In the summertime fresh fruit is easy to find. In the winter, some modifications may be needed for this recipe. Here is an easy way to make a healthier version of this fun candy treat, that only needs three ingredients.
How to make:
- Step 1: Blend all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until it’s as smooth as can be.
- Step 2: line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour the blended fruit mixture onto the lined pan, then spread it out with a spoon or spatula. It should be as thin as possible without forming holes, about ⅛ – ¼ inch thick.
- Step 3: Set your oven to the lowest temperature setting (between 150-180 degrees). Bake in oven for 4 - 6 hours. The temperature you dry it at determines how long it will take. You will know it is ready when the middle is no longer tacky to touch.
- Once cooled, cut the fruit into 1 inch strips keeping the parchment on. Roll up the fruit and secure with a string or tape.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It will last even longer if you add a paper towel in the container, which will help absorb moisture.
*If you have a dehydrator you can use that for the drying out step of the process.
