Looking for a kid-friendly snack that the entire family will enjoy? It is fun to make snacks and meals that are inspired by cultures from around the world, but still appeal to American kids. I don’t know about your kids, but mine were not overly adventurous eaters when they were younger, although they got better as they got older. These Fruit Sushi recipes are a great way to make a Japanese inspired dessert that even picky eaters will enjoy.

Fruit Sushi - Strawberry Rice Sushi with fruit rolls, rice, strawberries and pomegranate - a kid friendly snack

Strawberry Rice Sushi

For this treat I made rice, and then used a strawberry fruit roll as a sushi wrapper.

Adding rice to the fruit roll up for fruit sushi

I spread a little rice on the unrolled fruit roll and added sliced strawberries in the center.

Then I rolled it up and sliced into into rolls.

Rolling the fruit roll up sushi


The whole process wasn’t as hard as I thought it might be.  I have made traditional sushi before, and fruit rolls are much easier to work with than sheets of nori!

Banana Sushi

For the second dessert I made banana sushi by cutting a hole in banana slices.

The only thing difficult about this was finding a small enough knife to cut a hole in the bananas without breaking them.  I ended up using a grapefruit knife, which worked perfectly.

Filling the banana sushi with peanut butter

Then I stuffed the banana slices with either peanut butter or blueberries.

Fruit Sushi - Strawberry Rice rolls and Banana Sushi with pomegranate

I topped off both types of fruit sushi with pomegranate arils, and served it with an easy meal of Japanese Udon noodles with peanut sauce and Washabi Peas.  It is a Japanese influenced meal that even picky eaters will enjoy!
