I have a hodge-podge of fruit in my fridge this week, so.... I decided to make some fruit roll-ups. I am making 6 different kinds. Here are the ingredients for each one.
I blended each set of ingredients in my blender.
Berry Apple Kiwi Roll-Up
1 apple, 2 cups fresh strawberries, 1/4 chia seeds, 1 kiwi, 2 tbsp honey* (I used honey to help cut the acidity of the kiwis)
Strawberry Cranberry Kiwi Roll-Up
1 cup fresh cranberries, 1 1/2 apples, 1 kiwi, 2 bananas, 2 tbsp chia seeds
Strawberry Apple Kiwi Roll-Up
2 kiwis, 1 apple, 1 cup fresh strawberries, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup fresh cranberries, 2 tbsp Honey*
Cranberry Banana Chia Roll-Up
1/2 cup fresh cranberries, 2 kiwis, 2 cups fresh strawberries, 2 bananas, 2 tbsp chia seeds
Apple Cinnamon Bits
2 apples, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp honey
Cocoa Banana Almond Roll-Up
5 ripe bananas, 1/2 cup almonds, 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder, 4 tbsp honey*, 3 tbsp milled flax seed
They are all on different trays. Temp at 135 degrees. Will check after 4 hours to see if I can flip them so they get fully dehydrated on both sides.
See you in about 4 hours :)
Update: After 5 hours, they were still a little wet on the tops, so I left them in for a couple more hours. That seemed to do the trick. I flipped them all and left in for an hour or so longer (the Chocolate Banana Nut one took quite a bit longer - about 9 hours in total - but totally worth it!)
Dehydrating times may vary depending on your dehydrator, your climate and the moisture levels of your fruits. Make sure to check on them during the process to make sure not to over dry - which will make them brittle. Have fun and Happy Dehydrating!
Don't have a Dehydrator? No Problem! You can use your oven instead - Here's the directions and a great recipe for Raspberry Peach Fruit Leather at Oh My Veggies.
