Ingredients:

  • 4 cups diced ripe mango (from about 3 large mangoes) (or use any other fruit that you like in the same quantity!)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Puree the mango (or other type of fruit that you like!) in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  3. Divide the purée evenly between the two prepared pans, and using an offset spatula, spread the purée as flat and as evenly as possible until it's about 1/8-inch thick.
  4. Bake the purée for 3 to 4 hours. The total baking time will vary depending on the exact thickness of your fruit roll-ups. The fruit roll-ups are done when the purée is dry to the touch and pliable. If the bottom side of the roll-ups is still wet after some time, flip the roll-ups over and continue baking them until they are fully dried.
  5. Remove the roll-ups from the oven. Cut the sheet into long strips and then roll up the strips.
  6. The fruit roll-ups will last for up to 1 week when stored in an airtight container.
