Introducing your new favorite:  Fruit Sushi  “Frushi”

Bite sized.  Sticky, sweet rice.  Fresh juicy berries atop melted vegan chocolate, strawberry preserves or, better yet, coconut jam.

Finger.  Licking.  Good.

There are many variations but fruit sushi or “Frushi” is a dessert that is a great party pleaser and tastes better than it looks which was once thought impossible! 🙂  Take advantage of the delicious summer fruit and “Try it”!  Let us know what you think 🙂

***This is a Cool Kid Corner Favorite!!***

(You are viewing my husband’s birthday cake… instead of a typical flour cake, we decided to take a different route and it was worth it!!)

Try it Vegan fresh fruit atop sweet rice … delish’!

Suggested ingredients:

  • 1 can (14 oz) of unsweetened coconut milk (go crazy… buy organic with all ingredients if you can, your taste buds and health will thank you!)
  • 14 oz. water
  • 1 3/4 cups of dry sushi rice (rinse very well first)
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Vegan sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Fresh fruit washed, dried and larger pieces cut to fit  (We used champagne grapes, blackberries, raspberries & strawberries but other fruit makes it incredibly colorful such as kiwi, pineapple, mango and mandarin oranges to name a few)
  • Fruit preserves (we used Strawberry preserves, coconut jam ((SO SO GOOD!  We found this in a specialty store but completely worth the splurge if you can find it!)) and also orange marmalade
  • Vegan chocolate melted (not necessary but for the chocoholics out there like us… you are welcome 😉

What to do:

  • Pour unsweetened coconut milk, water and rice into pot and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to simmer, put a lid on it and let it sit until the rice has absorbed the liquid.  Once absorbed, mix in sugar and salt then fluff with a fork and let cool.
  • Once the rice has cooled, scoop a small amount of rice and roll into an oblong shape and flatten on top (like a Mounds bar, if you are familiar with the shape and size).
  • Spread your choice(s) of preserves atop to act as a “glue” (for my fellow chocoholics, vegan chocolate makes another great choice but hurry and put the fruit on before it dries!)
  • Place fruit of your choice on top.
  • *Option for some, necessity for others… drizzle vegan chocolate atop some (but not all! 🙂
  • Lick fingers clean  Enjoy!

Try it and let us know what you think!
