Homemade Fruit Roll up 1 — Health, Kids

Making your personal fruit roll-ups is as uncomplicated as blending fruit!  There are a handful of uncomplicated tricks that if you stick to, your fruit roll-ups will turn out thick, peelable, and scrumptious!

My little ones adore, adore, adore fruit snacks, fruit roll-ups……anything fruity and sweet.  They would sit down and consume 5 packs of fruit snacks no dilemma!  I just do not really feel excellent about them consuming all that sugar!  I do really feel excellent about them consuming fruit in one more type even though!  My 5 year old has texture difficulties, specially with fruit and so in some cases consuming a piece of fruit is hard for her.  But she will consume any fruit blended.

How To Make Fruit Roll-ups Without a Dehydrator

STEP 1: The 1st step is to blend your fruit.  To make a single pan, you will have to have about 5 cups of fruit.  It can be any sort of fruit!  We have attempted it with lots of distinctive sorts, and they all turn out scrumptious.  Blend till quite smooth.

STEP 2: This next step is only vital if your little ones have texture difficulties, and your fruit has tiny seeds (strawberries, raspberries, and so forth)  Pour your mixture into a fine mesh strainer, and stir till it has all moved by means of.

STEP 3: This next step is the most essential!  Pour your fruit mixture onto a baking sheet.  Using a silpat, or silicone mat will give you the very best good results.  You can also attempt making use of wax paper, freezer paper, or parchment paper, but none of these will give you the exact same high quality as making use of a silicone mat.

The important is spreading it quite thick and even.  The edges normally get performed the quickest, and can develop into thin and brittle, and so spread the mixture thick on the edges.  The more even you can get your mixture, the superior it will turn out.  I leave mine at least 1/4 inch thick in all spots.

STEP 4: Once it is smooth and thick all more than, you pop it in your preheated oven at 200 degrees F.   It will bake for 4-6 hours based on how thick you spread it, and how hot your oven cooks.

Once it has dried and is not thick and sticky in the middle, it is performed.  This normally requires in between 4 and 6 hours based on how thick your puree is. You can then peel it, and reduce it into strips.

We rolled ours up in freezer paper and secured a cute ribbon about it.  This is a fantastic treat to send in your little ones lunches, let them consume just after college, or even at activities and sports!
