Journal Post Featured Image (9)

I’d love to share with you a recipe from my kitchen, to yours.

My homemade fruity roll ups are a real show stopper at school- I get calls from other parents all the time asking how I make them because their children are so interested!

Homemade fruit leather in 4 simple steps

  1. Make fruit puree (apple sauce or other stewed berries) pureed in a blender
  2. Spread on baking paper in a dehydrator (or on a low setting in the oven) until dry but still pliable (not brittle)
  3. Cut into long strips
  4. Roll up and store in an airtight container. Great for school lunches and snacks on the go

*Using brighter fruits 🍓 🍒 in combination with the applesauce as a base is definitely more visually appealing and adds some ping to the flavour. The recipe is forgiving and you can get quite creative with it- adding sugar, lemon juice or anything else you’re inspired to.
