Banana Sushi

I subscribe to many newsletters relating to nutrition, fitness, etc. One of those newsletter is by a man named Yuri Elkaim.

Recently in his newsletter he shared a recipe for banana sushi!

I thought it was so clever so I decided to give it a try.

Here is what I found:

  • It is scrummy!
  • It is fun to eat!
  • Both kids and hubby LOVED it!
  • It is the perfect dessert!
  • It is a nearly perfect snack! (Just go easy on the chocolate chips.)

  • Slice the bananas into ‘sushi’ rounds!
