Ingredients

  • 2 cups sushi rice cooked per package directions
  • 1 tablespoon cream of coconut
  • 16 soy wrappers
  • 16 fresh strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 1/2 cantaloupe cut into four-inch-long by 1/4-inch-wide rectangles
  • 1/2 pineapple peeled and cored cut into four-inch-long by 1/4-inch-wide rectangles
  • Toasted coconut for garnish
  • Fruit roll-up or fruit leather optional to soy wrappers

Directions

  1. Begin by cooking the sushi rice according to package directions and then let cool slightly. Stir in cream of coconut and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Next, lay out one soy wrapper on a flat surface. Place about 1/4 cup sushi rice on the soy wrapper, pressing with fingers to cover the whole sheet. (Make sure your fingers are wet so it doesn’t stick.)
  3. Place one piece each of pineapple and cantaloupe, and then four pieces of strawberry in the center of the rice-covered sheet.
  4. Starting at one end, fold about 1/3 of the roll-up, then roll the sheet into a cylinder, keeping the fruit in the middle. Seal the soy wrapper by moistening the end and pressing.
  5. Cut into 4 equal pieces. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  6. Garnish with toasted coconut.
