Homemade Fruit Leather – A Sweet, Delicious and Healthy Snack

Already before we started changing our diet to the better and to absolutely NO sugar, I was thinking about how to make it easy for our kids to adapt to that new lifestyle. And then, I found out about Fruit Leather! 🙂

Our four children were used to eat all kind of unhealthy snacks from biscuits to cakes and ice cream. I knew, if I wanted to win that game, I had to provide great alternatives to the sugary snacks we used to eat before.

It didn’t take me too long, to realize, that dried fruits are something very tasty and it came in handy to buy a small, round dehydrator to make our own dried banana chips and apples in there. No question, these are very nice and healthy snacks, but then I stumbled across a recipe of fruit leather. It was too bad, that there was no way to do it in our round and quite a small dehydrator, but I felt like this must be something awesome and I followed the tip to dehydrate the fruit leather in the oven.

Surely, it was a hassle and not enough space to make enough for our big family, but the results really paid off big time. The kids were in love with my homemade fruit leather as it does not only taste nice, it’s also fun to eat when rolled up all nicely. After I made it a few times inside the oven, it was clear, that we needed a bigger dehydrator, in order to make bigger batches from it.

That was a really good decision, as we use it a lot. But now, I would like to give you the recipe of my homemade fruit leather.

You can use any other fruit you like. Above recipe is one of our favorites, closely followed by Ananas-Raspberry, Mango, Apricot, and Apple-Cinnamon. But you can use your own imagination and creativity to come up with more varieties. Just one last tip before closing this post I found that the fruit leather gets the nicest when some Bananas are added to the mix!
