SRI LANKAN SAGO DRINK (SAGO SEEDS/TAPIOCA PEARLS) VEGAN OPTION

Vegans will love this recipe! Just add coconut milk for a refreshing and satisfying drink. Spiced with Cinnamon, Cloves, Cardamom & Vanilla, this is as exotic as it gets.
Genuine sago (‘Sabudana’ in India) is a little expensive and are not easily available everywhere. Ethnic stores carry it but labeling information give no information to indicate if it is sourced from the sago palm or if it’s just tapioca pearls disguised as sago.

Nevertheless, sago & tapioca pearls have the same look, taste and texture, so it is extremely hard to distinguish one from the other. Tapioca pearls are much cheaper and freely available in North American grocery stores. It makes for the ideal and economical substitute to sago.
