Warm apple & cinnamon sago pudding
Paleo Princess: 
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Paleo alternative to warm porridge with a lovely apple and cinnamon flavour throughout.
  • 3 large (or 4 medium) red apples, peeled and grated
  • 3 cups of water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste*
  • 2 x 400ml cans of coconut cream
  • 1 cup sago (sago pearls)
  1. Place the grated apple, water, honey and cinnamon into a saucepan.
  2. Place the saucepan on medium heat and slowly stir continuously until the water starts to boil and froth around the edges of the saucepan.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and use a stick mixer to blend the apple mixture into a puree (if you dont have a stick mixer transfer the mixture into a food processor and blend until smooth).
  4. Return the saucepan and apple puree to the stove, add in the 800ml coconut cream and stir until combined.
  5. Place the saucepan on medium heat, add the sago and stir slowly until the sago becomes translucent (about 20 minutes) - you will need to ensure that you are continuously stirring to ensure that the sago does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
  6. The mixture will slowly thicken as the sago cooks. When the sago is translucent you should have a porridge like consistency*.
* If for whatever reason, you believe that your porridge is not thick enough, you can add two teaspoons of tapioca (arrowroot flour) and stir through whilst the mixture remains on medium heat. Keep in mind if you intend to reheat it to eat later, it will thicken up in the fridge.

* Vanilla paste tastes fantastic in many paleo desserts & it does taste fantastic in this warm paleo dish, but if you don't have any vanilla paste, you can substitute with vanilla essence (or alternatively, leave it out altogether).
