Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come when you will be introduced to the latest, most amazing phenomenon in culinary history to date: Dessert sushi.
You read right. Dessert sushi is the newest, coolest food trend since regular sushi – it looks like sushi but tastes like cake, and it’s fun to make, serve and eat. This recipe for Key Lime Dessert Sushi is one great example.
When it comes to food, my two favorite things are sushi and dessert. So when I discovered this gastronomic milestone, you better believe I was intrigued. What really sealed the deal was how, unlike regular sushi, dessert sushi is a cinch to make in your own kitchen. All it takes are a handful of simple ingredients and just a few hours (most of which can be spent drooling over impending dessert sushi) and you’ve got the latest and greatest food trend on your home table.
Dessert sushi is, in many ways, just like a miniature jelly or cake roll. So for those of you who love cake rolls but don’t want to eat a whole slice, this is great way to have your favorite dessert in bite-size form. Plus, their cuteness is pretty hard to resist.
This recipe is extremely versatile, too. Not a fan of tangy key limes? Swap the juice with lemon or orange instead. Or, mix things up with lemon filling and blueberries on top, or strawberry jam filling with slices of kiwi on top – there are endless options! Serve it with a side of “soy” sauce (a.k.a., warm chocolate dipping sauce) for extra flavor and fun presentation.
Top off your next dinner with the cutting edge in food trends: A little dessert, sushi-style.
