This Valentines Day, make something special for your loved ones. 🙂
Try my easy fruits and sago pudding recipe.
Since strawberry is in season you can find them in leading grocery stores like SM Hypermarket, Landmark, Rustans and SnR.
In this recipe you can use any fruits you prefer. I’m thinking melon, kiwi and caramelize bananas will do too, so do not limit yourselves with just this two fruits.
I’m a fan of “gata” or coconut milk and I’ve tried mostly all coconut milk in cans sold at supermarkets but none of them have become my favorite, I always ended up buying a freshly squeezed coconut milk in our local wet market.
Since Jolly came out with their coconut milk I just thought I should give it try. Jolly’s coconut milk has a freshness and natural sweetness very near to what I can buy at our local wet market.
2. Boil tapioca and coconut milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat and stir constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar and gelatin.
3. Simmer gently until thickened, 3- 5 minutes , then remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes before stirring in the vanilla extract. Serve either warm or chilled. Topped with mango or strawberry. 🙂
Tomorrow is the big V day, are you going to brave the crowd and the traffic jam to get to the best restaurants in the Metro or you will celebrate it with some special home-cooked meals?
If the latter, here’s some of my best dessert ideas that can help you plan for tomorrow.
Surprise your Valentine with this beauty.
Usually, a parfait is served in a tall glass but you can use any glass you have to make this one. It’s a dessert consisting of layers of whipped cream, fruit and jelly. See the recipe here: http://joybites.com/strawberry-parfait/

How about something fruity? A tart is an open pastry case containing a filling. This one is generally lovely to look at. It’s also kinda easy to make too. See the link for the recipe: http://joybites.com/mango-tart-recipe/
