Cutie Fruity Sushi

The following article was adapted from the peta2 blog.

These adorable and kid-friendly treats are a unique spin on traditional sushi. While we’ve already gotten in touch with our inner child by making mock-i rolls (featuring vegan mac ‘n’ cheese and burger-style crumbles), this recipe is perfect for satisfying your
sweet tooth.


These cutie fruity sushi rolls will brighten up your day. Feel free to use whatever fruits you like. Get creative by cutting your favorite fruits, like kiwi, into shapes using cookie cutters. And get the kids in the kitchen so that they can get in on the fun and create their own.

So what will your cutie fruity sushi contain? Let me know in the comments below, and enjoy!

Cutie Fruity Sushi

3 Tbsp. margarine
1 10-oz. tub Ricemellow Crème (or a vegan marshmallow ice cream topping)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. agave nectar (optional)
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal1/2 box Fruit by the Foot
Swedish Fish
Fresh fruit of your choice, in bite-size pieces (I used kiwi, starfruit, and blackberries)

  • Melt the margarine in a pan, then add the marshmallow crème, vanilla extract, and agave nectar. Mix well. Gradually add the Rice Krispies, and stir frequently over low heat to prevent burning (and damage to the Snap, Crackle, and Pop!).
  • Pour the mixture into a greased pan and let cool.
  • Cut the treats into small rectangles.
  • Wrap each rectangle in a piece of Fruit by the Foot and top with the fresh fruit or Swedish Fish.

    I tried to make these for a party today. I followed directions precisely and the rice crispies totally fell apart when I tried to cut them. They had cooled in the fridge but were useless when i tried to put the sushi together 🙁 I want to try this idea again, but would definitely use vegan marshmallows instead of vegan fluff!

    Fruit by the foot is a gummy snack. you will find it in any grocery store with all the other gummy snacks. In the picture it is what everything is held together by. It is long and skinny and comes rolled up, it’s a foot long gummy snack. Swedish fish is also a gummy, but would be in the candy isle. It is a red fish and is pictured above. Can’t believe you hadn’t heard of these, I don’t think my child hood would have been complete without either of these gummy snacks. They are in every grocery or convenience store, shouldn’t be hard to find.

    I am going to make these for my sister’s baby/wedding shower. Too cute, and will show everyone that vegan food is yummy too, and not all “rabbit food”

    They are beautiful and look delish, plus nothing is killed in the process.

    I know my daughter will love these treats. However, I will have to use a different rice crispies that is gluten-free for her. I never heard of Fruit by the Foot Swedish Fish, I hope they have it at my local health food store, as well as Ricemellow creme (never heard of it). This should be fun to do and yummy, I’m sure Holly will love it, I think I will even do it as one of the appertizers, or deserts for her birthday party. 🙂 Thank you Peta, We love you because we love animals, and you always educate us.
