Shaved Ice Mango & Coconut Sago (DF) (V)

Nelly Recipe November

Nothing says Summertime more than the tangy sweetness of sun-kissed, sunshine-state grown mangoes!

This soupy cooling dessert is great for those scorching summer days and has a perfect balance of sweetness, tanginess and texture. An instant summer cooler 🧊🧊❄️

Makes 4 to 6 bowls


  • 2 Mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 400 ml Coconut milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup Sago pearls (aka Tapioca pearls)
  • 150 ml Oat milk (use nut milk for GF version)
  • 3 cups Water
  • 2 cups ice cubes


  1. In a small saucepan, add coconut milk, oat milk and sugar. Bring to a boil and let simmer on low heat for 5 minutes or until sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Set aside and allow to chill completely in fridge.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring to boil 4 cups of water. Add tapioca pearls. Boil for 15 minutes, stirring regularly to avoid clumping, and simmer until pearls turn translucent. Run cool tap water over pearls in a strainer. Let pearls soak in cold water until ready to use.
  3. When ready to eat, place ice cubes into a smoothie blender and blitz till crushed. Add ice, pearls and diced mango to chilled coconut oat milk mixture. Enjoy!

For a non-DF and non-Vegan version add an icy scoop of vanilla ice cream to this dessert for that instant summer chill sensation!
