Fruit strips, roll-ups, fruit leather – whatever you want to call it, kids can’t get enough of the sticky, fruity morsels (and they’re not the only ones). Fruit roll-ups are the perfect snack to squeeze into the lunchbox! And because we know there’s not a tot in the land who doesn’t love a good ol’ fruit roll-up, we’ve put together a roll-up round-up for you to make at home.
There’s nothing wrong with sneaking a few leafy greens into the tyke’s tucker (we all fall guilty on that one). Here’s a sure-fire way to give them their greens without them even batting an eye – Say hello to spinach as you’ve never seen it before. (via Oh My Veggies)
Did somebody say berries? Yum! Grab a slice of summer with these strawberry and raspberry roll-ups with fresh basil and a spritz of lemon. Kids big and small will roll in for this flavour kick. (via Willow Bird Baking)
Can’t decide which fruit combo to make for your mini-me? It’s easy…try these. There’s gorgeous green: kiwi, mango and mint leaves, beautiful blue: blueberries and grape juice, or ridiculously tasty red: strawberries and banana. One of each please! (via Green Kitchen Stories)
Oh plums. If the fruit tree drops far too many fruits for you to handle then making these roll-ups is one way to ease the load. Simply bake plums until soft, blitz in a blender, add a sweetener of choice and bake one last time. Heaven. (via Natasha’s Kitchen)
Are apricots a favourite fruit in your house? If so, the fam will love chomping on a homemade batch of this beauty. Gather stone fruits, chop, sweeten with agave and a drizzle of lemon before pureeing. It really is that easy! (via In the Little Red House)
Be warned – Once you’ve tried this blackberry, mint and lime fruit leather you’ll be making it every week. Rich in fruit flavours with the freshness of mint and the zest of lime everyone’s taste buds will be popping. (via In Sock Monkey Slippers)
Not a lot can beat the classic flavour combination of apples and pears with cinnamon. So rather then trying to take it up a notch, take it a step to the left and make these awesome autumnal fruit-roll-ups. (via Bake Eat Repeat)
