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 (affiliate link) because I never know when hunger will strike.
There have been times when my car has broke 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.
What Are They Made Of?
These Tropical Fruit Roll-Ups are made with banana, pineapple, mango, and lime juice. There are no preservatives or ingredients you can't pronounce, so you'll feel good about serving these to your kiddos.
- Mix banana, pineapple, mango, and lime juice in a food processor.
- Spread mixture on a Teflon lined dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for 8-12 hours, or until it's dry to the touch.
- Slice into 1" strips.
Homemade fruit roll-ups will last up to a month if stored properly. Store in a cool dark location in an airtight container.
- Blend fruit in a food processor or high speed blender until there are no chunks of fruit.
- You can use fresh or frozen fruit.
- Spread mixture on a Teflon lined dehydrator sheet. 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 1" strips with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
- 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 sorbet while you're at it then you get two recipes for the price of one!

Here's the dehydrator that I have. It's perfect for making fruit leather as well as other raw recipes.
Tropical Fruit Roll-Ups
- 1 banana
- 1 cup chopped mango
- 1 cup chopped pineapple
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Mix all 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.
