What is Furutu Sando?

Furutu Sando, or Fruit Sandwich in English, is a fruit sandwich originating from Japan. Even though the concept sounds simple, Furutu Sando has a very attractive appearance and delicious taste.

Furutu Sando consists of two pieces of soft bread spread with sweet cream, such as whipped cream or cream cheese. Between the two slices of bread, fresh fruit such as strawberries, bananas or apples are arranged neatly and beautifully. The result is a sandwich that looks like a work of art and delivers a pleasant taste sensation with every bite.

Materials needed

Before starting, make sure you have the following materials:


  • 8 slices of soft bread, trim the edges neatly


  • 250 grams of whipped cream
  • 100 grams of cream cheese
  • 50 grams of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  • 2 strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Other fruits according to taste, such as kiwi, oranges, or grapes

 Decoration (optional):

  •  Mint leaves
  •  Whole fruit for garnish

Manufacturing Steps

1. Make Cream

In a large bowl, combine the whipping cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract (if using). Beat the ingredients with a mixer or whisk until fluffy and soft.

2. Preparing Bread

Cut the edges of the bread neatly using a sharp knife. You can shape the bread into a rectangle or circle, depending on your preference.

3. Spread the bread with cream

Spread the cream evenly on one side of the bread. Make sure to spread all the way to the edges of the bread so the cream doesn’t ooze out when the sandwich is assembled.

4. Arranging Fruit

Arrange the fruit slices neatly on top of the cream on the half of the bread that has been smeared with cream. Arrange the fruit in an interesting pattern or design to give your sandwich a beautiful look.

5. Closing the Sandwich

Cover the part of the bread that has been arranged with fruit with other bread that has been smeared with cream. Press gently to seal the sandwich and make sure the cream doesn’t ooze out the sides.

6. Decorate (Optional)

If you want to give it an interesting finishing touch, you can decorate the top of the sandwich with mint leaves or whole fruit as garnish.

7. Cutting and Serving

Using a sharp knife, cut the sandwiches into smaller pieces. Serve your Furutu Sando on a beautiful plate and it’s ready to be enjoyed.

Tips and Variations

1. Choose fresh fruit

To get maximum taste, choose fresh and ripe fruit. Fruit that is too ripe or even too unripe can affect the taste and texture of your Furutu Sando.

2. Experiment with Different Fruits

Feel free to experiment with different types of fruit that you like. Fruit combinations like strawberries, bananas, and apples are classic, but you can also try other fruits like kiwi, oranges, or grapes for a wider variety of flavors.

3. Try a Different Cream

Besides whipped cream and cream cheese, you can also try other creams such as mascarpone cream or patisserie cream for different flavor variations. Make sure to adjust the amount of sugar according to the flavor of the cream you are using.

4. Add a Touch of Other Flavors

To give it a unique taste, you can add other ingredients such as honey, jam or cinnamon powder to the cream. This will give a more complex taste sensation to your Furutu Sando.

5. Make a Vegan or Dairy-Free Version

If you follow a vegan diet or have a dairy allergy, you can make a version of Furutu Sando using plant-based cream or fruit-based cream such as banana cream or avocado cream.

How to Store Furutu Sando

If you have leftover Furutu Sando, you can store it in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Make sure to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or store it in a closed container.

However, it is recommended to enjoy Furutu Sando as soon as possible after making it so that the texture of the bread remains soft and the fruit remains fresh.
