Fruit by the Foot

serving time8


  • 1 1/2 cups mango, diced

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberry, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees or the lowest setting.

  2. In a food processor, puree mango until smooth. Transfer into a container with a spout.

  3. Puree strawberries until smooth, and keep in blender or transfer into a separate container with a spout.

  4. Line a sheet tray with a Silpat, plastic wrap, or parchment paper. Pour mango and strawberry puree into alternating stripes, and then run a spatula through to create swirls of color. Make sure puree is flattened out evenly.

  5. Bake 3 to 4 hours, until dry. If the top isn’t dry, flip over and continue to bake until dry to the touch.

  6. Once dehydrated, remove from pan and lay on parchment paper. First, trim the edges off to create a clean rectangle. Cut into long strips, and roll! (Will keep for one week in an airtight container.)

- One of my favorite childhood snacks was Fruit by the Foot, and I'm gonna show you a super easy way to make them at home. Let's get started. Alright, we're gonna start with our mango puree, so I've got some mango already chopped up but we're gonna cut up another mango as well. Just gonna cut off the bottom so we have a flat surface to cut on. Just gonna cut around pit in the center, one big seed there. Alright. And we'll just score this. It should just pop right out like that, and then you just peel them off and this does not have to be pretty, we're sticking it straight into a blender, you just wanna get all that mango in there. And again we're just scoring, we're not going all the way through, just to the skin and you can feel it when you cut it, when you're sort of starting to hit the skin, you'll know not to cut any deeper. You can add a little bit of sugar if you want, if you like it a little bit sweeter, but this fruit is so good right now, it really doesn't need it. Okay, so we're gonna add our mango to our blender and we're just gonna blend 'til smooth and as much of that juice as you can, and let's blend. We'll just give it a little mix, get those big chunks down to the bottom. And just give it another little stir to check the texture but that is really nice and smooth. So let's transfer that to our spouted measuring cup. It's just ease of pouring for when we actually lay our purees out to make our fruit by the foot. So we're gonna do our strawberries now, I'm gonna give this a quick rinse just so we can get some really great colors, and we'll do our strawberry puree. Alright, we got a nice, clean blender now. And let's cut our strawberries. Alright so all we really need to do is take off the tops, we'll give them a little just cut in half just for ease of blending, eh, maybe quarters, this one's kinda big. But again, we're blending these, they don't need to be pretty, just need to be in pieces. And I love this recipe because it's totally a throwback to my childhood in the 90s, and having Fruit by the Foots, but it's a little bit healthier. Let's get our strawberries into the blender, and let's make our strawberry puree. There we go. Magic. Okay, we have our puree, let's make our Fruit by the Foot. So we've got our baking sheet with parchment paper, and we're just gonna pour these in stripes. So I'm gonna start with strawberry. And then we'll do the mango. I'm alternating them because as you will see we're gonna swirl them a little bit, makes some pretty colors. This looks great. And to swirl them we're just gonna use a spatula, just gonna go straight through, give them a swirl, then we're just gonna sort of flatten it out, so that it's nice and even along the parchment, there we go. Our Fruit by the Foot is poured and ready to go dehydrate in the oven. Okay, our Fruit by the Foot are dry. As you can see there's no wet patches here. If there's any wet patches, just leave it in a bit longer, it'll dehydrate. So now that this is done, we're gonna just pull the parchment out and we're gonna cut them. So I'm just gonna trim the edges off. This parchment paper is gonna actually gonna be that backing of that Fruit by the Foot that you peel it off of. Alright, so we've got our nice rectangle and we're gonna cut into our little Fruit by the Foot strips. And these will keep in an airtight container, I'd keep them in the fridge, but you don't have to. They'll last a bit longer though in the fridge. And let's get these rolled. So I've precut some string, I'm just gonna start at the bottom and gently work my way up. Just keep it nice and tight. And then we'll just take some string, give it a little tie. How about that? And the fruit smell as these are dehydrating is just phenomenal. Makes your whole kitchen just smell like great fruit. Alright, and there you have it: strawberry mango Fruit by the Foot, one of my favorite childhood snacks.
