Blueberry Pineapple Fruit Roll Ups

Here’s how you make them. It is simple and direct. The biggest part is cutting them into strips and rolling them up at the end.

Blueberry Pineapple Fruit Roll Ups No Refined Sugar

You will need a food dehydrator for this recipe. The hands on time is fairly short. They dehydrate for 18 hours, and you need do nothing while that is happening!

DIY Blueberry Pineapple Fruit Roll Ups

Cooking Time

20 Minutes to prep them, then hands off time…….Dehydrate approximately 18 hours at 135 degrees F.

Yields

25 to 30 Roll Ups

Ingredients

2 Pints of Fresh Blueberries

2 Cups of Fresh Pineapple

2 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup

1 Tablespoon of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon of Quality Gelatin

2 Tablespoons of Hot Water

Directions

Clean the blueberries with a fresh cool water rinse and place them in a high speed blender. Chop the fresh pineapple into chunks, and add it to the blender with the blueberries. Add the maple syrup and lemon juice. Blend until pureed. Now you will add the gelatin. Heat 2 tablespoons of water in your microwave until very hot. Whisk the gelatin into the hot water until it is foamy. Pour this into the blender with the blueberry pineapple mixture, and blend until smooth and incorporated.

Set out six dehydrator trays (my dehydrator is an Excalibur) and line them with non-stick drying sheets that go with your brand of dehydrator). Pour the fruit roll up mixture evenly onto six sheets. Pick up the sheets and swirl by tipping them to spread then out into 8″ circles.

Dehydrate at 135° degrees for approximately 18 hours, or until they are no longer tacky in the center but not crispy. They should still be pliable.

Remove the fruit roll ups from the dehydrator and cool. After they are cool, using kitchen scissors or a sharp knife, slice each roll up into strips. Cut parchment the same width as the fruit strips and roll them up with the parchment. Tie with a string. Place them in a sealed container and store at room temperature.

Banana Pineapple Coconut Leather

Are you ready for a portable treat that is oh so satisfyingly chewy and good for you? Was that a yea? Then these scrumptious snacks are going to make your day! I promised you some fruit roll ups, and this is the first one with more to come. The first time I made these, they were devoured right away, and I had to guard the last one for myself. They aren’t difficult, but you do have to wait for the dehydrator to do it’s job, so it requires patience……I am working on that in many areas of my life. I love the way they make the room smell like I am baking banana bread while they are dehydrating. It is like natural potpourri, but better because you get to eat it!

Banana Coconut Leather

Directions:

Turn your food dehydrator to 135º degrees. Line six dehydrator trays with parchment or teflon inserts.

Ingredients:

6 Ripe Bananas

1 Cup Chopped Fresh Pineapple

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

2 Tablespoons Honey

2 Teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

Add Bananas, Pineapple, Himalayan Pink Salt, Honey, Cinnamon and Lemon Juice to a high speed blender, like this one, and blend until smooth. Add the coconut and blend for 30 seconds. You still want small bits of coconut in it. Pour the batter onto the six trays evenly dispersing.

Now, pick up the tray and tip and swirl in a circular motion to spread the batter evenly. Dehydrate for seven hours, flipping them after six hours. They can go a little longer and be fine too. I have left them for ten hours, they will just be more crunchy instead of chewy. Remove from the dehydrator, cool and roll up with strips of parchment, or you can store them flat. These are a wonderful, yummy, healthy snack! My children’s friends are so envious when they bring them in their lunches! If you like these, stay tuned for more roll up recipes!
