Delicious and Simple Banana Sushi

Bananas are definitely loved a whole lot at my house.

We usually stick to using them in our breakfast oatmeal, pancakes, and smoothies. I also use them a lot for baking since mashed banana makes a great egg or oil substitute.

Obviously, we love them for dessert, too. Banana “nice cream” anyone? Over the weekend we decided to try something different after seeing a photo of banana sushi on the internet. (I don’t know who the photo belonged to or I would link to them!)

We had a lot of fun picking out toppings and figuring out the best way to get the peanut butter to stick to the bananas! It’s a messy task. I bet kids would love making these!

We had several toppings to choose from rice crispy cereal to cacao nibs. While I definitely recommend sticking to healthier toppings like chopped pecans, unsweetened shredded coconut, and cacao nibs, sometimes you just need some mini chocolate chips and sprinkles. That’s cool, too!

Delicious and Simple Banana Sushi

  • bananas (less curved bananas are easiest to work with)
  • toppings of choice
    • chopped nuts
    • unsweetened shredded coconut
    • goji berries
    • chia seeds
    • hemp seeds
    • cacao nibs
    • raisins
    • rice crispy cereal
    • vegan sprinkles
    • vegan chocolate chips
  • nut or seed butter of choice
    • peanut butter
    • sunflower seed butter
    • almond butter
    • tahini
    • cashew butter

1. Add nut or seed butter to a shallow dish such as a pie dish or a plate. You have the option here to microwave the nut or seed butter to for about 15-20 seconds to make it a little softer and easier to work with.

2. Spread out toppings on a plate.

3. Holding the banana at both ends, roll banana through the nut or seed butter, generously coating all sides. Use a knife or spoon to spread it if needed.

4. Tap the coated banana through your choice of toppings. You can also use your hands to sprinkle it on instead.

5. Set the banana on a plate and slice.

6. Enjoy!

Note: We made several “rolls” so we ate some and put the rest in a container to freeze. The frozen version makes for a great snack or treat option when you need just a little something sweet.

  • Raise your hand if you love sour cream but you don't love dairy!! 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️
Sour cream belongs on tacos in my opinion and this tofu sour cream is so easy to whip up and tastes kind of perfect as a sub for dairy sour cream. ...
Recipe: 
1 package of tofu (any will do - I usually buy firm)
~ 2 Tbsp Lemon juice
~ 1Tbsp Apple cider or red wine vinegar
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
1. Combine and blend all ingredients into a blender until smooth and creamy. 
NOTE: I like to start with about half of the lemon juice, vinegar, and salt and then blend, taste, and adjust flavors as I go until I get the right sour creamy flavor. 
2. Chill and enjoy!
  • Kinda diggin' this new almond milk sweetened with banana puree. It's like a grown up version of the Nesquik banana milk and I'm here for that.
  • HELLOOO EVERYONE!! 💕
Dang, it's been awhile since I've posted consistently on here. I'd like to change that. To be honest, I struggle with allowing my true personality to show up on here which makes it difficult for me to want to be on here much. I sometimes worry about what others might think of the things I share so I end up not sharing anything! But I don't want to do that. I find joy in being able to help motivate and educate people on taking charge of their own health and eating their dang fruits and veggies. While I do that in my real day to day life, I'd like to bring that work on here a bit too because I generally enjoy the people I connect with on this platform. .
TL;DR - Hello again. Instagram is weird. But I like it anyway and plan to be better about posting consistently about plantbased eating and the evidence behind it and a little bit more about me. ✌💜
  • @thedomramirez and I had some fun making some banana sushi for dessert. 😂😍 Simply cover banana in nut butter and roll in toppings of choice.

We are freezing some for those times we want a sweet snack.

I bet these would be a lot of fun to make with kids, too.

There's no room for single use! Literally, there's NO MORE ROOM on our planet for single use. .
If you have to take on packaging, make sure you are reusing those containers! Just because the product is gone doesn't mean the value is. You not only bought yourself food but also a re-usable container..so get your money's worth! .
Our recycling system is broken but you can be the solution...every day you #reuse and #refill. .

  • No need to complicate healthy eating. Leftovers make lunches a snap. Today's lunch was a bowl of leftover steamed veggies and roasted potatoes with salsa on top. On the side, I had two seaweed brown rice cakes with mashed avocado, hummus, salsa, sauerkraut, and warmed refried beans from a can. Easy and ready in 5 minutes and full of fiber, protein, and micronutrients.
