Fruit roll-ups or fruit leather is an awesome snack for kids! But we either find 2 major problems…. many fruits roll-ups or leather contain food dyes and high fructose corn syrup, to name two ingredients that our family tries to avoid…. or you try to buy natural fruit roll-ups or fruit leather and they are so incredibly expensive.
So we learned a long time ago how to make our own. It is cheaper, especially when you can make it with seasonal fruits, and quite easy. In fact, before we learned this a while back, we hadn’t realized just how incredibly simple this is! This is just yet another recipe to add to our collection of recipes to replace a store-bought product!
You can follow this same recipe for pretty much any fruit.
