Instead of rice, this raw dessert sushi starts with a sweet mixture of blended banana, Brazil nuts, and coconut. The "sushi rice" bases are then wrapped in nori and topped with fresh fruit to create an adorably creative dessert. Serve these on a platter with a drizzle of fruit syrup, plus a little extra on the side for dipping.
