Pineapple and Sago Dessert

This pineapple and sago dessert is different from usual desserts. My children love it. They love its pearly, slimy texture. I bought a pineapple from the farmer's market. Making this fruit dessert was fun. My son liked the chilled dessert so much.

I made this dessert as a semi-solid. If you want it to be more solid, you can simmer it down to the desired consistency and keeping it in the refrigerator while it sets. Eat it in whatever form you like; it is an awesome dessert. Simple ingredients like sago, pineapple, milk, sugar, and condensed milk are used while making the dessert.
