Homemade Fruit Leather

Easily make one of your favorite childhood snacks in the comfort of your home.


  • 2 1/2 cups fresh fruit (I used strawberry and mango)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap and spread the mixture evenly onto the baking sheet so that it is 1/8 -1/4 inch-thick. Bake at 170F for 4-6 hours, until the entire surface is dry, but not crunchy. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  3. Use scissors to clean and straighten the edges of the fruit leather, then cut it into strips. Peel the plastic wrap off the back. If desired, place a strip of wax paper on top of the fruit leather, roll it up and secure with some string.
