Whilst in Brisbane last month my sister and I had a sago pudding and it was just divine, so of course I had to recreate it.
Sago is a starch taken from the centre of the sago palm stems and is a common ingredient used in Indian dishes. According to “The New Oxford Book of Food Plants,” sago is also known as sabudana has a long history in traditional Indian medicine. It is used in combination with rice to cool the body. The nutritional content of sago is quite low given it is a carbohydrate. So this pudding is great because we are able to mix it with ingredients that offer essential vitamins and nutrients.
Ingredients: Serves 4
- 3/4 cup sago
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 orange, juiced
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup fruit, pureed.
- 4 tbsp protein (optional, recommended)
- In a saucepan add the sago and coconut milk and soak for 30 min.
- Add coconut sugar, cinnamon and orange juice. Stir to combined.
- Over low heat, heat for 15min or until the liquid has absorbed.
- Divide between 4 cups and place in the fridge for 10min.
- Meanwhile blend the fruit you desire and pour over the puddings before serving.
