Hopewood sago Christmas pudding

Hopewood sago Christmas pudding

It wouldn’t be Christmas without pudding. You might be wondering what sago is and why it’s used in this scrumptious recipe. Sago is an edible starch extracted from the pith of an array of palm trees and a staple food in places like Papua New Guinea. It contains antioxidants and is a good source of resistant starch which passes through your digestive tract undigested – definitely a healthy alternative to a traditional Christmas pudding – and it’s absolutely deliscious!

Your family and friends will be sure to enjoy this recipe-
