Mango sago is a refreshing dessert you’ll want to make all summer long. Made of fresh sweet mangoes, sago or tapioca, milk and cream, it’s easy to make and so good. Perfect in this summer heat!

Wikipedia will tell you that the OG mango sago dessert actually originated from Hong Kong (mango pomelo sago). When it eventually found its way to Philippine kitchens though, it lost the pomelo and became a much simpler dish.
