Easy All-Natural Fruit Roll Up Recipe

This weekend we went on our first road trip as a family of 3.  We drove 51/2 hours to go to from West, to East Texas to go visit our family. On Saturday we went with my aunt, uncle, grandmother, parents, & nieces to a local orchard to go pick strawberries! I was so excited about this! I have always wanted to go pick fresh fruit! I only like some vegetables, but I LOVE FRUIT!

We got there and they had tons of yummy fruits & veggies for sale.  Some that they grew themselves and some that they bought locally and sold at their orchard.  We started the morning by sampling a lot of fruits....which was a great breakfast! We tried some delicious strawberries, cantaloupe & I got a new found love for peaches!

Then we grabbed some baskets and went and picked strawberries.  It was raining on us, but it was so fun!

Anyways, we had to drive 51/2 hours back with my 5-6lbs of strawberries, so by the time I got home, a good amount were a tad smooshed. So I decided to make some easy, all-natural fruit rolls ups with them!

These fruit roll ups are a great snack for any age! Perfect for kids, and not processed and filled with sugar like store bought fruit roll ups, or good fuel for a workout/run for an adult.

Here's how I did it:

-I filled my blender with strawberries

-I also added a smooshed peach, an apple, and some carrots

-puree the fruit (it worked great in my blender, I didn't use a food processor)

-Add a 1/4 cup of honey

*If you have some flavorless or fruit flavored protein powder, I would suggest adding that as well.  I meant to and then forgot.  I think that would add a lot of goodness to them especially if you want to use them as a fueling snack!

-Put your oven to 170 or as low as it will go

-Put parchment paper down and spread mixture out in a thin even layer

-Bake for 2-3 hours or until fruit roll up is still a tad sticky, but doesn't come off on your fingers

You can cut them with a pizza cutter, and keep roll them with the parchment paper, or I have cut strips and rolled the roll up within itself, and separate from the parchment paper.  And then you have these yummy, all natural snacks!
