Fresh Fruit Sushi

1 1/2 cups Sushi Rice ( regular rice will not work)
2 cups Water
3 Tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
(1 cup) 8 oz Coconut Milk
1 ½ tsp of vanilla extract


Mango, pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, raspberries. Choose any fruit you like including banana, orange, peaches, etc


For the Rice: Using a strainer, rinse the rice to remove the milky coating.

1. 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.

2. 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

3. 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.

4. To make a sushi roll: Lay down a rectangle of cling film (plastic wrap) .

5. 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.

6. Change it up and lay down mango on the cling wrap, then lay down rice directly on it. Fill with fruit and roll up.

7. Also you can toss a roll in toasted coconut which works really well with the fruit.

8. Mix it up and get creative, this can be a really fun recipe where everyone can participate.

9. Serve your sushi with sliced cantaloupe for the ginger and fruit puree for the dipping sauce.

Hey Gemma! I was wondering what the title of the song was for the intro of the video? Thanks and I’m trying this recipe out with some friends for sure. 🙂

Adilla Lope says:

can you make a cheese cream

Rosy Li says:

In the beginning, there’s a fruit sushi with green specs in the outside.
What is that?
(I’m sorry if i sound rude, I’m not trying to).

Amra Asa says:

But rice and fruit is good?

Reeses Ballet says:

Dear Gemma Stafford, while fruit is a wonderfully healthy dessert, I am afraid that you forgot to look at the rice. Sushi rice has the highest calorie count of almost tall types of rice and once you have added the sugar and coconut milk the calories are comparable to a Big Mac from McDonalds… Still, Tastes great!! However, it is still a dessert and should be eaten in moderation. (:

I came back here and watched the video again because of David Seymor
he tried making fruit sushi by watching BuzzFeed’s video and the lack of direction made it impossible but then he said he watched your video and it helped a lot, and I was so happy because I love your channel and was thinking he should watch your video you are a great chef and teacher, thanks a lot Gemma for teaching us so well and your great tips and tricks ^_^

A Crybaby from Platform 9 3/4 says:

Instead of rice, can we use coconut with honey for sweetness and stickiness?
