Send your kids off with sliced fresh fruit or berries, applesauce, or this easy and healthy homemade strawberry fruit leather.

 

(Makes 8 Long Strips)

  • 3 Cups Strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp Honey

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

2. Remove the stems from the strawberries and rinse.

3. Place the strawberries and honey in a blender and puree until smooth.

4. Pour the mixture on to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread with the back of a spoon or spatula in a large rectangle (my rectangle was 11 x 15 inches) making sure that the mixture is completely even.

5. Bake for 2-3 hours (or until it's dry and not sticky to the touch). Remember, cooking times will vary depending on how thick you spread your mixture and how much water (juice) is naturally in the fruit. *Every oven is different, so the cooking time maybe less then 2 hours if your oven tends to be hot.

6. Allow to sit and cool at room temperature. It takes several hours for the fruit to soften up (when you first take the leather out of the oven the edges will be a bit dry and crispy, but if you allow it to sit overnight it softens up nicely).

7. Cut with a knife or pizza cutter into strips or use scissors, keeping the paper on, and then roll the leather into "roll ups".

8. Serve.
