• 1 tsp vanilla extract

3 In a large bowl add the sago, almond milk, coconut sugar, vanilla, cardamom and coconut cream and mix until combined.
4 Add the the food colouring and mix, fold in some of the mangoes. Depending on the consistency, if you like a thin consistency add more milk if you like a more creamy consistency add less milk.
