When it comes to food, some ingredients were just built to be together: peanut butter and chocolate, bread and butter, chips and salsa, buko and pandan, and more! The list goes on and on. There is, however, a dessert combination that we (and more other Filipinos out there!) cannot get enough of: mango and sago! These two simple ingredients can be combined together in different kinds of desserts and in different ways, too. Here are some of our favorite recipes! You need to give them a go—they're super easy to make!
