I love this dessert with fresh mango, but when it is out of season, it is also delicious made with passionfruit or banana.

If you have excess fruit puree, it is nice to place a layer on top of the sago before adding the custard mousse.

Adjust sugar and salt to taste. I like a good pinch of salt in the coconut sago and the topping, because it is similar to the flavour of Thai desserts. If that does not appeal to you, then adding a little extra sugar will still be yummy.

    Wow, this recipe was delicious.  For added effect, spoon a tablespoon of the puree (I used mango) on top of the sago before adding the custard mousse and you get a ring of colour around the glass which looks very impressive.  My family thought they were in a restuarant!

    This was a winner at our dinner party last night, a perfect summer desert... I didn't bother separating the passionfruit pulp from the seeds though, which didn't matter. I probably could have stretched it out to 5 or 6 smaller portions if necessary.

    Hi there. I made this and it tasted yummo but the sago was very gluggy. How much water would you cover it with at the start? Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)
