Homemade Fruit Roll-ups
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.

I have also made some with peaches, cinnamon and vanilla yogurt that was delicious! And YES you can make fruit leather with yogurt in it - I was surprised to learn that too!

Thers no directions just how much u use. do i mush by hand or can u use a blender or food processor or both? we dont need gelatin or pectin?

I used a blender. I just puréed it until it was combined and there were no visible pieces. I did not use any gelatin or pectin as most of them have natural pectin from the apples.

These look amazing! I don't have a dehydrator, though... Can you make these in the oven?

Thank you Seanna Lyn, I will look into the drying times for using an oven. :)

did you ever get the drying time for using a oven

Here is one of the sources I found for dehydrating fruit using your oven.

Agave works fine.I been making all my Roll ups with Agave. Banana's are sweet enough so I don't add any sweetener. Thanks for you'r Posting. Enjoy to try some new Recipes.

My dehydrator trays have little holes in them. Will these recipes be so liquidy that they drip through the holes? Old dehydrator I inherited from my mother-in-law. They sound yummy! As for the chai seeds...do you use them for consistensy or for nutritional value? I know nothing about them. Thanks for the recipes!

I have one sheet that came with my dehydrator, and the rest I cover my square sheets with parchment paper. It worked well in a pinch, I still might get some so I am not being wasteful. But you can always get some that fit your trays on Amazon.

in the berry apple recipe it seems the amount of chia seeds has been omitted. how much did you use?
6/16/2012 02:12:00 pm
1/4 cup :)

Did you de-hydrate those in your oven?

Hi FH, I have a stevia plant which I've just stuck in the ground :)

I love the addition of chia seeds, my grand daughters love to eat them out of the jar. I also am a stevia convert. Order it from the internet. Just make sure it is pure stevia. We are going to make the fruit leather for a summer project. Cindy

I purchased a stevia plant at a local herb farm and we make our extract-- maybe you could get one-- the plant was ready to be replaced only cost me approx $7 :-)
