Mango Bango is a refreshing and delicious Filipino dessert made with mangoes, sago pearls, nata de coco, and evaporated milk. It is a popular summer treat and is often served cold.


  • 1 cup dried sago pearls
  • 4 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk
  • 1 can (370 ml) evaporated milk
  • 2 cups water
  • Sugar (optional, to taste)


Step 1: Prepare the sago pearls

Sago pearls are made from the starch of the sago palm tree. They are small, white beads that have a chewy texture. To prepare the sago pearls, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the sago pearls and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until they are translucent. Drain the sago pearls and rinse them with cold water. Set the sago pearls aside to cool.

Step 2: Combine the ingredients

In a large bowl, combine the diced mangoes, cooked sago pearls, nata de coco, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Stir until well combined. Taste the mixture and add sugar if desired, depending on your sweetness preference.

Step 3: Chill and serve

Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mango bango for at least 2 hours, or until chilled. Serve cold.


  • For a richer flavor, use coconut milk instead of evaporated milk. Coconut milk will give the mango bango a more tropical flavor.
  • For a more tropical flavor, add a splash of coconut extract to the mixture. Coconut extract will add a subtle coconut flavor to the mango bango.
  • For a garnish, top the mango bango with fresh fruit, such as pineapple or strawberries. Fresh fruit will add a touch of sweetness and color to the mango bango.
