Homemade Fruit Rollups (or Fruit leather) is such a healthy snack to make at home.
Did someone say homemade fruit roll-ups? Fruit leather or fruit rollups whatever you call them, you can’t go wrong with making them at home. Plus it’s nice to know exactly what’s in them…no added preservations. I have the most fond memories of walking into my Grandma’s home in the Fall and smelling the sweet fruity aroma of drying fruit leather. Every time we make these at home the aroma takes us back. Strawberry, raspberry, peach, mango, pineapple, plum… the list of different flavors or flavor combinations you can make goes on and on. What may very well be the best part (aside from eating them) is how easy they are to make.
These homemade fruit roll-ups are so easy and delicious. Your family and friends will love them, I know it. The best part is that you don’t have to feel so bad about it tasting like candy because they’re made with whole fruit (plus a little sugar, if needed). So they’re even a little healthy. YAY!
Homemade Fruit Roll-ups
Homemade fruit roll ups are a must when all fresh fruit is in season.
- fruit of your choice peach, mango, pineapple, plum, strawberry, blueberry
- sugar if needed
Wash fruit. Peel/core/pit fruit then cut up in chunks. Put in blender until pureed.
Pour pureed fruit about 1/4 inch thick onto a baking sheet or food dehydrator sheet LINED with parchment paper. The parchment paper will make peeling it off the sheet much easier.
We used the Excalibur Food Dehydrator. When using this dehydrator it takes about 4-5 hours at 135 degrees.

That’s it! After they are dried, you’ll want them to be soft not crunchy plus slightly tacky, but not sticky. When they’re ready, cut into squares or strips then roll them up in strips of wax paper and store in an air-tight container.
