Banana Sushi

No this amazing idea of banana sushi did not originate in my brain. I saw a link on the Fitfluential Facebook page which lead me to Greatist which lead me to the blog The Healthy Family and Home.

The idea originated here…I just made it my own :)

What rocks about this snack is that you can customize it however you like! All you need is a nut/seed butter and some toppings such as more nuts, seeds, dried fruit, etc.

What did I use? [Maranatha Dark Chocolate Almond Butter|] and my Homemade Maple Sea Salt Pistachio Butter.

For my toppings I used [pistachio nuts|] and [chia seeds|] (love the green color from the pistachios) and [dried coconut|]. Your options for toppings are absolutely endless.

I personally like to eat these frozen and with a cup of warm tea. They are an AMAZING afternoon pick me up. The perfect size, perfect flavor. #BestSnackEver if you ask me.

Banana Sushi is going to be my go-to snack of 2014.

Banana Sushi



  1. 1. First peel your banana, place on a baking sheet, and evenly spread on nut butter, covering just the top half of your banana.
  2. 2. Then, sprinkle on toppings and press them lightly into the nut butter to ensure they will stick.
  3. 3. Using a sharp knife, evenly slice banana. Place banana into the freezer and freeze for about an hour. After an hour, transfer to a tupperware (this is so the banana doesn't freeze to the baking sheet).
  4. 4. Store banana sushi in freezer.

    Hi, doesn’t the banana turn brown within a short time? Nice to eat right away but not suitable for a birthdayparty or something like that I quess.

    Hi, this recipe looks great! I can’t wait to try it out! I was wondering if I could use it on a blog post I am writing about healthy peanut-free snacks. I would only be using a photo and will link back to this post for the recipe.
