recipe: peanut butter and banana sushi

We recently went out to eat Sushi and I saw my son just amazed how the sushi rolls looked like a caterpillar.  He was so intrigued, although not intrigued enough to try a roll.  I don’t blame him, it took me 26 years to get the guts to eat sushi and now I love it 🙂  He kept on talking about how the caterpillar was so cool and he wanted to eat it so I decided to put my mommy hat on and create a recipe that he would enjoy eating something that looks like a caterpillar but also make it healthy.  I thought to myself what are some common things kids love to eat?  Bananas and peanut butter!

Peanut Butter and Banana Caterpillar Sushi

Using those ingredients I created a peanut butter and banana sushi roll and and it was a huge hit.  The excitement to eat it on top of the yummy taste he could not get enough of it.   I actually made this with another Chai Momma and we both decided it’s a great idea for adults too!  It’s very simple that even your kids can make!  I had two two year old kids and a four year old put the whole thing together!
