Frushi-fruit sushi - All that's Jas

Frushi – fruit sushi

Frushi-fruit-sushij

The other day my captain B. and I had a sweet tooth and nothing sweet in the house (except me of course). My cravings were so intense I was about to settle on a piece of bread with jam but when I opened the fridge and saw the pack of tortilla I got the idea to make the fruit sushifrushi. 

During my mission trip to Haiti, a few years back, tortilla wraps with jam and peanut butter were our daily lunch. Our little mobile medical clinic rode on a bus every morning to a different village; we set up our supplies under a tent and saw patients all day long without a break. There were no bathrooms, not even portable Johns and thank God we didn’t have to go. It was so hot, we were sweating our liquid intake right through and then some.

I got quite fond of the simple lunch and to-date it is still my favorite. It also reminds me of the great group of people I served with and of those less fortunate. A PB&J tortilla wrap makes me more aware of my blessings than this loaded meatloaf deluxe ever could.

I fancied it up by adding fruit and different spreads. Combinations are endless. This frushi satisfied our cravings and it was so fun to eat dipping the pieces in chocolate syrup and strawberry coulis! I halved the recipe for coulis from Smitten Kitchen. What kind of fun food do you like to make?

 

Ingredients:
Makes 15-18 pieces

For Frushi
3 large Flour Tortillas
2 Bananas
5-6 large Strawberries, stems removed
2 tablespoons Peanut or Almond Butter
2 tablespoons Nutella
2 tablespoons Marshmallow Fluff
2 tablespoons Strawberry Jam
2 tablespoons Strawberry Cream Cheese
2 tablespoons Cool Whip
¼ cup Chocolate Syrup

For Strawberry Coulis (optional)
1 cup quartered hulled Strawberries
2 tablespoons Water
1 ½ tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons fresh Lemon Juice

 

Directions:

Frushi 1:
Spread peanut or almond butter followed by jam evenly on one tortilla. Place one peeled banana along the side and roll up jellyroll style. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, twisting the ends.

Frushi 2:
Spread Nutella followed by marshmallow fluff on the second tortilla. Place one peeled banana along the side and roll up jellyroll style. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, twisting the ends.

Frushi 3:
Spread cream cheese followed by cool whip on third tortilla. Place strawberries along the side and roll up jellyroll style. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, twisting the ends.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes, unwrap and slice ¾ to 1-inch thick (you should get 5-6 pieces from one roll).

Strawberry Coulis:
I really need to make Smitten Kitchen’s cream cheese pound cake with this sauce. Sounds and looks divine!

Combine strawberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice in a blender. Purée until very smooth, then press through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Coulis can be prepared one day ahead.

Garnish frushi pieces with berries, chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts or however you desire. Serve with chocolate syrup and/or strawberry coulis as a dipping sauce and chopsticks. Enjoy!

    What a great concept. My daughter won’t try real sushi, but I bet she would not only try these but want to get in on the fun on making them herself.

    These frushis are adorable! It’s funny how the simple things life makes us happy. How amazing that you got to go to Haiti on medical missions. I’m sure you were just as blessed as the people you shared your blessings with.

    What brilliant idea Jas! Love this idea of frushi and relatively healthy compared to other treats for the kids. Are you trained in the medical field as well Jas? Good on you for helping in Haiti!!!

      Thanks, Bobbi! No, other than a medical transcription certificate, I am not trained in that field. Every evening we would spend hours separating pills into little Ziploc bags and mark what they are. The variety wasn’t as big as you can find here. Haitians are mostly in need of vitamins, Iron, folic acid, pedialyte, topical and vaginal ointments and occasional pain pills. The doctors and nurses would write the name of the meds (or the bundle we have made the night before) on a piece of paper and it was pretty easy to hand them out. You quickly develop a system, where you always keep meds in the same order, so you know exactly where they are. One of the nurses who live aboard for a year (sitting down in the picture) was always present as well and would help me if I had questions. She also speaks Haitian French, so that helps a lot 🙂 It was a great and humbling experience! Have a great week! Xo

        Thats great Jas! Such an amazing experience. Helping the people of Haiti after such a stressful event can be very stressful for yourself but also very rewarding. I think they were lucky to have you there. (I just thought that you and I might have had something again in common, right after our love for cooking… LOL) Take good care my dear friend!
