These homemade Tropical Fruit Roll-Ups are an easy healthy snack. Made in a dehydrator.
Here's a snack you can feel good about making for your kids. It has four ingredients, all of which are healthy.
I got the idea for these Tropical Fruit Roll-Ups when I was re-shooting my Tropical Fruit Sorbet. I decided to leave out the almond milk and turn the recipe into fruit roll-ups.
What a great idea indeed! This tropical-flavored homemade fruit leather is super fruity and flavorful.
This healthy snack is perfect for on-the-go. I plan on making a batch for my next road trip. It's nice to have a variety of vegan snacks for a vacation.
I like to keep a snack or two in my purse because I never know when hunger will strike.
There have been times when my car has broken down or my errands take longer than expected and I need a snack NOW. Those are the times I'm glad to be prepared with food in tow.

📖 Variations / Additions
- Dragon fruit
- Passion fruit
- Maple syrup, agave syrup, or simple syrup
- The mixture 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 to 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.
- Use a butter knife to lift the fruit leather off of the Teflon sheet. It should peel off easily.
- Cut parchment paper the same size to roll fruit leather in. This isn't necessary but can prevent them from sticking together.
- Store in a cool dark location. Tropical Fruit Leather will last up to a month if stored properly.
- Make a batch of Vegan Tropical Sorbet while you're at it then you get two recipes for the price of one!
