Fruit Roll Ups are a mainstay in so many children’s lunches, but the stuff you pick up at the grocery store is basically candy! Why not make your own - it’s so easy!
We were inspired by Just a Taste's simple recipe - use the recipe below as a guide! You can substitute the same amount of fruit for any flavor you like! Give it a try for a healthier snack!
- 4 cups diced ripe mango (from about 3 large mangoes) (or use any other fruit that you like in the same quantity!)
- Preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Puree the mango (or other type of fruit that you like!) in a food processor or blender until smooth.
- 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.
- 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.
- Remove the roll-ups from the oven. Cut the sheet into long strips and then roll up the strips.
- The fruit roll-ups will last for up to 1 week when stored in an airtight container.
