3 Bite Sized "Sushi" Inspired Snacks (Fish Not Included)

By Isadora Baum

Sushi doesn't always require fish and rice, here. With these recipes, you can still enjoy the hands-free rolls but with a sweeter (or crunchier!) note.

Of course, this isn't to say you should give up traditional sushi, as it's packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids and protein from the fish. (And, even as a fish and avocado bowl, you can still reap those benefits.) But it's worth changing things up every once and while and finding new ways to still get your "sushi" fix.

And, here are three delicious and fun ways to eat sushi anytime of the day: snack, breakfast, or dessert, included. (Unless you wake up craving ahi tuna toast, of course.)

Frushi

Craving something fruity? Frushi makes for a light, tasty snack that's also super kid-friendly. And, it's really easy to make.

All you need are store-bought fruit roll ups (for the wrap), cooked sushi rice, and then any other fruit you'd like to use for the filling. You can choose pineapple, mango, berries, kiwi, or more. (Here are a few nutritional benefits of fruit.)

It's really fun to play around and mix this recipe up, where each roll can have different pieces of fruit, too. Mango is a great filling option!

Raw Zucchini Sushi Rolls

No need for fish when it comes to cucumber wraps (though fish and cucumber do taste great together!). For a vegan sushi roll that's light and refreshing, thanks to the cucumber, these rolls are low in calories and high in nutrients.

What's more, cucumber is high in water content, so it's ideal for banishing bloat and keeping the body hydrated. And, in this recipe, you can fill the sushi with avocado and cashew cream sauce, as well as more veggies, like carrots, for extra antioxidants and vitamins.

Strawberry Banana Sushi Rolls

These wraps are healthy and sweet, and they make for a fun recipe that's a perfect snack and/or great for kids! (Try this peanut butter banana roll up, too.)

What's more, they are even packed with protein, thanks to the Greek yogurt and peanut butter. (If you don't like peanut, you can always try a different nut butter, too, like almond or hazelnut.)
