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.

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.
