Our children LOVE fruit roll ups and fruit snacks. You name it, they love it. But have you seen the cost of the natural and organic ones? Fruitabu generally costs over $4 for their 8 pack of fruit rollups. Clif Kidz costs .69 each. Annie's Fruit snacks cost $2.99+
So making them can greatly, greatly reduce the cost of having to purchase them. I have found some great fruit roll up recipes, one that I would love to share with you!
2-3 cups pureed fruit--strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries (can combine these, or just use separately--organic fruit is okay to use).
1 cookie sheet
Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Puree fruit in food processor or blender. You will want to puree approximately 2 cups for a smaller cookie sheet, and 3 cups for a larger cookie sheet. With a spatula, spread the pureed fruit evenly over the cookie sheet.
Bake in a warm oven overnight for 6-7 hours or overnight. Do not overbake!! (I did the first time and the kids HATED it!)
Once it has cooked, peel fruit rollups away from the parchment paper and eat. If you want to store the fruit rollups, do not peel away from the parchment paper. Roll parchment paper and fruit lengthwise. Cut into two-inch strips and store in an airtight container for up to one week.
