The warm, sticky bowls of rice piled high with fresh fruit could almost stand in for breakfast oatmeal. But the rice is just a bit too sweet for breakfast, thanks to 1 tablespoon of sugar per serving, and the caramel drizzle takes the dish into the realm of dessert. Still, it’s a lighter, more refreshing after dinner treat than most. It’s totally okay to sub in maple syrup or honey for the caramel, or switch up the fruit on top depending on the season. The recipe can be easily doubled if you’re entertaining; it’s fun to set out toppings and let them assemble their bowls themselves.
