I love coming up with healthy, tasty, quick and easy after school snacks that Peyton can enjoy and I can feel good about giving her. Today, I made Peyton some fruit sushi with the help of Once Again Hazelnut Spread.
Once Again Hazelnut Spread is an organic and sustainable product created by Jeremy Thaler and Constance Potter out of their passion for creating healthy products that are socially conscious at the same time. But where does the racoon come in that is on all the packaging and the mascot for Once Again? Well, it’s a cute story. In the early days of Once Again, 4 little baby racoons lived on the grounds and hung around the factory. With no parent racoons around, the workers adopted the little racoons and took care of them. Those little babies loved the nut butters being created at Once Again and adored the workers. The workers felt the same way, but there was one little racoon that stood out, Rocky. The baby racoons stayed with the workers until they were old enough to fend for themselves, then they were released back into the forest. But they had touched the hearts of everyone so they created a plush version of Rocky and he became the mascot of Once Again. The racoon became the symbol for their wholesome nature, closeness and responsibility to the earth and the nature of their product.
Today, I’m making Peyton fruit sushi with Once Again Hazelnut Spread. Here is a list of everything you’ll need to recreate this at home –
Fruit Leather (we are using strawberry)
Fresh Fruit, sliced – we are using strawberries and bananas
Once Again Hazelnut Spread
First, lay your fruit leather flat on the wax paper. Next, spread a thin layer of Once Again Hazelnut Spread on the fruit leather. Then lay the fruit in one layer and roll the fruit leather the long way until the edges touch. Slice and serve!
This was a hit with Peyton. She loves fruit and hazelnuts so this was the perfect treat for her. And it was fun to make!
Little side note, use the wax paper or you might not be able to get the fruit leather up off the plate. Trust me, I speak from personal experience!
