|Mango Fruit Roll Ups|
Fruit Roll Ups are basically fruit based snack in which fruits are pureed, dried, cut and rolled into pieces. The drying part can be done using sunlight, dehydrators or even using oven. These are also called Fruit leather.
Today I am going to share a very simple Fruit Roll ups recipe. This recipe requires no cooking and no baking. I have shown the method for two fruits – Kiwi and Mango (I just love mangoes). You can use other fruit like strawberries, raspberries or peach. No artificial colours and preservatives are added to it.
It is sultry hot these days in almost every state of India. The temperatures are soaring up to 45 degrees Celsius in some states including where I stay. People are sharing some really funny and unbelievable videos across Internet where there are making omelette or frying papad on the heavy stones in afternoon which are kept directly under sunlight without using fire or anything (Can you believe that :-/ ). I also wondered why not make good use of these summers and especially this blazing sun. After all, someone has rightly said “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” :D. My version would be:
I tried making Fruit roll ups by keeping the pureed fruits directly under sun and you can see yourself I got these delicious rolls just in two days .
I really liked the idea of making fruit roll ups especially as healthy snack. It is a kids friendly recipe as it is neither strong in terms of flavours nor it contains added colours and preservatives. It is fuss free way of making them eat fruits. It can be given in kids tiffin or even adults can carry it in their snack boxes. You can even use these recipe if any of the fruits you bought is too sour and cannot be eaten directly.
I am using sugar here as my kiwis were really sour. If the fruits are sweet enough you can lessen the amount of sugar or replace it with homey. Adding lemon is also personal choice. I like the tanginess it gives in every bite. The Fruits Roll Up recipe is really easy and makes for wonderful kids activity in summers.
Hope you would like this yummy Fruit Roll Ups recipe.
List Of Ingredients: (Makes 5-6 Rolls)
- Fruit Pulp- 3/4 cup
- Sugar-1/4 cup (can be adjusted as per your own taste)
- Lemon Juice -1 tsp
Steps to Prepare:
Keep stirring the puree. We have to heat it till it reaches sticky consistency. The main purpose here is to evaporate excess water.
You can also skip parchment paper altogether and grease the tin directly using oil/butter.
I tried both the ways-lining the tin using parchment paper and secondly oiling the tray directly.
