With no added sugar or preservatives, this mango fruit leather is the ultimate healthy snack for kids and adults to enjoy.
Making this mango fruit leather at home is easy and requires only two ingredients: mango and lemon juice. I add a little bit of lemon juice to prevent oxidation. There is no added sugar necessary as the fruits are sweet enough.
Once dry, you can simply cut the fruit leather into strips to make fruit roll ups, a perfect tasty treat for kids’ lunchboxes, post workout fuel or healthy snack when you are out and about. Want a show stopping edible healthy add-on for your dessert creations? Fruit leather can be transformed into any shapes or forms.
My kids have always loved fruit roll ups and I found making my own fruit leather much cheaper than buying it from shops. Also, shop-bought fruit roll ups generally contain more wrappers than product so homemade ends up wasting less packaging.
For this recipe, I have used my BioChef Arizona Sol Food Dehydrator which is my secret weapon to make healthy snacks and treats. It takes between 6-8 hours to dry the fruit puree and I would advice that, after 6 hours, you check progress every hour or so. The duration will depend on the performance of your dehydrator.
The massive advantage of the BioChef Arizona Sol Food Dehydrator is that is has an horizontal airflow which ensures even heat distribution so that each tray (front and back) is dried equally. Its vertical shelving design is also really practical as it enables to easily and frequently check on the progress of the dried foods. You can read my review here.
