Fruit leathers are a great source of fruit, vitamins, and calories. I had a ton of them this summer, and so did Cruz. Unfortunately, we ended up spending a lot of money and wasting a lot of plastic. SOOOO…..we decided to try to make them at home!
My mother, of course, is a pro at anything homemade and has her own food dehydrator where she dries different fruits left and right. Although they are great, personal food dehydrators aren’t exactly common. So below is my attempt to recreate an oven-only recipe for Fruit Leathers from Weelicious (which, btw, is an awesome blog).
* 3 cups of fruit (whatever is in season, fresh, and local!)
* 2 tablespoons of honey
* In a blender, blend fruit and honey until it looks so delicious that you want to drink the entire pitcher
