Sago and passionfruit puddings

At the weekend I like to break from routine, just so it feels special and different to me. It could be going out for a dinner with the girls, missing their lunchtime sleeps (not sure if this is a treat for me) or making a really special dinner that we can all eat together. We decided to have a family dinner last weekend and it was lovely. It’s a real rarity in our house because hubby works late and by the time he gets home the girls are about to get into bed or are already asleep. I saw these some time ago in the shops and thought I’d try and create a new dessert for all of us. Passionfruit are in season and a great price at the moment so I added some to the trolley this week.

Little SS loved this, Miss F wasn’t so sure. Both Hubby and I loved it. This had a beautiful consistency,  creamy and light. The texture of the sago was a real hit with Little SS. If you’re looking to try something a little different, give this a burl. We’ll be making it again.

Preparation time
10 minutes + 1 hour soaking

Cooking time
25 minutes

3/4 cup sago
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
6 passionfruits, pulp removed
1 1/2 tsb brown sugar
1 can lychees
1. Soak the sago in coconut milk and water in a heavy based saucepan for one hour.
2. Meanwhile mix passionfruit pulp and brown sugar in saucepan over a low heat until the sugar dissolves and mixture becomes slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in lychees. Leave to cool completely.
3. Heat the sago mixture and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and let the sago simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sago becomes translucent. Spoon the sago into tumbler glasses, cover with cling film and refrigerate until slightly cold.
4. Spoon the passionfruit mixture on top and serve. Serves 2 toddlers and 2 adults
