This was the dessert and end to the rooftop party that I held yesterday. Cold, naturally sweet, hydrating, refreshing!! And, totally drinkable!!!
For the Sago
- 1 cup Sago/Tapioca pearls
In a large non-stick pot, boil 6 cups of water. When the water comes up to a boil, add in the sago and stir with a rubber spatula frequently. Continue boiling for 10 minutes, stirring.
Turn off heat after 10 minutes, place a lid on the pot, and let it sit there for another 10 minutes. When ready, pour and cool in a running bowl of iced water.
Store in some cold water before assembling.
For the Watermelon
- 1 watermelon
- 4 kiwi fruits
Cut watermelon into large chunks and place in a blender. Do not add any water. Blend in batches and then strain watermelon juice through cheesecloth. We do not want the pulp to be part of the dessert.
Peel kiwis and cut into thin quarters.
Using a slotted spoon, add sago to the serving glass/bowl. Pour in the watermelon juice, stir, and garnish with kiwis.
