Is everyone on the edge of their seat? I know that my whole family is totally amped up with anticipation. Why? Because Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved. is coming out tomorrow. Yes that’s right December 8, Illumination Entertainment’s Minions is hitting the stores and our DVD players! WE CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Why am I so excited? EASY. My now 6 year old has been obsessed with those adorable minions for years. It’s the first character that he seemed to totally love, and they still can make him giggle like no other. My 6 year old isn’t fantastic with his words, but for minions? He gets his words out perfectly. I had to make it special to get the new Minions movie Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack. You need to go order them CLICK HERE TO FIND A STORE TO PREORDER! Pre-order because there are adorable gift packs with cool additions that you’re going to want! (One has Metal Packaging, One comes with a Water Bottle, One with a lunch bag – I mean the biggest choice is which addition do you want???).

I want to make Minions movie night special at our house – my 6 year old (almost) demands it. So I had to practice. We’re having a viewing party and it’s going to be so fun. Of course a viewing party requires a few fun snacks right? And goggles all the little minions needed some goggles…but Of course we needed food. I decided to make Fruit Sushi Rolls because yes that’s so fun right? Finger food is where it’s at in my house, and Fruit Sushi was on my mind. (If you need the recipe in printable form it’s at the bottom).
First you need 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened) and 4 ounces of strawberry banana (hahah yes banana) yogurt. Blend them together (hint I always beat the cream cheese first). Set your mix aside and cut up some fruit. I used a Strawberry Kiwi combo for one roll and a Orange Banana combo for the other.
You’ll need sweetened coconut flakes for this part (a bunch or a little up to you – it’s the “rice” of the sushi) and tortillas. Take a tortilla and spread the cream cheese/yogurt over whole thing. I generously added coconut. (I’ll give you a hint – if you want a super tight sushi roll use less ingredients than me – I didn’t care and wanted every bite to be yummy. I’m not a professional sushi roller but I don’t have any leftovers – so it must have been delish).
Top coconut with desired fruit and roll up tightly. I found that it really helped to refrigerate the rolls at this point if you wanted them to stick together as you cut. Before serving cut the ends off so you have a delightful sushi roll. Serve to your favorite people and they will love you for it.
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
