banana frushi
A few weeks back, a friend posted a picture of some fru-shi on her Facebook page. Fru-shi is fruit sushi and I have seen a few different versions. Some of them are very intricate and look like a fancy dessert, but the version I’m going to share with you is a quick snack that you can throw together in minutes when your kids need a healthy pick-me-up.
What You Need For One Fru-shi Roll:

  • One banana
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter, or prepared peanut butter powder
  • 1 flour torilla
  • 6 raisins (or other dried fruit)
  • Honey

What To Do:

  1. First, microwave your tortilla for about 10-15 seconds to soften it.
  2. Then, spread your peanut butter or prepared peanut butter powder all over the tortilla
  3. Place the banana at one end of the tortilla, and then roll it up inside the tortilla.
  4. Cut your rolled up banana roll into 6 equal pieces.
  5. Turn each piece banana side up and place one raisin, or one piece of dried fruit on top.
  6. If you want to make it a bit sweeter, drizzle a little honey one top of each piece.

That’s it! You have a healthy snack that takes about 5 minutes to make, will fill your kids up and will give them energy to play all day long.
If you want to give your fru-shi a nutritional boost, you can try adding a few ingredients.
When I made mine I used peanut butter powder. The directions say to mix 2 Tbsp of powder with 1 Tbsp of water. To give my mixture some added protein and antioxidant power, I mixed in about 1/2 Tbsp of hemp protein powder and a 1/2 Tbsp of chia seeds.
If you don’t have hemp protein powder any other protein powder will work in it’s place. I just find the flavor of the hemp protein blends well with the peanut butter. After adding the extra powder, you’ll have to add a bit more water. Just add water in slowly until you get the desired consistency.
