Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups

Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups remind me of my childhood when my dad would go to Fruit and Veg City and stock up on the Banana and Guava variants for us.

I remember watching Cartoon Network with my brothers and sisters and peeling back the fruit roll, then slowly tearing off piece by piece, trying to make the roll-up last as long as possible.

As I grew older I started to dislike anything guava flavoured, so I thought it might be a good time to figure out how to make a roll-up in a different flavour.

I watched a few videos online and it seems the idea is simple – all you need is fresh fruit, lemon juice (to stop browning) honey/sweetener of your choice and a whole lot of patience.

These take 7 – 10 hours to dry, depending on the type of oven you have.

But the result is worth it – a refined sugar, gluten and preservative-free healthy snack.

Make these on a Sunday when you are relaxing at home and have time to spare.

Enjoy,

3. Pour the mixture onto the baking pan and spread evenly to coat the entire paper, but be carefully not to go over the edge of the paper. I used two trays for this recipe

4. Bake for 7 – 10 hours, turning the pan halfway, but you’ll know they are done when you touch them and they are no longer squishy
