For big kids and small, this sweet and colourful recipe by The Good Grocer IGA makes a delicious afternoon treat.
This juicy treat is a delightful alternative to packaged roll-ups, and it’s so easy to make with fresh, seasonal fruit.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 4-6 hours
- 3 cups fresh fruit (you can use one type or mix it up with a combination, like raspberries and strawberries)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 60°C or the lowest temperature that your oven will go.
- Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
- Line a tray with baking paper and pour fruit blend onto paper and spread to ½ cm thick.
- Place tray in the oven and dehydrate for 4 to 6 hours or until the middle is no longer tacky.
- Allow to cool and remove from the baking paper.
- Use scissors to cut into 2 ½ cm wide strips.
- Cut baking paper into strips slightly wider than your fruit strips. Then lay the fruit strips onto the baking paper and roll to create homemade roll-ups.
A note from our HBF dietitians
This is a great way to reduce waste and use up fruit that has gone a little soft and is past its best.
However, remember that removing the moisture will concentrate the sugar and increase the stickiness of this snack.
After eating these snacks, we encourage a drink of water to rinse the teeth.
Whole fruit (frozen or fresh) is always the better option to meet your the recommended serves of fruit. Keep these sweet treats as an occasional option.
