Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Banana: The best type of banana to use for this recipe is a firm banana, not a ripe soft one. In addition, since the size of bananas can vary, you may get more or less than 15 slices per banana.
Cashew Butter: This can be substituted with another nut butter, such as peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.
Goji Berries + Chia Seeds + Pistachios: These are optional topping ideas but you could use whatever you'd like as a topping. Some other suggestions are shredded coconut, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, or even mini chocolate chips.
Serving Tip: These are best right served immediately after making them.
Serving Size: This recipe will make (1) banana sliced into sushi pieces. Nutritional information is for 1/2 banana or approximately 7 slices which is (1) serving.
