Freezable Peanut butter and Jelly Sushi for kid’s lunches

Here’s a cute freezable idea, of course. Now we have chopsticks on hand at my house, due to my heritage.  Just in case you need a pair, swing by a Chinese take-out and grab a pair to include in your child’s lunch box. My take on this fun project: make it healthy with REAL ingredients and make it worthwhile by freezing extra. Then you can do it a couple of times during the month with very little effort. Thaw and pack. Don’t forget chopstick–it’s sushi!

The recipe included suggested name brands, but here’s how I would make it:


  • 2 tablespoons All Natural Peanut butter without hydrogenated oils
  • 2 tablespoons low sugar or all natural fruit juice pectin Jam, Jelly or Preserves of your choice
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread without high fructose


  1. REMOVE crusts from bread. With a rolling pin or large soup can, completely flatten bread.
  2. SPREAD 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 tablespoon fruit spread on each slice of bread
  3. ROLL each slice into a tight spiral. Cut each spiral into 4 pieces.

What do you freeze and pack for lunch?
