Recipe Challenge Day 4: Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

Snacks should be healthy and fun. You can even have a sweet healthy snack and feel great about feeding it to the kids! Which brings me to today’s fun, EASY and a sure win with the kids.

Homemade Fruit Roll Ups . I am excited to be able to do this , and can’t wait to try new versions of this with different fruit. It does take awhile to make but I assure you it’s simple. The most work you do is wash, peel, cut and press a button on a food processor.

They were so good! 

  To make the Fruit Roll Ups
This is so simple to make and only one ingredient
You will need the following to make this

  • two baking pans
  • parchment paper to line each baking sheet with
  • spatula
  • food processor


4 mango’s, peeled sliced and pureed ( You actaully need 4 cups of puree, so use how many mango’s it takes to get that many)

Preheat oven to 175F. Line your baking sheets with the paper. After you puree the fruit divide in half , about 2 cups per baking sheet. Pour the mixture out, spread evenly then bake for about 3-4 hours. It should be pliable and dry to the touch when done. Remove from oven and place on wax paper. Cut into strips then roll each up. Easy to do and the kids loved them! I will be making different flavors with different fruits sometime down the line so I’ll share when I make them. Enjoy!

The paper didn’t cut very straight, that’s going to drive me nuts now.

    I need to get a food processor!! I would love to make these. I love the natural fruit rollups and I'm sure these taste even better than the store bought ones!

    I do not have a food processor or I would definitely attempt to make this. I happen to love fruit roll ups myself (can I hear it for apricot). At least you know for sure that there is no added sugar or other additives in these since you are making them yourself!

    These looks great! I've attempted to make these numerous times but they never come out right….. I guess homemade fruit roll ups are just not my forte.

    I tried these a few months ago and couldn't get the mango to dry up. I had them in the oven for almost 6 hours and it just wouldn't work! Next time I do this I'll make sure to spread the puree extra thin… I want this to work for me.. so I guess I should just try again!

      Hmm the only thing I can think of is if you spread them too thick. I noticed in the center it did stay thick in areas so it took longer to bake. Make sure you spread this out really evenly. The bigger the pan the better. Also check your oven temp, if your oven runs too cool, you may have to cook it longer. Don't ever turn the temp up though, it will burn the fruit. I do hope it will work for you!
