Once Again, Disney has inspired us to get creative in the Kitchen! Come check out the Mouse dish we’ve recreated this time!
Our virtual tour of Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival has come to a close, but not before we share one last tasty treat that can be found at this year’s festival. When ‘touring’ Japan, we came across Hanami food booth. Check out the menu below.
The most intriguing food on the menu (and the one our kids would choose) is Frushi. “What’s that?” you ask. Well, it’s fruit sushi. The ingredients include: fresh strawberries, pineapple and cantaloupe rolled with coconut rice and garnished with raspberry sauce, toasted coconut, and whipped cream, Yum!
At Home Twist:
We have made candy sushi before, so we were excited to try a healthier sweet version.
Disclaimer: This is our interpretation as we have never tried the original. We did the best we could to replicate the dish based on the pictures we have seen of it.
To make Frushi, you will need:
coconut rice (recipe can be found here )
flake coconut, toasted
raspberry sauce (homemade or store bought)
Spring roll wrapper (this is the ingredient we guessed)
Dip the spring roll wrapper in water for 10 seconds. Place on a clean surface or sushi rolling mat and allow to dry.
Once dry, top with rice all over. Make a line of fruit down the middle.
Roll carefully and tightly. Allow rolls to sit for a bit before cutting. If you’ve made sushi before, then you know the benefits of the bamboo mat, which we did not have, so our rolls were not as tight as they could have been.
Place 2-3 sushi pieces on a plate. Top with toasted coconut and garnish with whipped cream (this step I forgot, oops)
The original laid the sushi on top of the raspberry sauce, we used ours as a dip which the kids enjoyed.
Both kids LOVED Frushi!! Our son mostly ate the filling, but he liked it! Thanks to the TRYit! initiative, we discovered a new treat that we can’t wait to make again.

Simple and Delicious! So who’s going to be making some Frushi at home this weekend?
