Homemade Fruit Leather

Homemade Fruit Leather

Easy, Healthy and Affordable!


3 cups of fruit of choice (rinsed, dried, pitted etc.), or 2 whole mangos
  * I like to combine fruit like banana and strawberry, apple/mango etc. Get creative! Even add some vegetable purees!
  *If using more tart fruits, you can use 1Tbsp of agave nectar to sweeten the mixture.
Parchment paper or silicone baking mats

Heat oven to 175 Degree F.
Add fruit into a food processor and blend until smooth

Place silicone baking mat or parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Spread mixture onto a  silicone baking mat/ parchment paper about 1/8 inch thick.

Place in the oven and let dehydrate for 3 hours.  Increase or decrease time based on the thickness of your mixture.

Let cool, cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Roll fruit strips and store in an airtight plastic bag or container.

* You can also use a food dehydrator if you have that luxury!
