Dinner party dessert... please help!

I'm returning to the HC board for more dinner party dessert input (as last time the CH advise I received resulted in a resounding hit). We're hosting a dinner party tomorrow night but as it's gotten quite hot in LA recently (and my charming apartment lacks an air conditioner) we've decided on a menu of asian inspired small plates (shrimp summer rolls, bbq duck salad, sea urchin and scallop brown rice dish). What kind of dessert should I serve with this? I'd prefer something that doesn't make 15 servings or require all day assembly but I'm open to any ideas. Other limitations: I don't own an ice cream maker or a tart pan. Otherwise I'm pretty well equipped. I was thinking something lemon or ginger or maybe strawberry shortcake with mint in the berries. I also like the look of this recipe but am worried it's a little too out there:

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
