These easy homemade Cherry Banana Fruit Roll-Ups are a healthy snack. Made in a dehydrator.
I thought I'd put my dehydrator to good use by making some Cherry Banana Fruit Roll-Ups. They are an easy and healthy snack.
I love to carry a snack or two in my purse because I never know when hunger will strike. I like to eat small meals and snacks throughout the day.
These are the perfect portable snack. They're slightly sticky but nothing a little licking of the fingers can't take care of.
I plan on making a bunch of fruit leather for my next road trip. Let's see how many different combinations I can come up with.
What's great about these homemade fruit roll-ups is they are all natural and sugar-free. There are brands that have corn syrup, sugar, or both in their fruit roll-ups.
They also have some weird ingredients that I can't pronounce. No thank you.
When I was an elementary school teacher I saw firsthand how much kids love fruit roll-ups. Kids would bring them in their lunches or for a snack.

- Blend fruit in a food processor until there are no chunks of fruit.
- You can use fresh or frozen fruit. I used frozen because that's what I had on hand.
- Spread mixture on a Teflon lined dehydrator tray. It should be about ⅛" to ¼" thick. If it's spread too thin it will crack in spots.
- Dehydrate at 110°. Any higher than 118° and you start lose enzymes and nutrients.
- Check on fruit leather after eight hours. I had mine going for about 12 hours because I started it in the evening and checked on it when I woke up.
- The fruit leather is done when it's dry to the touch.
- Use a butter knife to lift the fruit leather off of the Teflon sheet. It should peel off easily.
- Slice with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
- Cut parchment paper the same size to roll the fruit leather in. This isn't necessary but can prevent them from sticking together.

Here's the dehydrator that I have. It's perfect for making fruit leather as well as other raw recipes.
Cherry Banana Fruit Roll-Ups
- 2 cups cherries
- 1 banana
- Mix ingredients in a food processor. Spread mixture on a teflon lined dehydrator tray. Spread it about ⅛" to ¼", but make sure you can't see through it. If it's too thin it will have holes in it.
- Dehydrate at 110° for 8 - 12 hours. The fruit leather is done when it's completely dry and slightly sticky to the touch. Use a butter knife to lift the fruit leather off the sheet. You should be able to peel it off the teflon sheet easily.
- If desired, you can cut parchment paper the same size as the fruit roll-ups to roll them in.
