DIY Frushi

Sushi is one of my favorite treats. The kids have enjoyed a slice or two, but none of them ask for seconds. It’s always been “Mommy’s”.

Then we discovered fruit sushi! It is sushi, only the filler ingredients are fruit. It’s a fun healthy snack!!

The kiddos went biserko! They loved creating their rolls and snacking on the finished product.

Make DIY Frushi

Supplies needed to make your own Frushi:

  • Cooked Rice (1/3 a cup per roll)
  • Banana (1/2 a banana per roll)
  • Colorful Fruit
  • Soaked Chia Seeds (optional)
  • Plastic wrap (affiliate)

Mash the cooked rice with the banana and the chia seeds.  

Lay out the plastic wrap and spread the rice mixture on top of the plastic. You will want the rice to be roughly the depth of the tip of your pinky finger.

Try to spread the rice in a rectangle shape.

Layer fruits in a neat, tight row on one side of your rice rectangle.  

We have used apples, strawberries, peaches, cantaloupe, blackberries, pineapple, we’ve even snuck in a couple slices of avocado and fresh spinach in the past. There are so many tasty variations!!

Pull one side of the plastic wrap up and gently roll the frushi together.

Stick the roll into the freezer for two hours to help solidify the rice.

Happy snacking!

Leave a comment: What are some of your children’s favorite healthy snacks to eat/make? 


  1. Do you think I could use pear sauce or applesauce in place of bananas? I have some kids with allergies to bananas.

  2. How much soaked chia and what do you soak it in?

  3. Would oatmeal work in place of the rice? That would be so good and you could serve it drizzled with honey, yum!

  4. Looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it!

  5. Hi there! I make sushi a lot (regular kind w/ soy or seaweed paper) and I was wondering, how exactly you get this fruishi to stay together when cutting it, since this doesn’t have an ‘outside wrapper’? After you freeze it, do you unroll it from the cling wrap and it easily slices? Or do you cut while still in the wrap, and peel each individually.
