add tiny pops of texture that complements the creamy fragrant mangoes perfectly.

I learnt that it is actually very easy to make this dessert using the Thermomix. In addition, it is also reasonably cheap to recreate it at home compared to what you would pay at a restaurant. So here’s sharing homemade mango sago dessert, just the way we like it – thick and yummy!

Course Dessert
Cuisine Chinese


  • Thermomix


  • 450 g mangoes, ripened cubed
  • 50 g coconut milk fresh or packet
  • 200 g evaporated milk
  • 50 g sugar

Sago Pearls

  • 100 g sago pearls rinsed
  • 1000 g water

Garnishing (Topping)

  • mango cubes
  • strawberries, cubed


  • Rinse sago pearls. Put into TM bowl with water. Cook 20mins/100c/Sp 2
  • When done, rinse pearls thoroughly with cold water in a sieve and set aside. Soak in clean water to keep the pearls from sticking together for later use. Refrigerate to keep if using next day. Sieve out water prior to use.

Mango Puree

  • Put all ingredients into the TM bowl. Blend till smooth. 15 secs/Sp 8-9.
  • Add in additional mango cubes, strawberries, sago and mix in with a spatula. Serve cold.


If you prefer a more liquid consistency, you may reduce the amount of mangoes used.  Best use ripened mangoes as the natural sweetness and the fragrance of the mangoes will determined its outcome.  
I sometimes use a mix of mango types to have a balanced taste with sweetness and fragrance.

This dessert is great for parties, or potluck gatherings and as a quick dessert after meals. Using fully ripened mangoes is the key in this dessert as the flavour, taste and colour comes from the mangoes.

This recipe can be adjusted to your preference, by adjusting the quantity of mangoes and /or the evaporated milk to adjust the consistency as desired.

Happy Thermomixing as always!
