Layer 5 oz of warm coconut rice onto soy paper, leaving 1 inch space from top and bottom of mat. Layer julienned mangoes, bananas, pineapples and quartered strawberries. Roll from the bottom up and press firmly to seal the end creating a perfect roll. Layer thinly sliced mangoes and strawberries on top of the roll, cover with separate piece of plastic wrap; then wrap firmly with (un-covered plastic) sushi mat to secure sliced fruit. Cut roll in 1 inch wide pieces while keeping the plastic wrap on top. Carefully remove plastic wrap from roll. Place 1 bamboo leaf on long rectangular plate. Transfer finished roll on top of the bamboo leaf (preferably a long or round plate). Top with shaved white and dark chocolate, orange and lime zest and drizzle with fresh mango puree.
