Sushi certainly is delicious, but what about giving it a non-conventional twist? Change it up by using fruit to make a sweet dessert version of sushi.


  1. Wash the rice. Empty the rice into a large bowl and fill it up with water. Use your hands to wash the rice until the water appears milky white. Then use a strainer to remove the water.
  2. Cook the rice. Add the water, rice, salt, and sugar to a heavy bottomed saucepan and simmer. Lower the heat and continue to cook the rice for 12-15 minutes.
  3. Add coconut milk. Pour some coconut milk into the rice after the rice has soaked up the water.
  4. Allow the rice to cool. Remove the rice from the pot and transfer onto a lined tray to allow it to cool down.
  5. Cut the fruits. Using a knife cut the fruit into long sticks just like sushi fillings are cut.
  6. Spread rice onto plastic wrap. Scoop some of the rice either with your hands or with a spoon into a rectangular shape.
  7. Place the fruit slices. Carefully put the strips of fruit about 2/3 away from the start of the rice.
  8. Roll the sushi. Once you've added all the desired fruits roll the sushi tightly but carefully into a log like shape, making sure it doesn't unravel.
  9. To serve. Place the sushi rolls onto a plate, alongside thinly sliced cantaloupe as pickled ginger and fresh fruit purée as soy sauce. Don't forget to eat with chopsticks!


  • 1 1/2 cup sushi rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fruit (any fruit will do, such as pineapple, kiwi, mango, banana, strawberry, etc.)


  • Make nigiri by shaping the rice into a flattened bowl and placing a thin slice of fruit on top.
  • Have a small bowl of water to dip your hands in when rolling the sushi to prevent sticking.
  • Drizzle some chocolate syrup on top for a creative touch and added sweetness.
  • Get even more of a Japanese feel by eating these with a warm cup of green tea.
  • Feel free to use a sushi mat if you have one on hand.
  • You can use chocolate syrup as a substitute for soy sauce or lime yogurt for wasabi.


  • Do not mix the rice when cooking it before adding the coconut milk, as it may ruin the recipe.
