Homemade Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups
My kids love fruit roll ups, I will buy them when they are BOGO at the local grocery store, but when I received a huge box of Fresh From Florida berries the other day from Wish Farms, I decided to do some cooking! Strawberries are naturally sweet and delicious, so I decided to make a simple sweet treat that the kids would love. Homemade Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups. You may have also heard the term, Fruit Leather, but if I told my kids the name was Fruit Leather, they wouldn’t be as interested 😉 So Fruit Roll Ups it is in my house.
You only need THREE simple ingredients to make these strawberry fruit roll ups, but I snuck in a fourth. Shh, don’t tell my kids, but I added in some carrots too! Carrots are also naturally sweet and delicious, so why not add in some extra nutrients?!
You simply use your food processor to blend together the ingredients, then pour it onto parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet that is lining your cookie sheet, and bake!
After 3 – 5 hours at 200 degrees, you will have your own Homemade Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups. They make for a great addition to the kids’ lunchboxes or when you are craving a sweet treat mid-day. Which happens to me just about everyday 🙂
