Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh fruit chopped (any mixture of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, pears, apples, pineapple, mango)
  • 1/2 cup fresh vegetables chopped (spinach, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini)
  • 1/4 cup honey or other natural sweeteners if desired (honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, vanilla extract, almond extract, orange extract, lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, apple juice)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. Line 2 small, rimmed baking sheets or 9×13 pans with plastic wrap and set aside. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and pureé until smooth. Pour into prepared pans and smooth out with a spatula so that the mixture is a uniform 1/8th of an inch thick.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 4 to 8 hours, or until fruit is thoroughly dried. Remove from oven and let cool. Remove from plastic wrap and place firmly on pieces of plastic wrap on a flat work surface. Using a scissors, trim the edges and cut into 1- to 1.5-inch strips. Roll strips up and store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • Most batches will produce 2 pans of roll-ups, but some will produce more.
  • Silicone baking mats will work great for this recipe, too.
  • Frozen fruit will work! Be sure to thaw the fruit first for the best consistency.
  • If you are seeking creativity for your kids to get their veggies, try adding some veggie power! Many veggies will alter the flavor of the finished product, so I recommend adding vegetables in small amounts.
  • The only vegetable that I've been able to use without limitation is the good ol' tomato. You get the vitamin A, antioxidants and sweetness. Spinach is another powerhouse option that doesn't overpower, but should be used moderately when thrown in.
