Mango Pomelo Sago – 杨枝甘露

Most people should have heard of this classic Hong Kong dessert. Rich flavours from mangos form the base of this dessert. That combined with the citrusy notes from pomelos makes it surprisingly refreshing.

The addition of sago and evaporated milk gives it a really smooth and creamy texture.
