I don't know any kid who doesn't love fruit roll ups. If it's up to my kids, they would eat an entire box of it in a single setting. Besides the fact that they are pricey (when you go through as much of it as we do), some of them also contain a lot of sugar and artificial dyes. This past weekend, my best friend and I went grocery shopping together, we came across an amazing deal on strawberries so I ended up buying 3 cases (24 lbs. total). I kid you not, it was $1 for each case of fresh strawberries (8 lbs. per case). I ended up dehydrating a case of it, but I was left with 2 cases that needed to be consume. That's when I decided to make some fruit rolls ups with them.
For each sheet of fruit roll ups, you will need
* 3 cups of strawberries
* 1 tablespoon of pure honey.
I pureed the strawberries with organic pure honey until I got a smooth consistency. Then I poured it out onto the a sheet for my dehydrator.
I keep our's in a glass jar on the kitchen counter because they don't last more than 2 days. But when I make a huge batch of it, I store extras in a freezer ziplock bag inside my freezer.
I highly recommend buying seasonal fruit at your local farmer's market or supermarket. This will help lower the cost of your ingredients and when fruits are in season, they are sweeter so no sugar is required for this recipe.
Happy Paleo snacking !
