Sago & Honey Dew Dessert

When I attend chinese wedding banquets, I always looking forward for the last serving as it will be the dessert time. One of the dishes I look forward to is Sago & Honey Dew Dessert which is one of my favourites. This dessert combines the sweet and fragrant taste of fresh honey dew fruit with the sago in a refreshing syrup-based drink. This dessert tastes great if is taken cold and is suitable for kids and adults. Here is the recipes for the dessert. Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup of sago
  • 1 honey dew
  • 1/2 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water
  • 7 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk


Soak sago in 2 cups of water for 30 minutes. Drain off the water and boil sago with 5 cups of water. Boil the sago until turn transparent.

Drain and sieve the cook sago over running cold water to get ride of the starch. Put the cook sago aside.

Cut up the honey dew and remove the seeds. Blend half of the honey dew to make juice. Cut the other half into little cubes.

Mix honey dew juice, coconut milk, sago and the honey dew cubes together. Add the syrup to taste. If you prefer it to be creamier, you may add some vanilla ice cream too.
