Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Sushi Rice ( regular rice will not work)
  • 2 cups (16floz/450ml) Water
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) Coconut Milk
  • 1 ½ tsp of vanilla extract
  • Fruit
  • Mango , pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, raspberries. Choose any fruit you like including banana, orange, peaches, etc

Instructions

  • For the Rice: Using a strainer, rinse the rice to remove the milky coating.
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan combine the rice, 2 cups water, 2 tablespoons sugar, salt. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down low and cook gently for 12-15 minutes.
  • Once the water and absorbed into the rice and it is soft turn off the heat. Add coconut milk and stir. Spread evenly on a lined tray to cool down fast and stop it from continuing to cook
  • For the Fruit: Cut the fruit into sticks or something that resembles a stick :). You want the fruit to be long so it is easy to roll.
  • To make a sushi roll: Lay down a rectangle of cling film (plastic wrap) .
  • Spread out a rectangle of rice. While spreading out the rice it helps to have a little bowl of water to dip your hands in and help the sticky rice spread. Lay your sliced fruit on the rice around ⅔ the way up the rice. Start to roll, use the cling wrap to control the roll and keep it tight. Take your time. Once your sushi is made roll it on its seem so if doesn’t unravel.
  • Change it up and lay down mango on the cling wrap, then lay down rice directly on it. Fill with fruit and roll up.
  • Also you can toss a roll in toasted coconut which works really well with the fruit.
  • Mix it up and get creative, this can be a really fun recipe where everyone can participate.
  • Serve your sushi with sliced cantaloupe for the ginger and fruit puree for the dipping sauce.

Hi Gemma! Love all your videos. Can you please suggest some options for other vegetavles (vegetarian) fillings please. My 14 yr old is a very picky eater and I want some lunch box ideas. Thanks!

Hi Gemma, is it possible to use normal milk for this recipe? I’ve tried many alternatives and didn’t like any (coconut milk included).

Thank you!! 🙂

Hello

This looks FABULOUS . For the cup of coconut milk. I wonder if it is the same kind of milk like those that are sold like Almond or Soy milk or do you use a the coconut milk for cooking, the thicker version.

Thank you

I came across this yesterday at work and after $20 at Sprouts, I whipped up some amazing fruishi. It was a hit. My girlfriend and I, as well as her friends, sat around the table with a chocolate chopsticks and a chocolate dipping sauce and enjoyed it! Thank you!

This fruit sushi looks delicious!!! My kids love sushi and they eat it 4 – 5 times a week! I love making sushi at home with my sushi making tools. I will surely try this beautiful recipe and hope that my kids will love it. Thanks for sharing such an amazing sushi recipe.
