Homemade Fruit Roll Ups

Do your children love fruit roll-ups but you don’t want to give them to them because the ingredients list is way too long and impossible to pronounce? Well, what if I told you that my homemade fruit roll ups recipe has just 1 ingredient?

strawberries

Yep! That’s right. It’s made from fresh strawberries and that is it! Of course, you can add a little bit of sugar if you like or while you are weaning your children off the store-bought ones (just gradually reduce the amount of sugar that you add each time you make them until eventually you are no longer adding sugar), but if you are buying strawberries when they are in season (or growing your own strawberries like we are doing this year), you really shouldn’t need to add any sweetener!

These homemade fruit roll ups to require a bit of time to make and there really isn’t any way to speed up the process. Just get them in the oven first thing in the morning to make sure that your oven is freed up in time o start making dinner!

To make them you will need:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups strawberries, stems removed
  • sugar to taste (optional)
  • Equipment needed: food processor or high-powered blender, plastic wrap, parchment paper, jelly roll pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 170F
  2. Line a jelly roll pan with plastic wrap, making sure that the plastic wrap goes over the sides of the pan.
  3. Puree your fruit in a food processor or blender until it has a smooth consistency. If your children are picky, you may want to run the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any seeds.
