Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Banana Sushi. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

You can use any type of tortilla that you prefer. I used low carb tortillas from trader joes, but you can use regular, whole wheat, or even gluten free. Opt for a soft tortilla over a tougher one, this will make cutting it much easier.

For the spread you can use almond butter, peanut butter, hazelnut butter or sunflower seed butter and oat butter for nut-free options.

Use a soft and ripe banana over a green banana. This is going to be much sweeter and easier to eat!

I dipped my banana slices in melted chocolate and then dipped them in crushed freeze dried strawberries and finished them off with pistachios. This is totally customizable, so feel free to get creative and use your favorite toppings.
