Frushi is fruit sushi. It is a bonafide breakfast dessert but it is welcome any time of the day.
You can dip it in yogurt, a fruit sauce, or eat it plain. You can roll it or shape it. You are only limited by your own imagination as to what types of fruit you want to use. Here is the basic recipe for the rice.Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups water
1 cup uncooked sushi rice or other short-grain rice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light coconut milk
Dash of salt


Bring water and rice to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until water is almost absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 15 minutes.

Place rice in a large bowl. Add sugar, coconut milk, and salt, stirring gently until well combined. Cover and let stand 20 minutes.

Lightly coat hands with cooking spray. Divide rice mixture into 20 equal portions, shaping each into a ball (about 1 rounded tablespoon each). Lightly press each rice ball into an oval between palms; place ovals on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Top each oval with fruit. To make a roll, place the rice on wax paper in a rectangle of about 7 inches by 5 inches. Add the fruit filling across the length, roll up and slice. Cover and chill frushi until ready to serve.
