How To Make Fruit Roll Ups

  • Blend your fruit
  • Line the dehydrator trays with parchment paper
  • Spread The fruit mixture in a thin layer
  • After that, dehydrate
  • You will know it’s don’t when it’s no longer sticky

You can use pretty much any fresh fruit or fruit mixture to make your own amazing fruit rollups. My favorite homemade fruit leather is strawberry fruit roll ups.

I like to roll this fruit leather recipe up right in the same parchment paper it baked on and cut into single serve strips.
