Take any fruit you have laying around (we’ll be showing you a peach fruit leather recipe, mango fruit leather recipe, and plum fruit leather recipe), puree, sweeten (or not) and bake it into a nutritious, chewy, healthy, high-energy snack. If you don’t have a lot of fruit just laying around, try fresh fruit sourced from Farm Fresh to You. Not only will you receive deliciously fresh fruit, but you will also be supporting a family farm. What’s better than that? Now, let’s get into this fruit leather recipe!
Fruit Leather Recipe
What You’ll Need:
- 1 + ½ cup of fruits (we’re using peach, plum and mango)
- 1-2 tbsp honey
- Baking sheets
- Kitchen scissors
- Parchment paper or baking mat
- Kitchen twine
What To Do:
- Preheat the oven to 170°F/75°C.
- Blend the fruit together in a blender or Vitamix until well combined. You should have a puree like consistency.
- Add the honey if the fruits aren’t sweet enough or you like extra sweet treats.
- Take your mixture and start spreading it out on the baking sheet protected with parchment or a baking mat. Make sure its dispersed evenly. We spread out our peach pulp first, then our plum, and lastly our mango. We did this to create a shaded fruit leather. However, you can totally just spread out each different fruit pulp separately and on their own baking sheet.
- After all of your pulp is spread out evenly onto your baking sheet, take your spatula or spoon and blend the different fruit pulps together to get a better gradient effect if you’re creating shaded fruit leather like us!
- Bake for 4-6 hours at 170°F/75°C.
- Once finished baking, layer your parchment paper on top of your fruit leather and let it cool completely.
- Once cooled, flip your fruit leather upside down and then peel off the baking sheet.
- Taking your kitchen scissors and proceed to cut away at the edges, getting rid of the excess parchment paper.
- Once excess parchment paper is gone, cut your fruit leather into approx. 1″ straps and roll up.
- Once all of your fruit leather straps are rolled, tie them off with some kitchen twine. Enjoy!
Important Note: Keep in mind that different fruits will require different baking times.
