Before my dehydrator that I love so much, I use to purchase Fruit Roll-ups and Foot-by-the-foot, which is another, so called fruit treat all to find out that, none of these treats are good for your kids, and they contain, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup and sugar, and barely any fruit.
I will admit that the first batch I made, did not turn out at all -
I forgot to grease the dehydrator sheet, and ended up scraping little flakes of dried up strawberries off the plastic with a knife...
But in my next batch; I tried adding a banana, and covering the dehydrator sheet with a thin layer of coconut oil –
All you need is some time and some fruit.
Fruit of your choosing… raspberries, strawberries or blackberries the list goes on have fun… experiment.
My recipe makes 10-12 fruit leather rolls, but it can easily be doubled or quadrupled to fit your needs
What I used:
1 whole container fresh strawberries
In your food processor, puree the strawberries and banana into a thick fruity paste, adding water as needed.
Next, grease your dehydrator sheet with a thin layer of coconut oil and cover with fruit mixture, using a spatula to make sure it's spread evenly. Dehydrate on 118 degrees for 8 to 12 hours, or overnight - fruit rolls should be pliable, but not sticky.
Cut into equal strips, and roll into cylinder shapes.
These are perfect for when you're on the go –
I'd suggest keeping some in the fridge for whenever you need a quick and healthy snack.
Thanks for stopping by.
