Banana Sushi

WP_20150707_001

Have you ever make sushi? Every time my uncle visit Puerto Rico we make sushi. For us is very fun the whole process of making the list and the menu, buy the ingredients, cook them, prepare them, serve them and eat them. This Banana Sushi is also super fun to do and it is super delicious. The banana is roll on a crepe and stick with peanut butter. Then, I topped it with pistachios and blueberries. I finally decided to drizzle honey and sprinkle cinnamon (I love cinnamon).

Once I rolled the banana, I cut it as a sushi and garnished it with the toppings.

You may eat it with your hands, sticks or with a fork, but you will not have fun.

You can cook this sushi crepe as an appetizer for a brunch with the family or a “pick me up” desert. This dish is amazing for kids because they will find this interesting, fun and delicious so they will eat a healthy course.
