These healthy fruit roll-ups are super yummy and easy to make. you can combine so many different fruits together to create forever new fruit roll-ups yumminess. I have never tasted a “bad” combination of fruit together yet. Every different one we have made was good.
These are great to make for lunches or potlucks. My kids love to grab one for snacks and throw in their bag for hikes or long drives.
The store bought fruit rollups are filled with unhealthy sugars and oils to make them last a long time on shelves in the store. These ones don’t have as long a shelf life but they are 100% healthy and oooohhh so scrumptious.
Let’s get into it…
Put some fruit, sweetener, lemon juice in a blender. Blend. Dehydrate. Eat. Done.
It really is that simple. I make huge batches so they last a week or so in the house. You can also freeze them if you make too many so they don’t go bad. It’s best to keep them in the fridge so no warm moisture gets on the fruit roll-up.
To spread it really thin I use a long bendable spatula or a long cake icing tool you can get at Walmart.
Some good combinations are:
Bananas, strawberries, maple syrup, lemon juice
Bananas, pears, apples, maple syrup, lemon juice
Bananas, kiwis, apples, maple syrup, lemon juice
Bananas, strawberries, raspberries, maple syrup, lemon juice
When you make these let me know what fruit combination you tried and if it was yummy so others can also try it. 🙂
Healthy Fruit Rollups
Very healthy snack the kids will love!
- 3 cups Fresh fruit combination
- 3 tablespoons Sweetener (maple syrup or agave to taste, can add more or less)
- 2 teaspoons Fresh lemon juice
Put all the fruit you picked and the sweetener and lemon juice in the blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour onto a Teflex dehydrator sheet, and spread to 1/8″ thick. Make it pretty thin so it rolls easily when dried. The thicker it is the longer it takes to dehydrate.
Let dehydrate for 12 hours or more. Check to see if it's totally dry and peels off easily. Once dry you can cut into strips and roll in parchment or plastic. Store in airtight container in fridge or freeze.
TIP: you can take the whole sheet off the Teflex and place onto a big piece of parchment paper and cut around the edge to be the same size as the fruit sheet. then use a pizza slicer and cut straight through the parchment underneath and it will be easy to roll up instead of cutting strips of parchment later.
If you don’t have a dehydrator you can use your oven at the very lowest temperature. Some ovens go as low at 140 F or around 170 F. Instead of using a dehydrator sheet you would use a cookie baking sheet with a silicone baking mat on the baking sheet. Spread the same thickness of 1/8 inches and put into the oven for 8-10 hours.
I’d love to see your fruit rollups! you can post a link to any you make below or post a pick on the Facebook page and I’ll share it! Enjoy!
