Fruit Leather

Transform a classic candy into a healthy treat. Kids will definitely approve!


  • 8 ounces of blueberries
  • 5 ounces of raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons lemon zest
  • 3 mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 3 hours


  1. Preheat oven to 200°. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat. Add all ingredients into a blender and puree. Pour onto silicone mat. Spread evenly using a spatula, leaving a one-inch perimeter. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Turn the temperature down to 150°, rotate the pan and bake for another 1 hour and 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool for 3 minutes.
  2. Cut 7 strips of parchment paper about 2 inches wide each. Cut 7 strips fruit leather about 1¾ inches wide. Place leather on parchment strips and roll. Secure with twine or colorful tape.

TIP: If leather appears to be getting too dry around edges while baking, simply sprinkle a small amount of water on it.
