Sago pearls are not just for boba tea!!
Guavas in your dessert
With a floral and fruity aroma, guavas easily incorporate themselves in both sweet or spicy combinations. We have the guavas in a few different combinations on this blog so far
Each one as unique as it is brings out the best in the guava.
Today’s dessert, sago guava pudding works well with both red or white-fleshed guavas. It works well with ripe or overripe guavas too. Now that means none of the overripe guavas gets binned. The sweetness in the Sago guava pudding dessert can be controlled by the amount of syrup your want to incorporate in this dessert.
Enjoy the dessert as I reconnect with some of my long lost Filipino friends.
