Fruit Sushi with Pomegranate "Roe"

Fruit Sushi with Pomegranate "Roe"

How gorgeous are these fruit sushi rolls?  These would be perfect in a child’s lunch box or as a filling snack!  They would even be adorable displayed on a platter for dessert 😊

Fruit sushi

Serves: 1

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 0 minutes

What (your ingredients):

1 beet sprouted grain wrap (Angelic Bakehouse)

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 banana

3 tablespoons pomegranate arils

How (your directions):

Spread almond butter onto one side of the wrap.  Place whole banana onto almond butter at the top third of the wrap, then roll wrap until banana is snugly inside the wrap.

Using a sharp serrated knife, cut of the tip ends of the wrap, as they don’t hold together as well.  Then slice the remaining wrap into six even slices.

Top with pomegranate arils.

Enjoy immediately 😊

Why (the science):  Snacks that provide satiety are ones that contain a protein, carb, and healthy fat.  Instead of a boring banana that may not keep you full for long, this snack will keep your energy levels up with the addition of a fiber-rich wrap and protein-rich almond butter!
