This super easy Cashew Butter Banana Sushi recipe is a take-off of my original Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices recipe I posted a couple of years ago.
They are a favorite at our house and we make them all the time.
The first version we made two years ago back in 2013 were bananas with peanut butter and hemp seeds.
It’s a snack I created for my boy’s that they named “banana sushi” because after I cut them into bite-sized pieces, they looked like sushi!
I made another variation earlier this year, my Banana Sushi with Sweet Tahini and Matcha Spread recipe and they are really good – especially frozen.
But the reason I like these is because I used cashew butter (my favorite!) and added a couple of superfoods on top for extra nutrition.
You can make this easy snack in less than 5 minutes and it’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and it contains no refined sugar.

Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door:
Tip #1: I used homemade cashew butter for this recipe which is really easy to make. Just take 2 cups of raw cashews and add them to a food processor and process until they become a smooth and creamy nut butter. This will take about 3 – 5 minutes as they will turn from nuts, to cashew flour, then to nut butter. Make sure you scrape the sides every minute or so to help it along. It will make approximately 1 cup of nut butter that you can save for later and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
Tip #2: It’s much easier to spread the nut butter on the banana if it is a fresh, firm banana.
