When I was a kid, my aunt used to make us fruit leather especially Mango leather. It was healthy, fun, and I’m sure she felt good about making it for us. Then Fruit Roll-ups came out. Those were not so healthy. Homemade fruit is the perfect snack for any health conscious foodies. I thought it is a time to return to the roots and make my own for my son. This no-sugar added recipe is great as a children’s snack – they won’t be able to tell the difference!Ingredients
- 2 large sweet ripe mangoes, peeled and cut in chunks
- Juice of 2 limes
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place a sheet of parchment paper in a baking sheet. Place all ingredients in a food processor or a good blender. Pulse until smooth. You can add sugar if mango is sour.
Spread mixture over the sheet with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Make sure the mixture is evenly spread over the sheet and not too thick or thin and bake for 2-4 hours, or until fruit leather is dry (cooking times will vary, depending on how thick you spread the mixture, and how much water is in the fruit). Allow to cool completely.
