Fruit Leather

Peach + MangoSONY DSC

This is the perfect snack with the perfect ingredients and my girls loved it! They always seem be eating some type of fruit snack (which sounds really great and healthy) but when you actually look into the store bought fruit leather or fruit by the yard, there is so much added sugar and other unknown ingredients that totally takes away from the FRUIT in fruit snack. In this homemade, all fresh ingredient fruit leather, there is no added sugar and can be made with a large variety of fruits, fresh or frozen.  I have made two flavors that our family has enjoyed; Peach+ Mango is one of my favorites with flavors that make you feel like you are eating a pie and Strawberries+Mint will provide a refreshing taste for both kids and adults.  I love adding herbs and spices into snacks, allowing our girls to be familiar with other flavor profiles.  I hope you enjoy these easy clean sweets as much as we have!

    Hi Kristen, I have my peaches and mangos ready to go, but I don’t have a silpat. Can I use parchment paper instead, or is it time for a bed bath and beyond run?? Thx!

      Hi Kate! Yes you can use parchment paper for the fruit leather. If you happen to be out you might want to grab a silpat because it makes it a little easier to come off and you can reuse! Thanks for reading…enjoy! Kristen
