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.
